    When you're a sports fan, hope springs eternal with every new season.

    If it didn't, you'd've drunk the hemlock long ago. ;)

    Both AJ and Norv needed to go - for different reasons - but in the NFL it's rare to cut a GM and not also lose the coaching staff - they're a package deal in general and if split up it's usually the GM who stays. I prefer to have the GM pick his own coaching staff - it's definitely a partnership in many respects even if they can be graded independently. Since we weren't talking GM's in the thread I didn't mention TT specifically, who I think has done an excellent job, his work with what little resources he had has certainly been impressive.

    A back handed compliment by someone in the contingent of the self serving intelligentsia brigade on here, is still some form of affirmation, unless you rather have a wet and sloppy kiss from Conc instead ;)

    A partnership when they're fired but not in how the performance of one is packaged with the performance of the other. There's a reason people are doing this.

    As is knowledge of the rules of the game... :D
    And lest you forget, respect is a two way street, you have to give to get in a community such as this. :tup:

    Why does this exchange conjure up images of two pooftahs in a steam bath?

    (slowly seeking the exit before maybe being coerced into giving or getting!)

    I think secrecy in that department is somewhat a thing of the past... (at least in the big cities). I am sure downtown Toronto presents the greatest concentration of bungholery buds of anywhere in the world.

    I don't know if you are cute enough for this crowd. Conc certainly isn't!

    So are you saying that you belong on the Conc team?

    And what exactly is that reason?

    I'm curious as to how you can say they're not a packaged deal. It's standard practice in the NFL for a GM to come in and be in charge of inserting a coaching staff (some owners obviously have more/less say depending on the organization). The GM and HC's working relationship is pretty important. That said, because their roles are different, certainly they can be graded on their performance separately, but they should also be graded as a team. They don't operate 100% independently of one another.

    Poofessoria! I am truly disappointed in this question. You should know. Conc is the BT Messiah. He speaks of love, truth and respect of horrid adminstration and bad posters. I am the anti-Conc who is destined to be vanquished as the BT Beelzebub!

    Perhaps it has to do with those videos you get from behind the beaded curtains at that certain video rental place you frequent? ;)

    You are showing your age a bit Conc. I am sure that stuff is online. One of the gay producers of a comedy show I used to edit just HAD to show me one of those things years and years ago. It was two rollerbladers making a pitstop at a public washroom. I could only deal with about 30 seconds worth. On the otherhand I have also edited some pretty gruesome war footage. That didn't bother me at at. Go figure.

    Whoa there Tiger! I meant in the cutsie department NOT BT politics! If you are cute (you inferred in your prior post that Conc was not), then maybe Downtown T should be on your visit list. #imjustsaying ;)
