At least LaCanfora comes out and posts specifics of what he's heard. 

 

This veiled teasing is a hedge.  "Something is up!"  "Uh oh, this might turn out interesting!".   Just put it out there already...

Yup.

Firing Whaley post HC search would be BANANAS.

Is it bananas if Monos was the one who actually picked McDermott?

This seems like speculative speculation. If I said what I actually thought about it,I'd catch a ban.

See. The message is clear.

Yes.  Bananas no matter what.  To come out and say Whaley specifically is spear heading the coaching search, hire a coach, fire Whaley and say jk Monos did it, is ridiculous.

Yes, that is frustrating, but unlike the useless LaConfoa, JW actually prefers to have actual verifiable sources before putting his name on a news item. I respect him for this.

Well he really can't back away from those---and that was the point of my post.

 

By hinting something is up but leaving it nebulous, you can claim exclusive content if something happens... and remain safe and mute when nothing does.

Do you think he doesn't have an actual and verifiable source when he tweets that?  He sure thinks he does, I bet.

Almost always, jw will double source something that is a scoop type story. You know, like a journalist does, er, did.

Lol. Well played. That is kind of the point. LAconjecture throws out everything he's heard no filter. JW filters and sometimes it's frustrating because of that prevents things like this.

Exactly. No doubt throwing the little tidbits out here and there helps create interest for an upcoming article - can't blame him for that - but he is always careful to be right before throwing out the story. For too many of these tweeters, the 140 characters is the story, with no need to go further. Sloppy, lazy, and all too accepted anymore.

What exactly is this thread about other than J La just posting more gibberish that needs some Cracker Jack decoder ring to decipher into another false story?

As was mentioned in another thread, if someone is calling to interview Monos for a GM position, I would help Whaley pack his office and walk him to the curb....

Reading between the lines, McDermott was a Monos guy. Pegula liked him. Whaley isn't a Tyrod guy. Pegula likes him. Pegula is wondering if maybe I should just turn this thing over to Monos and keep Tyrod?

Fire Whaley.

 

Promote Monos.

 

Hire Louis Riddick.

Do it, Pegs! Still not ideal but a HUGE improvement, addition by subtraction.

La Canfora is truly the worst. I can't believe he has a job with a sports division of a real network. That's not a good look for them.
