Re: Around the League...Training Camp Style!

I think Shanahan's PR drive to absolve him from any blame at the end of last season should be enough to keep him from coaching any other team. Any smart owner should realize that this wasn't the old Redskins situation and that he was fully in charge of everything, yet did not get it done.

Agreed. He successfully benched Griffin for the final however many games, so saying Griffin has all control is patently false. Shanny was taking shots at the end of the year last year, especially when it became clear he probably would not return.

I'm surprised it took Shanahan so long to take a shot and I'm surprised it was as subdued as it was.

And NFL network isn't really anyone that matters. But if you know people around the league then you know the story GM's and Owners have about Shanahan's tenure here is not the same as fans/media.

Anyone who's worked for the redskins (or any team for that matter) or been close with anyone who has knows there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes that the average fan never finds out about. A variety of reasons contribute to that, one being that you have to be behind the scenes to start with, the other being that people in the media (local media mainly) are not interested in losing their job, or compromising the job of their source, just for the sake of 'getting the truth out there.'

A lot went on behind the scenes at the end of 2012 and throughout the 2013 season. To sit back and blame Shanahan for all of it is lol. And if you think the GM's and owners in this league are restricted to narrative the majority of fans are... then lol again.
There are a lot of owners/GMs whatever that don't know what went on inside Redskins Park. Just like Snyder/Allen don't know all that goes on everywhere else.

But at the end of the day, why are we still talking about him?

I almost feel bad for people when they have to defend a terrible position in the media. I wonder if Adolpho Birch was forced to defend the suspension as part of his job or if he actually believed it was the right thing to do on top of actively playing a role in Rice being limited to two games.

Regardless these are the type of things that people have an easy time justifying in back rooms but when they're brought out into the spotlight they're essentially F'd.


I'd suggest boycotting as many NFL money making purchases and activities as people can manage as an outright boycott is physically imp.o...ssi....ble, kind of like the physicality Ray Rice used on his wife. Remember kids, always observe the third rule of Fight Club.

You expect maybe the head guy to react and explain a company's unpopular position, not a no name dipshit like Adolpho; no offense to Adolpho of course.

They will eventually but usually it's the relative unknowns that get trotted out first to tote the company line. Of course at this rate I expect to see a story like this within the next week

Re: Around the League...Training Camp Style!

On a lighter note, Andre Reed is quickly rising on my list of former non-Redskin NFL players I really like:

Andre Reed is a HOF potty mouth and we love it | Trending Buffalo

Hilarious re: Manziel

Re: Around the League...Training Camp Style!

Report: Josh Gordon 'barely' failed drug test, will argue 2nd-hand smoke - CBSSports.com

Let me be clear, based on lectures from my stoner friends back during my college days it downright difficult to fail a drug test with second hand smoke. The internets backs up my stoner friends.

Quote:
Will Second Hand Smoke Show up in Drug Test?

It is very unlikely that second hand smoke will make you fail a drug test. However, it can leave traces of the active chemical in the marijuana, tetrahydracannabinol, or THC for short. This amount of THC is not likely to alert most drug tests. In addition, most drug tests are highly sophisticated, and can avoid those false positives that might come from second hand smoke inhalation.
With that said, given the fact that people are currently up in arms over the NFL being tougher on recreational drug use then they are on domestic violence I say go in for the kill.
