Are you offended by Fisher wearing a Manning jersey?

  1. Yes. And he should be fired for doing it.

  2. Yes. It was bad timing and in poor taste but he should not be fired for it.

    35.0%
  3. No. It was just self-depreciating humor at a charity event.

    He's actually got his job on the line.

    You've got...well nothing. Don't get shirty because a coach agrees the team sucks after you all get shirty when he sugar coats it.

    Gunny, Gunny, Gunny ... really?

    He's a payed employee of the organization. When you're earning millions of dollars to do a job (win games, motivate the team, etc.) things like this don't set well (nor should they). I would expect the same kind of backlash if I was to bash the hospital I work for in such a public way. Jeff's actions were completely stupid, tactless and only stoked the already raging fire.

    You're just as bad as Gloat.

    It was for charity, I thought it was ballsy and kinda funny. It's nothing like a Bud guy wearing a Coors hat, nothing whatsoever. This would not even matter if we were 4-2 or 5-1 but since we are a white hot ball of suck this year and most of you guys are already mad at Fisher it's waaaaay easier to make a big deal out of it.

    I guess the lesson here is it's way easier to get things spun in a negative light when you're 0-6.

    I suppose that's why the National media also grabbed a hold of this story? Bottom line is Fisher ticked off a lot of people including fans and some players. Call it ballsy if you want, but the timing of this stunt at yes a Charity event was awful. 0-6 is bad enough, but right after one of the worst drubbings to an NFL team in history took place is just plain stupid. The Titans are the laughing stock of the NFL right now. People are arguing about who is worst? The Titans or the Bucs. We have "Jersey-gate" and "Reese-gate" going on.

    Forgive me if I don't blow this whole thing off just because it happened at a charity event.

    You do realise if you bashed for your job outside of work they probably wouldn't give a crap. 99% of people in this world rag on their job.

    If you were caught on TV with a t-shirt of another hospital, they don't care.

    If you were to say on TV 'My job sucks, my boss is an a/hole etc etc' then you'd probably get sacked, as would Fisher, if he said anything to that degree.
