Need some suggestions for this. Feel to message/post suggestions.
Group poll, so best idea wins!!
"Rapids fans deserve better-KSE out!"
Price update:$850 for 30min flight time. Starts at 7pm!!!!
I like delpy88's, but I'd add something about Pablo.
"Rapids fans deserve better - KSE OUT! Pablo OUT!"
$850 30min flight starting at 7pm
Let's make this happen everyone!!!
almost half way there!! $400 / $850
I like either 1 or 3.
I'm all for a banner blasting ownership. But I'm not in favor of taking shots at Pablo. He's a club legend and deserves better than he has received from the owners. Has he been put in a position to succeed? I'm not so sure.
Sure, he's not getting the results we want. But he's only been in this position for a year and a half. The ownership has been here much longer and is responsible for the majority of the blame.
We can certainly question the ownership's desire to be successful, but I have no doubt that Pablo loves this club and wants the best for it.
I think Pablo's fair game. He's in over his head, and his comments show he has no clue what he's doing - he's either ignorant, out of touch with reality, or just obtusely stubborn. He was a great player. He is an awful coach.
I like some combination of 1 & 3 myself.
I'm back and forth on Pablo: he took the job with no experience so what did everyone expect including him? Although, he was almost certainly to have been promised at least one qualified assistant coach for help and he wasn't given it. Again, Pablos lineups, subs and player picks have all been major wtf moments, two word: Joe Nasco. But again, there was an acknowledged decision from above to just let Pablo flail through the 2014 season. And 2015 now to boot. Seasons we fans paid full price for, many of you even in advance, and they just threw our dollars down a f**cking toilet and consciously decided not to do their utmost to field a competitive product, I may never forgive that, especially since we are into season 2 of the same crap. So as disappointed as I am in Pablo and in the end, I do think he needs to leave his position because the well is poisoned for him here, in my mind anyways. But I think the real culprits that put us in this fugly jam are the tightwad KSE dipshit goons and that's who ought to be called out clearest on the banner. I'm so sick of their Walmart ways.
That actually gives me an idea, by all accounts Silent Stan really HATEs to be reminded that he got his billions from porking Ann Walton the Walmart heir, so a nice and considerate personal touch would be to include that somewhere in the banner. "KSE=Walmart Soccer, Low Wages, Lower Results" or some variation. I'm fine with making it personal frankly, he's a sad little turd of an owner that squeezes the hearts of passionate fans for a high diversified profit and no on field success. My worst two sporting days were when he bought/became majority owner of my two favorite teams, Rapids and then Arsenal.
The banner needs to avoid looking like a vendetta, juvenile pot shots, or personal animosity. The message should be the Rapids organization is fielding a horrible team.
I know I'm swimming up hill here. People want DP's and demand DP's. I say I want to good team. Well we got our DP's just like people wanted, but we don't have a good team. I feel the same way about a coach, GM, Owner. I don't give a shit who they are, I want to good team. So go ahead and keep demanding things like that and I'll keep demanding a good team.
What would I put on a banner?
Rapids - Worst MLS Team
Rapids - x wins in y games
Rapids - Fewest goals in MLS
Rapids Fans Deserve A Better Team.
What I'm afraid will happen is the banner will be perceived as a few disgruntled people blowing off steam.
Garber: Hey RFO, what's with the banner.
RFO: Meh, just some crazy fans. We average x,000 attendance which is up from last year. Beer sales are up, concessions are up.
Garber: Good job RFO.
Yeah, maybe something like RAPIDS - 31 GAMES, 2 WINS, ZERO RESPONSIBILITY
Maybe we do this another way...show what could have been, but thanks for KSE/Management, we've just gotten worse and worse as a team.
Banner idea: 2010 MLS Champs, only downhill since then! Rapids Deserve better than that KSE
Just an idea of how to shame KSE and make it about the field lack of success, not the results of Season Tickets/Beer sales.
I'm sure Garber will be able to see that people would rater spend money on a banner than with NewCDChivasUSARapids. I've had to replace all my old Rapids gear as it was getting worn with college stuff because I refuse to give to the coffers of our underwhelming overlord at the same time I would much rather give money to a banner.
ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY more like it!!
Garber: Give Stan and Josh the Boot
Meanwhile KSE scrambles to get an Air Force flyover that will shut down the air space? Much easier than improving their effort/team.
That's the word I was looking for. I knew responsibility didn't sound right.
RAPIDS - 31 GAMES, 2 WINS, ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY #KSEOUT
I'm liking this one more and more.
Anyone know how to add this to the thread for voting purposes?
Is there any response on reddit? (I don't know how reddit works, I assume that are doppelgangers are there, frustrated at the Rapids).
I generally dislike hashtags, but the banner needs to be tied to something else to avoid coming across as a one off...
Rapids #bugandybleeding - KSE OUT!
Any signage, Tifo, tweets, etc... should carry the same tag.
Even better if it says BurgandyBleeding? ;>)
Reminds me of the WWC matches in Winnipeg and a campaign for something or another "Be the Difference" (actually ovarian cancer - not a laughing matter) which on the sideboards is "BETHEDIFFERENCE" I annoyingly kept asking my wife (and her threshold is pretty high) "Who is Beth DeFrance and why isn't Ellis playing her, she has to be better than Lloyd, faster than Abby, etc. and so on. It does point out that the most effective message will probably be simple and unmistakable in interpretation.
sorry, been a little e tied up at work. I will get it up, just haven't had a chance yet.
This is it...only thing is stating KSEOUT is wasting your breath. They aren't going anywhere. how about something..
RAPIDS - 31 GAMES, 2 WINS, ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY - - FRONT OFFICE OUT!
alright, work neglected and links are hot on reddit. I'll let ya know, or you can follow
KSE out is the cream-dream, the top prize, it's the 2nd showcase.
