mr. montagliani In Men's National Teams Posted December 29, 2012 hi dino, i know you are a big supporter of montagliani's and i like his effort. to me, he just doesn't appear to be very polished. and in his position that is what he should be - or he needs an advisor as to what he shoudl say or he needs a pr person to answer for him. and a podcast after an 8-1 loss? come on... anyone would say some very strongly opinionated things about the team and its players. he is a new hire - trying to show he is the man for the job. he had to explain the loss to "his board" because he needed to defend his position. and as anyone would in that position he deflected (by saying this was not the best shot ever) and said that the next 4 years would be the best shot - the time he will be in power. he is scared of his job. he is showing little confidence already and frankly i am more than just a little concerned. i hate to make such a bad analogy but this is feeling a bit like rob ford - a person for the people but has very limited speaking skills and poise for what is good for confidence in the public. i am worried to say the least. If Victor was ANYTHING like Rob Ford, there would be ZERO chance i'd be supportive of his presidency. I can assure you that the man is very polished, his speaking skills are far from limited (and extend to 3 languages with fluency and a 4th which isn't quite perfectly fluent but quite solid) and absolutely doesn't lack for confidence. IMHO, you are reading far too much into a single interview. You are entitled to your opinions and I won't go on and on trying to convince you otherwise. Suffice to say, I don't share your concerns....not even in the slightest.
