    Dang, a lot of Raider hate in here. I've been a legit fan for a long time but I'll admit there are some fans who are embarrassing just like any team.

    Quick question for the lawyer friends in here. Our complex got a new landlord who came in to do a clean sweep from all the shady stuff the previous landlord was doing. He evicted a ton of people and we somehow got sucked into the mess. He changed our locks and we couldn't get in for a few days until everything was sorted out. He offered to do a pro rated rate for the next months rent. Should I be asking for more or take this to court? Was crazy frustrating since we didn't do anything wrong and had all our records/payments to prove it.

    We can take this to PM if anyone is willing to throw some advice my way.

    Sorry for being off topic!

    Promise to post some finds I had stashed in my trunk lol

    edit: not a lawyer, just my average-joe opinion.

    Pro-rating for the days you couldn't access your place is just compensation for a product/service you didn't get. If I were in your shoes, I'd argue I deserved more for the hassle and pain of having to deal with it. I'd probably start at a month free and negotiate from there. Would not go to court.

    I have to disagree with you. While the sizing can sometimes be really unusual, I have done really well with athletes items. I recently purchased a bunch of Brian Cushings Suits/Sport Coats and killed it. Hes just an over hyped LB.

    I made about 10x per item, about the same that I would make for a high end suit selling on my site. Out of the 10-15 items, I only have 2 left!

    Oh, I would love to have seen Currys suit:nodding:

    ^ do you find camelbaks at thrift stores? I love mine and fancy buying a bigger version for my commuting runs but never see that stuff. Not sure I'd like using a second hand drinking tube, wearing old shoes is enough for me!

    Yes, yes I do. I found all three of those yesterday, and have found about 6-8 in the past month.

    Mostly coming from me. I think I am still a little butt hurt over my Cowboys who have been a real let down this year! I'll start drinking something else other than the haterade. My bad..

    Hey man, Raiders have been in a long enough drought. This seasons success is very refreshing!
