n.— «Simply translated, the ziggy means: the guillotine, an execution, a firing, being forced out, a resignation under duress—simply, canning a coach. Usually, the victim is an unfortunate soul who has twisted in jeopardy for several weeks as critics, fans and media marvels jabbed harpoons at him.» —“The ziggy rears its ugly head again in Detroit” by Jerry Green Detroit News (Mich.) July 23, 2005.
