I am actually getting a little tired of reading all the bad stuff about the fan weekend and the team this year. i admit to starting half the threads myself but i have heard enough now. I am going to finish this letter and let it be.
This all goes back to the start of the year, we where told that we did not need season tickets that look professional like every other team in the league becasue they cost too much and the team would rather put the dollars into the product on the field. I think that this was not the right comment to make. First off i am not about suggest i know how you run a football team but there should be a budget for things related to fan events and fan loyalty. Obviously we did not see the benefit of the nice ticket dollars on the field but that could not have been predicted so i am not going to harp on it. K.W and Provost have been doing a great job back pedling and trying to assure everyone the team cares about them but they should not have to do this there should never have been issues to begin with.
I hope there is some accountability when it comes to issue like the fan appreciation day and the tradition posters running dry. The plaques running out, auctions and numerous other promotions that didn't pan out.
If you did take care of your fans there probably would not be as many hard feelings about our team this year. i know that i will always support the cats but if we have a bad product on the field good fan realtions and events it go along way.
I know you can't predict what a team will be like on the field but if you did all these things for the fans and the team turns out to be a winner the organization will look twice as good.
I have always gone by the idea that you can not run a business on good product alone, the customer service has to be great also.
thats it i am done. i would now like to look towards next year and run at the cup.
