That's the bottom line. What difference does it make how we got there (coincidence vs collusion)?

And you guys are way too smart to not realize how much sheep mentality takes over within any institution/organization. C'mon.
Take the mod aspect out of it. There are nearly 70% of people that voted in this poll that would, as you say, give MS at least another year. The poll is completely anonymous. What's the benefit in agreeing with me or SS??

As SS said, GM isn't a big fan of MS. So there's your mod. Happy? Frankly I'm not a big fan of MS right now, and I don't think SS is either. At the end of the day we just don't think firing him is necessarily the best answer. There's a little more grey area to things than you seem to be willing to acknowledge.

I guess ultimately what you're saying is you're right, and there's no room for discussion. Anyone who disagrees with you is clearly an idiot, an apologist, and probably a moderator, or someone who is a mod bootlicker. See where I'm going? I'm guessing you won't.

Well the plot thickens! The one mod you name as a skeptic is nowhere to be found. I smell foul-play, and of course a conspiracy.



In all seriousness, I didn't mean to imply anyone still sticking with this regime is a sycophant. Some folks are just (too) cautious about what's around the next corner. Didn't mean to offend the pacifists, indecisive or generally "go with it" types.

Im telling you that with this bird as my avatar the redskins are unstoppable. Its one of those things that is just going to hold true with no logical explanation for it to do so.

Didn't mean to imply it, yet you've said it on more than one occasion.

And yeah I quoted The Goat

No, I only named one poster (NC) as such. He can taste the dog sh!t you stepped in last year lol.

In all honesty I keep meaning to leave the Shanny debate. I feel confident in two things: by season's end it will be clear to nearly everyone this regime has failed and Snyder/BA will muster the guts to shoe the rat out the door. Call me a hopeless optimist

Pacifists, indecisive or generally go with it types? Wow. Your condescension knows no bounds. Obviously, anyone with an ounce of intelligence or insight would agree with you.

I found this interview of you:

The Goat Making His Point!

You're much more coherent in the video.

I can tell one person never browses the "Debating with the Enemy" section of the forums.

Also, you must have missed my thread a year or so ago about Dhall, or the one about Snyder and his lawsuit? You have selective sight. You see what you want to see, and you pass off any challenge to your illogical statements at "bootlickers" or "apologists".

You'll forgive me if I don't find fault with Kyle Shanahan for RGIII throwing INTs. Also please forgive me for not finding fault with Kyle for RGIII fumbling a football. These are the types of things we rail on you about, not that there aren't faults with Mike. I'll post some things that you'll find more support in your crusade against the regime.


1) Saying it's a rebuild and trading 2nd, 3rd and 4th for a bum QB and broken down LT.

2) Hiring a coordinator who hasn't ran a 3-4 in 11 years and doesn't want to run that scheme.

3) Questionable free agents moves or draft picks.

4) Ego getting in way of team chemistry.

5) Calling a stupid play that would send our QB out as a WR only to open him up to DBs unloading on him.

6) Moronic press conference pretty much calling it a season while they were still mathematically in it.



These will most assuredly get you more support than your statements about coaches being the blame for INTs/Fumbles, or that his past deeds didn't count because he was in a weak division or had X qb. Complaining about the offense when it was in the top 5. Complaining about WR speed, then suggesting we bring in Plaxico or Gaffney. Pumping up another coach who has the same record as our coach. These things will make us sad pandas.

Truthfully, you've been railing on Mike and Crew long before these current events took place and most of it is downright unwarranted. In the future, all we ask is that you please be logical in your criticism of any coach or player. Hell, we may even join you in that criticism. Thanks in advance.

Your truly,

A sycophant, toadie, bootlicking Skins fan.
