I have been a fan of Mershawn Lynch, for sometime now. The Strength he showed, the determination to give his best ALWAYS. I supported him when he did not want to be interviewed. YAY!
But he crossed that line when he decided to sit for OUR AMERICAN ANTHEM, THEN STOOD UP FOR THE MEXICAN ANTHEM. I have no problem with him standing for the Mexican Anthem, (HAD HE STOOD FOR HIS COUNTRY’S ANTHEM).
I say he should be paid in Pesos. I don’t even care how many Pesos they pay him as long it is relevant with the same ratio of the working class Mexican as it is with the working class American. Average household income for the USA in 2016 was $59,039 a year. (Wish I could make that. But I am doing my part by keeping that average down). The Mexican Average Household income was $12,800. I will let you figure out the difference. BUT, I am guessing the MEXICAN average to be about 21.6% of that of the average AMERICAN. Rounding to 20% would make 1 million equal $200,000. (Sorry I am not good at converting Pesos to Dollars so I am stating in US dollars). So he now makes $1,350,ooo.00 a year. In Pesos/Dollars he would, (again I am guessing), rounding down to 20%, He would be earning, $200,070. a year, (add that other 1.6%. won’t make a whole lot of difference.
NOTE: HOUSEHOLD REFERS NOT (necessarily), TO ONE WORKING PERSON BUT IN A HOUSEHOLD. It could be ONE if only one person has an income. But this is a primarily a two income society.
That is MY opinion!
For those of you who do not know how confidence ranking works, let me explain.
If we were playing an office pool,(which we ARE NOT). The object is to score the most points. To obtain the score YOU rank the teams by how confident you are a team will win its game. EXAMPLE: Say this week we have 16 games. The team you are most confident will win you would assign the number 16 and follow down to the team you are least confident in and assign that number 1. We use the Monday night game(last game) as a TIE BREAKER. The tie is broken by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating teams) final score, without going over.
If we were playing this is how my sheet would look; My pick will be in bold Capital letters. you can use circling, underlining, or highlighting. I will show my correct points in Bold
YOU can adopt the scoring described above. Or, the optional method. A negative score for missed games. We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions. EXAMPLE: if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pts on the second game and lost you would still have a Positive 1. HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a -14 score.
I will fill in my picks Thursday. Until then feel free to:
Just copy and paste for your own Fun Pool Use. Or to see if you can beat me.
IF YOU SEE I MADE A MIS-COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
