This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

I believe in cases like this, he does by El Kabong
Mort is an Armstrong client. When he writes about other Armstrong clients, he's even more careful than usual.
When Mort reported this originally, it was out of the blue. There were no stories that ND was going to fire Kelly, the NFL hiring season was over a month away, and there was absolutely no urgency or relevancy to any rumor that Brian Kelly would strongly consider NFL offers...
...unless you're Brian Kelly, you want out of ND because it's not turning out to be the easy stepping stone you thought it was going to be, you've pissed off plenty of people from the AD on down, and you want out. So you float to an NFL reporter who happens to share your agent a poorly-disguised open message to the NFL ownership.
