Nice post JW. Oddly enough I bring long knives to every warpath meeting. Incase SmootSmack starts to get uppity!

Do you think that the Ade Jimoh Fan Club brings long knives to THEIR meetings?

Re: How reporters are so quick to point fingers

Even if you have enough money it probably won't be enough because your lifestyle will almost certainly increase in cost. Private schools cost money and the fact that you are willing to quit your job spells doom. This is a good read.

Oh I won't deny that rich people have problems. I just feel like sometimes the unintelligent people are the ones who get rich and squander the money.

Re: How reporters are so quick to point fingers

Thanks for the positive feedback on the post. But most likely, Danny-boy will go out and do something stupid and prove me wrong!

It's never boring in the offseason with the skins... it reminds me of the Chinese curse: may you live in interesting times.

Re: How reporters are so quick to point fingers

Coles demanded a restructured eal when he got traded because he KNEW IT WOULD KILL A TRADE. He figured there was no way the Skins could trade him because of the cap issue. When the skins looked like they might go ahead and do it anyways he asked for more money to scare the Jets off. He wants to be a FA plain and simple. I think the manuvuering on his part shows this is a money issue now. This pisses me off. The NFL has a CBA with a cap for a reason...so greedy bastard ass punk football players don't sell their damn soles every year and kill the continuity in the league. So basically Coles got pissy that he wasn't catching TDs and decided to prey on Gibbs' honesty, loyalty and caring by asking out. He knew that Gibbs, as a stand up guy who cares about people and wants only the best for his team and his players, would a) realize a moral responsibilty to help a player he cares about get in a better situation and b) realize having said player around next season might engender locker room issues that he doesn't want his team to have to deal with. Knowing this he asked to be released in effect putting into motion a calculated ploy to get more money and more TDs. He doesn't give two craps about anything but his own wants and he's trying to use Gibbs at the expense of the Redskins and his friends. What punk. I would give him respect for doing this within the organization rather than within the media but that is probably a calculated ploy to keep his supposed intregity intact.

I agree with every word of this post. I never really liked LC as is evident by every post i ever wrote about him would atest. I have mixed emotions on this whole thing now. Part of me wants him off this team no matter what, and the other part of me says f-ck him I am going to make him play out every last second of that contract...

Re: How reporters are so quick to point fingers

I would like to see him play out every second of his contract. I'm sure it would be amazing how different his attitude would be if the Redskins were winning next year. VERY few people are just begging to leave WINNING teams.

Re: How reporters are so quick to point fingers

Jenkins writes a couple of football articles a year, and they're always a major slam on Snyder.

Re: How reporters are so quick to point fingers

I know.. I probably didn't. Sometimes I only get a chance to come in after like 2-3 hours of posting and I try to read as much as I can. My fault.
