True indeed. I think you were about as patient and forgiving towards him as anyone could be reasonably expected to be, for longer than most could, and he was still a constant ass to you. He really is a drain on an otherwise great forum.

Or block me if you'd rather. I don't mind. Guido is going to stop harassing other posters here or he's going to leave. I don't care which one, but I'm on his ass until then. Bet on it.
Kind of like a hungry bulldog on a bone. Wuff,wuff!!

Thanks fry. Appreciate the nice words. I try (sometimes fail) to be civil. I donít like having bad vibes with anyone...even Guido.

Jeff Ireland leaves, it's done...

We've only got two other good scouts as the rest are nepotistic hires (sons, relatives of coaches, etc) without a complete understanding of scouting...

All the more reason to give him the GM title. Loomis has never been a player personnel man. He's the number cruncher, a vitally important role, but not your traditional GM.

Underhill expects Dennis Allen to stay with the Saints.

He's run off a few posters (Flipx99 comes to mind).

I abhor ugliness.

While he's proven himself as a good playcaller on occasion, there may be doubts as to how that would translate to head coaching responsibilities. DA took over as interim head coach when Payton was out with COVID.
