Arrogance can lead one to miss, or misinterpret, the details... even if you started out as an informed fan.
EDIT: I'll take rookie Linden and Benning and a serving of patience over an informed fan wanna be GM who is arrogant enough to think hes "in the know" and can actually be a GM. And others have said this already, but we needed those 22-26 year olds because Gillis and co couldn't draft. We had a HUGE age gap. I'm surprised an informed fan such as yourself would overlook or undervalue such a thing within your organization.
