So we are playing a high price game of chicken with Sega and if we lose him what are Frank's options? Is Kinney ever going to be fit again? Is Gargan in or out? Is Jumper or Walls ready to step up? Is Anibaba really going to stay a RB now that Gibbs is retired or will he shift back to CB? Concerning Bone, for 2 years or so he has waited for his chance and not put up astounding numbers in reserve matches but offers some things not seen on stat sheets and it seems like he gets on a roll in Reserve league then if he doesn't deliver in 45 minutes for the big matches it's back to the bench with him. His contract is very high and I am not surprised by the Fire not exercising the option but if you ask me the Fire's main issue in all this is needing a single Defensive Mid that can play the holding job by himself. Using Pause and Pardo as holding mids for the sake of a striker or attacker is tactically negative (not to mention dull to watch). I would rather be shopping for a Trequartista and a Defensive Mid and put Rolfe up top with Mackie. I also think Franco has a lot more to offer than we have seen. But anyway, I think Frank is pretty set on how he wants to play and Pause/Pardo will be there in 2013.
