"It's kinda mean to tell the truth"? Oh, nooooo, won't somebody think of the poor millionaire's feelings? How could we offend Eugene's sensibilities like that?
If nobody tells the truth, the status quo remains, and Melnyk continues running the team into the ground.
In all fairness though, the team may only still be in Ottawa because of him..that team has gone through some tough times in a market that isn't exactly the strongest... Its not like we're talking about a GM or a coach (employees who can be fired). The guy owns the team. He's made a shi**show of it but then again, that's his prerogative.
This isn't politics where you have to stand up for what you believe in to get change. This is business and the people putting up these billboards are a detriment to what they really
want. These billboards are only making him want to move the team somewhere else......... If that happens, the status quo won't remain. There won't be a team for it to remain.
You don't have to worry about his feelings but you do have to worry about his motives if the team continues to hemorrhage money. Maybe he sells to the highest bidder instead of a buyer who wants to keep the team in Ottawa....
Like I've said above, the disgruntled fans are going about this wrong way. They are right, but they're still going about it the wrong way.
