Michael Robinson, a "former" Seattle Seahawks player, a friend of SM's is talking. Would this supposed friend really go on a broadcast and share all this inflammatory information about Allen without McCloughan's okay? I don't think so. That is not much of a friend. And I have to say this - If I were an active player, even if I liked Scot I would not say a word. Anonymous or not. Anonymity has a way of becoming public knowledge in this day and age. You just can't take the risk.
On the other hand If what Robinson is sharing is untrue, that he is in fact lying, it could easily be said that Bruce Allen or the Skin's organization owes itself to sue him and Scot McCloughan for defamation of character. I mean those are inflammatory accusations that could damage the Skins ability to attract a decent GM from coming to the Skins organization.
I think the truth is coming out some day. And I get what your saying but I think the article is true because of how this dumb ass organization has been run for the past 20 odd years. We have been run so poorly. If any of us had a business we ran like this we would have been bankrupt by now. We would not be bailed out by the NFL and royalties. There has been so much gossip, utter bull****, piss poor decisions in terms of personnel year in and year out with this team and I was finally thinking the last two years we seemed respectable for the first time in a long time. And that was in part because of Scot. I thought wow Danny finally grew up. And you know what I think we all want the story to be untrue but it fits our history of an organization run by a fan boy who can't get out of his own way. And fan boy #2 Bruce Allen who either does his bidding or is as big of jackass at times who simply makes the situation even worse.
I love the Redskins and I will never stop being a fan but it has been a gut wrenching experience with this team for way too long.
