He is pampering them with the positive pats on the back bs when a firm kick to the backside is needs.

I agree as well that there are too many players on this team with a silver spoon attitude. Hence win one game lose 3 games deal that we have been seeing through this season. I would make it a very miserable time for the players in general and crack the whip hard. As well, I would be putting names on the press box to those **** that don't understand the concept of work ethic. Yes, Mr. Whitney you can hug the popcorn machine for the remainder with your holier then though attitude. I would just tell him go home, don't let the door hit you on the way out buddy.
Agreed. 1-9 in their last 10. Pretty obvious that they've packed it in.

Player's coach or not, his job is to motivate the team. He hasn't been able to do that, and this year we can't blame it on not having enough character.

The problem with that is by buying Kruger more time, we'll likely miss out on Tippett and Ruff. Those are prime candidates, and we can't afford to pass them up.
