Wish him a happy 65th birthday from us
Thats sounds super!
Now write yourself a Xmas Bonus!
theyre trying to do my guy neil dirty
Just being able to come on here and read all these well thought out, educated takes is a “bonus” unto itself FAMS.
He may be trying to save his job by convincing Bert & Jody that he can masterplan a franchise move to Seattle.
A. Fire Olshey
B. Olshey swings a deal for Simmons and stays
B. is the correct answer
Both are very positive outcomes and A. does not preclude Olshey's replacement from landing Simmons. The fact is that A. is far far more likely than B. That being said, you're right if Olshey showed the flexibility and competence to get us Simmons, him staying a little longer wouldn't be a bad thing.
A and only A cause Simmons isn't the answer
The most positive answer is that he swings a deal for Simmons and then gets fired. But I don't think he can swing a deal for Simmons, so we're still in A.
We know he will work all his angles.
Games like the one we just saw makes me really hope that on Monday the team's new CEO Dewayne Hankins calls a news conference and announces that due to the investigation or maybe just due to philosophical differences, Neil is gone. Right now I just have to hold onto that hope because I've got to believe that whoever Hankins would name as Olshey's temporary or permanent replacement would have some ideas on how to make this roster better. (I do not apologize for the redundancy of this message)
It seems like Neil may hold onto his job due to cause, but then will likely be let go for being an asshat and poor roster construction. The Blazers will have to pay out the rest of his contract almost guaranteeing the Blazers make moves to get under the cap this year so they receive tax revenue from other teams rather than having to pay it. That will help offset the cost of Neil for 'poor' Jody.
I dont see that as being a negative. Trade CJ for the right 2 or 3 smaller contracts - (getting under the cap) - and I think you have a better TEAM
I need CJ traded now. Last night was unforgivable. Not just on the last play, but the whole game. He looked like a child with smoker's lung trying to keep up with Gods on the court. The defense was perhaps the worst I had ever seen.
Damn. One more day with Olshey.
But oh, those summer nights....
