NASHVILLE — They win the games they are supposed to win. They have great ownership, a sturdy local family that has earned the trust and love of the fans. The owner’s soccer team never takes him away from the team that really matters.
They have clear, continuous leadership. One voice. There is no ambiguity about the chain of command. They also have leadership on the field; their best player is a modern-day Bill Russell. High-salaried players work hard for the money and if they are cut loose, they don’t get paid.
