But that is exactly what you implied. You have a tendency to be over dramatic in a ton of your posts only to backtrack afterwards and say that's not what you meant when you get called out on it. This is a message board and I cannot read your mind except for what you post here. When you insinuate that kovy just short of extorted Lou or forced Lou into paying a reidiculous contract then you are coming off as being ridiculous.
No its not !! thats the thing you have your idea made already about what i mean cause in your mind im over dramatic. I telling you again youre exagerating.
Like i explained, the Kovy situation is certainly not a situation like Gomez where he was really "offered" that huge contract like the rangers did to take him away from us and then couldnt live up to it.
Now all im saying is that its not the case at all and thats what YOU said, thats its unfair to Kovy cause he was "offered" that contract...
Kovy's agent and Lou/JVB clearly worked together a LOT on that contract off frame works off kovy's demand of what he wanted. Now, thats absolutely NOT saying Kovy had a gun to Lou's head, kovy deserved the right to ask for a lot of money and he did. All i said is that it wasnt true that anything was "unfair to him" cause he was "offered" that big contract, cause clearly it wasnt simply "offered", he was hands on that whole thing the whole time.
On this one sorry but youre over dramatic and assuming stuff.
Edit: better way to put it is that its 2 things for a UFA to have a demand and for GMs to reach it. (Like Kovy, nothing wrong with that) And its another for a UFA to receive a crazy ovepayment offer to really make sure to get him. Like Leino or Gomez for example or a bunch of UFAs every summer.
You made it sound like the 2nd one. And its not by pointing that out that im implying that Kovy extorted Lou or wtv thats a very exagerated way of assuming things.
