DDP: Well, there's this little passage I got memorized, Diamond Dallas 25:17. Sort of fits this occasion:
"The path of the bookerman is beset on all sides by the inequities of the talented, and the tyranny of workrate freaks. Blessed is he, who in the name of tradition and sports entertainment carries the stiffs through the matches of Nitro, for he is truly the workrate's keeper, and the finder of lost quality. And I will lay the smack down upon thee with great vengeance and furious roid rage those who attempt to outwrestle and expose my brothers. And you will know my name as the Bookerman, when I lay my catchphrase upon thee!"
I really want to hear how he explains this to the coach.
From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:
DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?
SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.
Football season is over for him. Their last game was last weekend. I am from Illniois, and I actually went out to that game in Tucson. The funny thing was, I saw Lavasseur's parents after the game, and it was all I could do to hold myself back from asking them, "Is Justin really a disgrace to you?" I guess if I asked them now, the answer would be a little different. Keep him out of our state!

I may be paraphrasing Cowher's response, but the one in the nfl.com story (nfl.com) seems a little...sanitized? (Did we cover this in an existing thread? I didn't look very hard. It probably deserves its own thread anyway) Oh, Romeo.
