    Bongo got a lot of his predictions right - outlandish or not.

    Remember he only reports rumours and stuff he hears - a fair bit of that will stay in the realm of fancy because some rumours are untrue and others, though true at the time, never eventuate into reality.

    To be honest it is not surprising to see that he has been nabbed by DD - he is a great source of insider information which seemed lost to the sensibilities of many posters here, who spent a lot of time attacking him.

    A lot of his predictions right? I'll leave that alone...

    I have no problem with bongo nor his information- in fact I love it as much as the next person- as long as he presents it as unfiltered...

    When he starts going into spiteful, "I told you so mode," I am obviously one who gets turned off by that.

    I like Coles but he's only a clear #1 on the Jets. There are 10, 15 or even more guys that I'd rather have than him. Coles is excellent but he'd be a #2 on most other teams in the NFL.

    +1.

    I really hope people dont lump Coles, and Kendall together. Coles is asking for a big new contract at the age of 30 and is starting to remind me of wayne Chrebet.

    I think the sooner you realize bongo is a regular poster who probably has some good insider information, but blows it waaaay out of proportion, the better he is to understand.

    The way I see it is it would be absolutely impossible to make up all these stuff for years now.

    IMO Theres so much going around right now that the majority of rumors and trade talks just dont go through. I mean you even hear the GM's say that theres tons of ideas being bounced around.

    And with that you have to totally understand that half those rumors are intentially sent out to the public on purpose by the teams, and the agents.

    it is what it is. when he posts it it is like wow. when he's right its great and he can thump his chest. when he's wrong we can't forget to call it like it is.

    it's like that with everyone.

    but the louder they call it, the louder is the call-out.

    no biggie. bongo is just another cool guy around here.

    he's what chicory is to coffee. some people don't drink coffee without the sh!t.

    Bottom Line:

    I would hate to lose bongo as a poster on JI. I always like to hear what he has to say.

    That's a fair enough comment; he has got [I]some[/I] predictions right, but as you imply he has got a lot wrong - for the reasons I said in my previous post.

    I think most of the longer term posters here know what Bongo does and how he gets his information - I'm glad that we have at least access to what he hears via DD.

    I thought you were tied to the DD guys as well? Bit and Rigs are your mates?

    I agree with this. If nothing else he sparks great speculation and conversation.

    Coles is barely going to hang on to a number 2 position the way he is going. The health concerns are really alarming, IMO.

    As far as his medical info, he has been right on. I look forward to his posts- he adds much to the board in my opinion.
