Voth: Rivera is Staying

We turned the cream of the crop away by forcing a coach on any incoming GM. At that point, you're picking between a guy you know and a bunch of other second-tier guys not in consideration elsewhere. Add to that the fact that we're just starting our interview process next week after other teams are already on their second and third interviews. Richardson knows him and he's not going to get uppity with JR as he continues his bad decision making.

Beane is a very real possibility at this point. Right up our alley.

I doubt we're turning anyone away with this decision since it looks like all the other GM jobs are about to be filled.

Gettleman is only talking to us. Ross doesn't seem to be the leading candidate anywhere.

U losers talking about jumping ship - do us a favor and find another team to pull for ASAP.

Go root for the steelers or cowboys like the rest of the trashy/ghetto people do

Do me a favor and suck it, you don't control how I root for teams or not.

hiring beane would be putting a nail in the franchises coffin. you do that and the losing culture remains. it's an acceptance of the status quo.

Unless JR's changed, JR's basically the GM no matter who's hired.

One thing to consider is maybe Beane & Rivera will share the responsibilities.

Beane handles the cap, business operations, etc

Rivera handles the football players and football decisions.

Might work.

They gotta get better scouting though or it won't matter.

So its official. Sigh, really hope I'm wrong about Rivera staying being a terrible idea.

make me.

i can't honestly believe so many just accept or even defend a losing status quo.

"if you don't love our losing team, go find some other team"

meh....

I'm never betraying my hometown team, but if we promote Beane we deserve years of failure

In fairness, if you don't give Cam and RR 3 yrs....you simply won't know what you could have.

RR is like Cam...growing. You don't want to do the initial work on your watch and let him bloom elsewhere.

Must make postseason next year regardless of injury
