http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-...ons-unanswered"Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Saints owner is bad---->hires Gm----->Gm hires "no name" coach---->winning ensues---->owner deemed brilliant because he allows them to do their job. From there the original poster brings up the Dolphins: have faith in Ireland---->supposedly good Gm if you believe hard enough that he is a good Gm----->Ross has the best idea, though not most original, ever----->fans supposedly want "stars" and "playcallers" while owner and Gm really know whats going on (wink wink)---->brings up more football greats that have utterly nothing to do with this situation---->ends post with conclusion about how we are supposedly following the Saints method.
Do tell, which part of that isn't absolutely bathed in ignorance?
Zodiac, this is one of the best posts I've read here. You are 110% correct. I'm tired of all the negitivity on this board. Ross is doing this the right way, and Ireland is a good GM. I think they'll get the right coach.
When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.
We haven't draft a QB in Round 1 since fricken 1983!!!! We need to find that great QB once and for all!!!
Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.
I am still trying to figure out where all this talent is that Ireland found for the team. Ireland has brought mediocre players to the team and it shouldn't surprise that the fins record is mediocre because of this. I am not saying this cannot be fixed, even within a season's time but I do not believe that Ireland is the man to do it. I may be wrong in my assessment of the talent on this team and with a new coach we may yet make the playoffs this year, we shall see.
