Re: Rusty? We had a bet

In response to RidingWithTheKingII's comment:
FIrst of all, on March 11th at 12:00 AM, they were not 20 million under at all. They were still over and behind in getting people to restructure on time or be in the same ballpark as the well managed teams who had lots of cap space ALREADY. The point is to be well managed, so you have your ducks in a row when FA opens on 3.12.
Your premise was based off how NY could easily clip 45 million dollars to get to 30 million under, because the Pats were about 26 million at the time. You then adjusted it to "between 20-30 million" to cover your butt. This was AFTER I took your bet. Your premise in the thread title itself was "30 million under". And, you chose that number specifically because it was more than you thought NE could get under. I know your game. I am clearly far more intelligent and can call out your agenda within milliseconds, which is why I challenged you the bet.
It's no differrent when I challenged you on the Thanksgiving Night bet when your favorite QB, Sanchez, tried to commit suicide in Brandon Moore's rectum. I forced you to bet the spread, straight, because it's you praising the Jets so continually here. Then, you tried to sneak in a supplementary part of the bet where Sanchez would throw for at "least 300 yards". I knew I could not control that part of it, and what's funny is, he was nowhere near 300 yards until garbage time, where he ended up throwing for 301 yards. I take special pleasure in rejecting your sneakiness in trying to find a way around our bet there, where it was 1 yard in a passing league and Sanchez got about 75 yards in garbage time. Yes. Yes I do. lol
But, back to the 2nd bet.....You were trying to sneakily showcase just how simple it would be, from year to year, to easily clip salaries and not have it effect how a team can maneuver in FA. My bet with you on this just proved how wrong you are. Mt Puuke, too. "It's so easy to just cut players and the go out and spend on others!"
Sure. Sure, RKrap and Mt Puuke.
Meanwhile, you're arrogantly on here DAILY babbling about "dead money" over and and over as BB puts on a FA clinic. Again.
Further, the NY Jets have resigned Calvin Pace to the vet minimum, signed some 3rd string RB named Mike Goodson, OL Willie Colon (who has sucked in Pitt the last 3 years), a NT on one leg trying to resurrect his career (Garay) and a crappy Safety named Dawan Landry, who the Jags didn't even want back.
No one wants Calvin Pace. He didn't play up to his contract in NY, which is so symobolic with what Tanenboob did as he destroyed the NY Jets so brilliantly. LOL
Everyone here, minus your dopey anti-BB allies, can see how fraudulent you look.
Also, if you are now trying to somewhat slither through this by saying "technically" you won, why in the other thread, just 15 hours ago, did you say "PS, I won our bet"...? There is no "technically". YOU LOST.
You lost the bet...COLD. Lost it. Outright.
They were restructuring people at the outset of FA, not in position to lure FAs, so they had to find players no one wants just to get a veteran body or two on the roster. That's not in any way competing with the Pats.
BB has future HOFers like Adrian Wilson racing into Foxborough to sign team friendly deals to play here.
You lost the bet technically and literally.
I said they COULD get to $30 under, which had zero to do with the PAts. I clearly laid it out how they could do it.
I bet that they would be $20-$30M under not sure how they would play the Tebiow situation and if Mangold was going to be restructured
It is clear as day that they were 22-23M under at 10:00 pm when they did the Cromartie restructure
The bet was never what the Jets roster would be after the resturcture, only that they could get under the cap significantly and sign free agents.
Further more, since I won the bet, now I could care less about the Jets. It is you that daily mentions the Jets, not I.
Good day to you as well, but I won the bet
