I’m Just Sayin: Dave DeGuglielmo’s Firing Means he was the Scapegoat.

The Patriots fired offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo on Monday night. Part of me can understand why…

I’m Just Sayin: Let’s Be Honest. David Blatt Got Screwed.

  The Cleveland Cavaliers fired head coach David Blatt yesterday a year and a half after they hired him to coach a rebuilding team. Cleveland hired Blatt before they signed Lebron James and traded for Kevin Love in the summer of 2014.
