This is the worst anti-Gainey argument of them all.
Gainey's never said he refuses to fire Carbo. The only evidence of this is that he hasn't, and god damnit, the guy was nominated for coach of the year last year and had us in 2nd in the East at the break.
I don't really like Carbo much myself, but honestly, only very recently could any rational argument be made for his dismissal.
There is absolutely no evidence that Gainey will never fire him, or will get fired himself before taking down the coach.
That's complete BS that's somehow filtered into accepted logic on this forum.
