I thought about PMs but I figure transparent is good.
Bball and Peck -
I went through and read some of the threads today, and I have to say I'm embarrassed by some of my posts this week. I've always tried to be a guy that focuses on the content and doesn't get into personal attacks, and I think I failed. I'm sorry. Some of it's stress because I'm trying to sell a house for the first time, but mostly it's just me being a jerk.
As far as the topic at hand, we're just going to have to agree to disagree (for now). We can pick up over the summer after I've moved and we have nothing to talk about. For the record, I strongly disagree with the idea that we'd have won a championship if we kept Dale. I strongly disagree with the idea that we should have done any more than we did to keep Mark. As much as I loved the 2000 team, I thought it had reached its peak and I felt it was time to move on.
So please accept this apology. I have nothing but respect for both of you, even though we hardly ever agree (although I tend to agree with Peck more than that nutball Jay). You guys are two of the top minds around here, and the place wouldn't be the same without your input. Thanks for putting up with me.
After tonight, I won't get a chance to post again until Sunday night. My wife and I will be up in the balcony if anybody wants to stop by... we're the tall ones.
In closing, just allow me to say...
