Honestly, I could see that kind of crap really hurting a coach's reputation with his players. Everyone there is extremely competitive and I'm sure it must be pretty galling to see the coach play favorites and dress an inferior lineup.
Yeah. I mean Bieksa is obviously a lot better player at this point, but it highlights how unfairly Ballard has been treated. And it's dumb because Ballard clearly isn't a player that responds to this kind of treatment. Three years is long enough to make that determination.
