Casey Fired

Recommended Posts

I'm a little surprised at the timing, since the first few weeks of the month they were really hot, but what could he have done about KG's suspension or the Double OT loss without Garnett. The Atlanta game is indefensible. I think management didn't like the inconsistency. His substitution patterns were a little baffling. He wasn't a bad coach, but he didn't set the world on fire either. At least they played good defense and got something from Blount. Some nights Blount looks like an all-star.

I think they wanted to fire him earlier but couldn't find any justification. They probably always wanted Wittman. Oh well, it isn't the Wolves time and it probably won't be for a long time.

Do yourselves a favor and watch the Suns. I caught their game on Sunday vs. Garnettless Wolves...What a fun group to watch. If I had the NBA League pass, I'd be watching ever game. They will win teh championship this year.

So when is Taylor going to pull his head out of the sand and fire the one guy who really, really, really needs it?? He has had long enough to put a winning team on the court and has proved over and over again he is incapable of doing so. FIRE MCHALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's obvious that they are pals and I bet Taylor is in between a rock and a hard place with McHale....

Maybe Whitmann will see no reason to play Troy Hudson. Casey at least cut his playing time.

I heard Barreiro on the way home and he was about to have a heart attack. He made some good points, he went off on McHale (and with good reason). Star Tribune had an instant poll, What is your reaction to Dwane Casey's firing?

Results, at time of posting:

I'm fine with it and Randy Wittman's hiring, 14%

This is wrong, Casey was doing a good job, 5%

The wolves should hire a high profile coach like Larry Brown, 10%

Kevin McHale is to blame, the wrong guy was fired, 70%

I can't believe how long this has gone on. The only worse GM in sports is Matt Millen.

McHale hasn't made a handful of good decisions since Taylor hired him. I think it's time for him to leave.

If McHale can fire Flip, then Taylor should be able to fire McHale. Is Taylor that naive that McHale is the constant in all the mess that the Wolves are in? Everyone else is gone except for him. He is like Matt Millen of the nba. If Glen is wondering who he could put into that spot he could use Hoiberg or go after Rex Chapman who was here last year. Wonder why he left? Maybe McHale thought Rex was a threat to his job. That would be one of the few things McHale would be correct. Maybe McHale should step down and he should call up Isaiah Thomas and they should run a team together. That would be the nba's version of tweedle dee and tweedle dumb. You have to feel for KG. How can he take this? I think everyone would be happy for KG if he is traded to a contender to win a championship.

you guys are right, they fired the wrong guy. They should of fired Matt Millen, wait McHale. Kevin McHale is the Matt Millen of football. I dont know who has run their team into the ground more between the 2. Oh well get a fresh guy in here to turn things around

Looking back on things, I guess they should have fired Casey earlier. Then we wouldn't have had those 20 of 32 wins holding us back from chasing down Oden or Durant. So much for Wittman's consistency and turning things around for those higher expectations in the front office.

Now with the 6th or 7th pick, they'll have to look things over a little more. McHale said he was going to be looking to make trades today, but what can you do with all those bloated contracts? See you all here a year from now with around the same record. Who knows if KG will be back.

      I just wrote to those five people. I am amazed at how I live in the South Haven area and yet every time I learn about these meetings after they happen. And they don’t understand why we feel they want us to stay off “their lake”.  Need to be more open and up front publicly about these meetings. As I have stated before in another forum, I have not fished Sylvia since this was implemented. Also I have not bought bait or boat gas in South Haven the last 2 years. I will spend my money where it is welcomed. I have been cleaning my boat at landings for years, plus power washing it when I get home. I am sure many good anglers/boaters do as well and for them to make us go through this inspection, which is out of the way and not even open 24 hours is rediculous. I am all for stopping the spread of AIS, but there needs to be better ways of doing a it than keeping the lake from all users.  We need everyone to get involved in this even if you don’t live near these lakes.  AIS is affecting us all but we need everyone to speak up about how it will be dealt with, or more lakes will be “closed” to the public with this inspection program.

