How many of you would seriously consider moving companies if they somehow revoked your ability to keep points/awards/miles/status from business travel?

I’d be gone. Less so for the money than just the principle and why the moves says about company culture. You hear rumblings at D? All the firms seem to be getting stingy so I would be shocked if someone did it.

I would likely leave if travel remained the same

I’d be gone. It would have to be made up to me significantly some other way. Agreed that it’s more about the principle

If I know 2020, and I’m pretty sure I do, Biden will win the popular vote by 4 or 5, running up the score in democratic bastions, but lose the entirety of the sun belt by 0-3 points including a very close race in Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, and Arizona. Biden will win WI and MI by slight margins and the PA result will take weeks and end in Supreme Court somehow giving trump the victory. The margin will be 19 votes (a nod to covid). Who wants to give me odds on this?

Going into last night I had a 10 point lead with DeAndre Hopkins to play and a flex (David Montgomery or Allen Robinson) and my boss had Taylor Lockett. Thought I had this on lock and then Lockett decides to go off for 50+ points. Now I'm down 20 points with an open flex spot for Montgomery or Robinson. Leaning towards Robinson since Montgomery hasn't had a good game since Week 2. Thoughts?
