No. I have not constructed cartoons of people.

Banner has a history. I use what has been reported of him. He has been called a "Little Napolean" and he is known to meddle.  Those are reports from several sources.

Lombardi's history is well known. He has to prove he's not what he's done now. 

And the sources you dismiss has been reporting Lombardi was in the picture for months now and...look, here he is.

Haslam is a complete unknown to me. Other than he made big bucks on fancy truck stops I know few facts about him. Which is why I'm laughing at people who tell me he's this that and t he other thing because they know as little as I do.

What I know is this man has bought this team, renamed the stadium for big money, lied to the media for weeks, and so did Banner, and decided to change the uniforms.

Now you and other can tell me you don't care about any of that, you just care about winning. Fine. If that's how you view it that's certainly your right to do that. 

But don't be trying to sell that this is what a winner does or a true businessman or any other crap that's been slung around here.

So far, as far as anyone can tell,Haslam isn't anything special.

G: Page 1- "The more I think about this the more untrustworthy Haslam becomes. I never did trust Banner once I heard the reports about him, but now I feel Haslam is pretty smarmy. Afterall, he sat there and listened to Banner say that to the assembled Cleveland media and the watching and listening fans."

G: Page 5 - "Haslam is a complete unknown to me. Other than he made big bucks on fancy truck stops I know few facts about him. Which is why I'm laughing at people who tell me he's this that and t he other thing because they know as little as I do."

MES: I'm starting to laugh, now. Page 1 you start thinking, and tell me he's untrustworthy. Based on reports of lying of course, but without trying to figure out the advantages of doing this, if it's even true. Then, page 5 you know as little as I know about the man.

If A is true (Gary doesnt know dick about Haslam), then B is also true (Gary's assumptions are biased and agenda driven).

As for Banner, the Little Napolean cartoon is interesting. If he played a strong role in the building of the Eagles, then doesn't it seem to make sense for him to wield power in his next job? Also, if he was a meddling, greedy bastard then why the hard feelings by all those still in PHI? In my experience the complete incompetents get all the back slaps and well wishes when they get promoted outside the company. Nobody is mad to see those types leave. See RAC. However, someone who is competent, but chooses to leave - why that person is treated like a high school girl who dumps her avg. joe boyfriend for the star QB, she's called a slut, dirty whore who really isn't all that hot. So, portions of the media has concerns, but it's not uniform. And the facts show that Banner has hired Chud, Turner, Horton, and Lombardi. Time will tell if this so called Lil Napoleon fits the cartoon.

Now a cartoon that needs acceptance is Randy Bonaparte. The only major difference is that the real Napoleon only got 15 million in his deal, while Randy got a billion. Napoleon was a better general, but Randy was a better negotiator.
