    No, it's the team that didn't pay him more than he was worth. The team he signed with didn't pay him that much either

      That's the thing. If a guy is committed to testing the waters the only way to "lock him up" is blow up your salary structure and over-pay. I am sure for a figure like $ 240 or $250 K Willie would have been convinced to forego free agency. Is that worth it?

          If he allows Jefferson to walk because of money then he isnt off to a very good start in his GM career! You need star power to win and if we arnt paying the big money for a qb then there is no reason in hell that we cant offer maybe the best def. player in the league the money that will keep him here. If we want to go with a bunch of average Joe's then that is the kind of team we will have in the win department as well. Thats not acceppable in my books anyways!

            Damn. Now I don't know who to trust. If IMWT says Farhan is a liar, then I have to believe him. He's never lead me astray before.

But just like at Christmas time, you make choices based on what you can afford and what is available. Once you sign x player, another player or two falls off your list.
              Doesnt matter if someone signs or not, just communicating with a player or mentioning thier name publicly is not allowed.

              The noise that Carter has agreed to sign along with Eds past history says that this will be looked into.

                Possibly yes. But the league is a joke on this tampering thing.
                Waiting for the big ole splash...actually there was no big splash, just a peaceful ripple. Dammit, there was supposed to be a big ole splash!!

                  How the frick do you people think other teams can afford these guys but we cant? Are we playing with less of a cap then other teams?

                    Maybe we are going after a big name QB?

                    Anyone think that the Riders have been quiet because they have gotten in crap lots in the past few years that they don't want to risk tampering?

                        It's really only Hervey that makes a mess of it. Everyone else seems to know the unspoken rules. Xnay taknay on the tamper-nay.

                              I don't know if they can play in another league will playing in the AAF. The might have an out in their contracts, but I think they is for the NFL though.

                                I believe we are going after a big name QB. Whether that bears fruit is another story entirely.

                                Riders have been quiet but I think part of that is a certain bigmouth is no longer with the franchise.
