At some point though, i became convinced he was 100% shilling for pioli... he was the kind of spokesman for THE WAY, that pioli WISHES he was.
But he did atleast implicate pioli with "he wasnt going to take a job where he wasnt in control of every aspect, nothing was going to happen in that building without his ok".
Then he gets to Haley... "his roots werent based in the program, he wasnt buying in, wasnt the right marriage"... thats when i shut it off, every word screamed shill.
THAT is when i really decided that this was a sham, it had pioli favor call all over it... God forbid Haley not buy into this loser ass "program" that only exists in piolis mind, how dare he questions and ask for leeway.
Maybe i heard it wrong, been wrong before, but this time... i doubt it... this was the interview pioli WISHES he could've given.
It's all nonsense anyway. Lombardi IS a Pioli mouthpiece and this was a defense article masquerading as something else.
The team isn't struggling because Haley didn't buy into the 'Patriot way'. The 'patriot way' is an excuse for Pioli to fire him when he really fired him because Haley defiantly stood up against his bullying.
