Who gives a ****? Oh it sends a confused signal? I guess he shouldn't have done it. He should have signed them to shorter deals and then traded them. That would have made it ok. Or maybe he shouldn't have traded them at all, then people would be complaining that we don't have any young talented players because he signed Carter and Richards.
You're completely missing the point. Why bother signing players to those contracts if you aren't going to keep them? Why establish those two as the long term plan, and then completely abandon it almost immediately? It's almost as if Homer doesn't actually have a long term plan.
