So far, Haslam has been as passionate and as intensely involved as Randy was in his first 6 months as owner. We'll see where Haslam is in year 10 and compare that to year 10 of Randy. So far, no really significant difference between the two.

Most people in a suit could be applied to this logic. He never said he had the experience to run the team so why should anyone act as if he should? He has only done what anyone without experience could do. Have a say so in his FO and then let them go to work
It’s putting the right people in place and then holding them accountable. Therefore, I don’t care how much time we visibly see him. You can use a scare tactic but Banner, Lombardi, Chud and Horton may all be those types of people regardless if liked by all or any at the start. Instead of coming out of the gate with a college coach who had full control he at least has NFL people with experience that can act as checks and balances. Could they fail? Of course. Could Haslam prove as inept as Randy? Sure, but we will see it much sooner than 10 years. We will start seeing pieces of evidence come draft day and FA. It won’t take long to see how strong this FO is and how Haslam reacts.
As far as how much time he needs to put in? Enough to not let things fester as badly as Randy did each time and then having no choice but to blow it all up and start all over again. He needs to keep tabs with not just Banner but Lombardi, Chud and Horton to keep in the loop and get a feel on what’s going on.
