Saban on Ronnie Brown:

"We don't have expectations relative to the performance of Ronnie Brown, but we believe he will be a very good player relative to his position of running back relative to other players drafted last year and relative to other running backs in their second year of play. Of course, how we utilize him will be relative to the performance of our passing attack relative to the the offense as a whole relative to game situations relative to the opponents defensive schemes relative to the in-game performance of the defense relative to the opponents offense. And, if there are any other factors I've left out relative to this discussion, it will be relative to those as well. That's all relative to my sense of things as they stand today, relative to this statement."

Q: Can he use a sentance relative to his conversations concerning any Dolphin matter, relative to the media, without 'relative to'???

I do love Nick - but his 'relative to' cracks me up! ;)

No ... it's a joke. I figured it would be an extreme enough example that it would be obvious relative to a real quotation. Of course, perhaps it was too close to reality! :)

from a process standpoint, relative to my usage of relative, it is what it is and we can't have clutter, relatively speaking.
