More Quotes About Pablo

Apparently there were more quotes from Tim and Paul about Pablo.  Looking at a few of Tim's comments:
On when the club decided to bring Mastroeni back
“We saw improvement over the second half of the season. It doesn’t mask how upset we are with the entire results of the year, but at the same time, for me, I don’t think it ever got to a point where it was a real consideration.”
Improvement being going from 15 points (.88 pts/game) to 22 points (1.29 pts/game).  Neither of those is playoff level soccer.
On whether the Rapids made a mistake hiring Mastroenibefore he was ready, considering his 17-32-18 record
“The evidence doesn’t lie. That’s just not good enough. That’s terrible. We’re not going to make any excuses or anything like that. We owe the fanbase a lot more than 17 wins over that many matches. We’re keenly aware of that. He’s aware of that. We’re all aware of that. We just have to do better. And I’m completely angry with our home form in particular. But I think we knew that it was going to be tough. Paul and I were put in a difficult situation with that coaching change at the timing when it happened. We certainly tried to do our due diligence with some coaches.”
Do I really need to go over this discussion again?  Or should I just point back to my prior posts on the subject?
On how long the Rapids are willing to stick with Mastroeni if the club finishes last next season
“It’d be unfair for me to speculate that far in advance. That’s an impossible thing for me to answer.”
“But I can tell you I don’t want to endure anymore pain, period. So we’re going to look at this very seriously as we start the season. It’s not just Pablo we’re talking myself, Paul, all of us are going to be held accountable going forward. All I can tell you is we’re completely focused on not having anymore pain.”
12-13 points in the first 5 games is the anesthetic I need to make the pain I'm feeling about the news that there will be no leadership changes go away.

So, what have you decided? We are going through the same set of questions, but are leaning towards signing up for another year. It is made easier since C38 gets the benefit, I am not sure if we could say the same thing if it was direct with the Rapids.

And you know you want to just be close to success, which is why you choose to keep the seats next to that "Zero". :)

Still undecided, waiting to see if there's anything to this Vela rumor for one.
