Quote:
“The first thing about Houston is it’s an organization run from a different perspective,” Joseph told HeraldOnline.com. “In Cincy, the team lives off money it earns from football. Houston’s owner has other business interests and he controls the money. Numerous things that go on such as the way Houston interacts with my family; we’re treated in a first-class way. They helped us when my wife lost our baby daughter in a miscarriage. But they help with anything you ask of them because they are a very caring organization with positive attitudes about its players. In Cincy, we’re told how much Gatorade we could take home. In Houston we get what we request. You get soap and deodorant at your request. You don’t have a roommate on road trips.”
This statement says so much.

If a pro football organization is counting Gatorade bottles, you know it's run by a bunch of cheap som'bithces. I doubt "all you can drink Gatorade" is a selling point for the Texans, but you can be damn sure that a team that is keeping track of Gatorade bottles will be well known as cheap. And isn't it in the team's best interests to keep these guys hydrated? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Above and beyond that, though, is the idea that an organization cares about it's players, especially when perceived from the owner on down. That, above all else, is telling players something about integrity and honor, even in a cut-throat business like pro football.

I do not look at this as airing "dirty laundry". He's only conveying his experiences and how they contrast each other. We already know that the Bengals is a garbage organization, so this is not really telling us something we don't know.

JJ Watt likes his free Gatorade, too.

I believe the more often than not our players leave and say good things about their new teammates/organization/city and we collectively have a tendancy to interpret what maybe they didn't say about Houston in a bad light.

Not to say that no former player has ever said bad things about Houston or the Texans. It's happened. I just think when a player goes somewhere else we have a tendancy to take what he says personally and sometimes in the wrong way.

This place becomes a ticking time bomb about one or two weeks before camp begins.

It isn't about the value of the perks, it's about the respect and appreciation that they are showing you by providing them.

When a billionaire goes to Vegas it doesn't mean a lot financially to have a suite comped, but it makes you feel much more welcome when a hostess gives you everything you want without even having to ask for it.

Or a less expensive example, when the bagger carriers your groceries to your car. It doesn't really have a monetary value to you, but it is something that makes the company more appealing than the store that refuses to double bag to save a few pennies.

It's about a commitment to providing a quality environment and showing people that you (atleast pretend to) care about them. The Texans go the extra mile, the Bengal's charge for every inch.

That said, a dumbass dog chases its own tail.



And sir, you have NO point when it comes to, nor an example of "pathetic". Whenever all else fails, go to the Grammar Nazi card = pathetic!

Might I impose upon you to spell out the acronym FYI, so I can confirm that you've correctly used the possessive "your", and not the contraction "you're"?

FYI - I believe the question mark goes on the outside of the quotation marks in my statement...




BTW - I know FYI is an initialism, and not an acronym, but I thought calling it an initialism initially might result in many people asking WTF?, and although some people might LOL, others might tell me to STFU.

Not always. If the statement inside the question mark would normally have a period and the question is about that statement, then the question mark goes outside the quotes. And example from teh Grammarbook website:

Quote:
Do you agree with the saying, "All's fair in love and war"?
Here the question is outside the quote.

NOTE: Only one ending punctuation mark is used with quotation marks. Also, the stronger punctuation mark wins. Therefore, no period after war is used.
