It's the morning after. And what we have on our hands is a classic case of he said/she said between our GM and our former-Manager. Personally, I am still trying to digest all the information out there as it comes out before I throw out more than my two cents. So, for now I'll post some of the best and most thought-provoking words from your National Media and blogs; where the consensus is that both players are at fault in some way or another.
