Whatever Mac, so you don't like the guy. Sit him for a game but shut the hell up about it, you don't need to publicly flog every player who gets on your bad side.
I will respectfully, agree to disagree here, sir. I think he's coming into his own. He needed a couple more years in the background and instead got 'baptism by fire'. His biggest mistakes have all been 'rookie' (Oops... or... Holy ****, what do I do now?) mistakes and he looks to be learning from them.
He's working at getting better with the media, but he also knows that there are a lot of knowledgeable (rabid) fans out here, who want to know his reasoning. He also knows that he walks a tightrope with the fans. Damned if he does... Damned if he doesn't. imho - He didn't dress him down. He just said what we all know and added:
"He's not the only guy, but
he's the guy who's drawn the short straw
. There are other changes to be made as well unless we get this thing turned around.''
That right there sounds like it was a TEAM way of deciding who gets flogged. I like that a lot. And, that pb view can be a good thing.
btw - I thought it was KLo who said that York "has the kind of break that you can play with..."
