LL is the only guy who has been through every one of these, and while that's hardly relevant, it emphasizes the point that this ATD 2011 is not ATD 1. I don't know about anyone else, but I think as over time this draft has changed, the expectation of it has changed too. We've had almost a complete turnover of GM's since the start, so doesn't it make sense that expectations and standards don't stay identical throughout, for better or for worse? Unless I have the definition of integrity screwed up, wouldn't that change as time progresses too, if it even exists hypothetically?
If this stunt was pulled 6 years ago, would anyone have cared? Not at all, because there was no playoffs. Now, it's obviously a big deal.
