Where should Fans Main focus be Court Room or Field of Play?
This has been an ongoing saga for a while now and it feels like everyday something new is going on. McCourt going on TV and Radio giving hot air, MLB taking over, Chapter 11. It goes on and on and the fans are getting tired of it. The one thing that I’ve noticed is the drop off in attendance which is due to the fans boycotting games refusing to give McCourt any of their money. As of late to me it seems like almost a lot of focus have been going into whether McCourt will sell the team and MLB trying to get McCourt out rather than games or guys on the field. This week its been something else. Dodgers have a thrilling victory…Next day the Dodgers dominated the news but not cause of the victory. Because they filed for Chapter 11 bankrupcy. Kershaw won NL player of the year and look what little attention that got. Seemed like after the 15-0 win we got a bit of a break from it only for the next day back to Ch 11 and McCourt. Every moment I start to wonder where should our main focus be? on the Field or the Front Office Drama?
Some fans make a mention of the McCourt issue and then talk about the game and what we can do to turn this around while others talk about the McCourt issue then mins before Gametime they’re about the game then back to McCourt issues. Well I can’t speak for the Millions of Dodger fans but my focus is on the field rather than court room. Our Boys in Blue are out on the field playing in almost a half empty stadium worried about turning it around rather than Ownership and If that’s where their focus is then I’m right with them. Im never a with Court room or Ownership smarts but I’m aware McCourt’s duchebagary or poor selfish acts for his personal interest rather than the teams but if the Dodgers will keep on playing then I will keep on cheering and give them my focus and attend games. Now I know others can’t bring themselves to give McCourt any of their money and I can respect that but I refuse to be one of the fans who Boycott the team I grew up loving. I know I turn my attention to whats going on but I also know that I have to let MLB and Bud Selig do the fighting for me to release the Dodgers from an evil, hated, money hungry, Selfish owner in Frank McCourt. I know that what goes on in the court room doesn’t have effect on How many runs our Dodgers get in a Game and it shouldn’t have any affect on my ability to be mad when we lose or happy when we win.
Yes Frank McCourt is a very BAD owner and I do know he will be gone but if the Dodgers aren’t letting it bother them on the field then I will continue to give them my focus. Now I’m not saying their isn’t a way to have an effect on ownership because the Sacramento Kings taught me a valuable lesson in it but what I’m saying is that we are fans of the game of baseball..Not the politics of front office ownership and MLB issues and maybe our boys in blue should get A lot of the attention of cheering them on constantly before during and after the game to give them positive vibes to turning this around rather than putting majority or 60% of it on the MLB/Frank McCourt issue. Everyone has their own ways of worrying and I’m not going to tell you because you are your own person but I alway go back to my road trip for Opening day with my dad. We didn’t spend that money just to see McCourt or hear about Ownership issues..We spent that money to see our Dodger Players play on the field.
