Expecting someone to keep their word is idealistic?

Is it any particularly surprise that successive generations are increasingly more cynical?

Unless it's in his contract that he would be starting this year, it really doesn't matter what he was told, or what he was promised. A business need changed, and so did his position. It's no different from any other business, except this is being played out in the public view and potentially at higher stakes.

It's a ****** way to run an organization, but they're not doing anything "wrong". I think it will come back to bite them in the ass in many different ways down the road, but no...they are not wronging Bard in some unimaginable way.
Do they have to be?

Remember, we're pillorying Bard for being a bad team player. The burden of proof is on those accusing Bard.

If he was digging in his heels and refusing to pitch out of the pen that's one thing. That's being a clubhouse lawyer rather than a team player. It's also not what Bard's doing. After all, he's gone along with everything they asked him to do. Just wants the FO to keep its word that over the long term he's a SP.
