I think that we can see this coming although I think Marcel will be a good Gm in this league. I think that he may have burned too many bridges with players that are now gone. Other players(free agents) may look at the treatment that others got and decide not to sign here fearing the same treatment.
Its obvious that his "style" isnt what was expected by Bob and Scott Mitchell. SOMETHING he did must have really not sat well with them... im sure we wont know the truth but i dont think this is strictly a performance issue.
if they're planning on firing Marcel, they'd better have someone waiting AT that presser to be announced as the new GM, who is either endorsing Taafe as his head coach for 2008 OR making the announcement that someone else is taking over the reins as head coach
If one of Marcel or Taffe had to go, I'm glad it's Marcel. Because if you really look at it, the biggest problem this year could be attributed to a roster full of rookies. Especially the experience of our recievers. I assume that is Marcel's fault above anyone else's.
Just axe the GM and the Coach. Starting over is no big deal. We are basically starting from scratch anyway. I am sure our good players will be kept by the new people in charge. I find it funny that some people say Taaffe is a good coach. What exactly are you basing that on anyway?
