They were also 3 points out while having played more games than everyone they were chasing
How did I spin the stats? I brought forward our ACTUAL record.

3 Wins, 7 losses, NOT PRECISE.
1 Win, 7 losses, FICTITIOUS.

So, how am I spinning the stats??

Ya, we were 3pts out of the POs, we were also close to 8th. Why do we have to look in one direction???
Bottom line is, POs were still reachable. That's a fact. No matter how skeptical you were of it happening, or how little you believe it possible, we were still very much in the running.

That's 3 wins in 10 games. Not to mention the blown leads in fantabulous Martin fashion.

The team was in 12th frigging place 3 points out of 8th and every team ahead of them had 2-3 games in hand.

These are all FACTS!
Yes, we won 3 of our last 10. We also gather 4 extra points, which means we had 10pts in last 10gp, so .500. Keep that pace up, with a hot streak at a certain point, and things can be on the upswing.
Does this mean we were in a super great position? Nobody ever argued it.
Were we going to make the POs? No way of knowing, but the possibility was there.

If the injuries are true for RC, then shouldn't people give credit to Martin for how the team performed under the crap storm around the injuries he had to deal with over the past two years?? He had to deal with them just as much as RC, if not more, and he managed to keep the boat afloat, unlike RC.

I don't care much about this debate. It's pretty clear which of the two is the worse.
But there's no point in trying to make the other appear worse than he actually was.
