I meant (contract aside), do you want Torts to be the coach next season.
The reality of the situation is the decision for Torts to get canned this season is going to be completely up to how much heat Aquilini is personally taking and THAT'S IT. The decision to fire Torts will cost Aquaman X amount of dollars and rich people don't pay X dollars if they can help it.
FFS the value of the franchise has gone up $500m
in the last 6 years.
And then there's the year-to-year profits which could be something similar.
All you people buying into the media "Aquaman can't/won't pay it" bullshit has got
If the right move is to can Torts then Aquaman can't afford NOT to do it.
But it's not the right move.

Torts was brought in to destroy the country club atmosphere.
