    If we had a president, I think we'd hear from him today.

    If we had an owner who cared about the Fire more than he was scared of internet criticism, I think we'd hear from him today.

    We'll see if anything is addressed by anyone, or if we get passive aggressive shit, irrelevant social media fluff, and radio silence.

    The Fire don't even get "Sound of Silnece". They get what they're giving us.

    Who are you kidding? There's a white party to get ready for.

    Expect lots of emojis and tweets that say "_____'s game is on fleak."

    Ever since Hannan and Crandall's departure the Fire social media has become like a parody combination of douchy fratboy and tumblr gifs.

    I'm what seems like less than half as old as most of the people here, and I feel old looking at their tweets. I have no idea what market they are aiming at.

    I received an email from the Chicago Fire Ticket Office with a Flash offer for the Colorado game. I am not paying $19 for a sideline ticket, hot dog, and beer. I gave up my season tickets for a reason this year. I'm not coming back. Maybe free tickets and parking will get me to the parking lot so I can tailgate, but I know there is nothing for me in Bridgeview. I can watch from my couch and have all of the tasty treats I have including drinks in the comfort of my own home. It is actually easier for me to watch later. No expectation and I can fast forward to the moment of horrid defending that leads to another loss.

    Hell, I'm 16 and I feel old looking at their tweets. I must've missed something.

    16 Geez. I used to be the young kid on the boards. I'm almost twice as old as you. Still less mature, though.

    It hurts when false hope dies.

    Besides, this is the third year in a row when we've had a day of internet rage after getting knocked out of the USOC at the semifinal stage with 0-5% chance of making the playoffs!

    It's the Why Do I Still Care/Un ******** My Fire / ******** Yourself Fire Front Office festival on twitter/BS/facebook/redditt/etc, and you're invited!

    Anybody remember how long they waited last year before rolling out the "renew now" campaign after worst defeat in Fire history?

    I received a call from season ticket rep Tuesday morning. I was driving and told him to call me back last night.
    He has not called back.

    YOU NEED TO KNOW WHERE YOU CAN SEE COCHRANE, RITTER, AND WATSON!!!!!!!

    Reminder, their theme songs are:
    "You only get one note because that's all your worth"
    I've pursued nothing - Tossers
    You don't have to be smart - Gibby Haynes

    I completely want to see them, they're my heroes. \sarcasm

    EDIT: This is the only thing that The Fire have said since the loss. No apologies, no resolutions, what the hell is wrong with these people?!
