Why?

Yes, Tampa's needs are paramount. But to only play Jones for 9 seconds. Come on! In Norfolk this weekend we looked so disorganized, poor passing, PP stunk, poor faceoffs, the list goes on.

Now I am not saying Jones could have remedied all our ills, but we would have been a lot more competitive with him. So to see him go and play 9 whole seconds and MacDonald sit in the pressbox has us in Norfolk frustrated.

If you are going to call them up, please use them. If not let them stay in Norfolk so we can use them to help us.
