Your post wasn't about Hartline, it was about Tony Sparano and Chad Henne. Which is not the topic of this thread. Two different opinions on two completely different subjects have nothing to do with each other. My taste in movies or politics doesn't dictate my opinion on whether Brian Hartline should be re-signed. My opinion whether current or past on Joe Philbin, Ryan Tannehill, Tony Sparano, Cameron Wake, Chad Henne, Sean Smith, Paul Soliai, etc. has nothing to do with my opinion on Brian Hartline. They are ALL completely different people and situations that should be addressed separately.This opinion of yours is consistent with your past history of approval/defense of whoever happens to be in charge of the Dolphins at the time, and/or playing for the Dolphins at the time, be it Tony Sparano and/or Chad Henne, etc. Therefore your opinion of Brian Hartline should be viewed within this context. This is about Brian Hartline.
I pulled into this thread your previous opinion on Brian Hartline, which I just checked the title of this thread again and is the SUBJECT of this thread. Whether it offended you that I pulled a relevant past opinion on the thread topic is your individual problem to sort through. It wasn't a personal attack or anything ridiculous like that. I apologize to you CK if a past opinion you had was offensive to you. Deeply sorry.
Lets try to get this thread back on track.
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
I believe these two free agents, Hartline and Clemons, are being talked to first because they will be the cheapest and will likely provide more value for the money. The other players like Long, Starks, and Smith will likely ask for way more than they are worth,and negotiation will take much longer. I dont believe we are negotiating with Hartline and Clemons first because we want them more.
