I agree with your basic premise.I must be old school. You actually want your board backing your staff, not trying to undermine them at every corner. I remember Chappy saying he would support Burton until he no longer could. When it became obvious he couldn't, he didn't. (Is that like political leaders? You back them until they become unbackable). It may have been one year too late, but Chapman has clearly shown over the years he will give second chances, and offer the benefit of the doubt. As for how elite he is, even I got a chuckle out of that one.
My concern is the effusive praise Chapman heaped on Burton just weeks out from a review in which Burton was shown to be none of the things Chapman mentioned
There is support then there is OTT.
