  • FWIW.....

    the most important post in this thread. Hopefully it'll get its deserved play before long as others debate the salaries of those playing overseas. Meanwhile our team looks like it has a legit chance again now. But by all means, let's continue the European League talk.

    The tweets from April 29 are irrelevant now. I'm curious why you didn't post anything of his tweets back and forth between him and Barford about 4 on 4 and 5 on 5 games to hundred?

    Don't want to show that he is connected?

    Hmmmm...you're clearly trying to pick a fight.

    All I did was show more of his tweets.  As you can see from yesterday...even he said he doesn't know for sure.  People are acting like his tweet is official news.  I also said I hope he's right.

    I'm aware he is a radio personality as well as a friend to many current and former Hogs. 

    What's your issue?

  • Mason's texts are encouraging but meaningless. Looking forward to Macon's texts so we can put this to bed

    To me it appeared you only picked the tweets that only supported the point you were trying to make. Especially going back to April 29th to disprove his tweet from yesterday. Instead of presenting all sides.

    That I have a problem with.

    It appears as though its you attempting to pick a fight.  All he did was provide information.  Some of which a lot of us have not seen.  I'm appreciative of it over all the life-coach advice I've seen on this thread!

    I posted all the tweets I could find where Nick Mason commented on the subject of Macon/Barford leaving.   

    I don't know why anyone would not want Macon back.  I even said I hope Mason is correct in his tweet.  My point is that even Mason said yesterday he doesn't know what he will do...only that he thinks he knows what he will do.  So basically, we are still in the same boat we were before the tweet.

    Hopefully Macon ends our suspense soon.  We need both he and Barford back if we want to dance again.

  • Who said he's not attending classes? Another board "reported" he was. Who has the concrete proof? I'm guessing neither board does.

    Its been posted on here that he was not attending class.  I hope its wrong.
  • #566 by Porked Tongue on 07 May 2017
  • He was going to some classes. He's taking finals.

    I posted that already umpteen pages back.

    What Nick Mason tweet on April 29 and 30 is irrelevant, considering Nick is in atleast weekly contact with Barford and Macon

  • Nick Mason's tweets mean more to me than the "dumb", "uninformed", "he's making a mistake", posts I've seen on this thread.  At least he has a finger on the pulse, unlike all the life coaches on here!

  • Why did the Morning Rush bring Mason on as a regular?  Dude is TERRIBLE.
  • #575 by mizzouman on 08 May 2017
  • How the hell can he do that?  I guarantee I make twice what the highest euro guys make.  I'm 42 and still having to work full time for the next 20 years.  He must have played in the NBA some to make that kind of money.

    If you make twice as much as the highest euro guy, then first, congrats, then second, if you still have to work full time for the next 20 years, you're not doing something correctly.

  • Returning to the subject of Macon, I see in another thread that Qualls is playing in Israel. Do we think Macon is better than Qualls? What is his likely destination if he goes overseas (which we are told a couple of posts ago won't happen anyway)?
    I have no idea what Qualls makes, but I am sure him tearing his ACL and then getting arrested for marijuana probably hurt his stock in any league he was trying to get into. The ACL probably more than the other overseas, though.

  • But these players won't pay this.  The teams take very good care of them.  They won't pay rent, utilities, gas or for even a car.  All that is part of the deal. 


    You again, are assuming that everything is ideal and that all teams follow through.  That all too often, is not the case.  You are making a HUGE leap by grouping all players and all contracts into the same bucket.  A guy that has played in the NBA and a guy that was not drafted or even considered for the draft, will be treated completely differently.  No offense but guys like these are a dime a dozen.

    You have not read ALL my post on this subject have you?  I said that I'm assuming these players have done their due diligence.  If they know they can secure a favorable contract in Europe, then go.  If they cannot, then stay.

    Furthermore, in general, most posters think that Euro players are somehow living in poverty.  Maybe a small percentage are, but, again in general, they are well taken care of one way or another.

    Now, if these two players have not done their homework and they sign a bad euro contract, that's on them.  If the best they can do is a bad euro contract, they should come back.

    To be fair the "is macon coming back?" and "why didnt moses get invited to the combine" tweet was more of a joke to Nabors because that is what everyone asks.

    yes...I get that.

    Again, I just posted Mason's tweets regarding the topic of the 2 players possibly leaving early over the last ~2 weeks.

    I know what you did. However, that tweet was a joke with Nabors, so was completely irrelevant because it doesn't prove he does or doesn't know anything. Someone who does not understand could read that tweet you posted and not know it was a joke, so I was pointing it out.

    Who has time to read all of anyone's posts...  I would never assume an 18-23 year old has done their due diligence.  That is error #1. 

    I doubt you actually know how most European players are taken care of.  It takes several players to make a team and you might have read or read about a few players.  That leaves the majority that you nor I have ever heard a peep about.

    If you don't have the time to read what I say, then how can you judge what I wrote?

    That's like reading one sentence in a chapter and thinking you know that entire book.

    The bottom line is this:

    These two, like every other player contemplating this, need to do their due diligence.  If they can sign a good contract, go.  If they cannot, then stay. 

    If they don't do their research, that's on them.  Nothing you nor I can do about that.

    Lastly, everyone thinks Euro guys are taking advantage off and live a destitute life.  Maybe a small handful, but most do not.

    Macon needs to lobby NCAA for a 5th year of eligibility and stay 2 more years.  Statistics show people with a masters degree earn 20% more than people with a bachelor's degree.
