Nice justification there Marcus. I guess you live by the phrase "if you can't beat them, join them." since you've insulted the "entire" board now and not just the ones you disagree with. Nice!

My apologies for posting something related to the thread in this thread, but McCoy has an excellent point. My point was that for these folks the reason the players suck and the reason the coach is a doofus is that McNair is cheap. And, you may ask, what is the proof that McNair is cheap? Why, is it self-evident! The players suck and the coach is a doofus!

OK, the rest of you carry on with your love fest.

Bob McNair is a cheapskate. He spent less on our franchise AND stadium that Jerry Jones spent on just his stadium.
I might neg rep myself for this post.

Being a vote of Obama has absolutely nothing to do with anything.

Dude, I feel your pain. I went on a drunken rant on here about Herv, about a post he clearly warned everyone about, and I deservedly had the hell neg repped out of me. I would have about 2 bazillion rep right now if not for that post.
As far as wishing death on someone? I disagree. There are some people who deserve that. Just not over any so trivial as a MB.

McNair isnt cheap.. He spent how much to buy a team?? How much to help build a stadium (although us taxpayers footed the majority of the bill). Did he not spend money to get people here that fanned out??? Did he not spend money to get people here that didnt work out *ahem* *cough Eric Moulds* *cough*...

Point being, "Uncle Bob" is not cheap, he's just made bad decisions where he has spent money.... But to say he's "cheap" is asinine!!!!

TB, you missed the whole of the post. For that, you get a and lose immunity for the rest of the week. You need to step it up or you'll be behind KJ on the depth chart. And KJ is actually off the charts in that are right now...BTW, that was more

EDIT: I must spread rep. Can someone get Texan_Bill for me?

...or a Steelers fan
...or a Cowboys fan.

Edit:
The data seems to indicate that we've alternated between big (big = overpaying) spending on the wrong guys and thereby getting burned because they didn't work out.
And pulling back from spending on the right guys (and there's no way to know if they would have worked out here). I mean what sane person wants to throw good money after bad (ok, Dan Synder).

It's like the stock mkt. If you bought Apple or Google low, you're a genius and probably doing quite well. OTOH, if you bought Enron or some of Bernie Madoff's stuff, well, you might get super shy about getting back into the mkt for a while. ...assuming you have any money left

Whether it's cheapness or ineptitude, who gives a rat's butt. Bottom line is we haven't ended up a winner.

We spent money this off season so our previous F/A "burn scars" have healed enough to cast our chips back in the F/A mkt.
And it could also be that there were F/As we could afford that can actually help. Some years the F/A mkt sucked either because what we needed was in short supply which made them hopelessly over mkt value (see Albert Haynesworth, Leigh Bodden)

Eh, if it looks like a Titans fan, smiles like a Titans fan, and smells like a Titans fan, well you know the rest. Lol!

I could smell that guy through the computer.
