All signs said Sparano had to go: 1. PLayers stop playing hard for him 2. Plays not to lose (lost too many game as a result) 3. Team lacks speed, guess who picks the players 4. Tired of a cheer leader on the side line 5. Doesn't overide bad play calling I for one hope for a lock out next year. I won't renew NFL Sunday Ticket to watch a Sparano coached team - three years has been too much. I hope Ross likes empty stadiums, low season ticket sales, and a losing season again. Ross had another choice, all he had to do was promote Mike Nolan to HC.
