    have excellent communication? you sure about that?

  2. So is this Neelans position or are we hiring 3 deputy managers?

  3. Childress, Commerce CityWednesday, December 01, 2010

    I think they get a car too? Don't they?

  4. what a joke, that is all i can say is what a joke!

  5. What a joke is right. The other Deputy didn't have and still does not have any of the described qualifications,skills or abilities for this job, just ask anyone that does not work in the Managers office. I think I will apply!

  6. So the deputy will be more educated than Flannery? Flannery's decisions are such a joke!

  7. If we get someone who fits the job description, at least we will not have to fly them all over the world to get training like we had to do with Flannery.

  8. Close to the situationThursday, December 02, 2010

    so i guess this is the "official" response from CC that NN is leaving?

  9. So many things to wait for- official notice of Neelan's leaving, the Rapids victory, Flannery's house....
