Of course homer is going to say it is a dead issue. what else he is he going to say at this point? they need AA help? He was the one 6 months ago who said it has been addressed or they had concerns, something to that effect. He doesnt want to relive it now.
Have there been recent pics/stories (not that made up crap) in the papers recently? Any pictures, stories, or innuendoes I've seen are at least two or more years old.

Partway through a hockey season, when your previous coach never ran more than 45 minute practices does require getting into better/different shape when you have one whose system is based on high energy, puck pursuit and true relentlessness. It's no different than any job where your manager/supervisor changes - they bring a different approach to the job and you have to get up to speed, either physically or mentally. Why are the players, and Richards particularly, being slammed for this?
