"The timing of this whole thing is strange, it’s a unique feeling, you know, because it’s unfortunate that our players didn’t get the feeling of coming off of our home field and getting the applause they deserved for the season. We understand why we didn’t because we had a bad performance but, at the same time, it’s a strange one in that there’s no real celebration."
