Zman... a captain shouldn't
get involved with the politics. So I hope if it IS Mushy he will concentrate on leading the team, setting a tough example in training, being even handed, not doing or saying anything controversial off the field and just getting on with winning matches.
Whatever others do or say, it is the captain's job to run the team and a tight ship. He has to be humble and well as a leader. Working with the head coach is vital.
Let's stop using the BCB as an excuse for the on field failings. Let them do what they need to do off the field and let's have the players do what they need to do on the field.
