I agree and disagree...I'm a bit torn. I think it's because I am an ROR fan that I want to believe he'll be here for the long haul.

But all the players who "forced the organization's" hand after Joe were shipped out. Historical Precedence is not on our (O'Reilly fans) side


There's only one thing I hate more than lying: skim milk, which is water that is lying about being milk.
