Re: Clarification needed: What is building down the pipe?

Re: Clarification needed: What is building down the pipe? 


It may be true that the sum is greater than the parts, as Aristotle said. Or it may be true that the sum is less than the parts, as is often seen in the football world. Or it may be true that the sum will equal the parts, for whatever that means regarding Haslam and the Browns.

Many say they want to "build" something. Actions and results will reveal the sum or lack thereof. 

"Building down the pipe" can have several meanings, of course. Worst case, it may be a PR line that says "One of these days- down the pipeline- we'll be building up the middle- or down the pipe- by focusing on key players who make up the sum of our pipe. Yep, one of these days we'll do that. BTW- Give me your money before you go away and drift down the sewer pipe".

That's a cynical view. 

I get a mixed message- mostly a bad message- from what I've seen with Haslam. At least we have that so far. Unlike the unmixed message that the Lerners left behind them. But the future lies before us.

I agree with wags and think it means straight down the middle.

A term used in football and baseball.
