I think our coaches said something to correct any misinterpretaiton that the skins coaching staff supports or was involved with the brief since the coaches association implicitly cited to the skins coaches when in actuality, the skins coaches were never contacted or conferred with re. the brief.

Geez, you would think they would have contacted the skins coaching staff before they pretty mich put their name on it.

Re: Redskins coaches support owners in lockout

I haven't read the brief yet, but on its face I was dissappointed to read the Burgundy and Gold coaches aren't together with the other coaches in the NFL in supprt of the of the players.

The way I heard it explained today on NFL Radio is this was the coaches not taking sides, but simply speaking out against the lockout in general. Apparently there was some miscommunication between the association and the Skins and the Skins may have jumped the gun a bit by issuing their statement without fully understanding the intent of the brief.

I find it ironic that average people would turn the other cheek or side with a person if they were being paid, YET are the same ones that bitch when their representatives and senators do the same thing. Guess what, don't bitch at politicians for siding(aka..voting) for special interests or corporate tax breaks. They too are being paid by them. I don't want to go off topic with this, but the above mindset is also mind boggling. It's one thing to side with the owners if you actually take their stance, it's another thing to take their stance soley for the fact you are being paid. If I were a coach, I would stay the **** out of it regardless if I were being paid or not.

Now, what the Redskins coaching staff has done is alienate the players and chosen a side. Pretty ****ing stupid imo.

Re: Redskins coaches support owners in lockout

Curiousity questions,

Did the Skins and Saints coaches let their position be known to the courts? If not, then the distancing statements wouldn't really affect the amicus brief, right? So what difference does it make in the long run?

I think they did it out of fear for their jobs.
