Apathy in NJ

by March 12, 2009

The losing doesn’t seem to bother the players enough, and that’s driving at least one beat writer a little batty: “We say this with all the equanimity and detachment we can muster at a time like this, but it has to be asked: When the hell is somebody going to kick down a door? It’s not that we often advocate the destruction of property for the purpose of alleviating anger, but you expect the response to a loss such as this one to be immediate and volcanic, with the blood of 16 guys singing with the implacable fury of blowing a game they absolutely had to have. Instead you get…nothing. The coach was cool about it. The two stars were very cool about it.”
