Torts has earned some leeway after last year. But I wouldn't be surprised if its less rope than most believe. Torts ability to be abrasive probably doesn't mesh well with Sathers ego. Just conjecture of course, but I could see those types of issues with management being a problem.
Good point on Torts.

Sather will retire and we'll win the Cup a year or two after and everyone will say 'Slats set us up!'
