Players knew to take it wide on him and were going to score, or draw a penalty. Look at the players that scored highlight reel goals on Bicks, Matt Hunwick looked like a Norris candidate because Bicks repeatedly telegraphs what he is going to do, and bites first doing it.
Good summary. Looks like exactly what happened. When he was burned by Vitale it was the beginning of the end. The hate around here exploded.
