    I prefer “Pop Must Go!” It is broader and, therefore, more applicable to Pop’s particular situation, and the three syllable chant has a more traditional rhythm.

    Booing a man who led the franchise to 5 les

    This would be like booing Tim when he couldn't finish layups or jump for rebounds against OKC in his final series.

    Probably trolling, but I'll ask anyway: Seriously?

    Duncan led the franchise to 5 les, then retired at precisely the right time. He didn't hold the franchise hostage because of ego/stubbornness and refuse to go away when his body (or in the case of the genius, mind) failed him.

    Do not pay to do that. Empty seats say it all, lots of empty seats.

    To be fair, I've also seen a lot more negative comments towards Pop these days on there than I have before. The shift from blind faith to Pop is changing thank God.
    Pop's mad scientist lineups used to frustrate the out of me but I wasn't on the "Pop retire" bandwagon until this season. It's obvious something is just plain wrong with him this season.

    Not sure the FO would put 2 and 2 together. They’d probably just think SA doesn’t support its teams and they should move the franchise.

    I think pop is a media and cares greatly about how the sports media and the liberal media think of him. If the sports media finally started to consistently publicly say pops lost his touch and is hurting the franchise...I think he and the FO would finally get the message. As long as they continue to praise him, they’ll just blame the fans for the empty seats.

    As much as he's pissed me off this season, I would never be able to bring myself to chant that. Not after all the beautiful memories he helped create for us Spurs fans.

    I would gladly chant "Marco sucks", "Lonnie's better", or something along those lines though. that Italian POS so much.

    Cant do that to Pop. He's done too much.
    However we should be chanting "please play Lonnie" everytime Marco checks in or has the ball

    Holding the franchise hostage?

    They made the playoffs last season

    We haven't even reached the stage where Pop is in "retirement mode" and people here want to boo him at home. If the Spurs miss the playoffs for at least 2 consecutive years, we can begin discussing whether Pop needs to step away for hurting the team.

    The NBA isn't like other sports, the franchises in this league almost always treat their legends like royalty and allow them to dictate their own terms. Pop's on-court impact isn't on the same level as Duncan's(not even close), but he's arguably the face of this franchise from a historical standpoint and in the eyes of the fans and media.

    Nah man... pop is a dinosaur now... imo heís out of touch with what the league has become and this new age of players and coaches. He refuses to adapt and itís getting frustrating. I admit the premise of the thread was extreme but pop this year has been awful. Again my opinion but to me itís time for the next chapter. I donít have any idea what heís trying to accomplish out there at his age and game plan all together. Itís just a mess. I love Pop but itís time. He had his time and it was glorious.

    as much as I hate to agree with TD21 he is right. Duncan left at the right time. Pop is one or more years over. He refuse to let go... I hate to say it but I think the team is all he has now.

    way too many braindead sniffer fans for this to ever happen. Spurs fans dont even boo their team when they're giving piss poor effort getting on in their own building they would never chant fire Pop at a home game.

    that being said Pop does not deserve that. he has been the GOAT coach for many years, unfortunately father time and personal issues have caught up with him. i really think the combo of his wife passing and his big three retiring around that time + kawhi wanting out really ed him up mentally. he doesnt seem like he gives a about coaching anymore at all. i do want him to retire and just run the FO, but i dont think i could ever bring myself to boo the man or chant about firing him at a home game

    He can still stick around as long as he wants and be what Riley is in Miami. I don't want him completely gone and anybody that does is an asshole.

    It would be highly disrespectful of any Spurs fan to chant fire pop. He helped the Spurs win 5 NBA championships and yes Spurs are having an uphill battle this season but you can't have a perfect season all the time. Let Pop coach until he is ready to ride off on his horse into the sunset, he's earned it pretty much.

    Pop needs to go. anything else does not solve the problem. Its like giving someone with the a disease something to cure the cough but not the actually disease and it just gets worse.

    4 MORE YEARS!
    4 MORE YEARS!

    If what Mo said was right about the front office having to convince Pop to coach this year, then theyíre the only ones to blame. As frustrating as Pop is lately, I canít blame him at all for checking out mentally. Basketball is a minuscule thing compared to what Pop has been going through in his personal life lately. IMO, he should retire after this season and just enjoy life with his family. And time to pass over the reigns to a hungrier, more mentally engaged coach. Itís probably gonna be a weird adjustment and a few losing seasons for a coach to take his place fully and I think even the hardcore edgelords on here will appreciate and miss Pop after he retires, but itís a much needed change. I really hope itís his last for his own sake.

    I prefer ďPop Must Go!Ē It is broader and, therefore, more applicable to Popís particular situation, and the three syllable chant has a more traditional rhythm.

    I would suggest "Go Pop Go!". But that arrogant would think people were cheering him.

    I was watching a special with Tom Brady and his coach Biilichick the coach was talking about going with Tom replacing his starting QB. He replied at the time to a question why he was doing it and he responded ďThe Owners pay me a lot of money to make decisions on what is Best For The Team - Whatís Best For The Team and that is what I am going to doĒ.

    I wish to Poop would start doing that instead of coaching and acting like this is His Team.

    The game has passed him by in virtually every respect, yet this franchise continues to live in the past and hurt their reputation to appease him.

    So? They had no chance of doing any damage. That's fine when you're a franchise that's been on the outside for a long time and it's your first time in with your developing core. They were the an hesis of that.

    We reached it 4+ seasons ago. He began to drink his own Kool-Aid following the '14 championship and completely lost touch/ignored the way the game was trending.

    That's fine for legendary players, but not a coach. This franchise had no problem phasing out all of their recent greats (save Ginobili), but Mr. Get Over Yourself is above it? The fans and media are ignorant. No coach should ever be regarded as a face of the franchise and this organization should be embarrassed that anyone would even contemplate that notion.

    Maybe Pop is trying to tank without actually looking like he is tanking?
