In psychology, Stockholm Syndrome is an apparently paradoxical psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. "
Putting that further in perspective Chubbs, would you rather have an owner with the business acumen and general sense who'll step in to quash an Orton trade and $8mil signing or one who's even more headline hungry, but for the wrong reasons who would compel his football people to burn a 3rd for Tebow? How about a pompous owner who over many years has barely sniffed the playoffs, yet considers himself an effective GM instead of hiring football people? Hell, what about "The Garbageman"?? So long as there were arses in the seats, he was perfectly happy to maintain a level that was a notch or two above mediocre and the status quo. Yeah, Ross screwed up with Tony before the light went off and before he actually hired a HC with the potential to be the best since Don, but you know, if oblivious Wayne still owned the team, the chances are good that Tony would still be fist pumping on our sidelines.
All the foregoing aside, it's Ross's money so it's his prerogative; If we truly are on the right track and it's not a mirage like in 08, if the team builds it, they will come and the seats will fill up. Whether you or I like Ross or not will not matter nor likely affect our commitment to attend home games.
Kudos Mr. Ross.
see the Henne/Marino comment gets overblown. I remember when he made it, at the time people on the board loved the comment as Henne still looked promising.
Ross has a long, long way to go before he reaches Wayne-like levels of ineptitude, but his decision to extend Sparano and bring him back for 2011 cost the team an entire season and a whole 'nother year of wasted time. We'll see if his decisions post-Sparano redeem him.
