Anyone who thinks this is personal between Gettleman and Smith is an idiot. This is business, pure and simple. It hurts because Smith is such a legend on this team, but he has clearly lost a step and for the sake of the long-term future this move had to be made.
The business side of the NFL is often ugly.
Other than parroting catchy terms you heard ESPN say every time a player is cut, please explain to me how parting with a talented player with no replacement and hurting yourself financially is viable "business" practice in this profession.
LOOK THATS JUST THE NATURE OF THE BEAST OKAY IT MAY NOT BE ADVANTAGEOUS IN ANY CAPACITY BUT IT MAKES ME FEEL COOL TO BE "RESERVED" AND STUFF.
