While it may not be the media's job to lynch anybody it certainly is their job to ask some tough questions once and a while and stick with them, don't accept the cookie cutter answers. As a Tommies fan I would like to know what is hell is going on? Is Eagles reign going to last forever? Is he being held accountable by anyone? Who are these people? Does someone at STU feel he is doing a good job? With less and less people showing up to watch the the 33rd best team (of 34) in the country, does anyone feel that people aren't paying attention?
I heard Randy Corey interview Erick Tremblay a few weeks back and he made him answer his question. He asked if he was coming back next year for his fifth year. Erick side stepped the question three times, Randy commented he hadn't answered the question and finally he came back with it depended on if they had a winning season, he wanted to win. Does anyone think for a minute that new recruits would like to have a chance to win? How is Eagles or any of his hacks going to offer this?
You media guys read these boards, follow Randy's example and get us some answers, it is your job, we buy your paper. If you want some questions, here are some for you to think about. Maybe some other Tommie fans have some as well.
As AD and Hockey coach, who do you answer to?
After 2 years and soon to be 3 years of missing the playoffs and progressively getting worse, do you think you portray a winning attitude to people?
Since you were coach of the year your rookie season, you have had a very slanted losing record, does this work for you personally?
Mike you always talk about working harder, have you ever, ever, ever, ever given any thought to working smarter? Do you know how? Are you capable of working smarter?
Do you actually care that you have almost single handedly taken a perennial winner in the late 90's and early 2000's to the bottom of the barrel?
It gets worse and worse and worse. People still care but nobody is listening to us. Mike Eagles, Jack Drover, what's the difference?
Coach Eagles/A.D. is "WAY IN OVER HIS HEAD" and has been for most of his tenure;he has managed to turn off just about EVERYBODY in the Fredericton hockey world who recognized early that a non academically,non administratively trained leader would eventually self implode,which by anybody's standard has already occured in spades,an event that has been missed by those eagle eyed administrators at STU as Coach/A.D. Eagles further disintegrates personally.......it is and has been beyond his ability to repair and as he has refused the suggestion that he commit HARI KARI,then it is time that he be asked to "WALK THE PLANK".
It has been for years that Eagles has rejected wellmeaninged advice as "interference from alumnae" which he has no intention of allowing himself to be bullied by,what kind of perverted thinking ? is this that? any alumnae would not have any such intention but it is how Eagles thinks and just another reason why he has to be removed.
Allowing him to continue and spearhead the recouvery just makes absolutly no sense.
It is time that administration acknowledge their error with this appointment and get on with getting a new order in place,
