At this point of a most miserable season, who really gives a rats a/z/z,i know Gordon doesn't, not when he stated 2 months ago," it doesn't matter, wins or losses, i just want to make sure they learn, and follow the system, thats real inspiring to the young players, isn't it? He leaves a lot to be desired as a "coach." Either the players are not interested in winning, or the system is to hard to learn, or they simply do not have any talent now or for next year with this bunch, i see only okposo showing any improvement, and maybe neilsen and they should go and sign danis to a contract, because DP is done, as damaged goods, and mcdonald is not as good, so its a no-brainer, imho

I posted that it was either/or, it was not a statement of fact, you failed to distinguish that fact!

(A) It was not "an either/or" because you had three "options" listed and not two.
(B) I dont think there was any reason to have that they were "not interested in winning" as one of the choices.
