Dick Monfort slips up and inadvertently offers fans some great advice.
I’ve been hammering the Colorado Rockies for a decade now, and for good reason. Years and years of clueless ownership and management were bad enough, and then we found out about the Jesus Mandate.
Now we have a fun new episode to consider. Some poor schmuck of a fan popped a few hundred dollars and drove the family over from Grand Junction to see a game, whereupon the Rockies were … well, the Rockies. So he filled out a fan survey and was honest about his experience.
Next thing you know he got an e-mail directly from owner Dick Monfort:
“If product and experience that bad don’t come!”
Dude, that’s what I’ve been saying for years!
Hopefully Denver fans will pay attention to the team’s legacy of ineptitude and the owner’s momentary spasm of honesty. If they’ll take his advice for a couple of years they might wind up with new owners who know what the fuck they’re doing.
