    "I know Jimmy Raye. I know him personally. And no disrespect to Jimmy, but he's no Alonzo Highsmith. He's not that guy.

    More telling is that Brian Gaine leaves -- takes a job at Buffalo, which is not a lateral move, it's a step down -- but in his mind Houston is such a dumpster fire he'd rather leave than stay here. That tells me more than anything else.

    So when Rick hires Jimmy Raye, Rick can't just hire him to Brian Gaine's position... he has to make it look like Brian left because we needed somebody better than Brian.

    Jimmy Raye is not better than Brian Gaine."

    "Rick Smith has a place in this league. He's very good at all administrative facets of being a GM... he's just not a good evaluator of talent."
    .

    Sums up the Gaine departure, Raye's job title nicely... as well as why O'Brien wanted to bring in a talent evaluator in some capacity.
    Photobucket has changed it's image hosting pricings, moving my $2/month plan to $480/year -- so most of the images I have posted here will revert to dead links sometime soon. There's no workaround other than replacing them one-by-one. So my posts the forums are going to look funky for a while. My apologies.
