Oh, London Fletcher, Tapp said. Hands down. Hands down, that guys unbelievable. Host Danny Rouhier pushed Tapp for an explanation. Help us with that a little bit, Rouhier said. We were actually just talking about this before you came on, and London, listen, an unbelievable career, a Hall of Famer in my mind, finally getting the attention he deserves toward the end, but weve seen him miss tackles like weve never seen London Fletcher play. Is he still playing at that high of a level to you? Still playing at a high level, Tapp replied. Londons a man that makes this whole defense work. Without him, its a tough task to try to replace him. I know yall probably would say Ryan Kerrigan, whos been playing lights out as well, but London is the thing that really makes this defense and makes the team go. Hes a leader, hes been there before, hes going to be there again, and like you said, hes a Hall of Fame player. Fletcher over Kerrigan this year is a tough choice to defend, but I guess theres something to be said for a HOF reputation. Feel free to debate in the comments. The audio is here . Come for the Fletcher love, stay to hear Tapp joke about tackling his wife.
Three London-based fund managers leave Cohen’s SAC Capital
Crouch and Chan were quantitative portfolio managers, according to their LinkedIn profiles. The website listed the men’s appointments as being terminated but did not give details on why they left. Their departures came after review season. Last month SAC offered retention bonuses to some staff for next year after the U.S. government charged the $14 billion firm with securities and wire fraud, prompting outside investors to pull nearly all of their capital. The firm has denied all wrongdoing. The news comes one day after SAC energy portfolio manager Nick Tiller told colleagues he was retiring. In an email, Tiller said he is looking forward to spending more time with his family and wants to take a “real vacation” where he doesn’t have to monitor and trade his portfolio by mobile phone all day long. A copy of the email was seen by Reuters. He said he plans to devote time to his charity, Sustainable America. “Through Sustainable America I’ll be working to help build more sustainable and less vulnerable food and energy systems after years of researching and profiting from those same sectors,” Tiller wrote.
