UPDATED: Several people have pointed out that none of these people are new. If so, the same goes for Ralph as went for Cagle — this is just a lame effort to get media attention and nothing more.
Come on guys, let’s do something real to get attention.
By the way, given that some of these guys have been supporters for a while (Ben Hinson being one), an email correspondent ponders whether this is Ralph’s way of getting these people to stay tight.
