"Accountability: It's a favorite word of Sather's, one he wielded when he arrived as president and GM in the summer of 2000 and again when he began this season as coach. If you don't follow the rules, you're held accountable.

That morphed into: If you don't follow the rules, you're accountable to your teammates. "That's who you play for," Sather said recently."

Like I said, is anyone else getting good and tired of hearing how players are accountable only to each other? Is this the excuse for the ACCOUNTABILITY aspect that was promised, sworn to, and then not exercised? That, above all others, is the most galling thing to me about the Sather years. Horrible trades, completely idiot-level coaching, but the promise of accountability has disappeared completely. Is that because Sather just can't bench one of his high-priced acquisitions in favor of those who are not as priced and try harder?
