    Not surprised. An employer can let people go anyway they so deemed.

    Yep, it’s the easy way out.

    I hope whoever the next coach is works out for quite awhile because the word is going to get out that contracts don’t mean a thing in Tampa. Which will make for getting a good season veteran coach a little bit harder when the vacancy arises.

    Dude; he still gets three more years of multiple millions. What world do you live in? How about Lovie not excepting the money because he didn’t do what he told the Glazer’s he would when he was hired.

    So after the GM Press Conference does this end the thought that the Glazer’s weren’t classey enough? I support our GM and I know he will find the right people. Go Bucs!

    Before everyone puts in their two cents about what they think happened, listen to Licht’s explanation on why it went down over the phone.

    Big deal. Over the phone – Lovie wanted that way. Declined to meet with the owners. Not sure why Pewter Report is intent on making the Bucs look bad on this situation. Smith will still get his $10 million whether he was fired over the phone or if Glazer had to fly in from Palm Beach to do it himself.

    What a classless organization the Glazer family are. They dismissed Dungy in the middle of the night and now fire Smith over the phone. They don’t know the meaning of dignity and class. Smith was not the long term solution for the Bucs, but the man had dignity and integrity. The Bucs ownership do not. Why would anyone want to come to Tampa and face the revolving door the is the Bucs.
