Pittsburgh Tea Party


We are not some expansion team with no history or success. We are the Pittsburgh Pirates. One of the oldest and most respected teams is the world.  Until the last 17 years... The trades this year (this week's trade broke me) prove to me and many others than there is something going on in the organization that stinks.  They are not trying to win. We must take a stand!!!

#1 Boycott  Not that many fans go to games, but an organized boycott gets the press involved and hits them in the wallet.

#2 Symbolic acts - Stage a March.  Think it as a Fans Right's March, ending at the stadium, with a speeches from past players.

#3 Ad campaign to beg Mark Cuban or another deep pocket owner to buy the team.

#4 Lobby to have the team taken over by the City, ala Green Bay Packers. Issue stock, and we could all own them, hire a real GM with intention of having a team not in last place.

#5 Oranize and do some of everything above and take back our team!!

I am serious!! Lets meet at the Point, figure how much money we have, who we know, elect some leadership, assign committees, and move to take back our team.  How's July 25th sound? I'll even pay for some add time on the radio to kick this off!!!
