OFF SEASON ALMOST OVER AUG 13 VS LIONS
Mr_Jet Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:20 PM) Yes I highly recommend anybody looking to get into House of Cards to take a weekend to binge watch at least the first 2 seasons.
azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:29 PM) I agree mr jet. The third was a little disappointing
azjetfan Icon : (10 June 2015 - 04:34 PM) Boss is what is what I am watching now. Not as good as house of cards but entertaining
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:53 PM) Eagles release absent Pro Bowl guard Mathis
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:54 PM) get it done big mac. instant upgrade at Guard for us
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) 33 years old.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) Im not against it but it would have to be a short term deal
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 June 2015 - 06:27 PM) THE A-ROD!!
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:19 PM) well done
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:19 PM) im going to play friday
blk_orion Icon : (Today, 08:57 AM) play what? golf?

Fuckin bullsh!t!! and right after my warranty expired!!! blowup.gif blowup.gif blowup.gif

http://editorials.te...ng-of-Death/p1/

Check this g@y ass sh!t out. The dreaded "red ring of death"!!. I went to log on this morning and my box is fvcked!! I new I should have took out the extended warranty!! now it's going to cost me 168.99 + shipping to get this damn thing repaired!! I'm SO PISSED OFF!!!! I have the absolute worst luck in the world and of course it has to happen right after my warranty expired!!

So I'm going to go with alternative measures here. I'm going to wal-mart to buy a new one (providing they don't write down the serial number) then I'm going to take it home and put the defective one in there and take it back and get a full refund. I paid 600 for this thing a year ago and I'm not going to basically shell out another 200 dollars to repair this piece of sh!t when I've only had it for one year. I've had my old xbox for 6-7 years and never had a problem. This is fuckin bullsh!t!!!

I hope they don't copy serial numbers because I'm scamming the fvck out of wal-mart straight up! if that doesn't work. I through it in the fvckin trash and wash my hands with this fuckin unit!

there are no costcos in canada? they've got the policy where they don't check anything. Google it to find out what walmarts return policy is on electronic purchases. If not, go to costco.com and have one delivered to you, and then ship it back and say it was defective.

Ahhhhh, the well-known but little used "Sears Switch," aptly named after the store notrious for turning their eye on store returns

The "Sears Switch" works basically anywhere as long as you keep the receipt. The only place I knew to have any problem with it was Target and thats after my buddy would buy PS2s and take one or two parts out of them and return them until he rebuilt a whole new one. He went to Target butthey only gave him store credit.

Like Amen said I'd go to Sam's or CostCo, any bulk operation, they tend to have more lenient store policies, although Wal-Mart is a pretty safe bet too. They won't copy down the serial number...I think they only did that like the first 3 months the 360s were out.

Good luck

If that doesn't work you should try to trade it in at blockbuster and you can get like 350 bucks for it then you will only have to pay like 50 bucks for a new one.

Yea they have costos here. I'll do the costco's thing as well if the Wal-mart plan falls through. My last resort is giving them a fake serial number over the phone and sending it in. Like the serial of my friends who's under warranty with wishful thinking they don't check it upon arrival and issue me a new one.

But one of these places have to go though either costcos or Wal-mart.

I'll keep you guys posted.

that sucks dude. i would go with the costco idea.

most of my buds in college buy tons of shit they need in costco (tvs, electronics..so forth) then when school is up they just return it for a full refund. works like a charm

Thats good sh!t to know. I have a Costco card I got from work. I haven't really shopped there much so I'm not so sure about what I can get away with. However I think I will be able to do my dirt at Wal-mart. If I see them copying the serial number of the 360 before purchase I'm outty and I'll do the Costco thing.

I have a question... If I was to purchase it from say Wal-mart, would they have a serial number of the actual unit on the receipt?

The only way I can get caught is if they open the box and check the serial number on the actual 360 device it's self. As long as they don't open it I'm home free.

i remem on the ps2 that the UPC code was right on the back of the console. so when the stores scanned the item it actually scanned the ps2 inside.

i guess the xbox360 is different cuz pulling the swap move on a ps2 was a bitch... u had to transfer the internals from one case to the other.

You have my deepest sympathies friend. I remember a long while ago, my Xbox went kaput! It was directly in the middle of a very fun game called Fable. So it was quite agonizing. Eventually I got it fixed. I hope you get yours fixed soon!

I hope so too! I work hard for my money and would hate to think of either pissing away 500 bones or spending another $150 to get it repaired. They should have been able to do this for me but they are leaches and suck money from consumers left and right so I'm not surprised.

Hopefully tomarrow I'll have a new 360. We'll see

yeah.. your post got me shook. I think I'ma cop the 2-year warranty for my 360, seeing as how the one I got is used. warranty is only $60. Add that to the total of how much I paid for the 360, and it's still cheaper than buying a refurb from Gamestop with the HDD. Last thing I want is to come home from a long day of work and get the worst red light special ever.

Hahahahaha fa sho!

Doggy if I was I'd get one ASAP... especially because it's used so it already got miles on it. I thought it would never happen to me but sure enough I became a victim of the dreaded red light of death. Do it ASAP and protect you're investment!
