from a Bucs fan

I listened to the entire 3 parts of the video conference with Blank and McKay ... and the thing that struck me the most is Blank saying he wants to bring the Lombardi trophy to Atlanta during his tenure ... we have been spoiled here in Tampa with a great owner like the Glazer Family, but I gotta say, I admire Arthur Blank and I think you have a great owner

I don't remember him saying anything truly negative, disrespectful or hateful about Michael Vick, and nothing too insulting towards Petrino ... I think he's handled both these situations with class, dignity and as much restraint as he can muster

of course, I don't know a lot about the guy, but my initial impressions are he is an owner any major sports organization would love to have ... maybe I'm comparing him to a couple of our previous worst owners, Culverhouse of the Bucs and Namoli of the Rays ... but seeing the guy objectively from a distance, I think you guys have a pretty good owner

I remember seeing a show about Blank and his community contributions, not only in Atlanta but in other places ... some town in Montana or someplace out west where he vacations at some ranch and he contributed something to that place, and the town itself, so it could continue

and I still admire and respect Dunn, who does great community work too

I gotta feel sorry for you guys, the worst season anyone could imagine ... I hope our game this week is at least somewhat competitve, with no injuries, and a clean victory for the Bucs ... I know your team will rally somewhat to prove Petrino a bad coach, or whatever ... and I really think Blank will truly invest to bring you that Lombardi trophy in the future ... but maybe with a new GM ... best luck to you after this week

Class is always appreciated, thanx for your words.

Arthur Blank and the entire Falcons organization and fans deserved more honesty from the HC than the cowardly Petrino turned out to do. The stench of his legacy will permeate the stadium for awhile. He deserves to roll in the mud with the HOGS!

Been a tough year as Tampa has also seen through the previous years

Blank's heart is in the right place. He just needs to make better hiring decisions.

Thanks for the cheer up. Alot of our divison rival's fans (Pariticullary Saints fans) have been kicking us while we are down and taking great glee at our misery. I also hope for a clean game (and a Falcons win ;)) and Good luck to you guys in the Playoffs. Show the world that the NFC south can still bring a punch or two to the party.
