If FA is indeed delayed, this will be front page news. Giants fans may be overtaking Dallas fans as most asshole-ish fans out there. That was disgusting.
Thanks for posting Serv.
And **** Mara.
I wonder if this is the old Tom from ES? He's the only one who put any kind of rational thought into his response.Tom in NY said:I blame the media and their unwillingness to understand this issue.
The easy story is "it was an uncapped year, therefore no rules." Unfortunately, it takes a few moments of reading and understanding basic accounting to get why the cowboys and redskins were found to have cheated.
It was NOT a matter of what teams spent in salaries or signing bonuses in 2010, but rather that these two teams decided to write off exorbitant previous bonuses into the 2010 year, thus freeing MORE cap space than they were entitled to in 2011 and future years. The league agreed, ahead of 2010 NOT to do this so that teams were not given a competitive advantage, and must fairly feel the effects of previous years of spending.
By the fact that 30 other teams agreed not to do these accounting tricks tells the story.
There is no "collusion" as it was not about $$ spent, but how the accounting would be handled.
But why would we expect anyone from the media to, you know, read and attempt to comprehend when it is far easier to create a sensationalist story.
Reminds me of bandwagon Pokes fans from the 90's and of course Steeler fans. The "whatever we do is the right thing because we got rings" approach. I lived in NJ for a long stretch and they honestly weren't as bad as they are now. But during that stretch Philly was a annual contender and their fans were horrible.Giants fans may be overtaking Dallas fans as most asshole-ish fans out there. That was disgusting.
