Ross, foot in mouth, again

Steven Ross wrote:Yesterday, Ross revealed one of the reasons he’s running a franchise that has been a bit of a mess on the field, telling a crowd at the Palm Beach Civic Association: “After three years, if we haven’t made the playoffs, we’re looking for a new coach. That’s just the way it is. The fans want it.”

3 years? umm, Mr. Ross, you just signed a brand new HC to a 5 year contract.

And because the Palm Beach Post publishing comments which made him appear to be a reactionary billionaire who won’t give his new head coach a chance to learn on the job, he quickly tried to walk it back.

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, “associates” of Ross said he was speaking in broad NFL terms, not specific to the coach he just hired.

Of course, that’s an easy justification when you realize you said something short-sighted about the guy you just handed a five-year contract to.

why is it every time Ross talks, he then has to clarify it later so he doesn't sound like a complete idiot? too late, he's an idiot. a little advice, Steve, just don't talk about the football team you happen to own.

That's not even the sad part. The sad part is, Ross has twice proven he won't fire the coach even after three years of failure. So he's lying on top of everything else.

After three years if we haven't made the playoffs, I will extend the coach's contract to create a lame duck situation, and fire him midway into his fourth year, the Dolphin way.

Of course he has an out for the extension this time as it's a five-year deal.

Let's not forget this gem from yesterday which got overlooked:

http://phinphanatic.com/2016/02/16/dolphins-stephen-ross-calls-bully-gate-racist-based/

Yes, it was racism that motivated Pouncey and Jerry to participate in the "bullying" of Martin. No question, Mr. Ross. Rolling Eyes

Seriously, just keep the microphones away from him. I'm genuinely beginning to be concerned that we may be seeing the first signs of Alzheimer's.

Oh my God this guy is such a buffoon.  First, why is he even mentioning "Bullygate"?  And then, why the hell open up a can of worms by mentioning racism?  Why even go there years after the fact???   silent

From Hal's link.

When the league voted to allow the Rams to move to L.A. Ross told media members that “everyone was a winner”. When asked about about the fans in St. Louis, he responded, “Someone had to lose”.

Seriously, Ross??? SERIOUSLY?!?! (Facepalms.)

Unfortunately the NFL allowed Al Davis to keep owning the Raiders for at least a decade after he'd gone full-blown senile so we might be stuck with Ross for another 20 years Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Our only hope is that his senility affects his other businesses and he goes bankrupt and is forced to sell, like Victor Kiam.
