This speaks to the fact that this situation is inherently broken. Managers of sports teams are usually, ultimately have to achieve results to remain in their jobs. If they don't, they start costing someone money, either the owner or the federation. When they start costing someone money, they are fired. In this situation, that isn't the case. Berhalter loses? The fans from the other teams still buy the tickets and drink the beer and eat the popcorn at the stadium, filling the coffers of the federation. Berhalter's results matter not one bit to the Federation's bottom line and in that way, outside of failure to qualify for the next WC, his job is secure until the end of his contract. What I love is the fact that he's already grumbling about the questions just like Arena and Klinsmann did before him. "You people just don't understand the process, and I don't need to be responsible to make you understand. You aren't worth my time." Granted it's a tough job, getting players together for a short period, and not always all the best players who should be at your disposal. There's a reason we all wanted Tata, because we knew he was going to be up to the job. Berhalter is showing clearly that he ain't.
