    Ellis on The Ticket
    ------------------------------------------

    They get into Ellis 'speaking his mind'. Pretty good interview.

    Thanks DCF!! VERY good listen. Really shows the bottom line, and that bottom line is this is a business. OBTW, a business that has a life expectancy of 3.8 years. I'm as guilty as anyone of forgetting that sometimes in my zeal for the Cowboys to win at all costs. In the end, Greg is just taking care of his business.

    If Ellis had explained it that way from the beginning 99% of us would have understood. You're right DC, that was a good interview.

    Good interview. But there wasn't any new info in it. All of this was public knowledge before the season--you just couldn't hear the info over all the caterwauling.

    I don't look at it that way at all. I understand how he looks at it, but it's completely inappropriate to go public with your gripes.

    Well what kind of businessmen are the New England Patriots?

    35+ LBs banging themselves around for the vet mininum.

    At least our owner rewards people that deserve it, and handles things on a personal level.

    Nah, it's a good leverage tool at times. If Owens didn't go public with his gripes, he's still be playing for the Eagles at well-below his worth. That's just talking-head rhetoric that most organizations like to employ because silence tends to work to their advantage.

    Is picketing completely inappropriate?

    It wouldn't have been construed as a gripe. When reporters asked when he would be able to play he could have said I'm still hurting but here's the real problem with me playing. It would have been received much better than the way it went down, with him making vague references to needing "a commitment" from the team. I, for one, never heard a thing about the insurance policy until the contract was modified.

    It's more business to some than others but in the end it's all business.
