Gotta love the story about Mike Holmgren telling two rookie running backs that they can't have a pet lion.

From dictionary.reference.com;

journeyman: any experienced, competent but routine worker or performer.

From Google:

jour·ney·man
ˈjərnēmən/Submit
noun
a trained worker who is employed by someone else.
a worker or sports player who is reliable but not outstanding.
"a solid journeyman professional"

Kevin Gogan was a starter for two world champion Cowboy teams considered to have one of the better o-lines in history. He made the Pro Bowl for two other teams.

He also apparently has a better command of the language than Peter King, lead NFL writer for one of the largest media conglomerates in the world.

Malcolm Glazer's legacy is the destruction of one of the World's most iconic sporting brands in the name of making himself a bit richer. What he and his sons have done to Manchester United is a disgrace.

(not a United fan but do live in Manchester)

"Malcolm Glazer's legacy is the destruction of one of the World's most iconic sporting brands"

Yes, it is truly upsetting that since Glazer took ownership of Manchester United, this once beloved brand has descended into anonymity, with no worldwide following of note.

Oh, wait, hang on...

Of course they haven't completely disappeared but they are massively damaged and tarnished by the Glazer's involvement. Take a look at the financial situation that is entirely down to Glazer greed and incompetence. Keep trying to pretend otherwise and make puerile jokes, I am sure everyone is very impressed.

The Glazers have saddled ManU with enormous sums of debt that will undoubtedly endanger the future of the team. Do you think even the Yankees could survive as a winning franchise if they were stuck with $750 million in debt?
