Until I see names of the individuals making these statements I don't put much credence in them.  And the statement that this player probably won't be here next year tells me alot.

Truths:
1.  Never have an argument with an idiot.  They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with their experience.
2.  For some it would be better if they remained silent and be thought a fool than to speak and erase all doubt.

Who knows how true the story is, tales grow exponentially with every passing, but generally where there's smoke, there's fire...

But the main part I read was the player didn't expect to be back next year. So, maybe some sour grapes there. Most people generally burn a few bridges on their way out the door.

That depends on who's behind the smoke and what their intention is in sending up the smoke (ala "the Glazers will be selling the team").

A friend of mine owns an establishment that is frequented by several of the Bucs. A verteran player was recently in there talking to him, and basically said that things won't change until Gruden is gone. My friend asked him why, and his answer was plain and simple, the players don't trust him. He said how do you play for someone you can't trust. This player also figures he won't be kept around next year. Don't know what the validity is coming from this player, but I would say it's at least note worthy. This is apparently not a personal problem either as he says most guys in the lockeroom feel this way.

I know where he is coming from as I just left a company because I constantly was catching my boss in lies and I didn't want to put up with it anymore. You can't work under someone you don't trust.

When did Keyshawn get back to Tampa?

Maybe we can get the Tampa Tribune to confirm this. What a joke.

I didn't know Ira Kaufman had a retail establishment.

Or where there is smoke, there is a crack pipe burning...
