  1. “he’s not dealing with reality”

    “he doesn’t get it”

    He’s really talking about the players. They’re killing their golden goo$e over a false narrative. They’ll get it next season when the $eats are empty. They’ll really get it when player $alaries inevitably take a dive. Ignore the weasel sports analysts on TV & radio (other than Outkick & a few others). The fans will have the last say.

  2. Perfect metaphor for our country right now, the Corona bros are selling the “How can you open your business in the midst of COVID19! Everyone should stay in their homes indefinitely”. Meanwhile everyone that actually works for a living and supports themselves is saying back “I think you are a bit confused, no one is going to pay my electric bill, or put food on the table for my children”. Doesn’t get it indeed.
