    I'll be interested to watch this and see how many fans actually walk out. If I was a player Im not sure if I'd applaud the fans or be pissed at them

    The Pirates fans have long supported the team with sub .500 results for so long it's honestly downright pathetic that they end up being the doormat for the league every year.

    The REAL interesting thing will be to see if the media (i.e., Sports Center, Papers, etc.) actually cover the story and give the people an update on it and the reasons behind it.

    If they don't, you know darn well MLB has a gag order issued ....

    I think Espn is jive for not deleting your threads. But I dont know how well this will do. It is to bring attention the !5 years of losing. Dont you think ownership already knows its been !5 years and isnt just as frustated at some other people

    I would agree and assume the ownership is frustrated, but if they're one of the most profitable franchises in the league in terms of margins (which they are) and NOT doing anything to convince the fans they're serious about being compeitive and winning .... I think the fanship is correct for showing their dissent.

    Im sure the owners had a talk with all the local media about how much coverage they would give this event if it turned out to be something big.

    Reports of 100 to 7000 people were part of the whole protest.

    Yeah I think Nuttings did just that.
