We are sure this has been brought up in the local, but since we are not there, indulge us: We loved the reaction that people had to the Loubardias firing (great move Sportsnet, by the way). Namely 'how dare people celebrate his getting fired. It was his dream job, blah blah blah'. We loved it, because most of these people railing against those who where making jokes about his firing are the same people who were celebrating when Sutter got fired, or when Keenan got fired, or when Kotalik got traded (ie: Pegula paying him to play in the AHL, ending his NHL career).
The thing is, these same people who were railing against are reaction to Loubardias getting fired actually thought Loubardias was doing a good job on play by play, so who even knows if they realize they were talking out of both sides of their mouth.
Listening to the radio here, some interesting conversation came up.
First, some background: The Diamondbacks are pretty close to leading their division. But they probably will not win the division with their current roster. San Francisco has crazy good pitching, and the Diamondbacks don't. If the Diamondbacks are going to really challenge, they are going to need to make a trade.
On the radio the locals (Arizona) were interviewing the Diamondbacks president. They were asking him about the team, and if the team was going to make a trade. You know what the president of the team said? (PARAPHRASE ALERT) "I don't make the trades, KT (Kevin Towers, the Diamondbacks GM) is the GM, we (the organization) trusts him, and if anyone can make a shrewd trade, it is him."
Wow! An organization that has clearly defined roles! Wouldn't it be nice, Flames fans?

The Flames are doing it wrong. Trust us. Go to some other sporting events, it becomes very apparent.

We know the Godfather mentioned it, but is anyone in the MSM going to say anything about the Flames bringing back the same roster that had no chance last year, well, minus Regehr, this year?

We have a pool to get to.
