Or that at least one is returned for 6.

Sure, including practice squad and not counting any sort of injury.

weekly game checks or the signing bonus he gets that covers his pay for training camp?

As I mentioned earlier, game checks or practice squad checks. Also signing bonus if drafted (though I'd assume if he's drafted he'd make either a roster or practice squad). No bet in the event of injury.

Don't have to be drafted to get a signing bonus... guys who sign contracts for training camp get signing bonuses or else why would they come to training camp? Players don't draw a paycheck until week 1 of the regular season.. so these guys who sign contracts and don't make the team need some compensation for their 4 to 5 weeks of work.. and that's the minuscule signing bonuses (think 10 grandish) that come with the contracts for the minimum salary they'd earn should the get a spot on the team.

Yeah, I'm well aware of that (most if not all guys go to training camp/mini camp for the shot to make a roster, btw, not for the piddly signing bonus) which is why I specified a signing bonus if drafted because that would be more significant than what you're referring to...if you want to give me those signing bonuses on my side of the bet as well, I'll take it but that seems unfair.

I know a lot of people who would not think of $10K as "minuscule" for 4 to 5 weeks of work with a chance to earn bigger things.

Lee had a rough third quarter. He got in late. On his first play, he was blindsided, knocked down for a sack and lost the ball. South team's Marcus Davenport, a former UTSA defensive end, scooped up the fumble and returned it 23 yards for a touchdown. On his next play on the next series, he tossed an interception.

it wasn't just the game where Lee hurt his draft position.. apparently in drills this week, he was dubbed "the turnover machine" according to a Cornhusker message board... one poster said he had 18 reps in 7 on 7 drills and threw three INTS

from The Draft Wire

Lee is listed as a "loser"

"Lee spent most of his week inviting negative comments about his accuracy issues in practice, and his game-day performance wasn’t much better. The redshirt junior completed just eight of his 19 pass attempts, throwing an interception that wasn’t his first of the week. While Lee has some intriguing physical tools, he didn’t do his already-low draft stock any favors in Mobile."

Nuke LaLoosh needs an Annie Savoy.

The Kevin Costner movie Bull Durham about minor league baseball players. “Nuke” LaLoosh was the pitching prospect “with a million dollar arm and a 10 cent head” who was taken under the wing of veteran catcher Crash Davis. As importantly, Nuke is scooped up by cougar Annie Savoy who makes it her duty each season to school a young protege in the ways of the world and hopefully send him on his way to The Show.

Every time Tanner Lee throws a Pick 6, I think of Nuke LaLoosh throwing a 98 MPH fastball over the backstop.

I must commend you; educating your colleagues is a very admirable trait, and the more we can do that using references and analogies in sports-related (and other) movies, the better. Once again, we have proven that we are a cut above so many other fan sites, where the majority of the posts are monosyllabic, and any use of creativity is frowned upon (or at least not the norm). Keep up the great work! :-D
