This guy needs to mellow out. Anyone know a good way to do that in Colorado?
[A] season ticket holder… sent an email to the Rockies fan feedback line July 5t, writing, “The Monforts have no business owning a baseball team and their missteps in hiring ‘the good old boys’ for front office and management positions is solid evidence of their ineptitude. They have ruined pro baseball in this region while generating millions of dollars in profit.’ ”
... the next day, July 6 at 6:47 p.m., [owner Dick] Monfort personally emailed the fan the following: “By the way you talk maybe Denver doesn’t deserve a franchise, maybe time for it to find a new home. Thanks.”
The message was sent from Monfort’s iPad and in a phone call with CBS4 Thursday night, Monfort confirmed sending the email.
“I sort of remember,” said Monfort. “I do remember that. I was rapid firing it.”...
He went on to explain that, “What I meant to say was maybe we, the owners, don’t deserve a franchise.”
Monfort was adamant that despite what he wrote, he was not threatening to move the team and did not mean to write, “Denver doesn’t deserve a franchise.”....
This marks the second time in a week a controversial email has emerged from Monfort in response to an unhappy fan. A Grand Junction man, Michael Ferguson, emailed the team following a loss July 4 expressing his displeasure with the product on the field, to which Monfort responded, “If product and experience that bad don’t come!.”
