My point all along has been that Gandarillas is a stud(which USF denied). I think Wood is a stud also. But, if you claim Gandarillas is a role player, pretty much everybody on all my teams are nothing but role players.
Mike is taking his anti tanking stance to the next level. He thinks because I said you need to have a cornerstone that I advocated tanking for top picks. I am the one that is feeling the "brunt" of his bulldog agression right now, tomorrow it will be rangerup or death or anyone else who posts on here.
I dont take it personally. One because this is an internet forumn that I am using to pass the time at work, and 2 because Mike is a good owner who does a lot for the community. We see eye-to-eye on this we are both just too stubborn to admit it.
You can get franchise guys from IFA, or via trade, or from free agency. There is no doubt you can take a team full of 24th overall guys and win 88 games and make a run in the playoffs, but you are going to hit a wall more often than not, and not get to the overall goal, winning a championship, more often than not.
