OK, sorry, now that I've gotten that little bit out of me, I do need to note that if this is true at all, and not the usual rumors and hogwash coming from the guys in puke orange, that it well and truly sucks to be Cinci right about now.
Stuck in a poo conference?
Losing the coach that made them relevant?
Losing their easier chance to jump ship?
Check, Check, and Check.
The only way this could get worse for Cinci is if they blow their next hire.
