How do you think people felt about him as Leafs coach?
It is funny because Pat Quinn got in to it with the media at times but he was never really pegged as the villan in the media like Wilson is.
I loved Quinn behind the bench....brilliant!
I think a large part of Wilson's failure is that he is not a likeable guy.
Part of coaching is you either need to be liked or respected.
Ron is Meh to both.
I would love to meet Pat Quinn.
If Ron Wilson walked past my house I wouldn't even bother to wave as he walked by.
Funny that a guy like Wilson would choose to even get in to coaching in the 1st place.
Doesn't seem to fit the mold.
Not a good communicator and is put off by the media covering his team....nice combo.
