Oh by the way. For those who are worried about the Pirates leaving if they sell to a new owner. The Pirates are locked with a 30 year lease on that ball park. They wouldn't move.

The bottom line is this:

Either way, the Pirates' fans get screwed.
So, people like me are attacked CONSTANTLY by the pro-boycott side.

Now with all this noise about the 30th. A protest? So people who DO go to that game are going to be harassed by people who think they shouldn't be there?

So the outside of PNC Park is going to look like an abortion clinic? GREAT idea.

BTW, 83-43, I am not after you directly. There are people out there thirsting for blood over the Pirates.

Here it is. In the beginning of this fall from grace:
People wanted to blame the players first. Didn't work.
Recently, People want to blame the management. They don't give a shit.
Now, Its the fans who go to the games fault. Bullshit.

Why does someone have to be to blame? Its the nature of the beast.

Quote:
Then you slam people FOR GOING TO GAMES. Shame on you.
What I mean by this is, break down what the general pro-boycott is saying (because once again this wasn't aimed at you directly so I will kept it directed at a group). People that go to games are to blame?

Now. To answer some of your questions 83, or better yet, assaults/

Quote:
Shame on you for making an assumption instead of asking questions before you open your mouth.
What question do you want me to ask you? I already know how you feel about the issue.

Quote:
Besides the point. There's a reason why they sell out during every firework night. I doubt it's because of the fantastic display of MLB the Pirates have put on for the last 15 years. Give me a break.
So you don't know people who ENJOY going to PNC Park. F*ck ya they go for the fireworks, too. People go to baseball games for a number of reasons. And don't even say towels and bobbleheads. If you think people go to Pirate games and pay for a ticket so they can get a bobblehead then I have been giving you WAY too much credit over the past few months, man.

Quote:
My tax dollars helped pay for that ball park. Ownership promised a better product. If anybody should be moving it should be Nutting and McClatchy. But why would they? They have suckers walking inside PNC park night after night like zombies buying into the B.S. they spew year after year after year.
I'm a Zombie, then, and know nothing about baseball. Who needs it. I have this sweet Paulino bobblehead (just playin)

No problem man. Just another reason for those who are worried about this team leaving town if they don't bend over for McClatchy and Nutting not to attend if they don't want. Instead, just wait for a new ownership group who actually gives a damn and give your hard earned cash to them and actually witness a MLB team instead of a AAA baseball team.

Just giving those folks a heads up. Pretty cool huh? I know, I know....shame on me.

Good to know, and was my main concern when I heard rumblings about ownership change.

I'll try this one more time....

There's a reason why games are sold out during firework and bobblehead night. Those people are not attending those games in order to see great baseball. Since there are so many reasons why people attend baseball games I wonder why they are not sold out every home game? I wonder why attendance has dropped to 27th or 28th worst in the league?

Apparently those supposed "many reasons" are running very, very low.

Sometimes the Size of the Ballpark can give you good reason for that.

lol, ya know. I thought it was cheesy, but then I got to thinking. That has to be the most creative thing to come out of that organization over the last 15 years. I commend them. Keep up the good work!

Add that to the list.

I go to see good baseball, AND get a chance to see former players from my local Double-A Baseball team play for the Pirates. (The Altoona Curve)
