I never knew Rob Bradford was a fascist, until this week. Apparently I’m on a new schedule, folks, and the only ones who will suffer are you. The voices of the people are being squelched. From this point through the rest of the offseason, the d-bag mail bag will become a twice-a-month exercise, not the weekly conversation we’ve grown accustomed to. Thanks, Rob.
