C'mon, you're too good for this. In good conscience, how can you compare the transparency and eithics of senior executives of major companies vs. guys rooting for a team on a message board? You know much better than that.
I'm someone who actually likes RB but the lack of transperency from our organizatin (pre-RB too) is horrific. I can't imagine how and why they do it.
On a weird note, we protected Luke during the expansion draft and left Mendes unprotected. Kind of stinks, oh well.
Oh c'mon, if Red Bull came out and said anything more concrete, people would be up in arms about how either a) we hate them because they're lying sacks of shit, b) it was their fault so we're going to hate them because it's their fault, even though they were magnanimous enough to admit it, or c) we hate them because they're throwing a player under the bus...
It's a no win situation for them. Better off saving face for the player, and moving on. Just wish they could have pulled the band aid off a while back. I'll miss that short, bald little fucker.
