I don't think the Vela data is very telling. So it goes. He's a good blogger, though, and at least defends his opinion. If you want damning, for my money, Newbury's "As of today Dallas has $90 million committed to 10 players" line is a lot more indicative of the problem than Vela's two-thirds-of-a-league-chart-from-an-arbitrary-time-period-that-leads-to-no-conclusion-at-all does.
What is the record of this team, not some other team over the last sixteen years?
That always seems to be the proposition people leave out when they make excuses because someone else is doing something or not doing something.
Poor drafting, mistakes made after signing players to too much money and getting away from the draft.
There is a distinct equation here as to why THIS TEAM has been sucking eggs.
What other teams are doing or not doing, there is empirical evidence that this team has made one poor decision after another.
When will you admit that without a caveat and with conviction? No dancing.
Because there are simple reasons why Dallas has been also-rans.
Further, note in my original comment in this thread that I stated they could just about take all those comments, including the 90 million dollar comment, and go find posters who have been saying this over the last two years in one form or another.
Most of those posters have been earmarked as negative.
