But I know Ruff played the injury card with that one.
My managerial experience says that it is generally a good idea to see how employees work under me as opposed to judging them on how they worked for a previous manager.

Some "high performers" aren't good fits and some "poor performers" blossom under me.

I can understand why Pegula would want to see how Ruff & Regier did under his ownership.

I am starting to question why he's so patient.
