He (Burke) basically stole millions of dollars from his employer to line the pockets of his friend (Wilson)
you can't have a lame duck coach.
i have zero problem with the extension. it was fair (1 year) and it was deserved (arguably).
its more of an issue if you're Washington and turfing Boudreau.
if you want to pick apart the firing, i wouldn't include the extension as an issue.
Why can't you have a lame duck coach?
You make that statement...but what are the consequences?
If Wilson hadn't been given an extension...would the team have unraveled down the stretch and miss the playoffs yet again?
We'll have to disagree that it was deserved
Winning 4 of 5 games in December shouldn't be enough to warrant an extension for a coach who has never qualified for the postseason during his 4 years with the team
did you see where they were in the standings? He totally deserved the extension.
