That's it. Enough is enough. I'm done with the NFL.

Sarcasm?

 

Or Skai Moore opting out is enough to have you opt out as a fan....

 

EDIT:   Green font equals sarcasm for you.  Got it!

Good business decision....depending on his circumstances, getting paid 150-350k this year beats getting cut and having to find something else.

 

Does a player opting out preclude that player from being cut? If so, I would expect a lot of players in the middle or back end of the roster to opt out.

It is a advance on his next year salary.  If he is cut next year he will still owe this amount.

I don’t think so and a player cannot opt after Thursday 

Players can opt out after Thursday in certain instances.

I have a feeling you're gonna see a LOT of fringe players do that. And its a smart move as well as a loop hole.

NOOOOOOOOOO!!! I was hoping we'd be the last team with no opt-outs! haha

 

On a positive note, Skai Moore probably wasn't making the team anyway. Especially with the addition of Jordan Glasgow. So we got pretty lucky if someone did opt-out! :thmup:

I would think it would be the reverse because if you opt out it requires the team to replace you and if your a fringe player once your replaced you generally don’t get your job back.

Also if it’s the $150K stipend it must be paid back. It’s just an advance on next year’s salary.

Yeah, but are you confident enough to bet on yourself after a year? Or do you just say nah, I don't wanna have the loan, that you might not get otherwise?

All true, but if one was smart, they'd take that 150-350 grand, drop it into a well based, but dividend paying stock, make 50-150 grand over the next few months, plus anything the stock gains, then sell it if you have to pay it back... keeping the gains and dividends of course.

Actually, besides the top 5 stocks or so, stocks are down and they are hugely manipulated to begin with. Gold, Silver, and Cryptos are what these guys should invest it in. They are the highest performing assets right now. If they would of bought silver a couple months ago when it was down to $11-$12 per ounce, they would of already more than double their money. Gold, Silver, and Cryptos with a diverse portfolio are what to invest in.

Also good ideas. My point is that if they’re smart with it, they could make more than enough to support themselves if cut next season after opting out this year, even if they have to pay it back.

And you want to buy stocks when they are off their highs, you know, buy low, sell high. 
 

but I’m not sure about your 401k, but I’m up 27.19% with mine on the year.

I think this ends his NFL career.   He was a backup or practice squad quality player who will now be taking a season off.  Be tough to sign with another team.

Do you need a job?  I work in investing and we could really use a guy like you. 

The pay is really good, if you can promise what you said.

I'm pretty sure there's some sarcasm there, but no, i don't.  I like my job.  Investing is a hobby for me.  But it can be done.

There where a lot of sarcasm  :)

I just thought it was fun, how easy you made it sound. If that was the case we would all be rich.

but as a hobby investor you know, he could just as well loose 10%+ within the next months
