    I didn't read the entire thread, but has it been brought up that Saban is a complete and total liar?

    why is there so much hate? He was unhappy here. If you want to blame someone, blame Wayne for forcing him to take a job that he threw a boat load of money for. The job was too much. He would have failed more and been fired anyway. The Brees fiasco is one of those situations where it can set back a team for years. Wanny had first crack at Brees. Saban was not into it, and would have failed like prior coaches in Sparano, Cameron, Jimmy, and Wanny. Great teams have great personnel men making decisions. We have not had that in a long time. It's best to be happy for someone that has found peace somewhere.

    There is so much hate because he is an A hole who treats teams like objects, regardless of where he goes. I graduated from FSU and was still offended by how he misled and pimp slapped the Gators organization. I mean, god knows he's a great college coach, but he brought this hate upon himself.

    he is a scumbag. great college coach, can't take that away from him, unfortunately, but a failure in the NFL. Can't take that away from him either, thankfully. Hope it continues if he returns but doubt it.

    Blame Huzienga because he somehow forced Saban to take the job lol. The job was like any other job in the NFL he didnt handle it well and he quit but dolphin fans have a right to be mad that he quit on them

    Lots of Nick Saban talk on the boards lately.

    He must be out winning championships again.

    Like those "Kevin Bacon 6degrees of separation" I'm actually 2-3degrees separated from at that time one of the "little people" in Davie who has not only proferred consistent tales of his douchebaggery, but has also been the recipient of the same scumbaggish behavior most everyone attributes to him.

    But even if not, color me onto "Team Maddog" who I'd believe 101 times out of 100 vs any self-serving attempts at revisionist history. However, although Saban is a POS, quitter and liar, when not wearing his college coaching hat, to his credit, he's presently the best at what he does in his environment and was smart enough to realize he was in over his head when dealing with grown-ups.


    Objectively speaking: being great at what you do in an important niche, but also a reprehensible douche is not necessarily mutually exclusive.


    geno and idzik have done the impossible: make jets fans wish the tanny/sanchez days were here again > Darksider, Jetnation
