Yeah, the quote in today's daily was about as cold as you can get. I'm sure Phil regrets the way it came out, but... Really, though, the point isn't the season ticket holders -- you buy tickets, you go to games, that doesn't really buy you much else -- but there were a lot of people who put a lot more into this organization than that, with the express, often-stated promise that this was a long-term investment: volunteers, sponsors, folks in the supporters groups. Many of us were specifically asked to do things for the team, which we gladly did, and I suppose we assumed (yes, our fault there) that that bought us more consideration than we received in the end. Personally, I can say that there are things I would not have done for the team had I known how things would turn out. On the other hand, there are also things we might have been able to do for the team had they let us know they needed them. As noted before, if they were really looking for local investors, they were awfully quiet about it. If they were really losing an unacceptable amount of money, they never asked for help or ideas from people who might have been able to help. In the end, that's why we feel so bitter, I think: the feeling that, when the chips were down, they didn't really trust the community they claimed to be a part of, and didn't really try very hard to stay here.
