So who benefits from publishing of the article?
Let's start with who doesn't win:
- Mike McCarthy
- Aaron Rodgers
- Ted Thompson
All have had their reputations sullied, their motivations and choices questioned.
Back to who wins:
- Tyler Dunne
- Whoever decided to clean house
Boys, perhaps you pay attention to who writes the stories more than I, but other than Bob McGinn, I really couldn't tell you who wrote what. The GB press coverage has traditionally been very supportive with little accountability. With this article, Dunne's name is being thrust into the national limelight, interviews on major sports outlets....he wins....its all about the clicks.
I am not saying he is lying, or exaggerating what his sources tell him, but I always question the motives of the discloser before buying the disclosure, whether its Tyler Dunne, Andrew Weissmann or Christopher Steele.
Which brings me to the other winner, Whoever decided to clean house.
Whether or not you believe facets of this article are true, it seems to me that this article sets the perfect tone for a fresh start.
- To the new staff it says:
- We have removed all pretense of loyalty to the last guy
- We are giving you a fresh start
- Don't get lazy
- A shot across the bow has been fired at your star player, now its your job to keep him in line
- To 12 its says:
- Mea Culpa, we get it, but
- If you care what people think about you, buckle down and cut the BS
I am looking forward to reading about OTA's, other player meetings, draft options, etc., and moving away from the past...Nevertheless
