2. The reaction from some fans- hard to believe anyone either A. wanted to keep Howson or B. Are surprised by the move. The writing was on the wall a long time ago that Howson's days were numbered.
3. That this thread is four pages long only 30 min after the announcement. That shows there is still some life left in the fan base.
No one should be surprised or disappointed. The guy has had 6 years to build a winner and look where the Jackets currently are in the standings. Why keep him around just because it is a short season? Make the change that is needed and start working toward a better future for this team right now!
