Not that he needs my support, but Rayzor is one of the most consistently positive posters on this site. That doesn't mean he has to agree with everything.

If you ran the site, you would spend most of your time talking to yourself, and somehow I think you'd be okay with that.

funny how i was called one of the most blind homers for most the season.

Disagree. There was nothing unique about the support for Ron. Unless they are complete jerks, potentially outgoing coaches routinely receive a lot of support from their players, especially coming off a big win in the last game of the year.

I'm not trying to take anything away from Ron, but this was pretty typical.


Feel free to disagree, but if you watched the video and saw how the players reacted to Rivera and then saw all the tweets from the players today regarding the news that Rivera would be returning, you might think differently.

Zod I love this place.

Where else but the interwebz can fans of a team complain about the level of fandom needed to be a fan. I guess there needs to be some sort of manual or some such. So we all would know the rules on how to be a proper fan.

Nah. that wouldn't be any fun. Nevermind.

none of that means anything if they don't win next year. if they aren't playing lights out then all that was just a bunch of words and rivera's motivational skills will be shown as being insufficient.

they want to show their love for the coach? win games.

Oh I agree, I was just pointing out the fact that the team seems to gel really together off the field and with the coaching staff so that may be a reason for keeping Rivera because they (JR, whoever the hell is making decisions) feel that it is easier that Rivera can learn to actually coach the team as good as he controls the emotional/continuity side of the team.

You usually are a blind homer.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Yes, I watched the video, and I follow the same guys on Twitter, so I saw those too.

My point wasn't that Rivera didn't have support. My point was that support for an embattled coach, especially when you end the year on a winning streak, isn't anything unusual.

Just recently, look at the support Raheem Morris got in Tampa Bay. You had players openly questioning him being replaced with Schiano, to the extent that a couple of them had to be shipped out of town. The support of players is nice and it's heartwarming, but that isn't enough if you aren't a good coach (and I'm speaking hypothetically; not saying Rivera isn't a good coach).
