Clearly those are signs of a coach happy with the performances in his lineup, right? Or maybe AV is as clueless and misinformed as I seem to be?
Why does AV keeping benching Booth? Did he have some blatant giveaways or what? I see him working his ass of in the first period and then he's suddenly benched.
