    Fast firings

    Think of any others?


    The New York Islanders fired GM Neil Smith on Tuesday after six weeks on the job. Other quick-trigger moves:
    Fired as football coach at University of Alabama in 2003 before coaching a single game. News reports claimed he had paid for private dances at a topless bar in Florida.
    Fired by New York Rangers GM Glen Sather in January 2003, 54 games into the season. Rangers were league's highest-paid team but were last in the Atlantic Division.
    The long-time college coach was fired as coach of the San Antonio Spurs in 1992 after a 9-11 start. "I'm 62 years old," Tarkanian said. "I probably ought to be out watering the flowers."
    Fired as manager of the Cincinnati Reds less than two months into the 1993 season by rookie GM Jim Bowden, who delivered the news by telephone after a 1-6 road trip that left the team at 20-24.

    The Arizona Diamondbacks fired manager Backman on Nov. 5, 2004 four days after hiring him after press reports revealed that Backman had been arrested twice and filed for bankruptcy in the previous year.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    George O'Leary says, "Hi"

    Oh, wait...he "resigned."
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
