I think near the top of this thread I explained why I do not think this thread should be merged and why it is not a dead issue. http://www.wnff.net/index.php?topic=27948.0;msg=1143364
those prior threads were more or less about the plan for Stras's season and the news he would be shut down. this thread is more dealing with the aftermath of the decision. There will be year's of discussion about this. MtH's view, pretty clear in the OP, is that this was a clear error. Others disagree. That's what threads are for.
