    Reds official RedsZone member

    I'd love the team to have someone come in here and talk too us every once in a while. Just something like a Q&A where we knew they really were listening too us.

    I know DanO is gone and even after I defended him I know that is a good move. The communication thing through RedsZone would be huge...maybe do special ticket prices for specific dates where RedsZoners do a picture day or a autograph day or something like that...I am just thinking of the good will it would create and how I'd love it.

    Anybody else have any fan friendly suggestions for the front office to try?

    One would still think you have to go through the media/PR gestapo known as Rob Butcher.

    We've bugged Marc Lancaster for as long as I have been here. But, he's got a day job, or something.

    Perhaps that department is about to undergo a change

    One can only hope. I agree I think it would be cool to have someone high up on the inside care about what we have to say.. visit with the forum members.. ala theo/luchiano/orwhoever(?) on the SOS(?) boston fan board.. but i'm not holding my breath..

    I've thought about contacting the team to see if they'd be willing to do a written interview, at least. Maybe someone who actually has a team contact could help us out?

    The Devil Rays new owner/CEO is in their board....of course the Red Sox were already mentioned...If they want to be fan focused, this is where they could make many disciples to go and spread the word of the change in the Reds.

    I'm not exactly an insider, short of being a former sales representative of the company that sold the Reds offices their computers and Marty B. his own personal home PC back in 1999, but I'll see what I can accomplish, if anything.

    They can hire me to be internet liasion, 'cept they'd probably want me to learn how to spell "liasion" correctly first, or expect me to care enough to use a spell check.

    If those aren't deal-breakers I'd like the job, please, Mr. Castellini.

    Maybe someone would answer some prewritten questions. I doubt someone from the Reds would openly post. We've seen media people get harassed ruthlessly on here.

    I'm drawing a blank, other than one talk show host who brought much of it on himself, IMO - who are we talking about?

    Schilling and Henry were harassed mercilessly at first over on SOSH as well, because people didn't believe it was them. Once they found out that it really was them, that stopped.

    I think TC is talking about media types in general, including McCoy, Fay, Marty, Steve S., Furrball, etc. The only media that has posted on RedsZone has been Lance McAlister and maybe Marc Lancaster.

    Why don't we go ahead and get a list of questions together? Then it'll be ready when the opportunity presents itself.

    Can we restructure Wily Mo Pena's contract and send him down to the minors?

    Makes all the routine posts.

    Now, it's behavior like this that just frightens the grown-ups.