      Ten Point what resort were you out of?  Thinking of going up this weekend.

      I haven't seen many yet. I did see a good number of pheasants on a drive to and from Pierz the other day though.

      My point was that I don't want ANY ethanol in an engine/motor that gets used for a while and then sits there - that's why I run ethanol free premium in them.  The ethanol sits there and gums up vital engine parts.  All of my irregular use engines are modern 4-strokes that run very smoothly and use a minimal amount of fuel and I'm going to do everything I can to keep them like that.  I use normal 87 or 89 octane unleaded in my truck because I use that almost every day all year round.

      Got 5 nice 12"ers to fill my special regulation lake limit.. Morning bite was as good as evening bite has been. Released another 7 smaller 10" class fish. Fished 545-700 am. Crappie minnows were the bait of choice today. 1 rod was all I could handle with these suicidal slabs. Had one snap my 4# test flourocarbon leader on the hookset.

      The issue with that is, the DNR strongly supports "AIS Prevention" such as these inspections. So I doubt the DNR will stop funding activities on lakes that are doing something they would like to see expanded.

      This is from a major marine engine maufacturer, YAMAHA, perhaps you have heard of them... "Not long after the introduction of E10 gasoline, boats using it began experiencing problems. Almost immediately mysterious substances began clogging fuel filters that were later identified as a byproduct of mixing fuel still in the tank containing *MTBE with ethanol-blended gasoline, but that was only a harbinger of things to come. Fuel lines approved for gasoline engines on boats reacted badly with the ethanol additive and started breaking down causing clogged filters; and in cases where the problem was not identified quickly, possible fuel leaks were the result. Any sludge deposits in older fuel tanks began dissolving and were pumped into the fuel system, damaging components and making a mess of filters. And boats with fiberglass fuel tanks were subject to the added nightmare of ethanol actually eating away the resin, which required replacement of the tank and in many cases, serious damage to expensive engine components like valves, carburetors and injectors." *MTBE was used to boost octane pre-ethanol. We won't even go into my opinion of damage I've personally seen in the last 20 years. But if you would like more direct quotes from big name industry leaders let me know.   As I stated before I won't comment or advise unless I have first hand knowledge on the subject... I know NOTHING about biodiesel. Until boats are powered by it, it doesn't even exist in my world. Sorry Bob, I got up early to slay some slab crappie, not research diesel issues. Crappies don't catch themselves!🎣😉

      This is from Chevron lubricants, released in August 2018, listing the 3 main problems with ethanol blends. "Phase Separation: Gasoline oxygenated with 10 percent ethanol is capable of dissolving far more water than conventional gasoline alone. When this gasoline, ethanol and water blend is cooled, both the water and some of the ethanol become insoluble. The result is that the fuel separates into two layers or phases: an upper gasoline layer and a lower, ethanol-rich water layer. The gasoline layer will have a lower octane number and may cause knocking. The fuel also is less combustible; an engine will not run on the water-ethanol layer.   Corrosion: When water finds its way into the fuel system and combines with air, corrosion of iron and other metallic surfaces can occur, potentially affecting fuel pumps, injectors, fuel tanks, and other metallic components, causing them to degrade and decreasing their useful life. Water resulting from phase separation can also cause rust or corrosion over time.   Deposits: When gasoline components react with the oxygen in the air, the result is the formation of peroxides or gums. Soluble gums can lead to engine deposits, and insoluble gums can plug fuel filters. Deposits can also form throughout an engine’s intake system, including the fuel injectors, carburetor, intake manifold, intake ports and intake valves. The result is a noticeable decrease in engine performance, power and fuel economy, while increasing emissions and drivability."

      Just got back from LOTW fishing for us was slow. But if you put the time in and watch your electronics it can still be good. We're fishing in 32ft lot of small fish just need to keep the hook away from them several good fish still coming thru. A few slot fish up to 26 1/2 inches walleyes 15 to 17 saugers 14 to 16 lot of water under the snow in spots.
