One thing that I think you guys are failing to take into consideration though (despite many valid points) is that

1. People join in on a mob mentality, yours truly included.
2. The emotional and sentimental response after a loss and during a losing stretch combined with the under performing team in a season that may turn out to be a let down distorts what people would rationally say about Torts. He's won a cup, he's gotten 400 wins and he's built a group of defensively sound players here for years to come. So despite the hate around here for Torts, HFNYR thinks much higher of him than the comments lately seem to indicate, I hope.
3. Brian Boyle sucks.
