To the OP.
What do you want from Sather? Do you want him to publically state that he's a buffoon, has no idea what he is doing, doesn't have the pulse of the team?
I'm not sure what you are after here because if it's anything close to the above then you are going to remain disappointed.
Regardless of the extension, regardless of whether he had a birdy in the Org. feeding him info about the inner workings of the team from Coach down, regardless if it was players that provided him the basis for the firing, it was a move that HAD to be made. His system was flawed in design and approach. The breakout was predictable and never adjusted much. The offensive "scheme" was non-existant, The PP was getting worse by the year. In addition to ALL of that, Torts is an abbrasive personality that is and has been difficult to approach when you have a differing of opinion on style and approach.
I presonally felt that Sather should not have been the guy to lead the franchise out of the 05 lockout.
I also feel that some of the guys that run our draft should NOT be considered as replacements for Sather based on the passive players that have drafted amd acquired over the last few years.
If you are looking for Sather to commit career suicide, you are barking up the wrong tree.
IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
So I ask:
What is it exactly that you are looking for from Sather?
