I don't know about that Misfit, the bottom line is that regardless of who the GM was this team needed to make tough decisions this offseason. If MacT really was "the anti-Tambo" we would've walked out of the draft having no used any of our top 3 picks because they would've all been dealt for immediate help.

I'd sooner rise above this kind of crap, we'll see what Eakins thinks about it if he does dive.
