Good column John. Take comfort in the fact that Dickens got paid by the word.

I've always tended to wince and/or chuckle when a coach leans too heavily on cliches. When Butch speaks, I listen.......and learn.

Adams should be an attorney. Nobody can say more with less content than him.

10 cents per column inch? Adams, your writing may have been worth that when you started out, but you are definitely overpaid if you're making that much now!

Actually, a pretty positive column from John, one of the few of his I have enjoyed. It was positive about Jones, just as I am very positive about Jones despite the 5-7. The future looks much brighter than it did a year ago anyway.
