Don't get me wrong - I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you. MB could've gotten PK signed longterm for cheaper than he will in a year's time, I just don't think it's a huge deal. I get why he wanted to wait and find it hard to fault him a whole lot. Like you, I wanted him signed longterm ASAP, but I didn't go ape when he forced a bridge deal on him.

I guess my point is this: as far as GM transgressions go, this barely registers on the Richter Scale.
