BTW, the real answer is "only the terrible GMs." Yes, occasionally trades are actually called, but it's more a case of throwing enough s*** on the wall that some has to stick.
Something like the Weber offer sheet is an easy example. For every RFA from a small market team, there's been suggestions of huge front loaded offer sheets being made. Weber is just the one case where it was actually made and the offer sheet was signed.
I'm sure they come on here to read and I'm sure one or two of them have been "inspired" from some of the talk on here deal wise. It's only human.
