i'm being a bit of an ass because i don't buy it. first of all, teams just don't fold like a cheap tent when their captain is out. also, we know there were other viable candidates. GR reported that many players expected weiss to be named C.

there are times i've made the same argument about criticizing coaches (especially on technical issues) but here, i think he's vulnerable.
