Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 October 2014 - 08:12 AM) Jets are cutting David Nelson
jetfan4life12 Icon : (18 October 2014 - 09:15 AM) the probably could have had Santana Moss cheap. He has been healthy all season but inactive every week
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (18 October 2014 - 11:06 AM) I'd prefer to keep him and cut Salas
santana Icon : (18 October 2014 - 11:36 AM) you would of thought david nelson would of been more of a redzone threat by this point. hes a big dude.
santana Icon : (18 October 2014 - 11:39 AM) real madrid shooting practice continues
santana Icon : (18 October 2014 - 12:02 PM) arent there some other names that could have been cut instead
santana Icon : (18 October 2014 - 12:03 PM) chris owusu
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 October 2014 - 01:21 PM) Salas is better than Nelson
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 October 2014 - 01:22 PM) Nelson is rated as the worst wr in football this season
santana Icon : (18 October 2014 - 01:34 PM) he has to better than owusu or graham
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (18 October 2014 - 04:36 PM) I posted an article about harvin and some of his issues. Dude seems like a wack job with talent. Hope rex can corral this guy or he could make the locker room implode
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:43 AM) Wasn't demean Jackson vilified as a gang affiliated street thug during his Philly release
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 12:31 PM) damn football sunday and no ones on
Canuck Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 01:00 PM) Yeah, cuz Rex is so good at developing offensive talent; 0 - Infinity
Canuck Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 01:02 PM) Harvin is Holmes 2.0, except punches for general bitchiness and annoying first down celebrations.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:03 PM) i'm not buying into the media nonsense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:06 PM) Harvin is a playmaker, we needed one.
Canuck Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 01:15 PM) I hope he tears it up as a Jet, but he's been tossed from 2 teams in as many years and hasn't cracked 1000 yds in his career. I wouldn't be surprised if he had CTE from those brutal head hits, hence the aggression of late.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:18 PM) I was tossed from two t-ball teams and some people still say i was the best hitter on timid deer lane
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:20 PM) bills RBs dropping like flies

ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:43 PM) Manning just broke the Passing TD record
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:44 PM) :boredom: we could of had him a few years ago
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:44 PM) but at least he didn't break it on us
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:45 PM) I don't think he wanted to be here
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:46 PM) I don't really care for passing records being broken. Qbs now have a lot of rules in their favor
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:46 PM) I mean even the catch that got them into the redzone was a PI call that wouldnt of been called when favre played

The 28-year-old wide receiver from Belle Glade barely entered the first year of a five-year deal with the New York Jets — and already, a local woman had her paternity suit against Holmes re-opened, according to county court records.
Click here to read the filing
Nicole King
, 26, says she should get more money because Holmes is becoming much richer!
True dat! The MVP of Super Bowl XLIII, who was with the Pittsburgh Steelers at the time, signed with the Gang Green for $50 million. So, King cited a “substantial change of circumstances” as the reason she filed.
The Glades Central Community High School alumni and King signed an agreement in 2008 that paid King $4,000-a-month.
Their son, Santonio III, is nine.
Adam Swickle
, Holmes’ Fort Lauderdale-based attorney, declined comment. King’s lawyer didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Because $4,000 a month for getting knocked up isn't enough?

This is ridiculous. Women have it made. AFTER child support has been set, and the male is making his payments on time, then get's a raise and plans to bank the little extra income, said women wants that raise now. Where does it stop? You know that these players are also spending a lot of non mandatory monies on these children as well, ok, at least I hope they are.

We all know that the money isn't being spent on the child as it is intended for. Most of it is on materialistic wants of the babies mama. If you can't make $4k work per month, then there is a problem with the mom. The courts need to see that, but they don't.

I am going through this as well, granted not on the large scale as these ball players but still. It is shocking to me how the courts just keep pampering these women. No wonder none of them ever want to work.

I am an hourly worker, and the courts take overtime into consideration as well in my case. They average it out every 6 months. For every raise I have received since my daughter was born(12yrs), I have not seen it. The mother automatically gets her support payments raised every time I get one. I just denied, yes, denied a raise back in January just because of this fact.

