You never know, I guess Howson and Richards could catch lightning in a bottle this year and I'm guessing that is what JPMac is banking on.
I'm arguing moreso that the 2 year instead of standard three year, coupled with all the things I mentioned makes this a cost saving measure. Interviewing candidates and coordinating times with them, albeit desirable, also is money and time spent.

I'm guessing this has nothing to do with Howson's security as the GM.... for now.
