Re: More digs at the Skins from Fatty P

Looking at this article brings up a big question in my mind. Seeing what Witherspoon signed for, would you rather have Witherspoon or Randle-El? I think that I would rather have Witherspoon.

kinda torn, cause El is a good slot guy and a punt returner (and we could use both), but as far as value, witherspoon is a much better deal.

Re: More digs at the Skins from Fatty P

Sometimes i think these clowns write stuff just for the sake of bashing. Anybody who follows this team KNOWS the skins are filling needs with FA. And doesn't it make sense to get a free agent if one of yours leaves? They knew Clark is leaving so they get Adam. The worst thing any team can do is let FA's leave and not replace them with quality. Take the Packers, for an example. Fatty needs to get his facts straight before he writes this crap!

well, we didn't know clark was leaving. In fact we knew he wanted to stay, but the FO felt arch was someone they needed. once clark lost his starting spot, then he wanted out.

This post makes no sense. The CBA did get extended. Given that fact, everyone and their brother should have seen the standard restructures coming.

The restructures you're talking about would have gone into effect only if the CBA deal never got done. They were special circumstances, but they were void as soon as the deal was signed. Once that happened, it was back to business as usual, which included the standard restructures.

In That Guy's defense, he was responding to my earlier post where we were discussing Pasta's assertion (prior to the CBA being approved) that the Skins would be playing 20-30 rookies if the CBA didn't go through.

I stand by my original post That Guy, it was an example of shoddy analytical journalism simply because their was no attempt to verify it from the source or even to seek the Skins' FO point of view. Rather, he went to OTHER gm's and asked them about the Skins salary issues. Does this method demonstrate a bias? IMHO - yes. Again, it is not an isolated instance, as in his latest comments, it represents a consistent lack of seeking any facts that would support the actions Skins FO actions but then reaching conclusions that would seem to require an analysis of all sides of an issue rather than just one point of view.

Re: More digs at the Skins from Fatty P

It can be called shoddy journalism, but at the time there was a chance it could have been a real possibility. a week later the restructures happened and everyone would have been happy either way.

i understand all that, I think you missed the part where i was responding to JR's post about one of pasta's claims (just one of the hundreds) that was somewhat true at the time.
