Seriously? How long have I been preaching about the lack of accountability in this organization? About six years now? Who was the first here to seriously question Clint Hurdle...before, during and even after the 2007 Series? If fans want to wear brown bags, fine. What I am saying is that if there are 35,000 people in the stands every night doing it, the Monforts are still depositing large sums of money. We can whine about the deficiencies all we want, but there is a rather unique situation in play here and we are saddled with ownership that doesn't give a cr*ap about winning. They don't have to. They are sitting around laughing hysterically at the meaningless symbolic efforts of people who's money they already have in their pockets.
The whole thing is like that carnival attraction where you throw balls at a target and if you hit it, the guy in the chair falls in the water. You may hate that guy in the chair and think you have accomplished something wonderful everytime you hit the target and give him a dunk. But at the end of the evening, he dries off and he's got your cash. Who really won that game?
Frankly, I don't care much if people wear brown bags either. I said as much above. What I am saying is that if anyone expects it to accomplish anything, they are kidding themselves. The first fan base I ever saw doing it was New Orleans Saints fans back in the early 70's. Most of 4 decades later they made it to and won a Super Bowl. That gesture sure produced results! And your last sentence more or less makes my point for me...the people who are putting the bags over their heads have ALREADY given the Monforts their money.
As to the political remarks which probably don't have much place on a baseball board, I would only offer that from where I sit, our freedoms were in considerably more danger during the 8 years we spent under the short bus chimp than they are now...political opinions are, of course much like @ holes. Everyone has one and nobody wants to see anyone elses that much here.
They have changed the angle they film the post-game at in order to prevent bag head fans from showing up on TV.
The Rockies are a shameless group.... this is pretty low.
