Herr Doktor Posted March 1, 2008 Share Posted March 1, 2008 Realistically, building a franchise is like building a house from the ground up. You first have to have blueprints. THis is your GM and Coaching staff. THey select the core players that will solidify the foundation of the team. Once the core has been brought in, and the foundation poured, you can begin building the team piece by piece into whatever form you wish. Every few years, you need to bring in new talent (overhauling the kitchen and bathrooms) to keep the team viable. You need to maintain the environment its in, or your neighborhood will be filled with malcontents and bad neighbors, in Falcon speak this is the quick fix ethos we always had-old F/A's with one good season left and being paid like they have a decade. ONce our team is made solid, and we have consistent seasons, we will be able to attract new players that will further enhance our team, make it more valuable, and better at fighting off the elements and maintaining its veracity and strength. CUrrently the Falcons are a shady duplex in an "established" part of town. But Blank brought in Dimitroff, McKay and Smith to flip this eye sore into a thing of beauty. But this flip will take several trying years. Here's hoping Mr Blank has the courage to stay the course. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
