Probably Not The Last Time, Either

Sez Jim Bowden:
The first time I had to cut a player, it went ... poorly. It was 1986 and I was an assistant director of player development and scouting for Pittsburgh. I told the player in question he was going to be unconditionally released.

The player looked at me kind of funny, jumped over the desk and punched me.
