But, that is offset by the fact that he has to pay taxes in all the other states he plays in (and doesn't get credit against them for living in FL), so in the end, it might not be all that much of a benefit. Still a benefit, but not as dramatic as you'd think.


That's still 8 games a season getting 0%, a pretty big benefit over 8 games at 7.85%

It's hard to say without looking at their tax return. You might think that, but with all the deductions that are available, I wouldn't necessarily say it's "pretty big." You'd have to ask their accountant. Laughing

Agree.

7.85% < ($16M / $76M)

Of course, playing in states other than FL would require different calculations for 10/20 games each pre- and regular season. The salary differential on the right side of the inequality is slightly greater than 20%.

maybe it was the weather.....
or taxes......
or the team.....
or the stadium situation the next two years.....
or because all the cool kids live in FL

No idea. Little of it is in the Wilf's control.

Milliionaires that want the positives of living here, but live in FL for 6.1 months to save money, I'm not a fan.......

Maybe the Vikings contract proposal included 2 more years than Miami's proposal? Shocked

Well, although getting Wallace would have been nice, we are probably better off with Jennings: a more-rounded WR and will coach up the other WR's also.

Picked up a part time job for the summer because gym memberships and personal training sessions typically take a dip in the summer months.

4 AM shifts are becoming brutal. I just cannot get my body to go to sleep before 12 AM.

Worst I've had is a hairline fracture. Split my chin open enough times though.

A Quebec town was evacuated after a train carrying petroleum products derailed and exploded in the early hours of Saturday morning, setting a massive blaze that authorities said continued to burn as responders feared additional blasts. Several tanker cars exploded around 1 am local time on Saturday in Lac-Megantic in the Canadian province, a lakeside town of about 6,000 people near the border with the U.S. Police said the blast was powerful enough to set ablaze several buildings in the town center that includes a library, bars, apartments, and stores.

Over 1,000 people have been evacuated from the center of town and are being housed in a nearby primary school. It is unknown when these residents may be allowed back into the area.

Mayor Colette Roy-Laroche: "When you see the center of your town almost destroyed, you'll understand that we're asking ourselves how we are going to get through this event."

Thanks.

There's a whole slew of issues surrounding this disaster. Unfortunately all of them delve into the realm of politics, and as such they are out-of-bounds on this forum.

It's the summer of natural and man-made disasters in Canada, with the derailment in Montreal, and flooding in Calgary and Toronto.

Sad
