    Stephen Hart (who was our most successful coach in recent memory) didn't exactly have as stellar a resume as Floro who was a failure (at worst)  Some serious sexism (for lack of a better word) going on here about a guy who has been a pretty brilliant administrator in funneling young talent to his team uber quickly.
    Time for some of you cats to stop running around with your head cut off, exactly what good will that accomplish for the program.  The deed is done, get behind the new mastermind..

    So you're saying without knowing anything about his training or background that he lacks the facility to either learn or adapt to that?  How can a man ever coach a woman's team when he doesn't have a clue as to how 11 different player's menstrual cycles will affect them on a given day.  There, there's a ridiculous response for a ridiculous original premise.

    So are the CFL and NFL, NHL and CHL, some can adapt some can't.  It just seems most here have prejudged Herdman can't and that's ********.

    I can guarantee you he will go into that room for the first time with a long thought out plan to dispel the "woman's coach issue and tackle it head on and win the players over.  If he is successful at that, the sky's the limit.

    Seriously?  Friggin' seriously?  Was he a woman's coach before he coached women or just a coach?  Did his brain suddenly stop functioning and start degrading itself once he started coaching women.  Seriously lame.

    I have to say I am as shocked and as befuddled as the next guy about this, but before everybody runs around all Chicken Little, half cocked, let's all just take a breath.
    It's a done deal and as a fan you have a choice about whether you choose to help make this work or not. 
    This guy has worked miracles with the women's program accelerating it to heights it hadn't known.  He has proven himself to be an exceptional administrator, can he work the same magic coaching the men?
    I know there is going to be a lot of lame sexism in the arguments to come about how he can coach women and not men but he has earned the shot.  As I said like it or not, like Zambrano or not, he's gone, nothing positive to do about it now, except give Herdman his shot and let him get on with it.

    ^^Then it's time he got his chance to succeed or fail.  And it's not like we don't have any experience with failure now is it?

    Maybe the story got outed before he had a chance to tell them, didn't we read that here somewhere.  I know if I'm trying for a new job I'm not telling anybody anything lest something screws up.

    I have no issue with what anyone is saying about the hiring and firing (I could care less) where I have the problem is this braying about how a "women's coach" can't coach a man's team.  Absurd!

    When someone can't come up with a decent argument you see things like starwman and lmao to personally demean another.  If you read what I said I wasn't talking about Herdman thinking he could do it but the person/people doing the hiring and they would only hire the person they think could do it regardless.
