I agree.... Unfortunately, these days (and particularly in this market) you're going to have to have a GM who's skilled in playing the politician because people are incredibly impatient and rarely understand the big picture.

What BC is saying now is essentially what Babcock said back in the day. Problem is Babcock was a nerd, so no on took him seriously. BC may not have any more practical knowledge but he certainly has the air of a confident man about him.
