Default Why dropping the clutch isnt good on FWD vehicles (Saturn)

Topic explains most of it, But anyways I woke up on saturday morning and there was a puddle of transmission fluid on the driveway. So I pulled the car into the garage lifted it in the air and started taking it apart, once I got the cradle and transmission out I found the culprit, hole in tranny and missing diferential pin. So $275 for a transmission and $175 for a new clutch I got the car back together, but I still need to get the clutch bleed.

(Note, pics taken with phone)
