As a German I would argue these thesis are not as crazy as they might look in the first place.

Check todays Andy Deighton´s guest blog :) Very cool :) 
Agile retrospectives are great for energising and unifying a Scrum team, but what benefits do they offer the facilitator? Andy Deighton shares his tips.

Great post Andy, thanks!

Silence can be a great tool. Being silent gives space to team members, allows them to think deeply without being disturbed. It’s up to the team, not the facilitator, to create a shared understanding on what has happened and to decide what to do.

During the last several weeks, I have put a lot of thought into the statement: “Scrum Master is a part-time job!” I wanted to share some of my ideas here, and explain why I believe this approach is a Scrum Anti-Pattern.
Luis Goncalves explains the amount of work that is required from ScrumMasters. The intent is to explain why Part time Scrum Master is a bad idea.

Story
Tagline
My name is Luis Gonçalves and I am an Agile Coach, Co-Author, Speaker and a Blogger
Introduction
I have been working in the software industry since 2003, being an Agile practitioner since 2007. I have a lot of experience in integrating sequential projects phases like localization into an Agile Framework and pioneering Agile adoption at different companies and different contexts.

I am a co-author of a book called: "Getting Value Out of Agile Retrospectives". 

I have a technical background yet my passion lies at the Management side where I am a Management 3.0 passionate. 

I am a co-founder of a MeetUp group in Munich, Germany called High Performing Teams. Me and my colleagues created this group with the vision of "Define the future of Management and Leadership" . We are aiming to collaboratively generate several ideas/theories and try them out in our professional life.

I like to write and share ideas with the world and this made me a passionate blogger. I get inspiration from my professional life and from all books that I read every week. You can follow my blog on: http://lmsgoncalves.com/
