welp, everyone is creating threads, I dont want to feel left out. I think carolina got full of themselves after the first 2 games. While that may win a few games, it wont win a championship. I wonder if Rivera is allowing this team to regress, so he can empty the cup of their egos and fill it with determination to win his way. Also, I wonder if its a msg being sent to the owner that if you want to win games you have to play your best players, regardless of whose feelings you hurt by doing it. Its obvious Rivera did not agree with Hardy being forced to take a leave with pay. flame away now but yeah I'm drinking heavily after that disaster and prolly wont care.
