I may get flamed for this, but I believe WH's response to Saban's resignation was right on. Some have criticized WH for not showing anger or vinsdictiveness towards Saban. I believe his reaction as perfect and showed a lot of class, grace and maturity. Here's a couple or reasons why I think this:
1. If WH had reacted with anger and vidictiveness he would have lowered
himself to Saban's level. By reacting with grace, WH made Saban look like
the weasel he is. Saban can never say that WH is a bad owner or hard to
work for. I listened to WH press conference and my thought was, "How
could Saban do that to such a nice guy." If elt sorry for WH. He came out
looking like the victim of betrayal and Saban came out looking like the
betrayer. WH handled this exactly right.
2. If I was a coaching candidate, WH is the kind of owner I would like to work
for. He's not going to be a hard head or a jerk to work for. If WH had
reacted with anger and bitterness, he would only attract another Saban.
WH showed CHARACTER and in doing so showed that Saban has NONE.
I think we would all agree that our next coach should not only be a great
coach, but should also be a man of great character (ala Shula). We need a
man who will keep his word to the owner, players, coaches and fans, not
another fraud. WH's response will attract men who have some CHARACTER
which is exactly what this franchise needs.
In my opinion, WH acted with grace under fire. He showed a lot of character and class. I'm glad he's the owner. He's the kind of man you would want for a friend or a boss.
