    That's ridiculous.

    Not true. Do you get frivolous law suits filed against you on a monthly bases? I personally know one of our RCAF board members and top 2 or 3 donors who fights just that every day of his life. Blows lots of unnecessary money just to defend against these sleazy attorneys. I know he would be know where near Gordon in a room.

    Look at the names of our facilities Moncla, Moosing(Franks)and Russo(Stabil Drill). All these people in the oil industry and I bet defended themselves in numerous frivolous law suits over the years.

    ......Where does it start? Insurance costs go up but they are regulated....ergo the costs are within the scope of the industry making a fair profit.....so the oilers have to increase their costs to cover this expense.....the insurance companies pay the bills the suits present....Louisiana is maybe the worst state around for lawsuits.....the cycle continues!!!

    Is there a quick list of verbal commitments and who else offered them?

    Does Gordon focus on maritime lawsuits and oil based personal injury or just Personal Injury in general? I doubt his focus is just on Oilfield P.I.

    From seeing his billboards in BR and along the I10 and 90 corridors he focuses on all things that make our economy go, such as big trucks, offshore, and maritime. I am sure he'd love to get his hands on a few doctors given the opportunity.

    So you hate the guy because he chose a profession that makes a ton of money and he's good at it.

    Makes sense to me.

    No I hate the guy because he is in the most sleaziest profession in the USA. Theses people go down to the dock where they have crew changes and leave business cards on the table. They bring food in as if it were a sales call and try to solicit injuries. They find out when a guy goes to a Dr to get something is checked out, and if nothing is found they send him to "his dr."

    Lawyers do nothing for an economy they are just leaches wanting to suck out of every aspect of what makes an economy go. Just watch the commercials they are after the trucks that transport good, the people who produce oil and gas, the doctors.....

    Tort reform would fix a lot of problems in Louisiana and the country!

    Tort reform would drop rates in a second.....if texting while driving would stop it would also take a significant drop to costs! And lest I forget road makeup and dwi problems would knock a chunk off of insurance rates!!!

    The Oilfield brass have much bigger fish to fry who are killing the industry a lot more than Gordon McKernan. That would be the Governor with the legacy lawsuits. I don't think anybody around here would have a problem. He might get teased with all the goofy billboards his dad has around but I don't think him being a P.I. attorney would affect his son.

    It's actually quite insulting as a fan of this program that another so called fan would disparage a parent of a potential student athlete. It's disgusting to me.

    I think it's a non issue. The kid ain't coming here. He was offered a walk on spot. I saw him play last November he'll get a scholarship offer somewhere. Especially if he is willing to go in state, to what I still call 1AA.

    It's not about needing the scholarship for this player. It's about competing at the highest level you can. I'd think he'd love the chance to compete in FBS games instead of FCS. He can always drop back later if he's not reaching his goals.
