Why now? That's all. Fine with it, since it'll be a few years until we see if his rebuild-in-progress is successful.

Of course, I'm no fan of Lindy... and recognize that a Regier extension is also a Lindy extension. I can live with it. I like the direction Regier is going with the talent he's putting together through the draft. Lindy can't coach an average team up... but he can get out of the way of a talented roster

Well, he has recently said he changes his mind sometimes. So any point he makes, just remember, he may change his mind. Just give it time.

It's only long-term when ownership is too cheap or can't afford to buy him out. It gives Regier the freedom to resist meddling. If he doesn't want to go along with something Pegula suggests he can no and not have to worry about getting fired because he'll still be getting paid for a long time.

Can someone refresh my memory on the following ...... ?

When Pegula took over the team, didn't Ruff defer on a contract extension and everyone was cool with the way he made it be Pegula & Ted Black's decision?

And didn't Darcy take the extension offered by Galifano/Quinn versus leaving the decision to Pegula/Black? (Which a lot of folks were pissed about?)

I am simply curious as to what side of the above issues folks were on before compared to now......
For the record, I was in the camp that thought Regier should let Pegula make the decision. Not that it matters now because in my opinion Darcy has certainly redeemed hisself in light of nearly all the moves that he's made since the Pegula era was initiated.
