Team Tuck... I wish you would read more closely. My beef with Bowden soley centers around his inability to handle sitautions with any type of class.
Having spent time with other GM's and having personally witnessed Jim interact with players, managers and other front office personnel I can say w/o question he has very bad people skills. His tirades are well known, his handling of managers has been suspect, he has ROYALLY screwed over dozens of players and his off the field issues have deeply affected not only him but the club.
Have you ever been in the clubhouse? Do you go on the road with the team at any point in the year? Have you ever witnessed Jim crash through the clubhouse doors and rip a player in front of everyone? Do you see all of the lies he generates and then has the PR Dept dish them out to the media? Do you witness the PR Director ripping his own club in front of the the media and then bullying the hometown press into writing non-truths? I didn't think you were there for any of those things. Your opinion is respected. Just do not try to change the facts if you were not there to be a witness.
