Ok but that is your personal judgement. My contention is with what actually transpired and I think Meltzer made a pretty good cogent argument as to why Holmgren didn't handle it properly...

I wasn't a huge Carle fan either for various reasons but he had value and to come out of it with nothing is disconcerting to me from a business POV. For those that didn't like him which I think some took too far...they are glad he is just gone. I can see that with a Leighton or Shelley but not Carle...
