Just so we're on the same page, how many times has something like this happened? Pronger, Talbot, and
Hyka. Am I forgetting any?
Of those, only one has been an issue that has had any kind of marginal impact on the way we do business. And even then, it hasn't been a major hindrance.
Let's say the Hyka thing was a last minute decision without time to look up the rule.
That leaves two instances where they had all the time in the world to understand what's up and failed at it. I think that's pretty damned troubling. The whole "GM" thing is cutthroat enough, and with a salary cap the margin for error isn't large for a team like Philly. That sort of sloppiness isn't acceptable, IMO.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
