    Corroborated testimony is evidence. I expect people to come out of the woodwork to corroborate his hostile work environment behavior.

    Buh-bye.

    So...testimony from someone he wasn't a dick to? That would prove nothing.

    There is such a thing as basic human decency. Unfortunately for five years the shithead in chief was cheered for being rude, crude, vicious, vulgar and hateful. Freedumb is doing and saying whatever you want without consequences or regard for others. Human decency is not weakness. It is respect for others.
    I just went to theater, first time in two years, saw My Fair Lady. Towards the end Liza Doolittle tells Henry Higgins "I'm a poor ignorant girl and you're a book learned gentleman but I am not dirt under your feet".
    Exactly.
    Tolerating abuse isn't strength. Saying you are not dirt is.

    I don't claim specific knowledge about Olshey and am not pronouncing him guilty. I am saying abuse is not part of a job description. Screaming, insults, name calling no more acceptable than hitting. Period.

    Evidence in sworn testimony in court is not required to terminate an employee for bad behavior or behavior detrimental to the organization. A few affidavits will suffice. If he wants to challenge the termination, his lawyer will work something out with Vulcan's lawyer.

    The investigation has to be clearly to avoid buying out his contract because they found something he didn't honor in it. With cause they can nullify his contract ...without, they have to buy him out.

    Maybe they did an evaluation and put him on a "work program". And his performance didn't improve.

    Of course it is. This is not a court case. It's an investigation.

    If the goal is merely making the playoffs, yes he succeeded. However, he inherited a team with one All Star and it is not known how much the decision to draft Lillard was his. At no time have any of those teams been serious contenders. With the arrogance he displays, one would think he would have a better track record.

    Same was true when he was with the Clippers.

    That's the thing about Olshey; most people would not even know there was an assistant general manager; he has never given credit to or acknowledged accomplishments by anyone in the organization.
