My take is that Dooley comes off as a [Penis] toward the players and is always too willing to deflect blame away from himself and toward the players...failing most of the time to even acknowledge it is his job to teach them. He is arrogant and has little apparent regard for his players. He is a snake oil salesman who thinks a drawl and orange pants will keep him a job that he is completely unqualified for, from what I can tell. He tries to stitch together a public image that he thinks will buy him time and favor while being essentially a scared man who will trod over his players with insults while serving up honey to the fans. He's sad, really. His players seem to hate him...as do those who have to work for him, it seems. It's one thing to be hard-nosed and critical yet respectable because of your ability and the culture you create - it is a completely different thing to be a horse's ass who no coaches or players want to follow because they are constantly left stepping in what you leave behind. Or, he could be a good guy and heck of a coach - just misunderstood. Doubt it, though.
