We don't know this at all. None of this is factual.

But if the above IS true then taking a year to deal with that situation falls squarely on Rhodes shoulders.

Exactly how helpful is it that Reed, Rhodes, and Hervey are confronting Tillmans performance after the fact. Where was any intervention that could've been helpful DURING Tillmans employment? Was there any? Who knows. WE do know that Rhodes hadn't even put some conditions on Tillman. For instance to approve deals with him. Its asinine really that Rhodes is seen complaining about trading away our first pick because it happened in his watch and apparently long after he had concerns and misgivings about Tillman.

Not everything comes out clean in the wash as the three amigos would have anybody believe. I suspect two of them were a part of the problem.
