50 posts in this topic

Did anyone see this article in the sport section this morning?? How in the (you know what) can this guy be named the top GM in sports?? The guy is aweful with the decision's he has made, heck look what he has done to the Wolves. They had Terry Ryan ranked like #53, he should be #1 while McHale is at the bottom of the list

It was a hugely flawed ranking system. First, it is based on your predecessor. McHale took over an expansion franchise, so of course his tenure will have a higher winning percentage than the previous. Secondly, it is based on wins per dollar. The team was only paying the luxury tax the two years we had Cassell and Sprewell. Every other year the had a pretty average payroll. McHale can give all his wins to Garnett and Flip. And since they had all those first round playoff exits they are scored high for even getting there and winning enough games in the regular season to do so on a modest payroll.

Hugely flawed system that doesn't penalize for his cheating with Joe Smith (and subsequent loss of draft picks for like, 50 years), free agent and trade decisions, and horrible draft history. Who do you turn to for basketball advice or rankings, Forbes or ESPN?

Pretty sure it was Glen Taylor who signed the Napkin in the Joe Smith debacle........how Mchale got us through that and a stones throw from the NBA TITLE I'll never know..... grin.gif

I know how the Detroit Loins fans feel. Mchale is the Matt Millen of the NBA.

Dont get me wrong Mchale as a player was great and he also has a great mind for the game. GM material he is not. Started strong with Garnett and Flip, but after that Garnett and Flip are the ones that produced the playoff and Mchale only made mistakes after that.

He traded Ray Allen and a 1st rounder for Stephon Marbury and passed on Richard Hamilton and Shawn Marion for Wally Serbeaik(spelling)

What really gets me is that he is listed 52 spots higher than one of the best GM's of all time Terry Ryan.

Just my opinion.

McHale is a terrible GM... its as simple as that. When you have a player like KG on the team, he's gonna keep you in contention but your never gonna get over that hump to a championship. The worst thing he did was not get players to support the big ticket. Mchale and a bullhead are very similar, NOBODY LIKES THEM!

PierBridge- You have got to be kidding me. I am huge McHale fan viewing him as a player and person, but as a GM he needs to go!! That list you were talking about..... Joe Smith( I know you blame Taylor, but a GM is responsible for all personel decisions), Sam Cassell for Marko "Worthless", firing Flip Saunders, Endi Ibi(don't know how to spell his name because I have only seen it in the paper once)....his problem is he always "thinks" we are one deal away from a title, when in reality everytime he makes a deal, we are one trade farther away from the title. Oh, I almost forgot Garnett, okay he made one great move.... would you still have your job if you made one great decision in 10 years????

This is insane! What about Troy Hudson he was the next T Mac until he got hurt I suppose thats McHales fault also?

I suppose you guy's would like Larry Brown or Jerry West well I'll tell you they ain't walking through Target Center anytime soon.

McHale it is!!!! he'll probably repeat next year then we will know for sure.

Troy Hudson the next T Mac? They are different position players, heights, athleticisms, etc. No way. But Pier, I'll give you this: After the wolves went to the Western Conference Finals and they knew Cassell was banged up (and Troy was supposed to be healthy for the full year), we needed a back up point and there wasn't much on the market. I'll admit I would have resigned him too. Same with all the players he resigned that summer. But eventually we found out it didn't work. If my decisions weren't working out for my employer, I think they would have gone in a new direction by now. It's been ten years. There are plenty of other people who would take a GM role.

Back to the Forbes thing-Billy King was ranked the third best GM. Ha ha ha. There's a guy who ruined a franchise, and he actually got his team to the finals one year.

Pierbridge,

Is Mchale your neighbor, friend, or a family member of some sort? I dont understand how your sopport of him can be so great when the only real thing he did was draft Garnett. Troy Hudson the next T-Mac come on. He is average at best.

Kevin Mchale needs to step down and bring on Fred.

      Thanks for sharing those pics ... really enjoyed that!!     Bob

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.
    • Muskies
      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser
