honestly all those points i don't think that by themselves are big deals honestly and you can always look into those and kind of somewhat justify them one by one. We did well through all of those and it didnt really bite our ass "that much".
BUT, They are all part of a pretty damn clear pattern that lou has and this pattern over a long period of time did catch up with us and here we are.
Just that Lou mostly always sat and gave the opportunity to core players to walk for nothing (the list is pretty damn long) and thank god we were competitive and that players wanted to stay here, a LOT of them did re-sign but they could have walk too, you just can't gamble with that and it did bite our asses quite a few times. And then the patching work win-now mentality signing vets. Of course it was not a problem and the consequences were not as bad when we were a powerhouse and were drafting okay. But once our stock dropped it really exposed how problematic it was.
You have changed your tune. Why the sudden switch of oppinion?
