This decision was so above these peoples pay grade.
Berman or/and Braga were given a short list of options by the money.
Anyone else is just a tiny cog trying to justify/explain the decisions made around them and through them.
Biller and Taylor may have been asked their opinions because the B's liked and valued them as people, writers and underlings, but they got a pay check or a pink slip each week depending on how much/well they danced like monkeys for their organ grinder.
Being in the inner circle made their lives more dangerous not safer.
