Barrin Simpson is demanding a trade from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and he states that he doesn't have a personality conflict with Kelly, BUT, the story in the Globe and mail tells us why:
Barrin Simpson says his desire to be traded from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers stems not from a personality conflict with head coach Mike Kelly, but from a respectful disagreement over what Kelly and defensive co-ordinator Mark Nelson want to do with their linebacking unit.
This is just proof that Kelly is not listening to his player's, they wanna play different schemes then Kelly and Nelson want to play, when your best MLB wants out, you know that he doesn't agree with the play calling, Kelly is just being a stubborn SOB. He is not listening to the TEAM LEADER (Simpson), he is not taking advice from his player's on the Defensive side of the ball.
This spells the end for Simpson, i would hate to see him leave and i believe that they should FIRE KELLY A.S.A.P. why? who's next on the Defensive side of the ball that wants out, seems as though Kelly and the Player's are not seeing eye to eye on MANY subjects.
Now i understand why certain player's were not playing to there potential, if CLOWN KELLY remains coach and Simpson get's traded, the rest of the team will not play to there potential.
Kelly gave up the offensive Cordinator job, just proves that "he knows he is not a great coach". Kelly will lose the respect of all the player's and us (the fans) , and if Simpson get's traded, alot of player's will not be happy.
Keep Barrin Simpson and Get rid of Kelly and the defensive coach, that would be the smart thing for Bauer to do, but is Bauer too blind to notice Kelly is crapping the bed as a coach and his Ego is getting in the way of WINNING.
