Can't take this approach. If your in two minds and think it may boost sales to remove the gm then it needs to be done asap. The draft the most important time of the year for the gm as a lot what happens whether it will be drafting kids or making trades will dictate the approach to free agency and how opening day roster looks. The new gm needs time to evaluate a new direction and it should start immediately at the end of the season and not 1 July. I'm very certain that a new gm, a great draft and a big trade will spark sth interest. Follow that up with good free agent signings and a good preseason games performance and that should to an increase in attendance initially.
