Ok, making moves with the intention to satisfy the fans remains incredibly stupid. It's also not a motivating factor for Homer, or Gagne would still be a Flyer.
If Homer looked at his entire body or work, his terrible performance pretty much anytime he faced a determined and good offense, and decided "I HAVE TO SIGN THIS MAN, NO CHOICE" than he shouldn't have his job. If he ever once thought "I should sign Leighton because a casual fan will be pleased" he shouldn't have his job either.
If it wasn't even Homer's call (doubtful), then Snider needs to stay the hell away from those decisions.
Leighton would NOT have had success elsewhere. If he had signed elsewhere, it would have been in a backup role at best. Otherwise he would have been shredded, unless he wound up on a team who's defense was capable of babysitting him nonstop...there aren't many defenses like that. Ours in 2010 was.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
