Re: Do you think..........
I don't think I can, like any profession, coaching/team management is a field where you need to build up a certain level of education and experience. However, as a fan I have every right to be critical of the franchise and even question moves from time to time. Like art, sports is subjective. Basically there is no one right way to do anyting. Sure, we could sit here all day and type nothing but praise for the team. But instead of serious debate and insights, we would have a cult like membership unwilling to express their opinions fearing they won't appear to be enough of a true fan. I come here to complain, rant, cheer, and analyze. Without those quailities, this board would be useless.

Do you think you can be a coach, GM, player, or owner in the NBA/NFL? I just came from reading the Saintsreport forum and also I read this forum, I wonder if people really believe they can not only do the organization's job, but do it better.
And if so, why not try to do it?
I mean if you can get a better Small Forward for the Hornets and a better Cornerback for the Saints, assuming each team needs them, which if they did, I would think that each front office would know it. But, even then there might not be any better ones to get.
I just cheer for the Saints, Hornets, and Southern. If they win, they win. If they lose, then they lose. Either way, I will just enjoy the season.
No, I couldn't work in the sport industry. As a consumer I can comment and question the product I am buying, the same way people complain about movies they hate or TV shows they find unwatchable. I work in TV/film, in art depts . . . I heard people trash the shows I've worked on in public in a theater or at a party, not knowing I've worked on that film or show. It's part of my business, something we fully take on when you enter a field like this. Remember that the next time you think a TV show or film sucks, if you feel people in the sports business can do their job without critical judgement surely you know that the people working in entertainment have also dedicated their lives to their art and have years of experience that most people off the street couldn't just duplicate.
Maybe I read this thread the wrong way. But, who wants to come to a site where we are just happy with the present situation without any critical thought in our post? Most people can't do other people's jobs. I would be lost in a court room, ER, or business office. Yet, we have the freedom to have an opinion on the work others produce. Without having to walk in that person's shoes.
I just hope the Hornets win as well, that is all we want here anyway. I just don't think it makes anyone less of fan if they wants to express their opinion, even if that means blindly supporting the team.
