You can't tell me with a straight face that the guy likes Cassel and is backing him.
Boss man I want to soooooooooooo believe D. All the above, as you said BUT their is a huge "tell" here why he stays with Cassel.
Answer- Haley's firing. Haley was never a Cassel fan from the get go and by the end of 2010 Haley was emotionally and mentally done with Cassel and Pioli knew it. Thus you have the 2011 strained relationship between Haley and Pioli. And when Cassel got hurt Palko was Haley's middle finger to Pioli as someone suggested here on the board which I thoroughly agree with.
IMHO Pioli is just playing poker here.
