That was never said. You made that up. What was said was the following:
Dan Parr of PFW wrote:
Grimes, who underwent knee surgery in late November, missed four of the final five games of the regular season as he recovered from the procedure. He practiced on a limited basis two days prior to the Falcons' playoff loss to the Giants, though. The team was expecting him to suit up vs. the Giants, but he was added to the list of inactives the morning of the game and we hear some inside the organization were very surprised, and disappointed, that he didn't play.
But you interpreted that last bit as this:

When none of that was said. As then, you are still missing the context.
Miko Grimes posts that video 6 days before free agency begins. Grimes doesn't have a deal. Wouldn't your assumption be that there is a chance that he is not a Falcon if the team has basically had since the end of July in 2011 to sign him to a long term deal, and has not done so.
So if you're trying to write a caption for a youtube vid you're about to post, and in Miko's shoes, you "know" that hubby is going to back. But what you don't know is where. Because none of us really know what the Falcons plans are. I think even before this lil' fit, you probably would have said Grimes chances of coming back to Atlanta were at best 50/50.
So then wouldn't it make sense to ponder the question which team hubby is going to be playing for.
Some you guys are like Rams fans. You hated Brenda Warner so much that you had no problem running Kurt out of town. Tom Brady is an punk because he can't keep a muzzle on that Brazilian beeyotch of his after the Super Bowl right? I don't get this. What was she supposed to say?
She didn't say, "And he's definitely going to be a Falcon 4ever!" and now that means Grimes is unlikable?
Look, don't you have friends that have wives/girlfriends that you may not be the biggest fans of. I get that if/when that is the case, you might spend less time with that person. But are you going to end the friendship outright? Does that make the guy that has been your friend for 14 years unlikable?
Let's break this down. AND-for the record, you guys know I loved Grimes, and the only time I started 'not' liking him was after this was written:
"we hear some inside the organization were very surprised
, and disappointed
, that he didn't play"
Im not going to play 'the definition of IS' here. The 'context' in that report was clear. Now, maybe
the team Dr's examined Grimes the day of the playoff game, and benched him against Grime's 'wishes'. But if that were the case, I would have expected to hear more about it in that offseason, and I did not. I would have thought MightyMouthMiko would have had SOMETHING to say about this report:or his agent. BUt I heard nothing.
Then, we get the reports like Brent didn't show up after getting tagged right away in April http://blogs.ajc.com/atlanta-falcons-bl ... g-program/
“The workouts or phase one, will be voluntary and that’s something that we can’t control,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “Obviously, we’d like to have him in the building
, but those are voluntary.”
.....and then things aren't so 'rosy' during his rehab..That there seems to be a disconnect ( Dave Archer) . Grimes is not reporting in or using the facilities enough. Doesn't hang with the teammates and seems uninspired..I heard that on his show, so I cant post a link, but if you look at the OFMB you will see I'm not the only one who heard him say that. Strike Two.
Then, this YT vid. Strike THREE. Your out.
You got Dan Parr, DOL AND Dave Archer ALL reporting there may be 'something amiss' between the FO and Grimes. And for the record: it may all be hot air. Maybe Grimes didn't want to use what the Falcons were providing? That is his right: and he might even be smart to do that...BUt even if that were the case: why wouldn't he get on the radio, send an email or address these 'rumors'? Seems to me Miko doesn't seem to have a problem speaking out when she believes a media person is 'out to get her man' http://www.foxsportssouth.com/08/02/11/ ... kID=543617
“Im very passionate about my man yall so please forgive me for lettin him have it via twitter. But nobody (expletive) on my boo & gets away with it”.
Gee, you would think that someone thats 'passionate' would have SOMETHING to say about him sitting himself out. At least go on Twitter and call it as BS. I mean, she doesn't seem to have a problem doing that, right?
So, in THAT context, you don't find the 'wording' of Miko's text a little but unnerving?
"You hated Brenda Warner so much that you had no problem running Kurt out of town. Tom Brady is an punk because he can't keep a muzzle on that Brazilian beeyotch of his after the Super Bowl right? I don't get this. What was she supposed to say?"
well, nothing. BUt, did either of these women loudly complain about thier husbands $$$? Im pretty sure Brady's wife said nothing of his contract: she is 5x richer then he is right now. So those points dont stand.
"So then wouldn't it make sense to ponder the question which team hubby is going to be playing for."
No, it would not 'make sense'. It would actually not make sense to f*ck up his agents negotiations. Because, like it or not, 'Miko' has made herself part of the deal.
"Look, don't you have friends that have wives/girlfriends that you may not be the biggest fans of. I get that if/when that is the case, you might spend less time with that person. But are you going to end the friendship outright? Does that make the guy that has been your friend for 14 years unlikable?"
Well, first Grimes has not been here 14 years. And: this is a business, not 'friendship'. And yes, I have a couple friends who I have lost because of thier wives, and I wouldn;t be surprised if MY wife ran off a couple of my old undesirables as well. One of my best and dearest friends from high school married a superdevout SuperChristian, and I had to cut him loose. NO beers, no swearing, cant see him on friday or sunday, etc etc. You will find this out later when you get married Pudge
Look: Im not a caveman. I dont strut around the house saying 'that b*tch better not sass me tonight!'. In fact, my wife is smarter then me, and I give her leeway to make decisions for us most of the time, because most of the times: she is right. But, I am a talented guy. If I got a contract for my talents, and her social media was about to screw that up. I would put a stop to that.
There may be an 'I' in Miko and Grimes, but not in 'team'.
Now either two things are true: either there is a disconnect, and it's being reported, or guys like Dan Parr, Dave Archer and Jeff Schultz are towing the 'company line' in order to affect the negotiation process. Im going with the former, because it makes more sense to me.
I dont think Grimes will be here. And right now, thats fine by me.
