is more insightful, and cognitive then any thing you post.


you basically are saying the Rooneys are cheap and do not know how to run a team... This isn't madden.


when you bring something intelligent to the table, then you'll get more insightful posts, just like everyone else here at Steeler Fever gets.

Go Steelers!

Let me help you out here. The two statements do not assert the same
thing, but your inability to read and comprehend has you by the short
hairs, as it probably does in your attempt to earn as well. Not being
able to differentiate between two statements asserting varying
points is a problem. I never asserted the Rooneys "intentionally spend
too much" against the cap. That is full-blown retarded. They _do_ - as
was asserted - refuse to manage the cap in a way to create more space
under the cap. That is entire different than saying they "intentionally spend
too much."

If you aren't afraid to spend cash, you can find
cap space my using signing bonuses more frequently. Pgh has done a
little of that, but they could do more, but for some reason (take a guess)
choose not to use that technique as much as they could.

As long as they don't create too much cap space, they can use the
lack of cap space as an excuse to not spend as much, as, in this case,
for Plex. But, just keep living in your ad hominem world. It seems fitting
and quite appropriate for your level.

I would give you an ad hominem attack in response to yours, but it's just
not in accordance with my elevation. So, in the future, carefully peruse
assertions without making assumptions and your take will be far more
accurate.

I'm in the Burgh, TRICK



That's all this is. The only thing worse than a complete ignoramus is a condescending one who labors under the illusion that they possess some great intellect. Hint: you don't.

Can you blame him? He may be famous, but he just spent two years in jail and probably lost A LOT of his money. You can be broke and famous at the same time.

And I think $3 mil is very generous given his circumstances, in fact if the Rooneys paid more than that for him when we could have had a serviceable corner or OT for the same, or even a cheaper price, I'd be outraged.
