Fitz had to go but not in this way 

Like politicians, sports people seldom get to go out on their own terms. You put yourself up for public office and the electorate can cut the seat from under you just as quickly as they put you on it, and in many ways sport is the same. Managing the senior football team in a county like Kerry is in its own way being in public office - you're there as a keeper of the flame for all invested and interested in the game, and the weight of public opinion can quench the light on your ambitions as quickly and as ruthlessly as any aggrieved electorate.
