    Believe it or not, it was bad Karma to get rid of Torraye Braggs. The guy was hustling and playing effectively for this team. He filled in admirably for Mo Taylor when he was suspended. There was no reason that I know to cut him. Have you noticed how our record has plummeted since we decided to cut him. Cut Ameechia and keep Braggs, that would have been the sensible thing to do.

    You really don't want to cut a guy with a guaranteed contract.

    by the same logic, couldnt you also say that signing alton ford is bad karma? since ever since we signed him things have gone downhill.

    or how about road trips? long road trips are bad karma.
    so is california and the west coast. Or mo taylor? ever since he came back, its been bad karma. griffin getting sued is bad karma. amaechi getting his breast reduction surgery was bad karma.

    but dont blame turnovers or bad decision making, that happens a lot. my zodiac said that i would have challenges today, it was right.

    So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

    Does this go into the "10 day contract" issue where you can only have so many 10 day contracts in a row before you are forced to keep the player for the rest of the season?

    Unless you know what happened behind the door, you can not call it "bad karma". Braggs' contract was not garranteed. There is also some business considerations involved.
