If PATs, as rumored from a few good sources, want two 1st round picks, then why didn't BB/SP offer Branch a contract worthy of a player worth two 1st round picks? The only explanation I can come up is they let Branch go find a trade with no intention of letting him go unless they got absurd compensation. In other words unless they got an offer they just couldn't refuse. So if you are Branch and you get an offer for say 6.5M/yr for 6 years but PATs have made there demands so high no team will go for it, ...... how do you feel? I would be very very angry. Wouldn't you. I would think those guys are not just good business men they are rats. Even if Branch signs with PATs ... I just can't see how he is going to forget this ... and his attitude in the locker room would suck is my guess. Hey Branch didn't do right in my book but you expect the guy in the white hat to be the good guy and have a higher standard. Help me ... is there anyway to look at this that makes BB/SP look good or have they good too far in this thing?
