Default Re: Arians says he was forced to retire

you can be as contrary about my comments as you want - the fact is - you can't apply a broad stroke to any employment situation - call it what you want - but "fired" is not a sexy word - it is the situation and being fired doesn't equate to a severance package in every single situation. Yes - his contract wasn't renewed - so in essence you can call him an intermittent employee - employed by contract for a duration of time - and they no longer wish to renew the contract.

As far as Ben is concerned - while as a fan I appreciate everything he's done to make the team a winner - this isn't the first time he's felt the need to voice his opinion towards/about a a coach and frankly because of his off field antics - from one fan's perspective he really should just say no comment and move on. I'm not going to go over Ben's history and boorish behavior. I just ask to take the homer blinders off - Ben is routinely a great player - but a jerk at the same time.
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
