Chelski update
* Roman Abramovich of [[BritishFootyTeams Chelsea FC]] is almost as bad as Mr. Spacely. There have been nine different managers (Ranieri, Mourinho, Grant, Scolari, Hiddink, Ancelotti, Villas-Boas, di Matteo, Benitez and Mourinho again) since 2004.

** During training camp and even late in the season, it's not uncommon to have a player be cut or waived and then resigned a couple days later, depending on how the season is going.

*** In Japan, the ethos of "lifetime employment" means that outright firing or laying off someone is considered disgraceful for both the company and the employee. So employees on the way out would be placed into a "banishment room", where they are given meaningless busywork to do. The shame of being so treated generally means that the employee would quit on short order.

* Similarly, many UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball teams can go though numerous head coaches, coordinators, and players every season. Especially true for perpetually under-performing teams where you're lucky to get more than a year or two to show improvement or it's out the door and on to the next team. Many professional sports have players/coaches who've changed teams so often that they are considered "[[LampshadeHanging journeymen]]", only hired to be average-performing placeholders until better talent comes along.

* Creator/RichardWilliams has been known to fire numerous animators for not living up to his (admittedly high) standards of fluid, perfect animation. Some of the revolving-door staff on ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' were fired before ever setting foot in his studio.
