    @Americano:

    I think HM should have / could have fired some of
    his 27 assistants and contracted this woman.
    Then again, do you need peripheral vision if all
    the plays are carried out on numbered moves?
    :pot:

    All those assistants i thought was a joke.
    I guess its true?
    Had to be something Zee Meyer picked up from his time @ Bulls, who seem bent on pushing the limits of decadence ever forward.

    There was some fitness guy who always talked about how the players played too many games – I bet he snaps that guy up too.
