Re: NFL 2020 Season

The Lions are who I thought they were. Gave up 3 touchdowns in the 4th quarter to lose at home. And true to form, they had it inside the Bears 20 with around :30 to play, and failed to convert. It's like a script with them.

Pretty good start for the Sun Belt. App beats UNCC, Arkansas State beats Kansas State and UL Lafayette beats #23 Iowa State

Mike Trout became the youngest player to hit 300 HR's and have 200 stolen bases. Playing with the Angels, I'd almost forgotten he was around.

Re: 2020 Official Baseball Season Thread

The Tigers trade Cameron Maybin (for the 3rd time) to the Cubs for an infield prospect. I like Maybin, hopefully he can give the team a boost. Maybin has now changed teams 12 times in his 14 seasons, including 3 stints with Detroit and 2 with the Marlins. A journeyman who's salary has been over $38 ...

Re: 2020 Official Baseball Season Thread

Tigers are back to .500 after a sweep of the Twins. That's three series wins in a row over Cleveland, the Cubs and Minnesota. They even have a player or two who might bring some value at the trade deadline. :thumb:

Re: What will happen with the 2020 college football season?

App now has an away game with.....Marshall, this year. The team also didn't practice for three days this week due to a covid outbreak, but were back on the field yesterday.

I just read that Western Carolina has 2 games now this season. Both away (Liberty and Eastern Kentucky) and in November.

Re: $600 Unemployment Benefit

Not everyone working a restaurant gets tipped out, and certainly not equably when they do. Waitstaff have it good in many places though. They also complain the most, saying "I only make $2.35 an hour". :nod: But some restaurants don't have tips at all. Do you tip people at Burger King? Do people at...

Re: $600 Unemployment Benefit

A lot of restaurant and other type workers don't get full time hours. Companies don't want to pay benefits and really hate chancing having to pay overtime. This is a very service industry oriented area, so not a lot of money is made. Or reported. I figure most people only report a fraction of their...

Re: $600 Unemployment Benefit

Keep in mind that those numbers are the max that a state will pay. Many who qualify for unemployment here don't receive $350/week. I've heard of folks getting $125/week. Then those folks must have been making below minimum wage, or not working full time all of the previous year. Below NC calculator...

Re: $600 Unemployment Benefit

Well, Trip's petulant response aside, it is a tough call. I think there needs to be more as there are certainly places that are not going to restart - plenty of restaurants that are closed now are never reopening. There probably should be some targeting of this - folks in the industries hardest hit...

Re: $600 Unemployment Benefit

The extra unemployment benefit will be extended, the Dems and Reps are haggling over how much - Dems want $600, Reps are offering $200 In Arizona, the base s $240/week. Adding $600 gives you $840/week or $21/hour. This is of course well above the state minimum wage of $12/hour. Potential Problems: ...
