    Default Absolutely ridiculous

    Lin Dunn should be fired after this abysmal second half. There are two all-stars on this team and the Fever blow a 15-pont second half lead. 19 SECOND HALF points.

    I suppose it really doesn't matter. It would just be a massacre in the playoffs anyway. They get attacked by teams like Detroit and have no clue how to respond.

    I don't really like her. I don't see why they got rid of Winters.

    Plus, her voice annoys me.

    I tried going into the season with an open mind where the coach was concerned. I went to the first home game and wasn't the least bit impressed with how she handled the game. I'm assuming it was Kelly Krauskopf's bright idea to fire Brian Winters. As far as I'm concerned she should be fired along with Lin Dunn.

    I couldn't agree with you more. The Fever seem to be losing large leads frequently this year.

    I'd like to thank Rick Mahorn for taking the spotlight off the fact that the Fever just lost to friggin' Chicago. Good lord this team is crap!

    If it was up to me she never would have been hired in the first place.

    I never thought they should have gotten rid of Brian Winters in the first place. What I want to know is did they even interview anyone besides Lin? You would think that a team with Tamika Cathings would be a team people would want to coach.

    And another lead slips away. They led by 9 with three minutes to go and lose in OT. They didn't hit a field goal in the last 7 minutes of the game. At the end of regulation, how does Tan White end up taking the last shot on a team with Katie and Tamika?

    It's not just the losing. It's the way they are losing. The 4 losses in 5 games, they had 4th quarter leads in all 4 of them. It's becoming painfully obvious that Dunn freezes up and goes into a prevent defense. She plays not to lose instead of playing to win and that is a FATAL flaw when you have a team that is a contender. I'm absolutely certain that if Winters were still around this team would be on fire.

    It's almost comical at this point. Reminds me a lot of the IU basketball team this past season. Only worse, because Dunn has no massive chemistry issues (as far as we know) to deal with.

    Wow - just think of what it might look like if we weren't fortunate to have this homestand. Oh wait - sorry it didn't matter did it. Stick a fork in them. Dunn managed to do in half a season what it took a whole season to do last year.

    While I agree that Dunn definitely needs to go, I can't put this last loss totally on her. The Fever, for the most part, played well all game.

    What did them in was the Lynx going to the line 36 times, while the Fever only went 16 times. I can't recall the Lynx making a lot of FG's in the 2nd half, but I can recall them going to the line almost every other possession. Some of that is partially bad defense and dumb fouls by the Fever. But the refs (as usual for a WNBA game) were horrible. They really could have let a few of those calls against the Fever go and they certainly let the Lynx get away with a few things on the other end as well.

    Well, the Fever have a game Thursday and as far as I know that worthless pile of Linn Dunn is still the coach.

    If I'm not mistaken the Fever would have to make up 3 1/2 games with 8 left to make the playoffs. Um - riiiiiight.

    26 point loss. Totally unacceptable. Something has to be done.

    I'm not the biggest Fever fan yet but I already think our coach sucks.
