Wouldn't put it past the Cards front office to put this stupid shit in there and then recant. Which they did. Either way, I think the book on Kyler is still out there. I have much less faith in Kliff and the front office. Just fucking win and shut everyone up!!!
They knew perfectly well the reaction that clause would have. While I doubt it was done to embarrass Murray, it was probably pointed out to some in the media to send him a message, which is mission accomplished as far as Cards management is concerned.
