Wait what happened to that list of reasons why its not true starting with his "1) Can't restructure twice in a fiscal year". Before Tuesday, wouldn't that still be in the same fiscal year Mr. McClain? What a boob, time to dust off one of my old John McClain jokes...

I love it when he talks about his movie career whenever he's on 610 radio. I heard they are already remaking the movie "Precious", except with a few cultural changes to the characters. McClain is supposedly in the running to be cast as the main character, the one that was originally portrayed by that obese african american girl.

I also love how 610 rolls the red carpet out for this guy despite his constant giving of misinformation, but is quick to try rip Bob Allen and spend hours on air doing so due to some technicality in wording

That's contradictory to what he's been quoted as saying, but like I've stated in other threads, "the proof is in the puddin'". I'll hide-N-watch.

John McClain gets scooped, retaliates by saying it isn't true and they haven't even talked about it, and then does the ultimate backpedal by saying it'll probably be done tuesday.

How effing worthless can you be.

When I first heard this rumor, it made sense. Then after thinking about it, why would it gradually increase?

Supposedly it's going to go up because the Owners will be making a lot more money with the new TV deal starting 2014. It's not going to gradually increase, they're going to get their money up front, that year.

Why would the NFLPA allow the owners to nickel & dime them?

Default Re: Andre Johnson restructures contract

Well, apparently there's another blog/Q&A session that John McClain is a part of with the Chronicle. Link here, but I posted the "meat" of the session below:


What about the report by Lewis "Sausage Fingers" Malone that Golden Corral will unveil chicken-fried corn on the cob in April?

John McClain: What do I think about it? Totally bogus. It's still in the trial phase, and won't be ready to roll out to customers until May at the earliest.

How do you know?

McClain: Because I'm on the Trial Committee. Duh. Next question.

Would you ever contemplate actually eating Lewis' fingers if you and Lewis were trapped on a deserted island and had nothing to eat?

McCLain: Ah, a trick question! Depends on if we had any syrup or not.

Is it true you make your own syrup, John, and if so...how?

McClain: Nice try, Lewis. You're not getting my syrup recipe you bastard.

Gravy. Your thoughts?

McClain: Should be part of the food pyramid, no doubt about it. Cream gravy, brown gravy, turkey gravy, gravy with bits of crumbled sausage in it, how can it not be in the food pyramid?

The new Nacho-flavored Doritos taco shell at Taco Bell, will it have staying power?

McClain: Hard to say. Does it have the same consistency as a Nacho Doritos chip or is it just a regular shell with some Nacho Dorito flavor sprayed onto it? Call me skeptical, but I've seen some real doozies in my day when it comes to food fads. I'll need a 10-pack before I can reach a verdict, obviously.

Pretty much. It's like I said in the other thread, John McClain couldn't get the inside scoop on a bowl of ice cream...

If he swam a mile every time he changed his story, he would be the next Michael Phelps.

The only way he breaks news is by sitting on it.

His biggest headline of the year was when he fell asleep on his keyboard.

He achieved the rank of "General" by way of field commission after he ate the rest of the army.

The only reason he is called "General" is becuase he ate his body weight in General Tso's chicken!!!

Really don't see how you can make this claim yet. Mario has done all the right things off the field, and I don't think making a claim like this is justified, just yet. Wait about a week before you say things like this.

Default Re: Andre Johnson restructures contract

I could see how AJ might have agreed to a restructure 'in principal' at this point, so that the contract is ready to be faxed to the league office if the Texans come to terms with Mario (or whoever else they're freeing up money for).

Obviously if they can't come to terms with whoever else they need to to make all the deals work, then its pointless taking a future hit when you could afford it this season.

Anyway, AJ never fails to come through for this team, everything about that guy's contract situation has just oozed class throughout his entire career. And btw, some of these other slimebags would do well to take notice of the way AJ handles his contract situations, because the guy is a very rich man despite managing to do the little things to help the team. Would be nice to see a bit more of that in todays NFL.

Not a rumor in the slightest. Look at the Fox and CBS contracts then get back to me. They're not increasing nearly 80% in 1 year.

From Bloomberg:

"Rights fees for all three networks will increase by about 6 percent or 7 percent a year, according to three people with knowledge of the talks who were granted anonymity because they weren’t authorized to disclose the terms."
