Frankly your attitude and what you write is pretty offensive and pointless. You made a comment earlier in the thread about people being internet tough guys, when it is in fact YOU who is try to force feed your opinion down peoples throats.
What would you expect him to say? Genuinely answer that. Anything other than what he said would have made him look like he was giving up to Cam without even fighting for it.
Have you ever heard of people competing for a jersey number? They might do this in kindergarten, but for professionals? Frankly Clausen was given it and unless he wants to give it up it's his. What difference would it make to Cam...? The reason some fringe players give up numbers to high priced vets and draftees is because it can often give them a little bit of cash in case they get cut.
Believe it or not, there isn't 'sides' like you claim, some people actually just want whats best for the team. Both these guys competing is what is.
I only respond, when people attack me but nice try. I don't taking cursing at me to easily. As far as his jersey question, I would have expected him to just say, "we'll see". Anyway just chill.
