Re: Cheetah switches to America's NFL

they even have this designated 'foreign development player' thing, which allows them to carry an extra player on top of the salary cap I didn't know that bit. :thumbup: I'm pretty sure that doesn't include kickers though.

One thing I was too kewl to appreciate back in the day, but have gotten into recently, is deathcore.

Job for a Cowboy's Doom EP has some nasty jams. Entombment of a Machine and Knee Deep are top notch stuff, and really not too far off from proper death metal anyway (for the purists among us)
