I have never been the biggest Dave Trembley fan, but I have to admit that I loved him going off last night after the Birds were swept by Seattle.
From the AP report as seen on ESPN.com
“I’ve been in a position where I’m a really nice fella and I’ll cover. I’ll get questions point blank and I feel like I’m a damn presidential press secretary sometimes instead of telling it what is it. I have to smooth it over,” Trembley said. “I’m not smoothing it over anymore.”
“The whole thing has gone totally different from what we want. It hasn’t been acceptable,” Trembley said. “I’m very patient but I will tell you the truth. I didn’t have anyone come up to me afterward and disagree with what I said.”
“I’m not going to let things continue to slide and say it’s OK. … I’m tired of that,” Trembley said. “I want to see the guys succeed. I’d like to get them back on track so they can enjoy that. You’re going to have to make some sacrifices and play some more as a team and do the things necessary in order for you to win. In order to do that you have to get your priorities straight. The priorities are the team.”
Do we even care to see any emotion out of Dave at this point?
