Richards having Torterella's back is insurance for the coach. It's a boss with one of his star employees, someone vital to an organization, who will vouch for him and go down with him. Torterella scratching Richards risks bruising Brad's ego and if Brad turns on Torts that's gonna be bad news. Torts is tough but he's not stupid enough to risk his job. Richards may be slumping but it's my feeling that he holds a lot of power in this organization and Torts isn't going to commit professional suicide. It's political but that's the reality of it.
