Take a look around on GMs who change players with regularity. Their performance is not stellar although they are hailed for their "big" moves. It is for the fans. The steady (hold on to your players) GMs have a big advantage in performance . . . and they know it.

The writers who put this out are rewarded by activity as it generates readership and advertising dollars. How many writers gain readership by praising a team for staying the course? How many writers try to generate a grudge against a player themselves and write about how the GM being too attached because it doesn't serve their agenda?
