eaglesrule - don't feed the trolls please
Namecalling really isn't befitting someone of your tenure and experience here on FFC. You should consider not doing it in the future. The FFC is a wonderful place to meet for friendly and intelligent discussions. Let's leave the name calling nastyness at the door. Okay?
As for "trolls", they can/will exist on both sides of an issue, and in this case, will continue to exist as long as some folks believe that pro sports(and their employees) somehow exist outside society and the real world where the rest of us live.
If you adhere to the definition of "troll", then it may be the folks who first mention TO's past behavioral misdeeds who are the "trolls".... However, in TO's and in many other players cases, their past behavioral problems can and probably should be a part of any discussion with regard to their potential football performance in the coming year. One side will say his behavior will outweigh his football talents, while the other side will say it won't and both sides will each give their reason's why and defend their opinions. Probably, in this case, there can be no trolls?
Anyway, (to get this thread back on topic) I think the TO/Eagle BS was very badly mishandled and way overblown as a result of the Eagles over the top discipinary action and subsequent hearings. I can easily see even what happened last year with TO having been handled better if another team/management was involved. Maybe, Dallas or KC is the type of team/management that TO needs?
