You don't get to where Ted is in life by being dumb.

I had some email discussions with him prior to the draft and it was clear he had no intentions of mortgaging the future to win now. I'm sure he and George had discussions.

I'm sure he knew that if he told George that his job was on the line then George would indeed trade away futures.

To me its actually very logical that what I laid out is EXACTLY what happened.

If we make the playoffs and win a round or two (very possible) then George keeps his job.

Miss the playoffs then George will be fired.

Make the playoffs and get ousted? Who knows....I guess it depends on the fashion in which we lose.
