    Iíll give Curtis a pass for not closing Borre in the primary international window for other leagues. If heís the player, thereís really not much alternative... it was always going to be this way.

    Good call. I think this guy has a lot of potential but only gets a fraction of the hype of our other prospects. Heís not the fastest but he is very skilled. Once he fills out he could become a good...

    That was a joke. He might as well have said there was ďno soul foodĒ and ďbad cableĒ . It was on that sort of level.

    Hires look fine. Strikes me as odd they donít have a least one local in the mix. Youíd think you might want someone with that perspective if weíre going full blown youth development and all.
