Good managers know you can't be afraid to make change. Leonsis and Caps management have never cared more about the fans opinion than they have the last few years. There's the season ticketholder advisory board and a lot of handholding if you've got a good rep. They're not dummies.

This is a fragile house of cards and they know it.
My point is they're getting competent management (on the whole). Demanding change is just as likely to backfire as it is to push them higher, and I imagine many fans (not to mention Ted) know this.

So yes, it's fragile, but knowing just how much risk is really involved do you really think either side is going to force the issue right now?

I mean, if the Skins turn things around and make a big dent into the winter entertainment budgets throughout the fanbase, then I can see desperation setting in (Caps fans who get tired of spending money on a good-but-not-great product, or management that can't deal with stagnation in the face of tougher competition) but until then I don't know how much uproar to realistically expect.
