"If we were losing close games you could blame the injuries," one Bull said. "But this?"
— So now we have anonymous players ripping VDN in the press. [This is exactly right, though I suppose such a statement isn't all regarding VDN. But point differential matters, and even when healthy they weren't good enough, and they're not just losing now but getting absolutely destroyed. I still don't think VDN is fired this soon. Hollinger mentions that they have a big homestand coming up, but the next 3 games include Boston and L.A....so there's still plenty of room for more torches to be lit, and I don't think the Org. respects the fanbase enough to worry if they're upset already. -ed]
