True. He didn't have to beat his ass, then go into the locker room and say "who else wants some?" and stare donovan down though, either.....
So you’re saying that this non-player goes into the locker room and challenges a player to a fight and TO is at fault because he blows up at him? Is Reid at all in control of the locker room? Why would he allow that to happen? Do you think that it was a spur of the moment thing? Reid had to have seen trouble coming, but maybe he wanted to get rid of a malcontent and knew this would be the final straw. That isn’t being very supportive, nor was the whole contract posturing in the off season. Reid didn’t seem to believe TO when he said he would be there, but he wouldn’t be happy. He was more concerned with drawing his line in the sand and watching the team lose a chance to win.
At the end of the day it was still TO's fault, not the Eagles. To argue otherwise is to say it is your fault your car got stolen because you left it unlocked. Maybe it wasn't wise, but they aren't to balme.
No, to argue otherwise would be more like saying it the cars fault it wouldn’t start in December when the previous owner told you it had troubles starting in cold weather. Point being, Reid and the Iggles were well aware of the troubled past of TO, and for them blame TO is silly becuase he was acting in character. And they did nothing to try to prevent or minimize the problems.
I think that is kind of asisnine (sorry).
You don't have to apologize, it lacks sincerity. I disagreed with you, offering up a differing viewpoint. Playing Devil's advocate as it were. Your response is to call someone's thoughts assinine, ignorant, or whatever. I wouldn't pretend to know as much about your team as you, but at the same time you should try to allow that sometimes distance can lead to a different perspective and just respect that for what it is. An opinion.
