If I recall correctly, there was some team executive who blasted his team for playing poorly and saying something to the effect of:"Why would I try to trade anyone? They're not worth being traded (becasue they are bad)." Something like that. I would much rather have a GM like that, to light a fire under the pants of the players, than to have a GM instill some false sense of security in players who are underachievers. This is why I have not been impressed by BG as a GM so far.
