    This represents the I-90 corridor between Rochester and Buffalo, which is basically Bartertown. 

    cc: @Pac

    Not sure if his chart is accurate but that is correct!  There are innumerable shanty towns between larger cities that are filled with the walking dead.  

    Hell where you went to college looks like the town in the Tom Cruise movie All the Right Moves.

    My brother moved to Tampa in 1990. His kids went to UF and FS. All 3 earn 6 figures and are not yet 35, highly educated and driven.   My experience in south has been similar.  

    Not implying no successful people..  hell of 6 friends I have in Tampa, Naples, and Orlando all but 2 make more money than I do..  1 is a multi millionaire.  I'm just saying for me I have less than zero interest in living in that state.

    I have however told the wifey that if I were to ever move south it would be in your state.  Both of us will probably always stay in ny though.  Not NYC, I have zero interest in living there either, in upstate ny.

    Or…that’s how all the high rookie contracts are structured every year since the slotted contracts started. They’re mostly signing bonus. Doesn’t matter what state, what the stock market’s doing, etc.

    Plus the agent gets paid right away up front as well, and that’s really who’s negotiating the deal. No danger of the player renegotiating under a new agent, before the first deal is up, and then he doesn’t get paid for all of the rookie deal. 

    I thought they decided whether to front load or spread out.

    Can it be worse than NYC????  Don’t get me started.  NY is no haven of the over educated.  

    I often have this conversation with my buddies and family who have migrated to FL.  You could give me a free decent house in FL and I would not move there.  I could give you 50 reasons but that's another thread.

    It is on their signing bonuses. So just on this signing bonus check alone, it’s already millions.

    If Sauce just got a $25MM signing bonus (or however much it was), it seems he’d owe NJ ~9% on his income between $500K and $5MM ($400K) plus 10.75% on the last $20MM ($2.15MM) = just over $2.5MM total. If he was taken 3rd instead of 4th - and if he’d gotten the same contract - he’d get to keep that $2.5MM instead. 

    Then on top of that there’s no more fully deducting his SALT so he also has to pay federal income taxes on that $2.5MM he paid to the state. 

    @southparkcpa I’m guessing here, but do I have this right? Work through your wine buzz; this is important stuff here.

    Tldr brah

    You pay based on where the game is, not where you live

    This is correct.  Not going to say how but I've seen check stubs and tax break downs for nfl players and each game is taxed based on where its played.

    While its true if you're in NY you'll pay more taxes than a player in FL the discrepancy isn't as great as most believe it is.
