Win or lose, we are told by the Front Office (and by a good many of the faithfull on the MB), you are getting your money's worth in ENTERTAINMENT! Of course, obviously this is not the feeling that many Texans fans share.

Since this season is all but in the can, I would present the idea of making REAL entertainment for the fans for the remainder of the games.

Have a contest where fans vote from their own fan base to assign to each remaining game a HC, DC, OC, etc. THAT will be ENTERTAINMENT at its best (at least for this season)! That will stimulate renewed interest in an otherwise bleak outlook. That will sell tickets. Curiosity will be aroused. Who knows, we may have a great motivational "walk-on" coach right within our own ranks..........maybe a Vince Lombardi reincarnate.!.:)

"While the giants of the English game bankroll their dominance with funds from rich tycoons, the Kent-based club instead has been a guinea pig in an intriguing football experiment which satisfied every football fan's desire: to have real power over how their football team is run. It meant supporters would no longer have to make do with just shouting "get him off!" into the air, or only being able to impart their tactical wisdom to anyone in the pub who would listen.

Instead, fans could now join a website - MyFootballClub.co.uk (MyFC) - which would let them have the final say on transfer dealings, major club decisions and, most enticingly of all, the chance to set tactics and pick the players in the team. All for just 35 a year."

Very interesting, SM. Too bad management ultimately never let it happen as advertised.
