Once the players start to revolt, it's time to fire the coach. When someone is willing to give up control in their life of where they live and work to voice their displeasure, nothing short of them leaving or having the negative issue dealt with will resolve the teams problems.
Hell even Ethan Moreau wasn't busting his tail out there against LA. No one wants to work hard for someone that disrespects them and makes them do things that they don't want to do. If MacT wants to force employees into doing things that they don't want to do, he should become a pimp. A salt and pepper curly haired pimp with a hockey stick for a cane and some new bling to match his pink Cadillac.
Making a trade and then firing the coach is fruitless. Guys that have taken some serious flak from MacT could end up thriving under someone that believes in them and allows them to play their game. This list includes Penner, Nilsson, Garon, Brodziak, and Schremp.
Come on Katz, Tambellini, Lowe, whoever is running this mess, it's time for a change. We don't need anymore of this crap. We already have Cole, Visnovsky, and Strudwick as new faces. There is nowhere to go but up, but we won't go up until the organization gets down with the fact that MacT's got to go.
It's time to toss out the bad apple instead of once again throwing out the entire basket. A new coach is needed, even if Lowe has to come down from his high horse for a few games until a replacement is found.
Put this MacChicken out of its misery already LoKabellini!
