In reality IMO a GM can never give the appearance to a player... to all his players... that being demoted is a permanent thing. They must have the feeling/hope that hard work and circumstances can allow them to return... But in all reality, Homer understands the situation and I'm sure it would take a dire circumstance to have him recall Leighton at the risks involved... Does Homer have to say that just because the reporters want him to do so? No, he doesn't.

At least that is what I got from it... and what I hope.
He was getting pressed on it because of how abjectly stupid his decision was with Randy Jones.
