Any buffoon can see that this team isn't ready for a very complicated PP that is dependent on being mistake-free. If they were in a play-off race, would they be forcing this obviously unsuccessful strategy? I'd have to think no.

if this isn't the reason, then the man is a complete moron.

as for the practices. i think not having anything to play for, along with watching their management team leave them high and dry every year, has a bit to do with it.
