PetterssonOrPeterson Posted November 29, 2021 Share Posted November 29, 2021 Hello all, For the last 8 years, ownership and management has been trying to sell us on establishing a "winning environment" and building a culture/identity that wouldn't tolerate losing. Last year was an absolute mess. It was very telling when players like Schmidt and Holtby came out and talked about that "bizarre" time they had with this team last year. Probably still a pass though by fans and ownership alike because it was that gross north division season. This year was supposed to be different, and when it ended up being more of the same... obviously the fans are pissed and ownership has been in a "state of shock" (lol). Yet they still refuse to make a change and keep delaying the process to a point where we've now reached the lowest starting record in this franchise's 52 year history, which I think is a pretty big F you from the ownership to fans. I think what gets me is just how ownership expects fans to trust in their message and whatever they're trying to sell when they refuse to change anything about their team/product? More importantly, why should fans trust them? They've exposed how they truly operate and pretty clearly this season. Why should season ticket holders trust in owners that profess building a winning culture that doesn't tolerate losing because this city "won't accept it"? but ironically, they show that they themselves are accepting it? Especially in a season where everything was "supposed to work" in their eyes? It's basic business practice to build a trusting relaionship with your clients so that they consume more of your product. Your clients put their trust in you which is what makes them purchase the products that the business owner is selling. If the business owner continues to be negligent about a faulty product that a customer is constantly complaing about, then why should the customer keep consuming the product? Why should the consumer trust the owner? Is this a tellale sign of how things in the future will also be dealt with when/if things go wayward for this team? They're not dumb, or at least, they shouldn't be considering the fact that they made over a billion in net worth due to business. They know fully that if they had forced a change earlier in the season and taken some bold actions, there might've been a way to salvage the season with a fresh voice/mind conributing ideas and strategies for this team. It also shows the fans that you care. They've just decided to throw out this season like they did the last and let their "beloved" clients suffer as a result of it. The ones that help stuff their pockets. Who knows, maybe in a few hours, a day or two they finally get off their a*ses and do something they already should've done, but as of now, they continue to tarnish the trust that fans have/had in this franchise.
