[QUOTE]Prairiemike won't like that you posted this. I actually made a similar comment yesterday in the game thread only to be told that I might or might not be an idiot, but that may take was, because every team plays every week and every team takes a beating.

Did you suggest they quit the coach, generally, or for a specifc reason(s)?
I have a friend that lives near there, in Bowling Green (next state, same culture) and the people and the way they think, as he has described, would be hard to ignore for a proud, accomplished, professional minority man who grew up in Florida or CA or Chicago or just about any place else, where the racism is present, but not nearly so ominipresent, pronounced and proactive (though we know there are lots of great people living in the region, as well). Titans players have said as much.
Maybe the quitting is for a composite of all the afformentioned reasons and more.
Re. the Given's aspect, BB made a mistake of forcing Ted Johnson to practice and play with a concusssion because he thought a player was hurt too much and questioned his toughness (big mistake, TJ gave it all, every play, then suffered permanent brain damage trying to save his spot). But BB didn't keep the inury a secret from TJ, as wrong as he was. If I am palayer, I am ticked by what BB did, but incindiary about what Fisher did.
