Is It Okay to Quit On a Coach In Professional Sports?

Jeremy Pike@JeremyNPikeCorrespondent IDecember 4, 2008

Do you believe that it is okay for a professional sports team to quit on their coach? If so, in what sort of a case would it be okay?

I'm of the opinion that the players are playing for more than themselves. They are playing for the team, their coaches, their teammates, and their fans. They should have some sort of pride in themselves to give it their all, no matter what.

Obviously, not everyone in sports, including the NFL, shares that same opinion. See Adam Jones, Chad Javon Ocho Cinco (Really? Sheesh...), Plaxico Burress, Cedric Benson...

The reason I bring this up is because I have heard some fellow Bills fans espousing the idea that the Bills should quit on Dick Jauron to get him fired. I'm torn on the coaching matter, which I'll hit on in another article later.

But really, is quitting when you are a professional athlete an appropriate thing to do? Doesn't that go against all competitiveness? I want to hear everyone's opinion from every sport, not just us NFL fans. Soccer/football, basketball, racing, baseball, if you're a fan of a professional sport, give me your opinion!
