Nevertheless, Howe stated that he was down in the mouth with his portrayal in both the film and the Michael Lewis book. Howe was featured as a stubborn traditionalist one who refused to follow Beane's plans and a figurehead who acquiesced while Beane ran the A's from the clubhouse.

Further, he added, it was unfortunate that Beane's lack of regard for him was that obvious.
