Seriously. A warning to every GM and an extra kick under the bus to Ribeiro.

Yeah, seems really unprofessional to mention that. Only thing I can guess is maybe Ribeiro was really acting out and it wasn’t substance abuse related. Had to be something to piss them off on a level where they don’t give a toss about Ribeiro.

Would have worded it as “personnel issues” with Ribeiro.  Tact, Maloney.

“Mike had some real behavior issues last year with us I felt we could not tolerate going forward,” General Manager Don Maloney said. “To his credit, he has been getting help this offseason and obviously would hope he continues. But at the end of the year and all the background checking and what happened, we felt that for us to move forward, we couldn’t have him a part of this team.”
