I'm amazed that this topic has gotten 3 different threads and people still don't understand the difference between giving Gilroy money as an UFA and not giving Dubinsky as much money as a RFA.
I think most everyone understands the difference. I suspect those supporting Dubi don't want to accept that as the reason for Sather playing hardball with a kid like Dubinsky.
It's an emotional topic and people often ride with their emotions on this.
Which is no different than the Dubi-haters and bashers who have been routinely denigrating Dubi's abilities and bashing the hell out of him. They're not exactly riding the sled of logic and mature reasoning; on this.
