I could see that argument, but I don't buy it. Shanny has become the face of the franchise and he takes heat for everything that happens. Even though Sundquist is the GM, no one even believes that he has any more power than a figure head. Individually those people do have responsibility, but the media and most fans wind up going straight to Shanny.
