In Defense of Reggie's Green Bay "Favoritism"

A year later, and this is still something you can read in any conversation. "Reggie picks up his guys from Green Bay as a power trip" or "Reggie can't see past the guys he already signed". With the trade for Flynn this argument has heated up all over again. But let me pose this to you...

You're a manager of a retail store. You've hired up a sales staff around you. You picked them, trained them, learned their strengths, weaknesses, personality quirks. They're not all perfect, but they are your team.

Now you take a job at another, competing business. There is already a sales staff, but many are less than stellar and haven't been groomed into what you look for in your employees. You're already in a stressful situation learning your new job so you need to surround yourself with winners ASAP. Of course you post job listings in the classifieds. You get some good people from there! But some of your old team, the ones you know and have brought up from the beginning, are willing to come work for you in your new job.

Is it lazy to hire them? Are you on a "power trip"? No! You're setting yourself up to succeed.

Please, you don't have to agree with everything Reggie does. I certainly don't. But the argument against his GB pick-ups is getting tired. Let's argue about the positives (and negatives) of the individual players. This encourages productive, entertaining discussion instead of spiteful troll-baiting.
