Discussion in 'Texans Talk' started by Texans34Life, May 2, 2006.
Cass is about to pop a vein w/ the questions Wingo is asking him...
GOD, the PERFECT comeback to after they showed Justices comment was "Hey, that guy wrote off the Astros last year in May...what does he know?"
That interview certainly confirms that the Texans had not made a decision on this pick until last week.
Someone please recap for those of us who missed it.....
I would have liked to have seen that. Any recaps?
The guide on my TV said it will come on again on ESPN at 1 pm Central time tommorow. So if you missed it you can catch it again then or set your tivo.
Wow sounds like Justice and Casserly are on BAD terms with each other.
Cass had some good stuff to say. I especially liked him making fun of Justice and the other Chronicle tools. Thought he handled the questions well, though of course I suspect the Bush-or-bust crowd will continue to declare it was all about the money or some crap.
i dont have espn so could someone recap the best parts.
i do so love good smack talk. good one cass.
Oh Richard does a great job of alienating the Houston sports teams. I'd be surprised if any Houston athlete or front office person can stand the guy.
Reading comments on his blog is a struggle. The combined IQ of the majority of the folks commenting on there can't be that much.
I dunno why the Chronicle continues to use him. If someone is going to be the beat writer for your local sports team.. wouldnt you want someone who isnt going to drag that team through the mud at every chance they get? Doesnt that kinda build a BAD relationship between the team and the paper? Does the chronicle think the Texans are going to give them the time of day now?
The Chronicle needs competition. We need the Post to return.
Ask Dale Robertson about Dan Pastorini.
well in his defense, he's not the beat writer for anyone. he's a columnist (read: give opinions)
I watched it and CC clearly states that he picked for the need of the team. He says that it was not the money the both agreed on 54 million. The interviewer showed him some bashing of the pick on the local newspaper there and on it the headlines were pretty brutal to him and the decisions. He says that he cannot be bothered by such tirvia opinion on himself and that he's there to make team decisions based aon need and one for sure was defense and to win games. Being swayed by these articles does not fade him although he truly appreciates and respects the fan base and the thinking of getting the obvious but in this case it was not one player but what fit the team at the time. He feels very comfortable and so does his staff on the draft selections that they made.
I hope I convey this somewhat but I try. This is not my opinion but just trying to convey it.
After the interview on ESPN2 the other sportcasters had a pretty good lenthly subject on the Mario vs Reggie #1 pick thing which is worthy. The consensus was that Reggie is the better if not best player to pick but agreed that the Texans fit better with the pick of Mario as #1. Also stated that Barry Sanders was great in his time but they only went to the playoffs once.
I hear it may be on tomorrow.
I saw an article the other day by Justice where he said Casserly will not talk to him. It may have been on the Justice & McClain show instead of an article. But it was said and I had not heard that before.
yeah, i think that might have been on today's paper because I read the same thing. I do understand why he won't talk to him too, he should stick to baseball, either way, that guy is a tool.
Casserly has refused to speak to at least one reporter that would be me who has been critical of him. He has aired out talk-show hosts off the air. His Capt. Queeg routine has gotten old.
McNair said last week that Casserly has a year left on his contract and that the two men will sit down next week and discuss the future.
''We've been focused on the draft," McNair said.
Next week, it's Casserly's turn. It'll be McNair's toughest call.
You can read the whole article if you follow the link.
In my opinion..Justice has done the impossible.. he has made Casserly look good. I wouldnt talk to the punk either. Honestly I wouldnt **** on his head if his eyebrows were on fire.
Come on Casserly talks from both holes in his body. To state that "he picked for the need of the team" directly contradicts his philosophy from a couple of years ago when he was quoted as saying you draft for needs in the 1st round. Pathetic. Simply pathetic that he's still the GM and front man of this organization when fans nor the media have no respect for him and can see a trail of disappointments under his tenure. Hell no! Casserly Go! Hell no! Casserly Go!
