But what's done is done and we have to move forward from here. Many GMs have made big mistakes during their rebuilds - Cam barker with 3rd overall, Hickey with 4th overall as examples - and the teams have still gone on to be successful.

My main interest in discussing it is that I don't think Sherman, or whoever is actually in charge of decisions for us, has done a particularly good job for us in this rebuild, contrary to what was popular opinion on our forum in the past, and I would rather we have someone better running our team. Not going to happen though so what can you do.
I made the EJ thread because I was tired of constantly seeing the EJ trade discussed in the Sherman thread. Sherman has made other moves, and it seemed like all everyone wanting to discuss lately was the EJ trade, and I felt that it was prudent to have a separate thread for those who wanted to discuss the EJ trade. Foppa2118 spent a lot of time working on the OP for the Sherman thread, and didn't deserve to have it hijacked.
