Bodes well? Not that you had anything positive to say.

Were you trying to generate excitement or resentment just prior to the 2008 NFL draft?

Chris Harry is like a dark cloud trying to descend over the Buccaneers by asking these negative spun questions. "Let's see, question #1, the set-up."

Joel Glazer gave his best positive replies to those questions. What did you expect him to say?

"Uh yeah, Chris, we really screwed up last season. Hope we don't win the division early this year and have to make that decision again. With your 20/20 hindsight we look as though we were trying to lose the Giants' game. Can we have a do-over?"

Chris:“Just the facts, Joel”.

"Oh yeah, sorry Chris, ticket prices and product? You weren't around during the Hugh Culverhouse years were you? TV blackouts for home games every year, fans with bags over their heads, large numbers of opponents' fans at home games,... those are facts."

"Big splash in free agency? Look at the list. We stocked the pantry with value. You don't remember McKay’s salary cap mess we had to clean up do you? Do you really want to go there?"

"Quarterback? Jeff? 38 years old and in the final year of his contract? Sounds about right to me. Jeff is great and we wish he was younger, but we still have depth at QB. Why don't you give me a list of all veteran QB's in the final year of their contracts so we know who we should target in free agency next year. And thanks for not asking about the cornerback position, it's a bit shakier."

May Buccaneer interviews with Chris Harry @ the Sentinel continue to be rare.
