He is a better owner than most if Hartley stays on the team. Personally, I would have brought my GM into my office this morning and instructed him to buy Hartley tickets out of NOLA. With the stipulation that he never return.

Hmm, maybe I'm just bitter

Everyone here was screaming to get rid of Carney and put Hartley in. I really didn't understand the arguments either way but there you go! Mr.Benson was celebrating but realized it was no good, it took his wife a little longer and the look on her face was disheartening.

Red face Re: Benson makes yahoo frontpage

I remember back in '05 when the Giants played the Seahawks, their kicker at the time, Jay Feely, had kicked and missed a field goal. On the sidelines you saw Michael Strahan and future Saint Jeremy Shockey celebrating. Then, when the tone of the crowd shifted, they turn around and realized that Feely missed it and found themselves in one of those "Double-U-Tee-Eff" Moments.


"YEA, WE WON!! WE WON!!....."

"...WHAT THE...?" "What's the matter?" "That idiot kicker from Southlake Carroll missed, dagnabbit!! GET MORTON ANDERSEN ON SPEED-DIAL!!"

Not really sure why there's so much attention to this.

Alright, it was funny when I saw it, but I can also see how this happened. Depending on what side of the field he was watching on, it is difficult to tell whether or not the ball went through the uprights, and the refs took a second or two to actually call it.
