Do I really have to start adding these tedious riders for the benefit of the pedants here?
I remember calling for Hussey's head numerous times throughout 2009 but I'm more than willing to acknowledge that he has more than earned his spot for the past few years and to suggest otherwise is frankly ludicrous.
