It makes me want to say - where is your head at you pack of spoiled brats? I can imagine Smyth looking at this thread and simply realizing for all the warmth during the good times - what was it worth?
You're right. It is distasteful. Dumping on Smyth for what was essentially a management failure (not going year-to-year on his contract) is pathetic.
I'm not a big supporter of how this fanbase tends to focus on what they're seeing rather than the machinations behind the product.
The Tambellini era was incredibly toxic. MacT will flush the turds, and Smyth will stick around to help this year.
