    Yikes. Do you think Neil is even aware that 99% of the fanbase wants him gone? :bored:

    Apparently so because it was mentioned that he would rage about twitter.

    See they will interview some players. This step could be the determining factor?

    it doesn't make any sense to me because I can't believe, for a second, that Olshey would have the same interactions with players that he has with lower-level employees. To start with, he's been doling out millions and millions of dollars to players. Think that might impact a relationship?

    yeah, I though the same, I wonder if its just to offset enough negative? Unless they preface their interview that Neil's gone anyway so spill the beans. lol

    the only thing I can think of is maybe some of the players witnessed Olshey abusing employees. Otherwise, their opinions on Olshey don't seem germane to the invetigation

    Either he’s guilty or he’s not. There shouldn’t be a need for a deal either way. Either you fire him if he is, or don’t if he’s not.

    he should have been fired for being a lousy GM a few yrs ago and for sure last summer with Stotts, with these recent issues its a no brainer - just get him the fuck outta here

    Roster construction:

    Without Dame this team is OKC without potential/optimism.

    “Exceedingly smart?” Quick, at what? Everyone saw this mediocrity from a mile away — except Neil.

    The last time this fanbase brought signs and chanted for the firing of the GM?

    John Nash/Steve Patterson.

    Purgatory Neil is on that tier now.

    Bump!

    That game illustrated just how far this roster is from contending.

    Everyone sees it except Purgatory Neil.
