How does this guy still have a job?



Just when I thought it was safe to go back and read the Sentinel, I come across this.  How does Brian Schmitz still have a job?  Constructive criticism is one thing but straight up negative resignation makes no sense, especially from the local beat writer.  I don't know what this guy has against the Magic.  I don't know if he's trying to be cutting edge or facetious or what; but if any of the players read his stuff, who knows what they are thinking.  It is a real morale booster going into the playoffs if you ask me.  Let me sum up Schmitz' article, the Magic shouldn't even dress for the playoffs cause they've already lost.

The team's problems aside, there is no need to bash what is going on with this team the way Schmitz does. To an extent, the Magic have been unlucky the last few weeks...they've also had a very unfavorable schedule littered with home and away back to backs and long home and road stretches, so the team is kind of worn out as is.  Add to that the fact they have been locked into the 4th spot with no real room to move up (or even down really) since the beginning of March along with the injuries and inconsistent lineups and you have what's going on now. But to tear it all down with pessimism like Schmitz does and print it in the local paper is wrong.  The day this guy retires, will be a glorious day in Orlando Magic history.
