Man oh man, what can you say that is nice about the Monfort brothers right now?  Other than the fact that they did help bring baseball to Colorado about 20 years ago....nothing.  This is getting out of control.   Spend some money on this team and try to win or sell the team to someone who is interested in winning.  Denver has a very supportive and loyal fan base for all of its professional teams.  The waiting list for Bronco season tickets is years long.  We crowd into the Pepsi Center nightly to see the Nuggets and the Avalache play through the good seasons and the bad.  Attendance was good enough at the Rapids games that they built their own brand new facility.  And the Rockies get several million people into those seats at Coors field every year.   The Broncos, Nuggets, Avalanche, Rapids, Outlaws, Crush and Mammoth all do their best to field a winning and competitve team each year.  Pat Bowlen and Stan Kroenke have brought this city 4 major championships in recent years.  All in all the owners in this city do a good job trying keep our pro teams competetive.  However the Monfort boys are the exception.  They continue to mislead the fans by selling on the next best plan they have to win.  But enough is enough.  We have alll had it with your greed and unwillingness to try and field a championship team.  Please just put this team up for sale.  Take your huge profit when it sells and leave our baseball team alone.  Shame on you two for taking advantage of a loyal group of fans in Colorado.  Sell the team and leave town!

Monfort's need to sell the Rockies

Couldn't agree more at least let us build some talent, KEEP THEM and build around our good players dont build good players then deal them for more pocket change... spend a little money to keep the fans interested... because if you have more fiascoes like this last one there will be no fans left..... I will still be a fan of the Rockies but my fanhood is slipping away..... Thanks alot Charlie and Dick
