Concerned About the Impact of The Contract Negotiations

Can we heal this divide between Coach Leach, the Administration and the fans? I for one am concerned and a bit embarrassed by the press coverage that Tech has received surrounding the negotiations concerning Coach's contract extension.  There is too much public drama for my taste. The public e-mails and finger pointing are escalating the negotiations to confrontation and leading to a rift that may never be closed.  ESPN's Tim Griffin has dropped Tech to number 6 in his Big 12 pre-season rankings citing as part of his reason that "Mike Leach is angry after a prolonged contract dispute with school officials." 

However, the upside of this process is that we the fans through public forums such as this one can respectfully express our opinions and support or lack thereof, for Coach Leach and the Administration based on at least some of the facts which have been publically revealed. The participants can read and evaluate it for themselves thus providing the fans some influence in the process. 

Hopefully this painful dispute will end soon and on a positive note. I agree with Seth that we need an Al Green ending. Thanks Seth for the outlet and for your positive outlook. Remember folks coaches come and go but when it is all said and done, we are still the Tech family and we are all in this together.
