I completely disagree Ren. There is plenty of goodwill towards this city throughout the league. Towards the franchise though - a different story. To change that you need talent, and you need that talent to amount to something.

And when it comes to the eternal barrier of this city simply being in a foreign country, that isn't going to change by any number of guys saying good things. Winning with talent will go a long way to making that stand out a lot less though.

Bayless was kissing ass pure and simple.
