I wrote this about two weeks ago as people wanted some official clarification on what we thought about Mike Brown's "discount" purchases. I repeat the relevant passage assuming the PFT report on Pacman joining the Bengals is true:
Human nature is what it is. You will find pieces of shit in any profession. And those pieces of shit might have lots of talent at their job. All you can do is take calculated risks on these pieces of shit based on their risks and their rewards.
My problem with the Bengals is that they don't do any calculating. They just see a cheap piece of shit and drool. A low price does a lot to mitigate the downside, but not everything. How low would Pacman's price need to drop for you to be interested?
In case you can't tell from the tone, I meant that question about Pacman to be rhetorical. The league minimum doesn't go low enough to make Pacman a bargain for anyone.
