But for me, I disagree with it. Time to move on already. It's been SEVEN years for God's sake... Besides, it's not like we've had trouble filling his position. Ghost is very good.
I get that and haved lived in NE my entire life (except for military travels, wars, ect)
NE fans that comment on the subject say "he" (AV) should have taken less money and stayed." ... WHAT?
A kicker makes nothing compared to everyone else and if he was the best kicker in the game (which he prob. was at that time) they should have paid him. But other players re-structured to stay and to your point, fans remember that. He was in a no win situation IMO.
Always defending the Company up here in NE... not lumping you ..in just voicing my dealing with the fans up here for 30+ years.
