OK, I actually started to feel sorry for Matt during that very well done video. I wondered how difficult it must be to be any member of his family. I think he's realized he's not very good at his trade, but he's also surrounded by cast who are making sure that his every flaw is exposed further. That includes an owner and a GM who continue to allow him to be forced to show the world that he's not as good as his peers. At $26M perhaps they can defend themselves, all of them, but in the end if SR was able to be determined to be not a good fit, and released, it seems like not letting Matt go after this many years is more insane.
I wonder if there are enough clips of Chunt, he's almost as elusive as a Sasquatch, to make one of these. January 11th 1970 was the last time this team hoisted the trophy....42 seasons ago. Only one name can be associated with that run of fail....HUNT! And the only name that can't be fired. That sucks!!!!!!! In a league with financial parity and a cap (with is part of financial parity), I wish the owners would agree to review each other for the privaledge to continue to own a team. IOW, no more dead owners who are just there for the huge sum of guaranteed money that just being an owner gets you. Then again, why would other owners who want to win care that a few don't and make their team's quest for a championship a less difficult?
So anyway, good work, but I just need to report that I did actually feel sorry for Matt at moments in that video. His wife, if she really loves Matt, has one hell of a difficult job when he walks through the door. What does she tell the kids (they have to be taking crap in school)? I'm sure their huge bank account can only go so far. Do Matt's kids and Manning's kids ever meet and play together? My God, that must be difficult. Yet they keep push their Dad back into the ring where any bully just beats on him again.
But know this, starting tomorrow night, unless the networks choose to run film on last month's breast cancer awareness events league-wide, this team is going to get hours of prime time spotlight coverage, and it should end with them getting their asses stomped by their former head coach. Maybe the networks will focus on the NASCAR chase and today's games and remind folks that "there's a game tonight too (of they've got nothing better to do)." And the Hunt clan will direct the Borg to focus on how they fired SR and now they've implemented putting players in in-game timeouts.
