IF the "bigwig" in question actually was Swanson, how bitterly ironic would that be given the fact that PR is the one area the team has mucked up (with a capital F) even worse than personnel? I'd never ask anyone to disclose a confidential source. However in this case that's not necessary anyway. All one needs to do is lookup "hubris" in the dictionary to see who's picture is used to define it.I'm guessing that "bigwig" was Karl Swanson. Looks like the big arse he is right about now. Nice piece, John!
I think it's probably more relevant to ask (as I often have over the years) if the fans know the importance of the trenches, team identity, consistency etc., then how is it the "bigwigs" haven't learned it yet? After all, you're comparing them to competent NFL team management when these morons haven't even figured out the stuff most of us average fans know...well that we think we know, but really don't.Boone, once again you express, with amazing eloquence, what many of us think and feel. Congratulations on a fine piece of writing.
And if the "bigwigs" and anyone else have doubts about fan knowledge-particularly as regards the Redskins situation, you could reasonably ask one damning question-why, then do so many others do it so much better than you do if indeed you know so much?
I think that's exactly right Hog Fever. Too many more years, seasons (months?, weeks?) of this and I think a lot of the core, hard core fanbase is just not tuning in on a regular basis.Great piece Boone.
I tell you something I do know; I am quickly becoming apathetic about this team. I think there is a growing segment of fans who feel the same way. These aren’t band wagon or fair weather fans either. These are folks who have had season tickets for longer than Dan has been alive.
They know that the issue here is not just Jim Zorn.
They know that Dan and his cronies have turned a once proud franchise into a punch line.
They know that without a fundamental change in the organization our current situation will not change.
If the owners of the team choose to insult and chide the fans for not being “in the know” they do so at their own peril. It just makes it that much easier for current fans to find something else to invest their time, money and emotional stability in.
