Sather is painfully deliberate at times. This is not the offseason to be deliberate. Richards is, by a country mile, the easiest decision of the offseason.
It literally should not even be a thought. It should have been "Thanks, Brad. We had two good runs with you. Appreciate your leadership. You more then anyone understand this is a business. We'd love to keep you, but in a cap world, it's not realistic."
