Everything you say was true last year and is true again this year.
The only difference is that Ehrhoff left and the coaching staff is forced to play Ballard.
I say forced because we all see if that if there is even a slight chance a rookie could be better (Sulzer), AV will play the rook ahead of Ballard.
What really confuses the fuck out of me right now is why GMMG didn't address this situation last summer. Maybe he was hoping for better things? We are now at the half way point of a season where nothing less than winning a SC is acceptable and Ballard is STILL an issue.
Ballard has to be moved ad there are no ifs, ands or buts about it.
