How could any GM/Owner be that dense? It seems absurd to the point that there must be some other factor at play here that is, thus far, hidden from view
Seriously? How could you ask such a question: "How could an owner be that dense?"

You DO realize that this is an owner who was part of a group that UNANIMOUSLY backed a similar crazy-low strategy dealing with the players union, going in with 43% of revenue, then even after the season should have started was still making insulting offers like "making the players whole" with THEIR OWN dollars!!

MB has his principles, didn't Bill Daly say the owners were ready to "die on a hill" to make sure no contracts went past 5 years, then after missing 3 months, we ended up with 7-8 year maximums?

I don't know why we would be shocked to see such incompetence now when we witnessed it daily for 6 months.
