I don't know, I think historically there have been two different Armies. As a rival GM you needed to be afraid of "Trader Doug". As an agent you LOVED being in conversations with "Contract Doug". There have been obvious exceptions to both, but whenever I hear that the Blues have made a trade I get excited, and when I hear they've made a signing I gulp. I took a look at Army's UFA signings after I wrote the bulk of this, and there weren't as many scary contracts as I thought, but Lehtera, Faulk, Steen, Berglund etc have left there scars. Having said that, Trader Doug has a knack for making making the more egregious problems go away.Turk Sanderson wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 10:12 amNever play poker with Army....Dave's a mess wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 9:58 amThis was from a Petro question in JR's recent mailbag:
Not looking great for the statue.One source said the Blues were offering a five-year deal that was closer to $7 million than $8 million.
The belief is that Pietrangelo is not happy with any of the offers he has received and he’s very disappointed in the way things have been handled.
...but whatever, the Blues won the Cup!!!!!
