I agree, in my business if I was off by 50%, my boss would be looking for a better answer than "I'm not sure why sales are down". If my sales had dropped that bad...I'd probably be writing a resume right now.
Having said that, the excuses about not coming out because Brodsky is cheap continue to boggle the mind.
Is the place all of a sudden going to fill up if Devin Featherstone gets a 60" plasma TV on the way out of town this year? Just ridiculous. I wonder if when these people go shopping, they check and see what the staff get paid and how big their Christmas bonuses were? The excuse is that the kids get treated poorly....IT SUCKS TO PLAY IN A HALF FULL BARN. YOU ARE HURTING THE SAME PLAYERS YOU ARE SUPPOSEDLY SUPPORTING BY STAYING AWAY. This logic is seriously flawed.
I think that the idea of Jim Swanson to hold some kind of an information session, or town hall is great. My only fear is that it would turn into a witch hunt. I really don't think this team is going anywhere (Brodsky voted against both Toigo's move to Vancouver and the TC/Chilliwack move. I think he would be in tough), I also don't think he is as keen on moving as everyone thinks. I believe the fact is that he and the citizens of PG are going to have to learn to get along. A meeting like this may be a good start.
