    No, of course not, and that's not the point. The person of which I speak stated that anything less than ten wins would "prove" that DM was a bad hire. I had no problem with the "optimistic" prediction. My preseason prediction was 9-3, so we weren't in serious disagreement on that point. But, I felt then, as I feel now, that he was setting himself up to go medieval on DM, if and when ten wins did not materialize (which is still not a foregone conclusion). Also, as I believe you already know, that was not the only instance in which his assertions and subsequence responses were couched in an insulting, "smarter than thou tone."

    I've personally had enough of the self-congratulatory, hyper-negative, supercilious non-sense that guy throws out like so much chum in the water. He has a history of setting up straw men for the express purpose of inviting people to try and knock them down, and then arguing endlessly when they do. I was pissed when I wrote that response, and if my language and tone offended you, I am sorry. But the underlying essence of my little diatribe was, IMO, correct - and for that I do not apologize. If you want to get into the game of calling BS, that's okay too. The ignore button is still working the last I checked.
