Sorry if repost, but I didn't see it anywhere.....

The part of the paragraph that's bolded, I haven't ever heard anywhere but on Chiefsplanet. Is GoChiefs really Pat Kirwan?

:LOL:

Pat Kirwan

"Trent Green (http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/1599) has reached a conditional contract with the Dolphins, but the Chiefs and Miami can't agree on the conditions of the trade. Right now, the Dolphins are not meeting the conditions for a trade that the Chiefs want and it is possible that Green could still wind up in a Chiefs uniform this fall. But don't be surprised if the Chiefs eventually agree to a deal that has a number of conditions staggered over the 2007 season based on production. If Green reaches a number of landmarks during the 2007 season, the compensation would rise. Heck, if Green starts all 16 games, the team has a winning record, he throws for 3,000 yards and makes the Pro Bowl, the Dolphins should be happy to surrender a first-day pick, let alone the fifth- or sixth-round pick that is being reported. The Chiefs get criticized for not being proactive but the truth is the Dolphins are the party that has to raise the conditions of the trade. Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson only has to sit by and wait at this point."

is this the part you want me to dispute? I was trying to get it bumped without saying "Bump"

That's the wrong answer.

Because it doesn't take what's happening in Kansas City into consideration. This is becoming a distraction and it's silly to keep dragging this out.

Carl screwed up.

But it does take KC in consideration, give away something for nothing is not in the best interest of the chiefs. It's only a distraction here and in the media. Is Green staying and starting for us such a bad consulation prize?

No, it's indisputable. I find it funny and sad that you feel the need to bump your posts after 24 minutes of inactivity.

No, but I don't think that's a viable option.
Green is behaving like a scorned ex-girlfriend and I doubt seriously if that's going to change.

So the best thing is to keep your young football team in mind and try not to create a monster in the lockerroom because you're playing high-stakes Poker.

Peterson played his hand wrong.
At what point do you come to terms with that and take the conditional 6th they're offering?

I don't think the Chiefs should get shafted in this deal either, but if that's how the cards were played... What can you do?

What's "sad" is you think that word will influence me? You must live a hard life.....

I edited a few things in the OP, then did the bump, it was ready to be seen then. It so happens that Carlota posted a similar thread and it's getting all the talk, so what, I'll live / you're going to live / none of us are getting a band. I thought you were joking, so I joked back. Save your energy.

Two years from now after Trent Green announces his retirement. Except for a few, this off season will all be a vague memory.

yup and the draft pick we make next year will be on our team when that retirement is announced. I see nothing wrong with trying for more than a 6, or even a conditional 6 to a 5. Seems really low for a starting QB, IMO

Personally I thought that was the best line in the article. Could not agree with the sentiment more!

So basically you want CP to set the precedent of allowing a player to dictate to the team what it gets in trade compensation. That is what Trent is trying to do. He is trying to cause enough of a distraction that the Chiefs will cave to his demands. If CP allows TG to do this, he will just be opening the door for others on the team to do the exact same thing. CP should just wait it out. The only thing he has to lose is a 6th round pick that he never really had in the first place.

Peterson is still playing his cards and I am glad because, to this point, we have nothing to lose (the Dolphins have offered nothing of real value). Even if we eventually cut Trent at the last instant and get nothing it is still a good bet to wait. Seriously, who cares about a 6th round pick?

I agree. I'm not buying the whole "distraction" thing at this point. These things go on all the time, once the regular season starts no one is going to give a crap what happened in the off season.
