So if someone gets fired before the 8:30 pm game ends, we have to make a sub pick? or, does that pick just get forfeited?

I thought of that too after I posted my first response. Let's put the deadline right before the NFL games start on Sunday.

Another rule I forgot to point out originally. To earn points, the coach, manager or GM must be removed from the organization completely.  So if one of the interim coaches goes back to his old position as a coordinator, you do not get points. If this rule makes you want to change your picks, I will allow it.

10 point pick - Steve Spagnuolo ( St. Louis - NFL )
9 point pick - Randy Cunneyworth ( Montreal - NHL )
8 point pick - Pierre Gauthier ( Montreal - NHL )
7 point pick - Scott Arniel ( Columbus - NHL )
6 point pick - Brent Sutter ( Calgary - NHL )
5 point pick - Jack Capuano ( NY Islanders - NHL )
4 point pick - Chan Gailey ( Buffalo - NFL )
3 point pick - Joe Sacco ( Colorado - NHL )
2 point pick - Andy Reid ( Philadelphia - NFL )
1 point pick - Jerry Jones ( Dallas - NFL ) I'm thinking ( OK OK - hoping ) that Jerry Jones finally hires a real GM to run the team thus removing himself from the position. Of course - Jones will still be the owner so this pick might not be allowed under clawmaster's rules. My alternate 1 pointer is: Leslie Frazier ( Minnesota - NFL )

Quade already was fired. Pick somebody else. The New Cubs manager is Dale Sveum. It's his first year so he probably won't get fired.

Hymie and benlen also had the same top two picks. Ben didn't have Spags first name right but I knew what he meant.

The key guy on my list is #6 pick Andy Reid. I expect my #7 and #8 picks to get fired. Reid might hang on to his job.

After listening to Pierre Gauthier today, Randy Cunneyworth is as good as gone as Montreal Canadiens head coach as soon as the season ends, if not sooner.

That prick actually apologized for not hiring a bilingual coach, and then said that that would be part of the hiring process moving forward.

Cunneyworth doesn't speak french.

Fuck I hope Gauthier goes too. What a kowtowing, job-saving little weasel. Apologizing to the racist Montreal fans and media? Are you kidding me?

This is a reason why I was curious that some of you picked Reid.  I don't see the Eagles kicking him to the curb completely even if he does eventually go.

The tourney lasts the entire calendar year. Andy Reid and/or Norv Turner could be fired during next season.

Well, my time in first place was short lived. Literally less than two hours. And considering my Reid, Turner, and likely Jim Caldwell picks (all high ones) probably won't come to pass, that'll probably be the last time I see first.

Oh, and stingmark cheats.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have fired coach Scott Arniel, a source confirmed to ESPN.com. Assistant coach Todd Richards takes over on an interim basis until the end of the season.

The Blue Jackets (11-25-5) have an NHL-low 27 points this season.

Only dead pool. We'll add the deathday next year to this pool.

Another rule I forgot to point out originally. To earn points, the coach, manager or GM must be removed from the organization completely.  So if one of the interim coaches goes back to his old position as a coordinator, you do not get points. If this rule makes you want to change your picks, I will allow it. 


I will switch my Mel Tucker pick with Avery Johnson (Nets)

Mel Tucker might not be retained as a coordinator with Mike Mularkey being hired as the new Jax head coach. Tucker has already interviewed in Minnesota about a coordinator's job. His status with the Jags is still up in the air.

Unprecedented.  I'm leading in both the fired coaches pool and the death pool.  It's still early, but I think I should get a bonus reward if I win both.

Maybe a Schadenfreud (sp?) award for rooting for other folks' misfortunes.

I totally thought I picked him too and was shocked when I came to see how many points I got and found that I had not picked him.

I think the Loafs were doing pretty well around January 1st, which sort of makes sense why so many of us didn't take him this year.

No team has looked worse in the last two weeks and fallen apart more from the start of the season than the Portland Trail Blazers, and coach Nate McMillan has paid the price.

Portland has fired coach Nate McMillan, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.

There are not a lot of details, but McMillan was considered on the hot seat. In the last two days Portland had been blown out by Indiana and the Knicks and had been in a free-fall that had taken them out of the playoffs in the West.

Portland spent the trade deadline day getting rid of salary and setting themselves up for a rebuild on the fly around LaMarcus Aldridge. Clearly they wanted someone else to coach that team.

Nobody had Silas but the Montreal Canadiens hired Marc Bergevin as GM. Bergevin will soon fire Randy Cunneyworth and name his own head coach.

Cunneyworth was returned to his position of assistant coach right after Bergevin got the job. He is still with the Habs organization...for now. Not sure what the call on this one is.

I don't think anybody picked him but the Broncos just canned GM Brian Xanders.

from the Associated Press:

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Brian Xanders is out as general manager of the Denver Broncos after three years in that role and with a year left on his contract.


Broncos boss John Elway said the decision to part ways was made in a meeting between the two men Monday.

Elway said in a statement that Xanders' "hard work and dedication played a major role in the recent success of our team, most notably last season's division title and playoff win."

Xanders joined the Broncos as assistant GM under coach Mike Shanahan in 2008 and was promoted to general manager following Josh McDaniels' hiring as coach a year later. But Xanders never had final say on roster decisions under Shanahan, McDaniels or Elway, who took over as vice-president of football operations last year.

BREAKING NEWS !!!!!!!!!!!

The Blackhawks just announced that they have fired...........................Assistant Coach Mike Haviland. :tongue:



Chicago GM Stan Bowman is denying the rumour of Head Coach Joel Quenneville heading to Montreal.

from tsn.ca:

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin will apparently have to look outside of Chicago to find a new head coach, as speculation about current Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville possibly being available don't look to be true.

Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman told the Chicago Tribune on Monday that while he doesn't like to address rumours, Quenneville - who is under contract through the 2013-14 seaosn - would be returning to the club next season.

The Tribune reports that Quenneville had disagreements with management during the season, when director of player development Barry Smith was on the ice with the team working on their struggling power play.

Smith continued the role until the playoffs, but did not travel with the club, after a reported confrontation between Quenneville and team management.

Rumours of Quenneville leaving Chicago picked up when Bergevin left the team to become the Canadiens' GM last week and news broke of former Blackhawks executive Rick Dudley's imminent departure from Toronto to Montreal.

"Joel is a great coach," forward Patrick Sharp told the Tribune. "It doesn't surprise me that those rumors are out there. I think a lot of teams would like to have him, but we're all happy to play for him, that's for sure."

Looks like Tom Renney is on his way out in Edmonton:


from tsn.ca:


Tom Renney's time as head coach of the Edmonton Oilers appears to be done after two seasons.

According to a team tweet, Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini has announced the club will not renew Renney's contract.

After finishing the season with the NHL's second- worst record, the Oilers decided to part ways with the 10th coach in their franchise's history.

Hired in 2010, Renney led the Oilers to a 25-45-12 record in his first season with the club. Last season, the team finished 32-40-10 and once again found themselves in last place in the league.

Prior to his time in Edmonton, Renney served as a head coach of the New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks.

The Cleveland Indians fired manager Manny Acta on Thursday, ending his tenure after the team collapsed from contention this season.

The Indians announced the decision in a prepared release, naming Sandy Alomar Jr. as their interim manager for the final six games of the season.

"The Cleveland Indians would like to thank Manny Acta for everything he has done for the organization in his three seasons as our manager," Indians executive vice president and general manager Chris Antonetti said in the release. "Manny's passion for the game, positive attitude and tremendous knowledge of baseball helped guide us to a number of high points during his tenure.

"Managerial changes are never easy or taken lightly, but as we approached the end of the season and turned our attention to assessing the year, we determined a change was necessary."

Acta, hired by Cleveland in 2009 after two losing seasons as Washington's manager, couldn't stop the Indians from falling to last place in the AL Central. They were within three games of first place on July 21 before losing 21 of 25 and eventually sliding all the way back to last.

Acta posted a 214-266 record in his three seasons with the Indians, which entered Thursday tied for last in the AL Central at 65-91.

"I have great respect for Manny and appreciate the effort he exhibited not only leading our team, but also the contributions he made in our community over the past three years," said Indians CEO Paul Dolan said in the release. "I fully support Chris' decision to make this change and am confident that he will lead a tireless search to find the right individual to lead the club to our ultimate goal of winning the World Series."

Maybe he got hired after January 1st? I don't remember. If it was past the cutoff none of us could have picked him.

Weird, although a brand new hire for a mostly-successful franchise wouldn't have been a prime choice to be fired for most, I suppose.

Yes he quit. He was not fired.

So DFG, you are shit out of luck. DFG had Tracy as his one point pick. Only guy to pick Tracy. Because Tracy resigned and was not fired, DFG misses out on two points.

