    He signs - I love him...YES.

    He holds out then he sucks.

    That's the way it works for me.

    If he were back by next week,and stood at the 50 yard line and gave a heartwarming speech how how big of a #$#@ he was and that he is sorry and under no way in hell would he act that way again.Yes..But seeing as that won't happen..HELL NO

    Booing scenrio #2.....He signs but then doesn't play up to the amount of money he is now earning. Seriously, this is all about business. When the business part is over and he is on the field, no sense in booing if he is helping the Patriots win. The guy is not TO (at least not yet). As to "they did an ovation for TO in Dallas"? That's Dallas. I wouldn't want TO on my team and I don't care what that meant in extra losses. There is only so far my -want of winning over everything else- goes.

    Why does he deserve a standing O? His team mates have been sweating their azzes off for the past two months while he worries about how he's gonna feed his family on $6 Million a year...No way!

    It all depends on what happens today. Up until now, I consider it business and I consider his agent as not giviing him the right advise.

    However, if there is no trade and he does not report to the team, then I will never feel good about the guy again.

    I think he's proven that he's an arrogant little douchebag. I'll never like the guy personally. But you don't have to be Mr. Congeniality to help the team win. If he plays this season to the best of his ability, I'm ok with it.

    So what does everyone think of Dallas fans giving TO an O? He didn't holdout but it seems like he caused more stir than Branch has. If Branch was in Dallas in the same situation as here would they cheer him if he came back? Is it jsut that much of a different mentality? I heard they were supposedley tough fans down there.

    Is there possibly such a thing as a "Sarcastic" standing O? Maybe they were actually just making fun of "her". :rolleyes:

    The only reason I'd stand for Branch would be to take a piss.

    I can promise if he plays for the Jets then he'll be booed nicely in November.
