    I know, I work with people who think that way. Like they are proud of how annoying they are.

    I know many on here wanted Lowry fired a couple of years back and I didn't understand it then either. While his return unit's have been up and down, we've always had good kicking and coverage units. Over the past many years we've given up significantly less return TD's than we have created. I don't see how that can be a bad thing. Then you can argue that the other team gets more return yards, but I'd personally rather give them more yards and let the defence get a stop, then give up a return TD. Nothing is more like a kick in the nuts for defence players, than a return TD.

    And if Munchak wanted to get rid of him first chance he got, why didn't he do it before this season?

    Another senseless coaching staff move to appear we're doing something. We were quite good on special teams this year; very damn good. Good luck to Lowry, he should always be a legend in Nashville

    A reporter once asked Harry Sinden (Longtime GM of the Boston Bruins) why he fired coaches so often. His response was that eventually players tune a coach out no matter how good he is. Then said "It would be like having the same teacher in school year after year."

    Looks like Munch, right or wrong, is following the same school of thought.

    And you're calling other people childish?

    It's really not that simple. All fanbases piss and moan. Ours is at a peak at the moment, sure. But that's because we're seeing an awful product on the field and the moves (or non-moves) being made lately do not inspire any confidence whatsoever. No one is complaining just for the sake of complaining. We as fans dedicate a significant portion of our life (both time and money) to our teams. So yeah, we get upset when things are going down the crapper and we aren't making any significant moves to fix the situation.

    If every fan followed your logic here then everyone would be constantly switching favorite teams. Because eventually every organization makes some missteps. Believe me, you are in the extreme minority if you always like what is being done with your team. Which seems to be what you are implying. Otherwise you would've "got a new team to root for" by now.

    Also, this would be a pretty boring forum if everyone was just like "ALRIGHT!!! WHAT A GREAT MOVE!!! (high five)" all the time.

    Not trying to lash out at your specifically. I just CANNOT STAND the "Well if you don't like it go root for another team" logic. It's the epitome of childishness and close-mindedness in my book.

    I seriously can't wait until the "being a nerd is cool" thing dies. It's pathetic. Just a few weeks ago I saw a FB post from an ex-GF from high school. She was super popular (prom queen, etc.) and infinitely "cool" (by high schooler standards anyway). Anyway, she posts a pic of herself wearing her new Star Wars shirt because she just LOVES STARS WARS SOOOOOO MUCH ZOMG!!!!

    I've known this girl for almost 15 years and never even heard her mention Star Wars before.
