Re: Could this not be DanO's fault???
I think this is a separate topic so I will keep it here rather than in a different thread.
We don't know WHAT influence Allen might have had. Obviously, he was in a position to have a tremendous amount. I am willing to give OBrien this year and evaluate him on what he does with Allen no longer around. But the moves had better improve dramatically and had better be more frequent if that is the case.
Everyone deserves a chance. Maybe not a long one, but at least a chance. I can see why Castenelli wouldn't throw him under the bus just yet. Remember, this is OBrien's first GM job. He has been learning on the job too.
