People like to speculate that Tambellini is a puppet with Lowe's hand up his butt, but really that's all it is, is speculation. From my best guess (based on what Tambo has said), he is the man in charge, but occasionally will ask a guy like Lowe for advice. Lowe has said he doesn't give Tambo advice unless he asks for it.
I understand that people have a big hate on for Lowe, but that seems a little implausible that Tambellini took on a job here where he is just the face of all the bad decisions other people on this team makes, like he just sits quietly waiting for orders.
Ideally if there is a GM change, both Tambellini and Lowe go. There are others that should go with them too. I think there's a lot of input coming from different directions, including from Tambellini. But I don't think he's anyone's puppet.
