You can complain all you want, but those are your real choices.

I used to think, like a lot of people..." Pegula is a fan, blah blah"


But I don't know any fans that want to keep Ruff....


So now I don't know what to think.

All I know is we are worse now than when Pegula took over, an for $20,000,000 more on the payroll

Well, Ruff is now gone, the contracts didn't matter, and Regier hasn't left with him yet. Now what?

In the Golisano era Darcy had to answer for every move he made. He was cautious because he had to be. 1 bust set the franchise back seasons because of lost playoff revenue. Under TP it's Darcy's roster and he handles it as he sees fit. Now he can afford to throw money at Leino and have it fail. He can trade his top prospect, he can trade for rights then have the dollars to close a deal and what's more Ted and Terry have told him they believe in his vision of this team and yes have trusted him with the keys. Either he brings the car home and we parade down main street or he totals it. Either way the Sabres future is in Darcy's hands.
Sooooo, do ya still think Ted and Terry are afraid to pull any strings?(and don't say that's not what ya said, cuz it is) As I said in my previous post, if they don't micro manage their GM, they're crappy businessman. PERIOD!

Actually, good businessmen know when to, and when not to micromanage something. Usually, it's a good idea to get someone competent to run things for you, especially since no one can be an expert at everything.

And there are examples out there of owners micromanaging their teams, that are much poorer as a result of such micromanaging.

Ya, maybe having a stock broker is a good idea, but letting someone else run YOUR business is a bad idea.

Warren Buffet owns like a gazillion companies and runs/manages none of them. There's no absolutes when it comes to owning and operating a business.

All those companies have their own boards who do the same thing that he and Ted do. Completely different scenario between being a primary shareholder, and the owner and president.

Terry and Ted surely discuss team matters and decide if Darcy is doing a good job. If he's not, they will do something besides just wait until he screws up so bad, then fire him. It was suggested that this is what happens, and I think today proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that if they don't like something he's doing, they will intervene(veto), and not just let him screw up real bad, then fire him. THAT'S the point we were discussing.

You don't say you hope you work together forever, and then after a string of decent games just up and can said guy.

I'm not a hypocrite. Sorry I don't live on a computer.

Here I am.

I said believe it when I see it.

I saw it.

So now I believe it. What else is there to say?

Well, hopefully there were some quality lessons learned from this exercise.

The context of this thread was centered around Pegula being a horrid owner for not firing Ruff, now he's fired, so I'm closing it down. If someone wants to start another Pegula thread on a different premise that's fine.
