Another point that feeds into this IMO: the player council wanted Randall gone - I'm pretty sure that vote was taken mid-season last year. But as long as Ted was here, Randall remained. This year, Ted gone, and lo and behold, Randall is out. Have to wonder: if Ted hadn't left, would Randall still be here? Or on the flip side: did Ted take some sort of stand in favor of Randall (against MM and the players' council), and was that in any way part of the impetus for Ted's being 'encouraged' to move on?
Regardless of the details, I don't think it takes too much reading of the tea leaves to figure out that something was broken at the corner of Oneida and Lombardi...
