With the resent trades in the BBY , this reporter felt called to action to point out a mass hypocrisy within the ranks of the BBy GMs.
For a few years now the words have gotten harsher when it comes to the infamous Gm Chad. Most Gms in the pool scream bloody murder every time he makes a trade, “what a rip off artist” , “how does he get people to say yes?”, “this is B.S. ” are just a few of the common statements when it comes to GM Chad. But this reporter wants to answer .. who is to Blame?
Can you really blame GM Chad for making the trade to get Benn? would you say no to getting Forsberg for Carter? sure the constint bad trade offers drive GM’s nuts, sure he’s happy to tell you how his players are the best and yours all suck, sure he’s happy to “help you win” by trading you the old guy for the young guy, sure he’s an ass… but you still say yes… time after time, bad offer after bad offer, he still makes the trades.
No matter how much people complain , he still makes the deals. so who is really to blame? who is to blame for the thousands of e-mails insulting your intelligence? who is to blame for the arrogant trash talk, that most people get ONE on ONE from him? who is to blame for creating a Gm who is all the bad parts of GM Wayne, Gm Josh and Gm Rez? the Awnser: we are.

The trade for Benn, I sent an offer for him and received a counter offer and the deal happened.
The Carter trade:
I received an inquiry then an offer, sent a counter. The other gm wanted what he wanted so I gave him what he wanted and the deal was done.
