He tried to go get Weber and Nash matched. That's not Homer's fault.

Outside of Weber, who else was he suppose to go get that would improve the team and at the same time preserve the young core we have developed?
Suter.

Carle.

I'm not going to pretend I'm an expert at the ins and outs of signing players and negotiating with agents, no one here is. And I would hope no one tries to defend him with claims like "his hands were completely tied" as if they did know that for sure. Bottom line is he didn't do what he needed to do, and that's not remotely in dispute.
