The Ethics Behind Calling for a Coach's Head

I first want to state how much I appreciate all the work that goes into MCM. I read it regularly, and find it to be a great site. I was listening to talk radio, and a debate arose about the morality behind calling for a coach's job. I wanted to bring the debate to MCM because frankly I think it is interesting and relevant.

Side 1. An NFL HC or GM is a public figure, and is subject to public criticism. If he does not want to be on the hot seat, take a job at Sears and you wont be on the hot seat. The fans pay good money, and are entitled to a competitive product. By purchasing a ticket or watching on television they get a voice, and are allowed to have an opinion.

Side 2. Never talk about another man's job/salary or woman. (Edit the sentence to make it politically correct) Munch, Fish, whoever, have families and coaching staffs and are deserving of privacy and should be afforded the opportunity to read the paper, go on the internet without people calling for their jobs.

Disclaimer: I am from New York City. Went to HS in the Bronx, people are just flat out hostile, and have no shame in going after people's jobs.

My argument: Firing a coach is not healthy. Sustainability, consistency, and continuity are the goals of every business/organization. I think we can speculate about change, talk about change, without trending #firejoegirardi #firemunch #firedooley or whatever the next trend is. This is the offseason, and I am curious what you all think about our ethical position as bloggers.

Thanks.
