Re: The termination of Dan Smith....likely BullSh$t
are you trying to say in a nice way that it looks like the time to start replacing people from the top down to fee and has recent hires -- just look at ALL the changes that have taken place within the athletic department over the last 3 years -- some changes yes, but not almost the whole staff -- yes it is time for changes on some of the hanger ones there still is some good people that have been on staff before fee that has done a very good job but there is some that have changed on how they do their job to be one of the team of failure -- lets start on sept 14th to make the changes that will help all of us including the school
The single fact this occurred within a month of a new manager, smacks of cr@p
We ll never know the exact reason
all I know is this.
Dan was never a homer, he was the BEST PA announcer in the Big West, he was clever yet respectful and didnt try to be a homer
Having heard the other PAs in the Big West, Dan stood out.
The UCSB PA is a total buffoon, as those that have been there can attest
Dan was the PA for the BWCT and for a reason, due to his professional and knowledgeable skills
Perhaps he was asked to 'spice it up' and didnt comply
Perhaps he made some non PC 'asides' or maybe he's got some 'incident' in his past. For that long of a tenure it wouldnt surprise
Perhaps he just disagreed with some new different demands
This smacks of 'finding a way' to get rid of someone.
It s easy now in workplaces to 'manufacturer' a rationale to get rid of someone if
The other thing I know is the following
Fee is PC to a tee and makes the branding of Fee a priority, u can see from how he tries to manipulate social media
An admin that hasn't been able to cut it in the product on the courts would not surprise they try to brand and image manipulate because, well, it s easy to try to 'slogan' your way out of your poor product, not that that strategy tends to work. And admins response and attitude to those that see through the BS is often 'you just dont get it'.... ie insulting.....that is the attitude we got from Mrs Doubtfire on the Pete statue
