Goodness, this is bad! And the facts are more brutal! Especially this one fact...

Solignac's pace and aggressiveness were one of the few bright spots for our Colorado Rapids.

Facts are brutal!  So Matthew Doyle comes with the brutality regarding our Colorado Rapids:

Two out of 31.  Let's pull out the ol' calculator.  That's 0.06451612903.  Six percent of the last 31 games.

The saddest part of it all is how many I'm talking to who are season ticket holders who are about done.  Others struggle with whether to even watch the games, since the prevailing sentiment is that the Rapids will just rip their guts out.

Doyle continues:

This stretch will put to the test the most dedicated Rapids fan. I'm convinced that we have the players to play and compete.  I'm just hoping the players aren't giving up like many of the fans are.

The type of open wound we have now will not be fixed by a band-aid or a stitch or two.  It's getting gangrenous and risks amputation.  John Maxwell rightly said, "Everything rises and falls on leadership."  Something has to change.  This has got to stop.  But how?
