    I believe that the conclusion that Saffold would rather play LT is an entirely logical deduction. However, he has not spoken on the issue and, apart from being "unreachable," has not taken any "action."

    My beef with the article is that it attempts to bolster speculation with citations to unnamed sources. In my line of work, that's not allowed.

    Unfortunately this is journalism and not a court room, where being the first to report something is all that matters, even if you have to use wild assumptions, hearsay, and reading between the lines. Also, the more you can sensationalize something, the better it sells, even though you are killing accuracy. Accurate reporting? Who needs that? Not when you can just take random stabs at everything and get readers.

    I think that was a passage from "The End of Days."

    It hurts a team when a player holds out on them. But it seems that hopefully Saffold will accept his position as this could turn out to be good forhim!
    Happy New Year 2015!

    Objection. Calls for speculation.

    It's Av's fault....he started it.

    What you see is what you get, but what you see depends on where you stand.