The Carolina Panthers relieved general manager Marty Hurney of his duties, owner Jerry Richardson announced Monday. The move comes on the heels of a loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, a fourth consecutive defeat that dropped the Panthers to 1-5.

Guillen fired as manager of last-place Marlins
By STEVEN WINE (AP Sports Writer) | The Associated Press – 3 hours ago

MIAMI (AP) -- The lingering backlash caused by Ozzie Guillen's praise of Fidel Castro contributed to another Miami Marlins managerial shakeup Tuesday.

Guillen was fired after only one year with the team, undone by too many losses and one too many ill-advised remarks.

A promising season began to derail in April with his laudatory comments about Cuba's former leader. Six months later, the episode was a factor in the decision to fire Guillen, Marlins officials said.

''Let's face it. It was not a positive for the team; it was not a positive for Ozzie,'' president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said. ''It was a disappointment, no doubt about it.''

A lousy team didn't help, either. The Marlins took high hopes into their new ballpark following an offseason spending spree but finished last in the NL East at 69-93, their worst record since 1999.

Miami's next manager will be the fifth for owner Jeffrey Loria since early 2010. The latest change comes even though Marlins still owe Guillen $7.5 million for the three years remaining on his contract.

''We all felt we had a pretty good ballclub coming out of spring training, and we just didn't play well,'' Beinfest said. ''We all share in this. This is not a fun day for me, certainly not for Ozzie or Jeffrey or anybody involved. This is an organizational failure. But we felt like we needed to make this change so we could move forward.''

There had speculation that Beinfest's job might also be in jeopardy, but he'll continue in his current role. The search for a new manager has just begun, he said.

''We could definitely use some stability in the dugout,'' said Beinfest, who has been with the Marlins since Loria bought the team in 2002. ''We're looking for a winner. At times we've done a better job of identifying that individual. Other times we haven't. We're going to try to find the right guy this time.''

In spring training, Guillen touted his team as well balanced and ready to win. But a dismal June took the Marlins out of contention for good, and management dismantled the roster in July.

The season went sour from the start. Guillen's comments praising Castro in a magazine interview angered Cuban Americans, who make up a large segment of the Marlins' fan base. The Venezuelan manager apologized repeatedly at a news conference for his remarks, then began serving a five-game suspension only five games into his stay with the team.

''That was a very, very hard situation for me and the people around me,'' Guillen said in September. ''It was maybe the worst thing I ever did.''

Marlins officials believe the damage was lasting. They blame disappointing attendance at the new ballpark in part over lingering fan resentment about the Castro comments.

The decision to fire Guillen came on the eve of the World Series, nearly three weeks after the Marlins' final game, following a lengthy assessment of what went wrong this year.

''Everybody wanted to take a step back,'' Beinfest said. ''It was really an organizational decision.''

Guillen was returning Tuesday from a vacation in Spain and was informed of his dismissal by phone by Beinfest in a brief conversation.

Guillen left the Chicago White Sox a year ago after eight seasons. Some 24 hours later he sealed a four-year deal with the Marlins, where he was a third-base coach for the 2003 World Series championship team.

''I feel like I'm back home,'' he said at the time.

Loria traded two minor league players to obtain Guillen and gave him a team-record $10 million, four-year deal. But by June, the Marlins had fallen below .500 for good.

Despite the frustrations of losing, the talkative, opinionated, profane Guillen kept his cool for the most part, and he repeatedly accepted responsibility for the team's performance. Mindful of speculation his job might be in jeopardy, he said two weeks before the end of the season he was glad he rented a house in Miami rather than buying when he took the job.

''With the job I did this year, do you think I deserve to be back here?'' Guillen said on the final day of the season. ''Of course not. But I'm not the only one. ... Let's start from the top. The front office failed, Ozzie failed, the coaching staff failed, the players failed, everybody failed.''

In December, the Marlins signed All-Stars Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell to contracts worth a combined $191 million. But Bell was a bust as the closer, and the Marlins were plagued by poor hitting, especially in the clutch.

Bell was traded last week to Arizona.

In the Marlins' 20 seasons they have reached the postseason only twice, as wild-card teams in 1997 and 2003. Both times they won the World Series.

Under Loria they have usually been among baseball's thriftiest teams. With attendance and revenue falling short of projections this year, the spending binge of last offseason ago is unlikely to be repeated.