I feel for these players. SMGDH............... :ranting3:

I see both sides of this issue. Not all women who get child support are gold diggers and not all men who pay child support are dead beats. This is one of those issues where a few bad apples have ruined the bunch. Punishing the actual dead beats can end up hurting the honest hard working guys.

I've thought for years they should run the child support system like they do WIC. Instead of a father's income going directly onto a debit card for the mother to spend as she sees fit. There should be a list of items that the child support debit card would pay for. For example things like baby bottles, diapers, bibs, cribs, strollers, etc. Things only the baby could use. Products from companies like Johnson & Johnson and Gerbur would be on the list since they primarily make products that only a child could use. For older children the money from the card would be used to buy things the child would use daily in the household and for school. Shampoo, soap (body, dish, laundry), toothpaste, school supplies, etc. Along with buying clothing for the child may want or need. So products from companies like Nike for example could be on the list of approved items that can be bought with child support money. The only problem I could see from that is children would know what items were on that list and those items would be known as "child support clothes" or "child support outfits" and the children receiving child support could be subject to teasing and bullying from their peers. But a system like this would be a way of making sure the money the father was paying was primarily going to take care of the needs of the child.

But since there are more women than men that also means there are more women voters then men voters, so something like this will never happen.

3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.

you know what...I wouldnt mind the $$$ as much if she had to show an ITEMIZED work sheet of EVERY PENNY spent on care & custody of the child. I have been on both ends of the spectrum of support.

X 1= 1 child=$100 per week
X 2=2 children =$70 per week

X1 got 0 cents over what was ORDERED cause she was a money hungry BITCH
X2 got ANYTHING my sons needed cause she ALWAYS used it for my sons & never griped even though X2 KNEW X1 was getting more for 1 (& STILL bitching) than she was for 2.

Still, shyt is OUTTA control the way these hood rats are. Have a child & dont need a job...of course the man will have to pay. Not like we can MAKE em abort or keep a child no matter what WE as the other 1/2 of the baby creation party want.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Sounds sensible, though it would doubtless prove controversial if that money could only be used to buy products made by certain companies.

Going off topic a bit, WIC sounds as though it is a voucher based benefit. Are most state benefit programmes like that in the US, or do recipients have the freedom to spend the money they receive on what they want?

Like Soke said it's a voucher system for poor pregnant women and women with young children to get food and other things to promote better health for poor women and their children. There is a list of items that WIC will pay for and only from that list. They're only allowed to buy certain types of food at certain times. There is a limit to the amounts of certain foods they can buy with WIC each month. For example like they could only get four 13 ounce boxes of Corn Flakes. They couldn't get the 10 oz box or the 15 oz box, they have to get the 13 oz box. But that's basically what it is. The only gov't benefit that Americans (the poor ones that is) can get and spend any way they want is unemployment insurance and social security.

nah that's all bullshit. There needs to be a ceiling. Either that, or a court assigned CC with a bill that goes to the father. The bill is itemized as it is, so if there's a $400 purchase at Victoria Secrets, he can dispute that.

Maybe you're right. It would make more sense for a father to go after his money AFTER it's been spent inappropriately rather than prevent it from being spent inappropriately to begin with. That father would get his $400 back in no time because we all know how quick and efficient our judicial system is.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Like Soke said it's a voucher system for poor pregnant women and women with young children to get food and other things to promote better health for poor women and their children. There is a list of items that WIC will pay for and only from that list. They're only allowed to buy certain types of food at certain times. There is a limit to the amounts of certain foods they can buy with WIC each month. For example like they could only get four 13 ounce boxes of Corn Flakes. They couldn't get the 10 oz box or the 15 oz box, they have to get the 13 oz box. But that's basically what it is. The only gov't benefit that Americans (the poor ones that is) can get and spend any way they want is unemployment insurance and social security.


Seems pretty draconian that they even prescribe what size boxes of foodstuffs they can buy with it. But it seems as though there are good intentions behind the programme if it is looking to promote better health as generally the cheapest food available is the unhealthiest, processed food. Some more freedom for its recipients sounds as though it would be beneficial. I can't think of any equivalent for such a programme in Britain. And with the economic downturn there are growing stories of families going without meals one night a week to get by and schools cutting down the size of school dinners, which is ridiculous.
