What's worse: Underachieving teams or bad management?

Posted by Poorly Acquitted | 7/02/2009 07:52:00 PM | ,

One of the most obnoxious things a sports fan can witness is group of underachieving, overpaid athletes parading around the arena sharing more in common with an aloof puppy than with the Gladiators of the Roman Colosseum.

Equally annoying is watching management that somehow is able to combine the ineptitude of Doopey (the dwarf), W (the President) and Dwight (the Schrute).

I wanted to put it to all of you to tell me what is more frustrating. I was going to put a poll up, but this question can't be answered by merely selecting one or the other.

My two cents is that I hate bad managers/coaches. Not to go too far in depth, but part of the job of a good coach is to prevent underachieving. I have a lot of experience watching teams that suck and I hatehatehate apathetic performances more than anything. When the team isn't ready coming out of the locker room it pisses me off more than anything. When an entire team comes out looking like chumps I blame the coach.

Let's hear what you think.
