Boy, with a guy like Maciocia in charge, those coaches must feel really secure!
"It hasn’t come together for many different reasons,” Maciocia said. “Some of it’s player related. Some of it’s coaching related. In my opinion, the players are there."
Typical snake stuff. First he says it's a mix of issues: player and coach. But then he says he thinks the players are there ("in my opinion" lol -- you're the GM, Danny -- either they're there or they're not, but you should know either way). So really, it's a cowardly way to say that the players aren't the issue, the coaches are, which basically gets him off the hot seat.
If Herb gave a crap about being a journalist, he'd have pressed Maciocia on the lack of Canadian content and the lack of impact any of Maciocia's signings, apart from Coté. I mean, God, our linebackers are a in a pitiful state and we let Muamba go.
