South Stands FLASHBACK: A simple plan for #RockiesTown

John Reidy | November 22, 2013

This piece by @JohnReidy303 first ran in November, 2013


Dan O’Dowd and Bill Geivett are so far beyond a train wreck of a front office, they’ve moved into “rolling corpse on fire in a desk chair about to fall over into a huge vat of feces” territory.”


We’ll never get rid of the Monforts. That much you should know already. And imploring the Monforts to sell the Rockies is like begging your dog to stop eating cat turds out of the litter box: he’s just going to keep grazing in there as long as there’s a supply.


And you’re the supply. That much the Monforts have known for a long time: they feed off Rockies fans who so desperately want to watch winning baseball, that they show up, season after season to watch a grossly mismanaged team. The Monforts are a mosquito that sucks and sucks but never fills up. We’re waiting for a bloody explosion that never comes.


The current ownership has thoroughly shown they have no idea what they’re doing out on the diamond but they do run one a hell of a ballpark. Coors Field is a top notch facility and should be a feather in the cap of the Monforts if not for the crappy team they trot out every year. It’s baffling how an ownership group can make all the right decisions regarding its facility, but can’t find the broad side of a barn with its team management. Dan O’Dowd and Bill Geivett are so far beyond a train wreck of a front office, they’ve moved into “rolling corpse on fire in a desk chair about to fall over into a huge vat of feces” territory.


The Rockies are worth in excess of $537 million and the Monforts have 537 million reasons to stay the course. But if they won’t sell the team, how about they sell half? The baseball half. To sell half would net them a massive profit and still allow them to make money off everyone who walks through the gates. The Monforts would handle the stadium only, have nothing to do with the day to day operations of the team and would take on the role of benevolent landlords who throw a mean soiree up on the Party Deck. It’s a brilliant plan because since the Monforts are clearly not sharp baseball minds, they are good at running a stadium. Why not let someone else have the headache of running the team and dealing with Mark Kiszla?


Or instead of this elaborate plan, the Monforts could just hire someone competent to take over the baseball operations completely and they wouldn’t have to hold up the gravy train from rolling in at all. The Kroenkes don’t have much to do with the Colorado Avalanche, other than bringing in competent people to run the show, and the Monforts can do the same thing. But instead of selling half the team, they can make their lives less hectic by just stepping out of the way and let the money pile up in their secret vaults deep below the feed lots of Greeley.


It’s a great idea, but forget it Jake, it’s #RockiesTown.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.

    I have figured out some points through your blog post. One other stuff I would like to talk about is that there are various games that you can buy which are designed especially for preschool age kids. They consist of pattern acknowledgement, colors, wildlife, and models. These usually focus on familiarization rather than memorization. This makes little children occupied without sensing like they are studying. Thanks

    Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not disappoint me just as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, however I really thought you would have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you can fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

    One other issue issue is that video games are usually serious in nature with the most important focus on knowing things rather than enjoyment. Although, it has an entertainment aspect to keep your kids engaged, every game is normally designed to work towards a specific experience or curriculum, such as math concepts or scientific research. Thanks for your write-up.
