+1. Couldn't (and haven't) said it better myself. Just look at the boards after the last RB loss. Believe me, you'll get whiplash reading posts here if Richie gets the job and we go on a losing streak. I like Richie, as a layman I think he's ready to coach and I wish him well and a coaching position in MLS. I want Richie to be our coach if and only if we get a competent SD/TD (a BIG if) and he wants him to be our coach. I respect the opinions of people on these boards about Richie's prowess but those opinions (like mine) are completely subjective, about how he instills this or brings out that, and they will vanish into the ether at the first sign of a pattern of poor performance by the team next year. Otherwise we're just repeating the mistakes of the past and we shouldn't complain if we get those same results.
