I understand your point of view, but see it differently. If Fisher said I will come to Miami if Ireland is gone......then its not Ireland's fault then it falls on Ross's feet to make a decision who do ya want more?  Fisher or Ireland. Just the way I see it. Obviously you disagree.
What you are talking about is an evaluation of Ireland's decision making, which has nothing to do with whether prospects are avoiding Miami because they don't want to deal with Ireland.  If Fisher and/or Harbaugh wouldn't sign with Miami as long as Ireland was the GM, then that speaks directly to that point.

Fisher and Harbaugh wouldn't come as long as [insert name here] was the GM, because they wanted full control.  It has nothing to do with Ireland specifically, he just happened to be the guy in that role.

If they stripped Ireland of his power and brought it to Fisher, giving him full control but not firing Ireland, I don't think he would have objected.  But that's stupid because Ireland would be a powerless figure with no real responsibility.

Wrong again.  Both the Rams and the Niners have GM's.

^^ I'm just going by what the media reported.  Personally, I think the Harbaugh thing was doomed and ridiculous to begin with because these idiots went to interview a guy for a position that was already filled. 

To me that's a bigger blunder than any of the player moves.

Having a GM and having "final say" are two different things.

Fisher was willing to work with Ireland, as long as he (Fisher) had final say

Gil Brandt throws some praise at Ireland and the entire Fins franchise going into 2013. Has them ranked as the #2 "team on the rise"
