That is how every Pirates fan should feel. From rediculous prices at the vendors in the stadium to the lackluster team that you are unfortunately a fan of, the average sports fan (or atleast a Pirates fan) should feel cheated. I know all of this first hand, being a Pittsburgh Pirates fan. Every year I am told that we have "promising young prospects" and that we will be a good team in the years to come. This is coming from management and owners of a team that hasn't had a winning season in over more than a decade and a half. And the Pirates wonder why they have under 10,000 fans buying tickets to a MAJOR LEAGUE sporting event. Call me crazy, but maybe it is high time for teams to start showing their fans some respect. Maybe they need to stop jacking up prices for the fans for everything they purchase and actually put the money of the fans to good use to save up and get a quality player, quit giving players that get everything but their clothes knocked off of them every outing they have (Matt Morris) 10 million dollar contracts, and finally, quit giving fans false hope. Do something about it Pirate management instead of saying you will. R.E.S.P.E.C.T., that is what it means to me.
