Your answer to why we were doing that was "quite simply, depth."
I knew that was not the case and was surprised by your curt, short, smart ass answer.
I also thought that was one of the stupidest answers I had ever heard.
Now you seem to be down on Trotter, calling him a high priced LB coming off two mediocre seasons...
What gives?
You seem to change positions on things more than your underwear, and you come off as some authority who knows everything just because you are one of the moderators of this site.
Well, allow me to say-
I TOLD YOU SO!
Wow, hmmm, I'm not even sure where to start.

Smart assed answer? Sorry you took it that way but in no way was I trying to be a smart ass.

As far as being a stupid answer why is depth such a stupid answer? When Trotter leaves and we sign someone like Holdman for example, we'll still have nice depth at LB so I really don't understand where you're going with trying to shoot down my reasoning of depth.

As for being down on Trotter now, I have never been that high on him to begin with. I have always said the last two seasons he was disappointing and didn't live up to his big contract.

And what I really don't understand nor appreciate is you calling me out saying that I come off as some know it all just because I'm a moderator on this site.

Actually I am a bit more than just the moderator. Lord only knows the countless hours and $$ out of my own pocket I've dumped into this site over the last few years. But I wouldn't expect you to know that so I won't hold that comment against you.

To each his own I guess, if I offended you I apologize. And if it makes you happy then fine, you're right and I'm wrong. You called Trotter getting the boot and I didn't. Sorry but my crystal ball was a little cloudy that day.

I dont know you Matty but its been a pleasure reading and posting the last two days. For whatever youve done to this site I appreciate it and am glad to have found it. If you need any help I have a lot of computer knowledge and may be able to help you. Dont hesitate to ask.

"Quite Simply, Depth" is not a smart ass answer by any means. Furthermore, as Matty said he's more than just a moderator on the site. I'm just a moderator but to say that I'm any more important to this site than the Cpayne's, Daseal's, etc. of this site is missing the bigger picture. What Matty has done, through his time and money, is provide a forum for intelligent debate about our beloved Redskins. To dismiss Matty as some power hungry ignoramus is essentially biting the hand that feeds you here.

But everyone's contribution is what really makes it work. Take SkinsnCanes for example, just two days he's been on the warpath and already his are posts I always look forward to reading. Anyone incapable of accepting other's opinions, even when it doesn't agree with their own or who feels the need to spit out "I Told You So's" apparently doesn't understand the true purpose of the warpath.

Sometimes you'll be right, sometimes you'll be wrong. And opinions do change. I'd like to think that I've helped shape some other fans' opinions through some of my posts, as I know other people have helped shape mine

Great replies, matty & smootsmack. A good show of professionalism in the face of idiocy is quite a feat.

I know I share the same feelings as the others on this site in that it was so awesome to find a site of fellow skins fans to talk to about our team. I must echo the praises for the hard work(and money) you, Mattyk72, and everyone else who puts forth the effort into providing this site for us. While we may all have slighty different or even opposing views on some topics discussed, I think pretty much every member appreciates this site and those who have made it possible.
Thank you for your hard work and .

The great thing about this site is the difference of opinion. I'm probably the only person within a 100 mile radius of DC that would still like to see Spurrier involved in the Redskin's orginization. I like Gibbs, but I really think Spurrier has potential. Now, on most forums people would be closed minded and blast me from here to the moon, but not on this forum! People will take little shots, which is more than fine because I put my share in and it's all in fun.

I've learned so much in the few months I've been on this site it's amazing. Everything from the mods such as Matty, JoeCrisp, and SmootSmack with their great analysis of moves and strategy that I was previously unaware of, to the number crunching that CrazyCanuck does. I'm also put into awe everytime I see how well Sports, Offiss, and most every other poster puts into their replys.

I for one am glad there is a messageboard on the internet with an intelligent user-base that can answer nearly any Redskin question you have within 20 minutes. Everyone is friendly and more than willing to give you a hand. On one hand I want this board to get the recognition it deserves, on the other I want it to stay just like it is so it isn't littered with people wasting space with profanity about the Cowboys. As much as I hate the Cowboys, it simply isn't productive.

Matty and the rest of the admin's here at the Warpath have really put a lot of time and effort into this site. They have my thanks, and I'm sure most everyone here will agree with me on this. Raleigh, I hope you think about this and issue Matty the apology he deserves. He's entitled to any decesion change he wants, we've all made them especially during the typical Redskin's offseason. Trotter is a great linebacker, if used correctly, which he hasn't been. I think Williams understands this and wasn't planning on using him how he's always played.

PS - SPURRIER RULES

I actually wouldn't be too against the notion of spurrier remaining on the redskins staff myself, Daseal. maybe as an offensive coordinater or something to that extent.

Daseal, I think you and I are a perfect example of two people that can have totally differing opinions yet we can always keep our discussions civil. LOL

Seems like we're always battling about Spurrier, but I do understand and respect your opinions as I'm sure you do mine.

Truth is we're all going to have differing opinions from time to time, after all that's what discussions are for and why we're here, how boring would it be if we all agreed?

Discussions may get heated once in a while and that's to be expected, but it's never personal, and I think most of us are mature enough to realize that.

Spurrier might make an OK cordinator somewhere, he'll go down as a great college coach. but to say he did anythign right when it came to running an organization is a huge understatement. I always got frusterated when someone would do something wrong and his responce would be to say that were all professionals and knwo what we did wrong and will work to correct it without him doing anything.

As a side note, I was very excited to read that Gibbs brough officials to the first minicamp practice. Although I dont want our players to be hurt it was a great opportunity for our backup online to learn to work together. I read they had a lot of false starts but its only march and theres plenty of time to start correcting the problem. As opposed to waiting until November...

I'll just say this-
I'm all for differences of opinion, and I have no problem with people disagreeing with me. That is indeed what makes these boards fun.
Also, all of my posts to this point have always been positive, and I've praised several of the moderators of this site.
But several of Matty's answers to my posts came off as curt and short. I don't mind someone disagreeing with me, but I do mind it if they are a smart ass to me.
How can any statement that begins with "quite simply" not be interpreted as smart assed, I ask you? Doesn't that imply "heh stupid, the answer is pretty simple?"
And I'm not the type to take that lying down.
I overreacted with my previous post and for that I apologize, but I do not think I was wrong.
In any event, I do appreciate the work you guys do for this site, and it is a great site.

Raleighskinsfan,

You are stoopid. I mean, letting your emotions get the best of you like a chick.... Maybe when you read Matty's post it was just your "time of the month!"

We all disagree and put each others posts down all the time. That part of the fun. Just give it right back to them. All of us (MattyK72 included) sometimes make dumb posts. Don't sweat it, just learn to laugh about it.
Ade Jimoh Fan Club has the best sense of humor on this site. His prior posts about Ade Jimoh are LOL funny.

Thanks for that defensewins. You're right.
And ouch Ade Jimoh Fan Club! That one hurt. The truth always does! I'll keep it in check in the future. That was very out of character for me. I usually keep a very cool demeanor.....

Note to self, never start a post with "quite simply" ever again.

What other smart-assed answers have I given you here, Raleigh? I'd really like to know.
