Thank you FanofdO for your very insightful post. The issue in Erie is that we have a GM who also has majority ownership in the team, he answers to no one but himself....just a really bad situation. He also surrounds himself with people that don't challenge him because they know they are gone if they do. Word is that his previous attempts to sell the team have failed because he wants a contract where he can still run the team for another 4 years...can you imagine? So you are right, the only thing we as fans can do is stop buying tickets and hope that gets someone's attention.
