    HAPPY DAY!!! I was worried this wouldn't happen. I am sorry that the man had to lose his job, but it is a business and if you don't produce you get cut. It's true on the field and should be true off it (at least in theory).

    Yeah, 4 years is enough to at least make yourself a legitimate contender in MLS. His team never threatened during his tenure, and it was time to go. Really, it was inevitable with new management.

    What a relief! I thought the Rapids were going to put us through another season of terrible soccer. Can't wait to welcome someone new. Hopefully they will be someone we can get excited about and support.

    Just heard from the FO and then saw this thread... this is great news for 2005, especially for pet rocks everywhere. ;)

    Couldn't agree more with Rei above... nobody likes the idea of someone losing their livelihood. But if the results aren't there then changes have to be made.

    Hallelujah...... Maybe the Rapidos can get Jaques Santini now that he left Spurs. We have such good luck with those French guys.

    ** huge sigh of relief **

    Man, I was sweating it. I had a deep-rooted fear that, as Bonji said, they were going to put us through another season of Hanki. Whew.

    I'd put in a second vote for Osorio. I've been hearing about him for a few years now. It sounds as if the players like him and he runs a good practice session. Whatever, whoever; It won't be Hanki. Good luck to him in his next endeavor, wherever that may be.

    Oh happy day!
    When Hanki walked.
    Oh yes he walked.
    When Hanki walked.
    He washed my funk away!

    Good news:
    Stadium bond passed
    Hankinson gone

    Who will be the replacement? My guess is Counce is safe, and will be the one who decides what players will be protected. Hopefully they can get a new coach on time to start scouting for SI's.

    You guys might also think of stealing John Murphy from Crew. He was the Revs 2nd assistant, GK coach, and I think unofficially the chief college scout. Many in C'bus give him the credit for the Crew's turnaround this year. He is a very able guy.

    So the Crew aren't going to keep him around?

    Now we're getting good lip service out of the top office.

    Let's hope this "needing" to win is really the feeling in the front office. If it is we might start to see some positive changes.

    Wow, that just made my day. Got the Rapidfire email too.

    This is one of those "What took you so long?" moments. I'm not sure anyone in the MLS is surprised by this.

    Looking forward to a new direction.

    This is great news for the Rapids. Hopefully we will shoot for the stars with our next coaching pick, rather than aim for mediocrity and be dissapointed when we can't even reach that level.

    I suggest that we get Henderson to retire and make him coach, or make Balboa coach. No more MLS burnouts.
