Sounders to let fans vote to keep or replace GM

If you have ever wished you could vote to have the person who runs your favorite sports team fired, or kept, the Seattle Sounders are making that dream come true for their fans.

Sounders season-ticket holders and members of The Alliance, the club's official member assocation, will take part in an online vote to either retain general manger Adrian Hanauer (pictured on the left), or to replace him. The vote will take place from Oct. 7th to Dec. 7th.

The practice is patterned after the model of some European clubs, like FC Barcelona, which allow club members to vote on the position of club president.

What do you think of this move? Like the idea of letting fans vote? Would you vote to fire the people who currently run your favorite club?
