#1 "In the company's 2018 annual report, he wrote that gun sales were a "sizeable part" of Dick's business" Are they a privately held company, how does he still have a job?

There are many ways they could have gone about removing guns from inventory (Sell existing stock, split the company to create a hunting-based spin-off, quietly return the guns to the manufacturers) but Dick's CEO insulted customers while virtue-signaling to never-gonna-be-customers and he cost the company big.

And he said the losses are about what he expected. He should be tarred-and-feathered.

#2 And he said the losses are about what he expected

I'm so old, I remember when CEOs wanted to make a profit.

#5 "Stutter" is what the senior leadership do when asked to explain why they lost so much money that lead to shuttering the company...

So you're not wrong Skidmark!
