I normally lurk here, but had to jump in to comment on this. Aren't you stretching a bit here? The GM has to make difficult decisions for the good of his franchise - it's his job, and not a popularity contest. I don't care if Polian is well-liked, as long as he and his staff continue to draft and manage the cap well, and do what's necessary to keep the franchise competitive. Why is it so difficult to acknowledge that he is an excellent GM? You don't have to like him (even I think he lets his temper show too much), but his resume speaks for itself.
