It is still a clear indication on how he assesses talent for this team and that, more than Barker specifically, is where the long term implications may come in.
I agree...the decision to sign Barker and the decisions that followed were quite telling. I have to take a step back after each Tambo decision (and proclamation) because he has made so many questionable ones that it has lowered my expectations.

That said I am open to the possibility that he is/has learned on the job. I don't want to paint myself into a position where I am simply defending my position for the sake of validation.
