    Default Why did vinny resign?

    What do you think did it?

    The Skins record?

    The 30,000 empty seats in FedEx?

    The fan revolt?

    I really don't care why, the bottom line is that he's gone. Just wanted to hear the thoughts

    Because it was that, or be fired.

    Obviously.

    No way this was 'voluntary'.

    The ultimatum from Danny Boy was given. Didn't I read some where that Snyder was asked why Cerrato wasn't kept around as a part of the change? I think his reply was the team wanted to go with something new or something to that effect.

    He resigned like Steve Spurrier resigned. Don't let the door hit you in the *** on the way out!

    The rumor is Shanahan wouldn't coach the team with Vinny as GM. So naturally Snyder whispered in his ear that it would be best if he stepped down, or he would publicly emasculate him.

    1. He was fired.

    2. Because Shanny said he wouldn't come to Washington with Cerrato in place.

    ...just my read on the situation...

    the difference is that Spurrier still had cred as a college coach and got another job.

    Vinny will be picking up trash for Waste Mangement Inc. on Monday morning

    Maybe vinny can get a job at Easterns.

    Hell, they've hired every other Skin to advertise.

    More interesting is the other thread that leads one to think vinny is getting hush money for one reason or another

    It's never easy with the danny. He's like an incompetant JR Ewing

    Easy, because Dannyboy's PI found and destroyed the negatives.

    Sarge- I keep seeing you refer to 30,000 empty seats at Fedex. Watching the games on tv I never saw that. I was hoping to but didn't.

    When did that happen?

    Saints game for one. The Post even made mention of it. It looked on TV like at least 1/3'd or more of the upper ring was empty as well as about 1/2 of the middle ring. Figuring each ring holds 30,000.

    From the few shots they had on TV, it looked bad. The danny probably forbid Fox from showing too many empty stadium shots

    Sarge: The upper bowl was empty.
    in my row alone, I'd say there were 10-15 empty seats. Most sections were like that. I snuck down to 207 in the 2nd half and the 100 section was pretty full.

    Maybe it was b/c the people in the uppers wised up and went to the lowers as it got colder. Not sure.

    What I can also tell you is that there were a lot, I mean alot of Saint fans there. Maybe not as many as the Steeler fans that showed in 2008, but more than you regularly see when we play the Cowboys, Giants or Eagles.

    Didn't take other fans into account.

    THe Post said they called attendence at 87,000, but it looked more like 53,000

    With Vinny gone, I may just hold onto the season tickets. Depends what goes down between here and April

    Now that Vinny is gone, it is time to move on and look to next year which could very well be promising.

    I don't buy that. If it was a 100,000 seat stadium, then maybe.
    I'd say by just guessing memory there was around 70,000 + there.
