I've dealt with Dino for six years here in Portland and he was never an eloquent speaker, but with that being said people got the message. He has this way of getting blood from a stone and every player that I've ever spoke too would give every once of their being for him or at least die trying.
Yeah, this is great stuff, we've been missing a guy like this.
FWIW I wasn't knocking the guy. It was in reference to some strange comments on this forum regarding Tallon's body language at the Dineen presser. Tallon isn't very comfortable in front of the cameras.
Tallon isn't an eloquent speaker by any means (which is why Santos usually does the PR talking), but I think people get his message too. I think he & Dineen will work very well together.
Oh... I know it wasn't a knock on Dineen. Dino is a lot like Tallon. I think that's why Florida is the perfect job. Media coverage isn't front page like other markets so he can blend into the area. He's a really strong family guy and I think the fact that Tallon is the GM played a role in his decision to take the job.
He'll drive ya nuts with his lingo and leave you asking "What the hell did he say?" But, his actions will leave no questions about what he's doing.
