Mediator...forgive me for asking this but I haven't been around these boards for about 3 years...since the old DPO fell apart...and so I'm unaware of what certain people in here do or who they know etc...but I get the impression from things you say that you have some kind of inside knowledge of the team, it's players, coaches, inner front office workings etc...
If that is what you are claiming, please tell me in some kind of discreet way without getting yourself in trouble how you obtain this info. I'm not exactly saying I don't believe you because I don't know you, but then again, I find it difficult to believe that unless you are a very close personal friend of someone on the team, a relative or perhaps an ex-player or coach that you'd know something like that. If you are one of those things, that doesn't sound like the kind of information that the team would appreciate circulating on the internet. Coaches don't make a habbit of broadcasting things like that to just anyone; at least the smart ones usually don't. There are exceptions I guess. Parcells publicly called Terry Glenn "she" for example, but that doesn't seem to be Shanahan's style. Calling a player soft or intimating that he is a wuss in some kind of pulbic way to me would be about the worst thing a coach could do. You might as well cut that guy because I doubt he'll ever let go of that or live it down.
So if you don't mind, give me some kind of idea about how you get inside information, and second, if you are legitimately privy to inside stuff...don't you think you have some kind of ethical obligation to keep what you hear private? That's a question I can't get around, hence my urge to ask it.
