Default Early Mutiny In Miami

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...tiny-in-miami/

From Florio:

Quote:
Losing 59-10 at any level of football leaves a mark. In Miami, it’s sparking a mutiny.

Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, multiple Dolphins players contacted their agents after Sunday’s season-opening blowout loss and directed them to attempt to engineer trades elsewhere. The players believe that the coaching staff, despite claiming that they intend to try to win, aren’t serious about competing and winning and by all appearances have bought into the notion that the Dolphins will take their lumps now in the hopes of laying the foundation via high draft picks for building a successful team later.

Coach Brian Flores consistently has denied an intention to tank, but the first rule of Tank Club is never talk about Tank Club.

And even if Flores insists that there’s no tanking, that doesn’t keep the players from: (1) believing it’s happening, based on the trade that sent tackle Laremy Tunsil and receiver Kenny Still to Houston eight days ago; and (2) wanting to be no part of it.
The Fins are tanking for Tua or possibly lounging for Lawrence.

The discussion led to this conversation on another site:

A: “Can you imagine suffering permanent and debilitating brain damage to support a team that did not want to win?”

B: "Yes. I used to be a registered Republican."

Guys aren't risking brain damage to win. They are doing it for the paycheck. Every one of those guys can whisper mutiny to the media but they'll keep cashing checks until the season ends and they go somewhere else.

How is it tanking if one just accepts the offer of a deal that they can't refuse ?
