Gainey in fact took issue with Robinson's attitude towards Perron, then came around to his opinion. I smile when I hear Perron talking about 86 and constantly using I,I,I in describing the strategy.
I knew Lary was in there somewhere along with other vets like Green, but eventually it was when Gainey came around that all fell into place.
