Ok... This is where I'll post about the additions/subtractions made.  I'm a Browns fan - so this is one of the few times during a calendar year that I can cheer about our undefeated season.

If Welker signs elsewhere I might start physically weeping. :~(

Maybe we can get a picture of you and Brady in the same pose.

So far, they're doing a good job. Too bad about Akers, but can't be a high paid kicker if you can't get it through the uprights.

It is really too bad we stand to lose Goldson. There are rumors we plan to replace him with Ed Reed, but that is not a good swap.

I'm just hoping the G-men do not lose Cruz - a year of him and a healthy Nicks could be scary.

Browns signed Kruger to a 5yr $40m contract.  Well, well... I hope this dude is more than a role player for that kind of cheddar?

Giants bring back Aaron Ross, lose Bennett to the Bears. Now we need a TE.

The 9ers and KC have made the trade official. Alex Smith for a 2nd round pick. I think that was probably about the best they could do for him. Both parties come out happy with this. Smith can try to win the job in KC and the 49ers get the 34th overall pick.

My friends in Missouri are excited about getting Chase Daniels. If Alex doesn't look good pretty quickly there will be pressure to give Chase a shot.

Ok, the Browns picked up another defensive lineman.... Wow.  $74M for two free agents. We still need a go to possession WR (IMO), CB and a G.

The Cleveland Browns made another impact move to improve their pass rush Tuesday, agreeing to a five-year, $34 million contract with defensive tackle Desmond Bryant, NFL.com's Albert Breer reported . Bryant is guaranteed $15 million in the deal, which came hours after the Browns locked up former Baltimore Ravens defensive end Paul Kruger with a five-year, $40 million agreement.

The Browns signed another defensive player in Quentin Groves (OLB, 6-3, 265lb).... This one on the cheap... 2yrs, totaling $2.8m.

It looks like they are really trying to sure up the defense with vets via free agency, and will draft a CB/WR/TE in April??

Reggie Bush in Honolulu Blue for the next 4 yrs.  Whoo hoo, first back since Sanders to have a 1,000 yd season back to back.  A solid running game might let Detroit become more balanced.

Infinitely worse. Then again, I've read that the Pats are among the finalists for Amendola, a more-than-suitable replacement (don't think for a second that I'm not already drunk off the Amendola Kool-Aid).

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
