  4. Finally had a few minutes to try to expand on this a bit over in the ES Blog Please post your comments on the blog there, not in this thread before someone gets Jack Knifed Powerbombed. Thanks.
  5. It was the mid 1990's. In the then WWF (now WWE) Razor Ramon aka Scott Hall and Diesel aka Kevin Nash had their contracts coming up for renewal. In those days, wrestling contracts weren't guaranteed. Guys were basically paid on a per show appearance. The bigger the show, like a WrestleMania, the bigger the payday. However, if you didn't land a match on that card you didn't get paid. As Scott Hall's contract was coming up he negotiated with the Number 2 wrestling company at the time, WCW. WCW was owned by Ted Turner whose goal was to displace Vince McManon's WWF at the top of the mountain. Turner had Eric Bischoff running WCW. Bischoff new he needed bigger named talent to make WCW look & grow bigger. Long story short, he started recruiting WWF wrestlers as their contracts were expiring & he started with Hall. Who then talked to his buddy Nash, telling him not only were the days he worked guaranteed but so was the money. The story goes they neither wanted to leave McManon but there was no way McManon could give them guaranteed money as it'd set a precedent to have to give guaranteed money contracts to his other big name talent. Until then guaranteed money was unheard of in pro wrestling. Hall & Nash essentially changed the business. Even though WCW is defunct, McManon now has his talent on guaranteed contracts. Cool story bro but what's this got to do with football? Well, if you're a casual fan, you most likely took the Bruce Allen statement at face value. However once you drill down a little bit into it you'll see its roughly $300,000 difference between their offer and Kirk playing on the tag the next two years. In his radio interview on 106.7 (Part 1 & Part 2) the next day Kirk commented that if you look around the League the Front Office contracts and the Coaching staff contracts are fully guaranteed and he'd like to see the players contracts fully guaranteed. Currently, playing on the Tag gives him that fully guaranteed contract. For a year. So with the Rules of the Tag, he can play on it for a total of three years for three separate guaranteed one year deals. IF Kirk can manage to accomplish a multi year fully guaranteed contract he'll change the business. Just like Hall & Nash did 20ish years ago.
  6. How do none of you daisies not have Tombstone on your lists?
  7. I think it's hilarious that every time 106.7 comes back from break they have AC/DC's Money Talks playing in the background. I'd rather have heard from McCarthy instead of Kirk.
  8. Kirk says has heard from teammates they're supportive Says all anyone really guaranteed is training camp. Everyone pretty much on a one year deal Puts decisions on his Faith Fan/media scrutiny- thinks one year deal takes pressure off to be perfect. Names off guys that they're depending on that are on one year deals. Says it's the norm not the exception on one year deals. Says players would like to see players contracts fully guaranteed sites FO & coach contracts are fully guaranteed --------- My god. He gonna be the Hall/Nash going to wcw & changing the business getting guys guaranteed money ---------- Has good relationship with Jay has better understanding how good Jay is since Jay been filling McVays role His best scenario is win games all the way to the top. Better he plays more $$$ comes his way knows it's all about winning. If he don't play well knows no one gonna want him back If Giants game ended differently he not sure if one pass would have changed things contract wise Is there a number that puts him at peace? Says probably not money doesn't run his life it's about right place Says guaranteed money & salary cap % you take up & length of contract is what matters Knows he didn't play well until Of end of 2015. Says you have to ignore production & evaluate on potential To many variables to know if he gets tagged next year. Says if tagged next year it means he played really really well No truth to out the door to chargers or 9ers. Says it may look like he's shopping around but he very well could end up back here. Says he in D.C. Until the lord tells him otherwise Respects Doug. Dan been real positive doesn't think Dan been involved wants see Dan win Dan a fun passionate guy wants to win for Dan & put a smile on his face Players don't look 4-5 years down the road. Players take it day to day. Wants to create a winning culture in D.C.
  9. Kirk- closer to deal then people think Almost sent a counter offer Felt more at peace waiting a year Wants more info on the organization/FO due to turnover Kirk Bruce talked over the weekend positive conversations Bruce went to him in michagen Says Tag rules defined the negotiations Made it simpler to not counter offer Believes he'll be here more then one season Always been his want to be a Redskin long term Ball in his court during season to play well Skins long term his first choice Said Bruce's statement was told to him before they did the release & he understood them getting the info out there & he was fine with it Understood team wanted to see more last year Says he could play 10 years on 1 year deals - gives him freedom on the other side (FA leverage) Thinks it was a fair offer says you can look at offer 2 different ways due to Tag rules. Puts it on the deadline says wants more time -alludes back to All the turnover Wants more information on how the FO & coaching changes gonna work Grant gets a Kurt jab in Kirk no sells it Grant asks it again. Kirk says no that he's by it used to it from teachers & growing up. Grant goes in on it again Kirk says. It not a big issue with him with everything else he has to worry about
  10. Aight. Which one of you English guys was at the Ring Of Honor show that airs this week?
  11. Here's the thing. Bruce was brought in to get the new stadium deal done. The lease at FedEx isn't up for another 10 years. And Bruce is around 60-61 years old. So we're stuck with him at least 5 years after his retirement age.
  12. I thought it rhymed with "Did this really need to a thread"
