    actually, it is up to Fisher. Let's assume that Bud Adams is a HUGE meddler... calls three times a week, asks for little projects... let's say Reynaldo Hill's aunt is Bud's housekeeper and Nick Harper ex-wife has a thing for Bud or whatever... let's just PRETEND Bud has all these external motivations and is the STEREOTYPICAL nightmare owner that Al Davis, Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder embody... the difference is Fisher never says anything about it.

    Have you noticed that Adams is the one who tilts his own hand that he meddles? Fisher doesn't complain about it. How many abused women are vocal about it? I realize I just compared Fisher to an abused woman but just THINK about it. Fisher is EXTREMELY tight lipped. Anyhow, it's just a theory, I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything here. I'm just trying to underscore a small possibility.

    lol... nice analogy :)

    i see your point.... guess we'll never know
    i just find it extremely hard to put bud in the same sentence as jerry jones and al davis unless we're talking grey hair or money.

    LOL! If Bud was on the other side of the VY coin these very same folks would be telling him to stay the hell out of it..

    hope your not implying im defending bud's "ruling" on VY... i honestly cant believe he basically has given the keys to him and made it a foregone conclusion that "he's our starter and gunna be paid a lot of money"... you dont handle an emplyee that way, period!

    Fisher has leaked out plenty on VY to media before the blow up. He even called him out for not throwing to randy moss in the redskin game ( funny doesnt matter when collins doesnt). Fisher controls the media here and leaks things all the time. He does get the tough questions here, because they are scared he wont give them interviews. Jeff will find other owners and the media much more difficult than this market.

    Adams has stuck by him for 17 years. I like how it is everyone else's fault except the man the runs the team top to bottom Jeff Fisher! Other than the young thing last year, this is all his players, his drafts, his coaches, his schemes, and his inability to adjust to other teams.

    Yesterday was a typical day at the office for coach!

    That's true but Fisher isn't biting the hand that feeds him either. That's my point. Fisher isn't throwing Adams under any proverbial bus. Vince Young on the other hand tells the Tennessean he would like a trade.
    unfortunately, you are correct on that count and that's why it's time for a change.

    What cracks me up about references to owners of football teams is that anyone expects them to act like normal people or even normal CEO's. Most of these guys are beyond freaking rich...their teams are like little trophies...they can sit them on the shelf or they can take them down and play with them...it's their choice. Who are any of us to tell them how much they should play or not play w/ their toy team, lol.

    Lol...if I owned a team, I'd be so Jerry Jones.

    I think Meddle Adams is a myth, at least based on what has been mentioned or known to the average fan.
    He's done a few things but putting in VY helped the team. Most of it stems from his treatment of Fisher and Young in their saga earlier this year and I personally think he was being a cooler head in the whole situation by trying to get them and the team to focus on the rest of the season rather than the blow up between them both.

    Drafting VY against the staff's draft wants might qualify as meddling.
