    Looking back on a bucky piece from March by Bucky:

    item 1--check

    Item 14- he was hired by the team

    item 10 is no available for hire

    I think the Nolan hire is purely a temporary hire and Nolan know that.

    One thing's for sure: today is a day that Bucky has been waiting for for a decade. He'll be celebrating, and he gets early credit for breaking the story when many (including myself) laughed at him because we thought he must be trolling us.

    I think his professionalism is atrocious, but he's a smart guy, and his personal insistence that the Sabres change the way they do things may be vindicated in the long run.

    He's been hired as the interim coach, so yeah. They mentioned during the press conference whoever they hire as the next GM will be able to bring in his own coaching staff.

    I'm not at all defending Bucky in any way shape or form.

    I take column writing with a grain of salt n sports. In local media across the country it's the same.....you intentionally provoke one side or another to drive ratings.

    Sabres fans called Gleason a "****ing troll" when he tweeted the Nolan info this morning.

    I was one of them and I was dead wrong. It seemed unbelievably far stretched.

    Yep, and I thought he was being sarcastic. The guy deserves credit. And I have no problem whatsoever with his insistence on calling out this organization. They deserve it.

    Right and if he was being sarcastic, I would call it trolling. Hence why I did.

  11. Lets be fair.... Ted Nolan coming back has been a running joke mocking the stream of drunken WGR callers for over a decade.

    Totally out of left field, although it does make sense with Patty back on board.

    It doesn't say a lot about the guy that people can't tell when he's reporting something or being sarcastic.

    Perhaps that's because he doesn't report anything. He just grinds his axe, employs his 20-20 hindsight, engages in his breath-holding pouts, pursues his vendettas, spews his ego-gratifying proposals, indulges his delusions of influence, and uses unattributed (fabricated) quotes, and unsubstantiated (made-up) accounts to create the deception that he's functioning as a "journalist".

    Sadly, his loathsome shenanigans are pretty much what a "journalist" does under the tragically debased definition of that term nowadays.
