Is it possible for fans to evoke change.
Not just by expressing their unhappiness on the internet and radio call in shows but by actually organizing.
I'm thinking grassroots campaign here, collecting signatures and such.


This is a call to any PP.O member who is a headstrong, organized individual who would like to lead the revolution!

Unless you have a meeting scheduled with Mr. Wilf, it's a waste of time. But it's a nice gesture. ;)

If your suggesting that we buy the team, I hope that you have a billion dollars because I'm a little short right now.

Usually I hate posts like this, but then I consider the fact that a year ago, Detroit fans wore orange to the Lions vs. Bengals game. Now they are 4-2.

Either way. Good luck.

I think the point of that was to get Matt Millen fired. Did that work? no.

Lets start an internet petition.

I heard those work.

It's a free market economy(Theoretically). The fans voice their opinion every time they spend money on the team and they vote every time they take the money they could have spent on the team and spent it elsewhere. It is a business and when revenue starts to decline, changes will occur.

If the fans continue to buy tickets,jerseys etc, then Wilf will continue to give Childress time to build the team. If the fans stop buying tickets and Jerseys,etc and revenue declines then you will eventually see a sign by winter park that says "Under new management"

You really enjoy to take out your anger of the loss, by teasing the ignorants, don't you?

They really do work.
We had one a few years ago to Randy pleading with him to stay.
They work...really.

Maybe Caine can write a letter like the one he did to Randy Moss?

"Dear Randy.


You're really cool, and I like you a lot.
Do you like me? (Check one)

___ YES I like you
___ NO, you suck

My Mom says you're sorta cool too, but you shouldn't have mooned the Packers.
I thought your butt looked good.

I'd really like you to stay with the Vikings.
I already have a lot of your stuff...like cards and jerseys and stuff, but the price will drop if you aren't a Viking anymore.

Plus, you look really cool in the uniform.

If you are thinking of leaving, just remember that if you do, I will hate you forever...and so will all (3) of the people whose names I attached to this letter.

Love,

John Smith

PS:
Don't you think this Power Rangers staionary is cool?
I got it for a buck."

I know of that one, but there was one to keep Randy here.

I cannot remember, did it work?

Assuming you wanted to make a "Change" what would it be??? You were not very specific with your proposal. Hypethetically speaking about which changes you would want might allow folks here to better debate the issue and answer your question better.....possibly??


Cheers!

Let's kidnap peyton Manning, it would be a drastic step but it just might work.

It would be even BETTER if we kidnapped Tom Brady AND Bill Belichick...and then forced them to have sex with each other.
Oh wait, they probably already DO that and would actually enjoy themselves!
