gac's post summed up my feelings exactly. i wasn't able to express them because this conversation ruffled my feathers too much.
i went to the game last night and had a great time. it made me sad to think that was it for the year, maybe more. i love this game, i love this team. i don't know if i can support this any longer though if they do go on strike. will i come back? maybe slowly and eventually, but i honestly don't know.
fans do matter. fans do care. i wish the players and owners (because i am not singling out either party) would realize that.
cbus, if you are able to go back, that's great. (by the way...on the ups thing, they lost 8% volume initially after the strike and are down 5% across the board. and when they had their contract up this summer, people started jumping ship to make sure their packages would get to where they were going)
