    I don't know whose fouls are better, but Ben's money won't count against cap. That would be the only thing to look at.

    It would be great if Joe would take Big Ben and Stackhouse.They still have some gas in their tank.Im not expecting from them great contribution on the court but it would help our young guys to develop.Big Ben would help defensively and Stack offensively.

    As much as I love and respect Ben, and would welcome him back with open arms.... his game wasn't something you can teach, you are either born with the heart and will that he played defense here with or your not.

    He wasn't skilled, and thats why alot of us said when we let him go that when his game started to dip it was going to fall fast and sadly we were right about it.

    If he's still able to atleast practice hard though, I'd bring him back to lead by example, for his work effort.... but I just can't see him being a teacher.

    I love for Big Ben to retire as a Piston by playing here for one or two more years as a bench player. We can get him for cheap now unlike many years ago when his demands were too much. Joe D if you're reading this please go out and get him.

    I would be all for spending the vet min on bringing these guys here to help with the youth.

    Their hearts are both in Detroit. If we don't take a salary cap hit, even better.

    Do it Joe!

    Yes,but it takes more then heart and will to be 4 time DPOTY.He has some skills wich he can teach to others.I really think that Big Ben could really improve CV defensive game and other players mind about defense.

    You know what bugs me? The inconsistency in the frosting levels on frosted mini-wheats. Sometimes they are fully glazed, but about 75% of the time, it is almost all wheat with just a little frosting left... like it has all fallen off in the deliver process.

    It reminds me of the old chicken nuggets at McDonald's before they went to all white meat. It always sucked getting a 6 piece nuggs and only getting 1 white piece.

    Nemo should be pretty easy to "find" if there are 8 in the pack.

    not one nemo :gaah:

    and believe you me I looked! My coworkers think I'm weird because I take my fruit snack characters out and enact little skits with them. Every skit ends in disaster though because they all get eaten. Makes it hard to produce an entire show though when I get jipped with only 4 like I did yesterday. Who's was supposed to play Elmer the farm hand, Crabtree the antiques dealer, Marcel the slightly limp wristed body gaurd or Bob the.....well I don't know what Bob does to be honest with you.

    No...no...you're not weird. Of course believed Al Sharpton when he said "there was nothing strange about your Daddy", so take it with a grain of salt.

    You ever think about doing some Shakespeare? I can see Hamlet's soliloquy being a perfect speech for Nemo, for example, just before he gets eaten.

    BTW I think your post is POTY.
