I feel sorry for Torts but he had to know this might happen, especially after his use of salty language on TV.

When does Glen Sather take some blame and get canned?

Torts replacing Laviolette is such a lateral, uninspired move IMO.

Really classless of some of those reporters to call Torts a bully and a bad person who deserves to rot. Why? Because he didn't put up with your bullshit questions? I'm not gonna defend all of his coaching moves, but those are some real low blows. Criticize his results but lay off the cheap shots. Stuff like this really cheeses me about sports reporters.

What??! After all these years of him and every other coach out there doing it, WTF could he have possibly said that now, finally, was a last straw so ear-melting and child-corrupting it got him fired?? That's an epithet I need to add to my vocabulary pronto!

I have no factual data as a basis, but I'm gonna go with he got fired because of the team's disappointing performance in the reg. season and playoffs. Had they continued winning & gone to the Final, there's no G.D. M.F'in obscenity in the entire lexicon of the Urban Dictionary that would've gotten him canned, is there? Fined, maybe, but not fired

Which reminds me...why aren't they on a delay? I recall recently a PBP announcer having to apologize for one of the players yelling fuck on TV...

Top, my comment was directed at the media types who made a big deal about his language, and was sarcasm...I obviously should have used the sarcasm icon too make sure you got the point.
