    Contract Figures
    by RebelYell
    I was wondering, what's a pro-bowl DT make? So I went to the 2010 starting lineup for the pro-bowl and then looked at their contracts:

    Haloti Ngata $3 million per year
    Vince Wilfork $8 million per year (high end current estimate of new contract extension)
    Kevin Williams $6 million
    Darnell Dockett $4.5 million

    How about backups?

    Casey Hampton - $7 million (just signed extension)
    Jay Ratliff - $4 million
    Justin Smith (they have him as a DT for the pro-bowl) $8 million

    Pro-bowlers aren't always the best, they are usually seasoned veterans at the top of the game and several of these guys just got extensions.

    If the Rams draft Suh, he'll be paid higher than any of the 2010 pro-bowlers at his position.

    Weekend top box office for movies
    by Bruce=GOAT
    As a huge movie fan, I always follow box office trends. For those interested, here is the top 10 for the weekend:

    Ghost Rider retains top box office spot

    Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES The comic-book adaptation Ghost Rider burned the competition at the weekend box office, fending off a rush of new movies to rake in $19.7 million in its second week, according to studio estimates Sunday.

    The Sony film starring Nicolas Cage as a motorcycle stuntman turned Satanic bounty hunter continued its momentum after debuting last week with $52 million over the four-day President's Day weekend, the biggest opening ever for that holiday.

    "It set the bar so high last weekend that for any newcomers, it was going to be real tough film to beat," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracker Media By Numbers.

    Premiering at No. 2 with $15.1 million was the New Line Cinema psychological thriller The Number 23, starring Jim Carrey as a man obsessed with the mysterious power of that digit.

    The other new movies included the 20th Century Fox police spoof Reno 911!: Miami, which opened at No. 4 with $10.4 million and The Astronaut Farmer, which debuted at No. 9 with $4.5 million. The Warner Bros. film stars Billy Bob Thornton as an ex-NASA astronaut who struggles to build his own rocket.

    Disney's Bridge to Terabithia, based on the children's fantasy novel, slipped to third place with $13.6 million, lifting its total to $46.2 million. Dreamworks' Eddie Murphy comedy Norbit rounded out the top five with $9.7 million.

    Despite bad reviews, Ghost Rider lifted Hollywood out of its box-office slump, with revenues up for the second straight week this year. The top-12 movies grossed $101.8 million, up 1.5 percent from the same weekend last year. However, movie attendance to date this year is down 2.2 percent.

    Ghost Rider is based on the Marvel Comic books about motorcycle stunt driver Johnny Blaze, played by Cage, who sells his soul to the devil and gains fiery superpowers.

    "It's an accessible movie to everyone," said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony. "Not only does it have action and special effects, it also has a tremendous sense of humor to it."

    Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Media By Numbers LLC. Final figures will be released Monday.

    1. Ghost Rider, $19.7 million.

    2. The Number 23, $15.1 million.

    3. Bridge to Terabithia, $13.6 million.

    4. Reno 911!: Miami $10.4 million.

    5. Norbit, $9.7 million.

    6. Music & Lyrics, $8 million.

    7. Breach, $6.2 million

    8. Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls, $5.3 million.

    9. The Astronaut Farmer,...

    Virginia Tech offers Beamer raise to more than $2 million
    by DJRamFan

    CBS wire reports

    BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Virginia Tech has offered football coach Frank Beamer a new contract that would boost his average annual compensation from $1.3 million to more than $2 million for the next seven years.


    "The university and myself believes that coach Beamer is the one who built this program, and we absolutely want coach Beamer to be here for the very rest of his career," athletic director Jim Weaver said Monday night on the weekly Hokie Hotline radio show.

    He said he hoped the deal could be completed before Virginia Tech's Sept. 4 opener at North Carolina State. The holdup is Beamer's refusal to agree to any new contract that doesn't include raises for each of his nine full-time assistant coaches.

    "That's all I'm looking for," Beamer said Saturday. "I don't need all the other stuff."

    Weaver said Beamer and his agent, Jimmy Sexton of Memphis, Tenn., asked him and other university officials to examine assistant coaches' salaries at other top programs and pay Beamer's aides accordingly. He said that analysis is in progress.

    "I'm not sure when we'll get to the end of the line, but we're committed to getting there," Weaver said.

    Beamer, 58, who is starting his 19th season as Tech's coach, signed his current contract in 2000. At the time, Beamer's salary and the combined $1.1 million being paid to his assistants ranked among the highest in the sport.

    Since then, coaches' salaries have skyrocketed, with several signing deals for $2 million or more annually. Virginia's Al Groh received a new deal last week worth $1.7 million this season and more than $2 million when the contract runs out in six years.

    Compared to other top programs, Tech's assistants are being paid below the norm. Seven schools in the Southeastern Conference paid their assistants an average total of $1.3 million in 2004.
