Default Re: Why do some GMs appear to be so dumb?

There is the Larry Brown way of thinking - GMs are only going to be there 5-6 years, so during the first 3-4 years of a long term contract the guy can play, but during those last 2-3 years you'll be gone anyway when the guy is beat up and old, so what difference does it make to you (you in the general sense)?

That's why the new CBA has to limit contracts to 4 years for regular contracts and 2 years for extensions and then MLEs to 3 years (with 2 year extensions after that).
