  1. Investing in the stock market...

    You nailed it! I'm a sucker for those Bears. Actually, one of my favorites so far has been Shopify.
  2. Any of you guys investing during these crazy times? You do individual stocks, funds? I've just begun doing so myself, figuring I'd get in when many solid stocks are bottoming out. What individual stocks/companies are you guys looking at?
  3. Drew Brees

    It's just too easy.
  4. Drew Brees

    So true
  5. Investing in the stock market...

    With the minimal money I've put into investing, it happened to be at the perfect time. I've done very well.
  6. Investing in the stock market...

    Holy hell, Dave! Where have you been? And these bastids have to be good for something!
  7. Ryan Leaf arrested on domestic battery charge

    Posters like you didn't kill this forum. It could actually use more like you. This forum was filled with dicks and they moved on. Things haven't rebounded because the content is substandard and uninspiring and the website changes haven't been easy to navigate at times.
  8. Roger Goodell gives up salary

    Still his money.
  9. Roger Goodell gives up salary

    It really is! Dude gave up 4 million dollars! That's 1/10 of what he makes. I wouldn't want to give up 1/10 of what I make, even if, like him, I'd be fine compared to many others. It's my damn money! I should be punished, mocked or criticized because of the job I have, which still pays me my full salary where others are unemployed or are taking % cuts?
  10. Welcome to all those who have offered up their time and effort to participate in this NFL Mock Draft, along with those wanting to follow along!! This should be a lot of fun watching fellow Huddlers play GM for their Homer teams. I also wanted to add that if any Huddler would still like to be a part and have their opinion/voice heard when their Homer teams' pick comes up, feel free to PM me or the Huddler listed with the specific team below. Please keep all comments in this thread only as the actual selections will be in the other Draft thread. Thanks.

    Agreed and my comment of "those were the days", were in reference to the days here. I'm on other boards as well and they are thriving. I hate to say it but The Huddle is dead. I actually wasn't a paid member for the first time last year and the year before I was still on auto- pay, so I just considered that a donation and changed by settings.

    Agreed. The huddlers listed in here and 23 pages of posts for a mock draft... those were the days. It was a lot of fun, but we'll never see this again. Sad.
  13. Mock draft, anyone?

    Hey Dcat, all is well with my crew. Just getting done with Spring Break and back into the grind of home schooling and Remote Teaching. I know I used to run this mock years ago, just don't have the time and haven't really been paying much attention to mock drafts this year. Hope all is well with you and yours. Enjoy!
  14. Emmanuel Sanders To The Saints

    Agreed, very solid signing.
  15. So what new thing are you doing?

    Got into investing.
  16. Official QB domino thread

    Honestly, Rivers looked done last year. He truly looked really bad at times. I wish him nothing but the best but I'm leery.
  17. March Madness Bracket Contest

    Yup, tourney canceled. See you all next year.
  18. Back with the yearly pool that I run through CBS. If anyone is interested in getting in, shoot me an email and it's $10 per completed sheet (max 5 sheets per person allowed). 60 people were in last year and I paid out to the top 5. I'll be accepting payment through PayPal, venmo or snail mail.
  19. March Madness Bracket Contest

    I agree and won't be collecting any entry fees until we know everything for sure. If no selection Sunday happens, there's no tournament and no contest. That simple.
  20. March Madness Bracket Contest

    Ok, send me your email and I'll send you an invite.
  21. March Madness Bracket Contest

    That would have to be the case, sounds good. Irish10163@aol dot com.
  22. March Madness Bracket Contest

    Ok, cool. You got the invite?
  23. Search feature...

    Why am i not able to find threads from previous years like i have been able to in the past? Was searching for my thread on the playoff fantasy football contest i ran lat year and no dice. Also couldn't find my thread for the college bowl games pool.
  24. XFL

    See, that would be where they would go wrong, nobody would know what PI was in the XFL either then.
  25. Hello fellow Huddlers! As with last year, I figured I'd get an early start on this since I'm crazy busy at home with my village of children. So, here it goes... Just like previous years, I am running a league (Fantasy-aholics) where you can choose any player you want, any week you want throughout the playoffs (not 1 and done). No IDPs, PPR scoring, start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1 flex (RB, WR, TE), 1 K and 1 Def. This is a very simple league, score the most points from the Wild Card weekend through the Super Bowl and you win. Entry Fee $20. I'll be sending out invites to the 90 people who were in last year, 151 total people that have been in this over the years and obviously accepting new people this year. My Paypal will be given out in the invite. When you pay, please don't mention anything about fantasy football, gambling, etc. as my account could get locked. Just send to friend to avoid fees and include your Huddle name/Team name in the message. Thx ** The payouts will be based on the number of people joined up. (Payouts from last year) We had 90 people in the contest and I paid the top 5, and the person who had the highest one week score. I did a percentage breakdown of approximately: 50-25-10-7-5-3 and will probably do the same or something similar this year. The payout structure will be confirmed by Wild Card Weekend. With 93 confirmed, the total for payouts is $1,860!! 1st Place - $930 2nd Place - $465 3rd Place - $185 4th Place - $130 5th Place - $95 Single Week highest pts - $55 Thx, Scott (Irish) In Irish - PD Shaft - PD Dcat - PD RR26 - PD Junkyard (Dave S.) - PD Gopher - PD Jaime M (Liz B. - PD Anthony G (Avgargano) - PD De wanna wanga (Anthony G) - PD Longtime Lemmings - PD Greta - PD Sauced Leprechauns - PD Wales - PD borge007 - PD heehawks - PD hoodoo (Steve V.) - PD SafariSpency (Spencer E) - PD Finn5033 - PD Shortty - PD Tomer - PD Shaft - PD Theirish - PD KC REUNITED - PD KCChiefsFan - PD TRU SOLDA - PD Kevinkris - PD Jman - PD JoJothewebtoedboy - PD Trainwreck - PD Bcat01 (Doug N.) - PD Chris W - PD Dog Farts (Tony K) - PD Buddahj (In Kahoots) - PD Big Mike - PD Dragon1952 - PD Chargerette - PD Brauer - PD NAUGRAD - PD Bobby Brown - PD Nasty2020 (Chris G.) - PD One Man Wolf Pack and 'Merica - PD Blaw23 - PD Sundae Couch Potato - PD General Itals - PD MikesVikes - PD Wild Turkeys (Adam S) - PD Dramatic Chipmunks (Marvin) - PD Chris K. - PD Paul G - PD Monson33 (Mike M) - PD Respect the TECH (Doug) - PD Kam - PD Eagle2003 - PD Adrienne H - PD Wha What - PD asdemers - PD Roland B - PD CowboysDiehard - PD Bob N Weaver (Shea M) - PD Craig and Joey - PD Montana is da man - PD Amish Mafia (Blair P) - PD Rusty Colts (Ed D.) - PD Patrick S. - PD Mike Pags - PD Raidergil (Chris G) - PD The Hitter - PD Majinfu (Matt C) - PD Gallagorilla (Shane G) - PD Hezagenius (Sean K) - PD James Provinciali - PD Mary Lind - PD No Bell Prize (Dan G) - PD REZ - PD Electricrelish - PD Luca M. - PD Havoc - PD Rich Allen - PD Bonedaddies - PD
