I didn't say that. I said that I was being "condescending" (which I am not sure I was... but no matter) because he was showing that he preferred to keep things on the simple or easy level. If all someone is going to do is regurgitate a number or say, "Until we win there is nothing to talk about" then the question is, why are they in the "conversation" at all?
Today was a particularly rough day for me. I came to the realization that I am a fossil and that I don't fit in with this pseudo society that we have become.

I am 100% against the Raiders moving to LA. It is as simple as that. I have reasons that range from personal to what I see the team becoming if they move there. If you read the thread that the below is posted in, you know my reasons.
