Ok, so over the years the defenders of Jim have made the case that players learn by practice, sitting on the bench, working with trainers, reading play charts, doing calligraphy with the assistant coaches, etc.
Of course they have said these things when someone either rationally or not has made the case that the young guys sitting and doing nothing but watching will not help the cause.
Now in Jim O'Brien's own words, which is going to be a real conundrum for them, he is not only stating that they need to play learn but that only way for them to learn is by getting lot's of game experience.
So I await to see the answer to this one.
Was Jim wrong in the past for not playing the young players (I'm talking about the previous three seasons as well) or is he wrong now?
Or will they rationalize it out so that he was right both times? My guess is the latter but it will be amusing to read.
Let's hear it fellas
