In the long term, Pegula should be worried about creating an organization that players, staff, coaches, etc. want to be a part of. It's his flagship franchise idea, and it's a good one. I want him to fire Ruff too, but keeping him for another year has minimal impact on a goal that's going to take a lot longer than 3 years to reach.

Companies need long time horizons, but remain flexible in the short term. If Ruff is gone this season or the next is really immaterial in the long term goals Pegula has for the franchise.
