There is no way that the releasing of Ward was going to be to anyone's liking. You had a player who can't play anymore but insisting on staying. Couple with us being up against the cap, it wasn't going to work.
But....in these situations..90% are usually like this so I don't know what you want. A parade or something??? Get over it. It wasn't going to end well in any, way, shape or form. It is what it is.
