    "Some of the decisions that I make are an effort to become popular with the veteran players on my team. Take Chauncey for instance; I wouldn't DARE question the condition of his hammy or his ability to stay in front of his man. That wouldn't make me popular at all!
    ...And notice that I NEVER yell at my players no matter WHAT they do! - That wouldn't make me popular either!

    Hey, I hear Chris McCosky really likes me!"

    I'm giving serious thought to going the Sprewell route.

    Hey what's the big idea sneaking in a Sheed quote.
    But on a ref or just Flip?

    Is he saying that the team is going to tell them everything they know? I hope they don't reveal the secrets of the playbook.

    For Flip and the non-Americans/ non- Australians here:
    spill your guts (American & Australian, informal)
    to tell someone all about yourself, especially your problems.

    "Spill your Guts" also happens when one eats a bowl of Wendy's chili. :toilet: or :puke:

    "It's not a flagrant when you tackle a guy?" Saunders said. "I mean, especially in that situation. Chauncey's been a guy who's been hurt, you know, he gets tackled, he could pop that hamstring and he'd be done for the series.
    "I guess, as I told the referee when I was standing there, we've got New England Patriots here, (Tedy) Bruschi, he had a tackle like that in the Super Bowl, but I don't think that's allowed in basketball."

    You missed the qoute from that art.