''We need to spend some time redefining ourselves in conjunction with a new manager,'' Beinfest said. ''I can't tell you exactly what the Marlin way is today.''

Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown has been fired after a 1-4 start to the season, a source tells ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne.



It is not known yet who will take over for him, but a source indicated that it will either be assistant coach Bernie Bickerstaff or Chuck Person on an interim basis.



Sources had said earlier Friday that his job would be in jeopardy if the team did not perform well on its upcoming six-game homestand.


The Lakers have had a healthy Steve Nash in the lineup for only 1½ of their five games so far thanks to a leg injury, while fellow newcomer Dwight Howard has acknowledged that he's still recovering from the back surgery that brought a premature end to his 2011-12 campaign and knocked him out of the London Olympics. Kobe Bryant has also been playing through a foot ailment.


The Lakers are off to the worst start in the Western Conference despite carrying the league's largest payroll at just over $100 million, which would trigger an estimated luxury-tax bill at season's end of nearly $30 million.



The team has also been trying to institute a form of the Princeton offense, a system that relies on reads and ball sharing in order to take some offensive load off Bryant. The results have been mixed so far.

The NFL regular season ends Sunday December 30, 2012 around 10:30 Central Time . Whenever the Sunday Night Game between Dallas and Washington finishes, the regular season comes to an end.

I'm ruling the 2012 contest continues for 24 hours after the Dallas Washington game ends. On 11:30 PM Central Time New Years Eve, the contest concludes.

I'll put up the thread for 2013 Contest December 27, 2012 and my picks for fired Head Coaches, Fired GMs and added this year fired Assistant Coaches. Hockey has the work stoppage although they could salvage the season in Mid January. Still picking a Hockey guy is very difficult. Assistant coaches should make up for that.

The Brooklyn Nets have relieved Avery Johnson of his coaching duties, general manager Billy King announced Thursday.






P.J. Carlesimo has been named the interim coach, a source told ESPN.



Johnson, who was in the final year of his contract, was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November following an 11-4 start. But the Nets have won just three of their last 13 games in December, prompting the team to go in another direction. 



The Nets, at 14-14, currently hold the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.





"The Nets ownership would like to express thanks to Avery for his efforts and to wish him every success in the future," principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov said.



Johnson was named coach of the Nets on June 15, 2010.  In two-plus seasons with the Nets, Johnson compiled a record of 60-116.

The Philadelphia Eagles fired coach Andy Reid after 14 seasons, the team announced Monday.



"Andy Reid won the most games of any head coach in Eagles history and he is someone I respect greatly and will remain friends with for many years to come," owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement. "But, it is time for the Eagles to move in a new direction. Coach Reid leaves us with a winning tradition that we can build upon. And we are very excited about the future."





Lurie will address the media at a noon ET news conference.



Sunday's loss to the Giants dropped the Eagles to 4-12 this season. 



Reid was due to make $6 million in 2013 in the final year of his contract. 



Sources told ESPN on Sunday that Reid already was preparing to coach elsewhere next season in case he is no longer with the Eagles.



He has been calling around the league, trying to put together a coaching staff, so when he was fired he would be ready to resume coaching for another franchise next season.



Some around the league have wondered whether Reid would be a fit back in California, where he grew up, but the San Diego Chargers are planning to go in other directions than Reid, according to league sources.



Although he is not expected to be a candidate with the Chargers, Reid could wind up as a candidate in Jacksonville if the Jaguars fire Mike Mularkey or in Arizona if the Cardinals part ways with coach Ken Whisenhunt.



The 54-year-old Reid, who was hired to coach the Eagles in 1999, is 130-93-1 in 14 seasons with the franchise.



Under Reid, the Eagles have made nine playoff appearances, won six division titles, played in five NFC Championship Games and lost one Super Bowl.

9 point pick - Randy Cunneyworth ( Montreal - NHL )
8 point pick - Pierre Gauthier ( Montreal - NHL )
7 point pick - Scott Arniel ( Columbus - NHL )
6 point pick - Brent Sutter ( Calgary - NHL )
5 point pick - Jack Capuano ( NY Islanders - NHL )
4 point pick - Chan Gailey ( Buffalo - NFL ) December bonus + island pick = 9 points
3 point pick - Joe Sacco ( Colorado - NHL )
2 point pick - Andy Reid ( Philadelphia - NFL ) December bonus = 4 points
1 point pick - Leslie Frazier ( Minnesota - NFL )
