PSA: RANIERI DIDN'T DIE, HE JUST GOT SACKED BECAUSE HIS TEAM ARE ABOUT TO BE RELEGATED.

No, it's quite explicable.  I mean, come on.  The only shocking thing here — other than the overreaction — just as with Mourinho last season, was how long Leicester City waited.  The timing is poor; they should've either done it earlier, or not at all and ride the bomb down like in Dr. Strangelove.

Like, the lesson here is, don't be within a point of the relegation zone (especially after winning the title), and your job should be secure.
