    Be fair. A good whitewashing takes time. You have to wait for it to dry, then sand between coats. :dry:

    I think no matter what the complaint dept at human resources for the Blazers had to look into that Bert and Jody are loyal to Neil and probably don't want to scrap something they're working on right now ...could be trades, etc. It'll end with Neil being known as an asshole with earplugs but that'll just make the Blazers look more like the Knicks with Dolan. Olshey will probably be really snarky after all this if he keeps his job...he'd have been fired and paid off already if this was not the case...my 2 cents

    agree 100%. They've have exactly the guy they want in that job. It may change, but he was Pauls guy over probably some prominent others.
    The fact that's its been this long leads me to believe they didn't find much and that they could be as you say, working on something.

    They say that if a rat can get its head thru a hole it can squeeze the rest of itself thru.

    The more you know.

    So what happens if the investigation doesn't find anything? Can he not get fired? Worst case scenario.

    Human resources departments dictate that if you have coworkers or people involved in your workplace complain that first strike you probably must see a counselor once a week and report to the boss with progress...anger management stuff. If that doesn't work they go to phase 2 which is suspended for a period ...3rd phase is firing or keeping on staff feeling satisfied the terms have been met...they can fire him right now which tells me he's had a slap on the wrist and won't be fired. I'll bet he's going to anger management and they're dealing in house with this problem and never intended to fire him to begin with. I went through this as shop stewart of my union with OSEA....as president of the union chapter I had to hear grievances between coworkers and attend the whole deal.....was glad to step down from that position later

    Nothing going to happen with him. Just another off-season he’s going to screw up and then sugar coat it to the media

    This surprises me not at all (although really, what kind of comment could she make that wouldn't potentially end up backfiring?)

    I agree 100%. Did Quick think she was going stop and say "You know, I'm glad you blindsided me and asked, let me tell you exactly where we are in our investigation and why we may or may not fire our GM...."

    I’m glad she was in the building to witness this pathetic showing. Hopefully the axe falls soon.

    I think "right now" is important. I think that means that the team does plan on addressing the investigation at some point soon. Obviously she could have either said next to nothing like she did or said that the matter had been closed. I hold a glimmer of hope that the snake oil salesman is still fired before the trade deadline.

    I'd imagine that Quick has been trying to get follow up info or a progress report from the team for a week or two and this was his way of telling Jody and then tweeting to the fans that he's not just going to let this go away. I'm sure he didn't intend for this fly by question to illicit any immediate earth shattering news.
