I was reading a piece over at Foxnews:
http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2013/01/30/federal-state-tax-hikes-could-send-athletes-migrating-to-tax-friendlier-states/

And saw this. It made me wonder if stuff like this will Help Cleveland in the Free Agent market as the Ohio state income tax is fairly low compared to other states. It is just 5.925 percent as opposed to the 13 percent in California for example. If the Browns were to go after any NFL player who plays in California for example the Browns have more cap space and also can boost that you can keep a LOT more of your check in Cleveland.

Thoughts?

Nevada

d'oh!

...I think it's definitely a selling point (remember when LeQuit went to Miami, part of the appeal was no income taxes), but I don't think you'll see a huge migration in talent.

Smiley faces and winking emoticons don't allow you to talk about politics, even in a subtle way.

Please talk about the topic.
