Point and laugh is the last thing these owners want ... That's why things like Gaine's firing never came with much explanation (that's a real embarrassment) and why media is at risk of losing their credentials for letting certain cats out of the bag (DHop) or being critical of the team / decisions - they are too busy worrying about marketing and image to give a damn about winning.Yep. Just have to bite the bullet and endure a few years of cutting and accumulating talent and draft capital.
Of course, that all depends on making good hires for their front office, and the jury will be out on that for a while.
I was having a feeling of "beginning of the end" when Gaine was fired and they were embarrassed by the Caserio debacle. It just reeked of bush league moves. Championship organizations, or at least ones striving for it, rarely commit so many dumb and seemingly irrational mistakes.
Yep. QFT. And this is one of the inherent problems with these owners. They allow their emotional attachments and sentimentality to make very unqualified decisions about football operations.
It's one thing to make a mistake on a failed piece of merchandise or concourse restaurant. But they continue to let their inexperience infect the football side of things to their detriment.
Obviously, it's their right to do so as owners. However, it's also my right as a fan/customer to analyze their decisions and either applaud or point and laugh.
