Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

On Monday, we gave you our blueprint for managing the Texans' offseason, which included re-signing Mario Williams only if the price is right. There has been much debate online and off about what to do with the talented linebacker, who was on a blistering pace before tearing a pectoral muscle earlier this year. Commenter Matt thinks he knows the answer.

Given the NFL salary cap and the needs of the Texans, resigning Mario would be a HORRIBLE decision. If we could find a way to sign and trade him for picks, then we would be doing great for ourselves; but sign and trades don't seem to occur in football.

Nope, sign and trades don't happen in the NFL. It's going to be a long offseason.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
