2018 UFA Thread


Recommended Posts

Yet people still play in other States, why is that?

I refuse to listen to people bitch about this. The tax situation has been this way since time immemorial. It’s nothing new at all. Get over it and move on.

I'm so fvcking livid about this FA period. LeBron signed in LA? Really? Wtf, is Ray doing anything? If I find out Ray didn't even call his agent to inquire about coming to NJ I'm going to be pissed. 

I like to tell people I’m an architect, Art Vandeley.

Others have already hit on this note, but no. Hallsy is younger, healthier, and is coming off his 1st career Hart trophy, certainly wouldn't trade him for Karlsson. The list of players I'd trade Hall

It's only news on this board for the first time this year because 1) Tampa is building a potentially dynasty level team, and 2) they eliminated us in the playoffs.

It’s like people just woke up and realized Florida has no state income tax.... yeah, it’s only been that way since, ya know, forever.

Alright boys, have fun discussing this thrilling offseason amongst yourselves. 

I'll be back when there's actual news to discuss, don't let me interrupt your circlejerk here. ;)

Can two people have a circle jerk? I would think that takes more people. Two people would basically just be jerking in a straight line between two points. 

We should do it in Florida so we get more superstar jerkers to join us.

Good signing by them...locked up long term, and at a pretty reasonable price, considering what he's done the last couple years. 

Also, my oldest step-son works at that restaurant :)   

I sent the picture to my son, and he told me served him last night :lol:  Didn't know who he was, I probably wouldn't either.  Said his girlfriend was really hot, and there were some others as well.  None of the girls spoke any English.

I hope NK didn't tip him less because he knew he wouldn't have to pay State taxes.

Harsh but funny is kind of my thing. But only kind of funny.

In all fairness, you kind of have to do that to let people know you're done with the conversation.  It's not like when you're face to face with someone and you can just walk away without saying anything, because they say you walk away.  If he didn't say that, it doesn't give the same effect, and we just assume he either read the message and conceded, or perhaps didn't read it and is just busy doing other things.

Of course, by continuing to post about it, did you really leave the conversation??

On the contrary, maybe he tipped more!

By your logic, he could have tipped him less and STILL tipped him more!!

That is NOT my logic, but, technically, it is logical.

Well on the day he signed a $76 million contract, I think we can all agree, he better not have been cheap lol.

No doubt. I asked him what he tipped but he wasn't sure.  He said he seemed nice, but they were seated at a secluded table that is basically private seating where you are waited on without any words exchanged - they basically serve you without interrupting.  He said it was pretty clear they were talking business, but obviously couldn't understand them.  I asked if there was any champagne, apparently they had rose and another bottle of something obscure.

Maybe the tax situation wasn't on the players radar like it is now?

Plus back in the day players didn't have to pay a chunk of their paycheck to put into Escrow as per the CBA.  After the 2012 lockout, the amount they get back from escrow has gotten even smaller so yeah players are now focusing more and more of where they can scrape as much $ as they can including looking closer at state income tax advantages/disadvantages.

The fact that they can't deduct the vast majority of their state and local taxes from their federal taxes might have brought it into the forefront also.

I haven't seen anything to suggest that the players have it on their radar more now than before. But the issue I am talking about isn't players complaining about it, its fans complaining that its "unfair". Whether it is or isn't, it has always been there.

1000% agree. Even as we speak Kucherov is trying to figure out how he is going to shelter as much of that $9.5m annually as he can.

I am NOT a tax attorney. How much of the State and Local gets written off?
