Grahame/Russel Dismissed

Why? It's not as though he was given a lot of talent to work with and the talent (Artukhin, Ranger and Craig) promoted did respectable jobs. Two years and out...there has to be more to this story.

There probably is

There have been rumors floating around all season of vitriolic relationships between Graham and some of the players .. I've heard Egener and Dicaire.
