Azjetfan is the nyjetsfan #1 pick
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:25 AM) I thought Collins said we'll withdraw if not picked by day 2
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:25 AM) But yeah hard to deny the value in getting Petty round 4
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:26 AM) i did not expect him or hundley to still be there past round 3 on thursday
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:26 AM) so picking him up is great
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 AM) I want to be the first person to say it. "Broadway Bryce"
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 AM) imagine being a jaguars super fan haha
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:37 AM) Damn Vikes got Clemmings, in round 4 he's worth it
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 12:28 PM) Can we get a post with the selections
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 12:40 PM) It's tough to do with iPad but I'll get one started
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:01 PM) Jay Ajayi ?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:02 PM) Maybe a Tyrus Thompson?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:22 PM) Phi a took Ajaji
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 01:33 PM) Some depth on the line with the Harrison pick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:43 PM) I read the scouting report for Harrison, the scout said he has probowl talent but has a work ethic concern.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:10 PM) Who the hell is Bryce petty
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 03:20 PM) Tom Pettys brother
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:22 PM) Jets should take Collins with one of their 7th rounders if there
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:22 PM) He has more upside for a 7th rounder than anyone else
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:22 PM) He can start right away at RT
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:29 PM) He said he won't sign
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:32 PM) so he doesn't want to be drafted?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:33 PM) If Collins doesn't get drafted, he can't enter next years draft. He can only if he is drafted and sits out. So I guess he has to go undrafted
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:41 PM) going undrafted makes the most sense for collins
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:41 PM) but for teams, drafting him and dealing with his holdout makes more sense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:19 PM) Zac Stacy was traded to us for our 7th
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:21 PM) Jets also drafted a NT with our other 7th
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:21 PM) 6'4 330 DL who is very strong
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:25 PM) zac stacy for a 7th
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:25 PM) well can't complain about that
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:29 PM) So we have 4 rbs now
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:31 PM) still would have rather taken a runner on collins but i can't complain with depth
V DidDy 210 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:32 PM) i mean they can't expect to carry 4 rb though no?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:50 PM) Collins would have been a waste. He would not have signed. At least we have something to show for our pick. Worst case scenario is we trade or release one of our backs.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 PM) I know it's hard to tell without seeing a win loss record yet but this regime seems really on point.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 PM) For the first time in my life I can say I feel comfortable with the people making the decisions.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:57 PM) I was close with Parcells but he seemed like a short term fixer and didn't care about the long term
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 PM) SUCK FOR THE DUCK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 PM) .......oh wait
santana Icon : (Today, 01:13 AM) Well that was a disappointment
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Today, 01:24 AM) I like getting Stacy for our 7th rounder, assuming he can handle the fact he won't be a feature back (yikes)
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:31 AM) I like the trade, hes a quality back and adds more depth to our backfield
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:32 AM) Macc has pretty much killed it this offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:32 AM) He has turned this roster around, he has added talent and competition all over.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:33 AM) We still aren't great at QB, but our overall football team is good. We have a realistic shot at making a playoff run
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:33 AM) We may have the best defense in football. We have a great DL and secondary, that is gonna be tough on offenses when you can stop the run, pressure the QB, and blanket the receivers

The wages of fraud have been calculated, and the figure is a whopper: The government overpaid $3.3 billion in unemployment insurance benefits in 2011 because of bogus claims.





Most of that fraud -- $2.2 billion of it -- was linked to people who concealed that they continued to work, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.




The findings raise questions about the program's efficacy, at a time when many workers continue to struggle in a still-recovering job market. Although the fraud represents a small percentage of the total $108 billion in unemployment benefits paid out in 2011, it nevertheless undermines the program's goals and perhaps takes away from those who are qualified for the payments.




About $500 million of fraudulently claimed money went to workers earning at least $900 per week, or $46,800 per year, the St. Louis Fed noted. Fraudulent claims for those earning less than $300 per week cost the program a far smaller amount, about $210 million.




The reason for the disparity is simply that high earners receive bigger unemployment checks, because workers receive benefits that represent a portion of their earnings, the study said.




Despite that, more low-earners committed fraud, according to the bank. Almost half of the concealed-earnings fraud (unemployment claims from people still receiving wages) was committed among people earning $300 to $600 per week. That's annual income of $15,600 to $31,200.




With the recession and a tough job market, unemployment fraud has come under scrutiny, although the St. Louis Fed didn't note whether the cheating is on the rise or has diminished. But The Wall Street Journal notes that the cost of the fraud likely declined in 2012, given that total spending on jobless benefits fell to $84 billion last year.




Several high-profile cases of alleged fraud have recently come to light. In January, federal prosecutors alleged a fictitious employer scheme defrauded the government of $5 million, with fake employers laying off fictitious employees, who then filed for benefits.




And the Illinois Department of Employment Security last Monday said it was cracking down on unemployment fraud. It alleges that five Chicago-area residents claimed unemployment benefits, even though they were still working, costing the program $159,000.




The program has also come under fire for providing benefits to millionaires, with the government spending $29.9 million in jobless payments to million-dollar earners in 2010, as I wrote earlier this month for MSN moneyNOW. That represented a 44% jump from the previous year. With Wall Street companies such as JPMorgan Chase (JPM +0.02%) cutting thousands of jobs during the past few years, it raises the possibility that some of those million-dollar earners are bankers or brokers.




While several bills have been introduced that would limit jobless benefits for workers with high incomes, the proposals haven't gone anywhere.

actually most of the people who commit welfare fraud are guess what...employed. People who are working full time or working two jobs and don't report it to DHS are the ones that are committing most of the fraud, and hell welfare cheats are still a small percentage of the overall total of people on gov't assistance. I see people with jobs cheat the system a lot more than I see unemployed people cheating the system.

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.

Oh I get it now. But I fear that might give people like Michele Bachmann and Louie Gohmert ideas. I could see them going around with a machete trying to cut off the "benefits" of people on public assistance.
