    You have to have the right coach, and I don't think Cam is it. We have Bill over seeing the operations, Ireland as GM, and we need a coach that has what it takes to get us going in the right direction.

    Could be bro, but why make your first head coaching gig harder then it has to be?

    Just like DOM and Mularky and all their supporting staff was forced upon him as well... This is the thing that many don't know... CAM had NO control over the coaching staff that surrounded him... He was forced to accept it due to the money that was spent in the SABAN years to build it!!! I will challenge you right now... What coaching changes where made when CAM got here? If any, how many were his decision?

    See the point bro?

    Then why take the job if you don't have control of your coaches?

    Good question that I have NO answer to.... But being a business man, I would say that it was a step... Or a foot in the door....

    What really surprises me though is that there are SO MANY out here the just KNOW what is going to happen and that there are limited solutions to our problems once this and that happens... Seems to be ALL talk and NO ACTION!!!

    If you had any kind of balls you would bet that money on him still being the coach - peroid! I will guarantee that Cam will be gone by the start of next season.

    Well I also have a thread out there that says CAM will be the HC next year... It is a $5.00 bet if you wish to pursue it...

    The $500.00 is for those that are SO SURE CAM loses his job tonight...

    Bring it bro!!!

    I know you like Cam and back him strong, but this OC deal was a major gaff, and one that could have been avoided if not for Cam's arrogance or naiveness.
    He interviewed Ken Zampese for the OC position, but Zampese turned him down because Cam wanted to call the plays. I believe Cam said something to the effect of : I'll let someone else call the plays when the can do it better... Something to that effect. That's when I knew we were in trouble because we hired a Head Coach that was still thinking and operating like an OC, not to mention taking on way more than he could chew.
    BTW, Ken Zampese not only knows the offensive system, his father was basically one of its designers.

    Maybe Cam learns from too many rookie mistakes and becomes a great HC. Maybe not. I'll Parcells decide and be fine with whatever decision he makes. I do know that none of us outside football truly know if he has "it" or not.

    :lol:

    This was your game all along.
    You simply wanted to present false "proof" to your side of things based on citing that no one would take you up on some silly bet based on the timing of a possible event.
    It means nothing and it's why I wouldn't even address your "bet" side of this.

    You are assuming that we would have won with Ronnie Brown, when we were winless with him on the team. Thats pure speculation. If we had gotten it going on the ground, the teams with better coaches would have figured out another way to beat us, like they did all season. And the Washington and Jets games were no guarantee either.

    If we win two games next year and lose six games by three points or less, would you still be optimistic?

    FinintheMOON it seems that this time most people DID know what they were talking about, it bites when you get TOO ****y, especially about predictions. Well at least most of it goes for a good cause.

    No offense man....

    But you dont know about the person you are talking about. It was partly because of him that we have a forum to talk in. If there is anyone "good" for it...its him

    Ireland was clear that Cam was fired this morning.

    Anyone who thinks that Ken is not a man of his word has no clue about the man.

    The way the facts stand now:

    For the $5.00 bet, Ken pays

    For the $500.00 bet, Ken is owed.

    Wow, that seems to have worked out nicely for him. Did anyone actually commit to the $500 bet?

    Did I once mention anything about the British not knowing anything? I simply stated that I felt the source wasn't exactly reliable. It's no worse than when all the Miami fans were saying that the source wasn't reliable when Ricky was busted for pot and it was the story was broke by a newsteam out of Denver.... You're making me out to be something I'm not and I don't appreciate it.

    British rags dont support or give much coverage to NFL dolfan_uk. Thats why i read the US Florida papers online. British papers just guessed IMO because they followed the obvious road of Cam being sacked which any bog-standard British sports correspondent would do. I can do a better job reporting on the NFL that half of those idiots. After a 1-15 season it was too easy to make that judgement and put it in the papers. Oh yes and please stop upsetting some of the guys on here with your homer comments mate, we dont have an Empire any more. hehe :thumbup:

    Well it looks like I owe a few people some dough... No matter, it was all in good sport. If everyone that took my bet could send me a PM with your address, I will get it out in the mail to you...

    11 bets at $5.00. No one accepted the $500.00 bet. So I am out $55.00. I can't believe that the TUNA actually did it but oh well...

    Here is to building a sound foundation in 2008!
