Exactly - I don't know what it is Erod but I agree with just about every post you make.
Anyhow, there are two kinds of guys in sports - those who need a pat on the back and those who need a kick in the *** and Spencer has always needed a kick and even admitted dogging it a couple years ago.
Bottom line is you can't trust him with a long term deal. Franchise him and keep him guessing until he retires. It's his only motivator.
