His strategy is always "let's torch our cities and they will starve first.". But this galvanized the PA by making it an allout war. No way this should have gone on this long. Failure.
he is a terrible face for the league. His condescending, arrogant, elitist, demeanor makes him easily
disliked. Perhaps unfair, but true.
And to add the most obvious point, he has failed to keep the game on ice, which is his ultimate mandate. If he gets the credit for growth, then he gets the blame for this monstrousity of a league that now sees a lost season, not as a one-off tragedy, but as 'part of the process'. Failure
