The hires don't matter that much, at least not yet. They could... but that's the second logic gate. If the first logic gate is closed, then the second doesn't matter.
If they make a bad hire, that'd be disappointing. But even if they hire great people, it's meaningless if they don't change their stripes as owners. Nobody can overcome the Angelos influence as its been to date.
Nah, that's not accurate.
2012-16 happened and not everything went right in that period, starting with Ownership.
If Ownership is even slightly better going forward, that's a win. (Maybe not enough of a win, but improvement all the same.)
How the hires are allowed to operate obviously matters more than who, but who is hired will also be telling and matter.
