Whatever you think of Blackburn's owners, they cannot be accused of being chicken when it comes to loyalty of besieged manager Steve Kean.
It's a small wonder that Kean has not succumbed to illness given the amount of pressure the Scot has endured in his time in charge of Rovers, though the Venky's have stuck by their man regardless.
As that saintly patience held despite Blackburn's relegation from the Premier League last year, it becomes even more baffling that rumours are now suggesting that the end of Kean's time at Ewood Park may be nigh.
After all, until Friday night's home defeat to Middlesbrough, Kean had overseen a great start to the Championship season, which had seen Rovers set the early pace with 14 points from their opening six games.
Could this be a knee-jerk reaction to defeat therefore or perhaps the excuse the Venky's were looking for in order to finally bring an end to Kean's tenure?
If it was purely based on results then this would seem ludicrous. Blackburn have already beaten likely promotion candidates Leicester and Hull as well as Birmingham's tormentors Barnsley. An away draw at Elland Road is not to be scoffed at either.
Rovers travel to Charlton this weekend and are 2.588/5 to beat the Addicks, who have lost three of their last four games and have just two wins to their name since returning to the Championship.
A more likely reason for anticipated action is the desperately sparse attendances at Ewood, which has seen Rovers attracting their lowest crowds for over 20 years.
One face that has the potential to bring the punters back is club legend Tim Sherwood who famously captained the 1994/95 Premier League title-winning team.
Former midfielder Sherwood has been heavily linked as a replacement but has very little management experience so it would be a massive gamble.
New signing Jordan Rhodes is certainly one player who would like to see Kean remain at the helm in order for the Scotland striker to repay his faith after an £8 million move. Rhodes has publically stated that he feels a "huge debt of gratitude to him".
Despite the latest speculation, Blackburn are still second faves at 8.88/1 to win the league and 3.211/5 to achieve immediate promotion back to the Premier League.
