I am so aggrivated after the 14 going on 15 years of losing that i basically despise the ownership and organization we call our own but i cant help myself but on my way home after work and class but to look forward to watching the pirate game

this is usually only on days when there is nothing on but i dont get why my mind would want me to watch something that just tears me apart game after game loss after loss

The Next Best Thing: Who is the Greatest Celebrity Impersonator? on ABC

give it a try! while frank calliendo is the best, this will save you from watching 23 guys playing stick ball and scratching themselves while trying to impersonate an actual MLB team!

I'm sick of it, but it looks like they might be hatching from that spell. Who knows what's to come for the Pirates now.

The Pirates will be a joke in MLB until there is new ownership. There will never be new ownership because owning a MLB team is a cash cow. Moo...http://www.vbulletin-fans.com/images/smilies/cow.gif

Hopefully this protest I've been hearing about works out.

I have no details of it. I saw it on the PG website. I saw no details. Please don't shoot the messenger.

:m16: Just kidding.

I don't know if that's what you were talking about, just what I heard from different people about not going to games and giving the FO your hard earned bucks for their mediocre Bucs...

I don't think it will work if people are actually pursuing this line of action. Not easy explaining politics and $ to some kid who wants to go see the Pirates in action.

That's why they have promotional nights, so people will come... and they still will as long as there is something free in it for them.

Not this Pirates fan. I don't care what they give away - I refuse to give one more dollar to the Nuttings and their half-assed organization. My boycott isn't against the team itself - it's against management. I love my Pirates no matter how good or badly they play, but enough is enough. I can sit at home, have a ciggy and an iced tea (or beer), go to the can and watch them on the tube and I've saved myself $30.00. Nuck the Futtings. :upyours:

I love any of my hometown teams. Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, Passion...all of them. Win or lose. I don't hate the Pirates. I just hate their loser ownership. This once-proud and prestigious baseball franchise has been run into the ground, and I'm tired of it.

Boycott???? I guess you haven't been to a Pirate game in a while. People have been boycotting the team for the last 10+ years.

You can blame mgmt all you want. But as long as there isn't a salary cap or a new owner that has an endless supply of $, things will never change. I don't doubt that this ownership group is making money and that they could spend more than they do, but unless they are able to spend three to four times the amount of the current payroll they will never be able to compete.

Do you really think McClatchey and his partners are sandbagging that much??

One more reason Littlefield hasn't really been able to do his job. The Nuttings give him a low budget which I really feel is unfair to him. He's done a fantastic job with the farm, but with building the team at the Major League level has been dead meat for him.
