Awesome! This guy speaks for alot of us!





http://www.kansascity.com/2012/08/22/3774363/kansas-citian-behind-glass-must.html


Last month, Joseph Accurso and buddies from his college days were playing poker, talking about another lost Royals season and wondering whether there was a way to express their anger over the lack of progress under owner David Glass.
Yes, they decided. Take it to the people.

Accurso bought a half-page ad in today’s editions of The Star to present a letter to Glass, imploring him to sell the team.

“I’m a lifelong Kansas City guy, who like a lot of people loves the Royals,” said Accurso, 37, a commercial real-estate broker. “My buddies and I were tired of complaining about it and decided to do something.”

Accurso created a website, no-more-glass.com to solicit donations for the newspaper space, and more than 150 people contributed $5,100, sending anywhere from $5 to $250.
The seven-paragraph letter opens by thanking Glass for buying the team in 2000.
It ends with a plea.

“By any measure when accounting for wins and losses, the records will show the fans have rolled up their sleeves, in the only way Kansas Citians know how, and met our commitments to the franchise we love. There is no measure that can support the same sentiment for your records. It’s time to win again, Mr. Glass. I implore you, Mr. Glass, to sell the team immediately, enjoy the rest of your days with your family without the burden of team ownership, and accept our thanks for keeping the team in Kansas City.”

The Royals say their mission has never changed.
“We love our fans, and they’ve backed us in difficult times,” said Kevin Uhlich, Royals senior vice president for business operations. “If anybody out there believes we have motives other than to bring a championship here, they’re mistaken.

“Nobody wants it more than our chairman (Glass) and (general manager) Dayton Moore. There is no lack of commitment. It’s sad there are those who want to spin it differently.”
Accurso, who said he attends a couple of games a year and watches them all on television, said he’s not sure what to expect from the grass-roots campaign.

“I’m not naďve enough to think I can write a letter, Glass will read it and say, ‘I should sell the team,’ ” Accurso said. “But I felt like, ‘Can I take some initiative and at least get a conversation started?’ ”

The recent run of Royals success — a 13-8 August record — didn’t deter Accurso.
“The Royals tend to play better at the end of the year and give everybody hope for the next season,” said Accurso, who was 10 when the 1985 World Series title was the Royals’ last postseason appearance. “I guess after 27 years, I’ve earned the right to be a little cynical.”

Amen !

When you don't play/pay to win you dishonestly undermine the fan base who make the owner/players wealthy knowing full well you aren't competing to win.

Glass has got to go plain and simple.;)

Glass seems to be staying out of the way now, and the roster has dramatically improved over the end of the Baird era. They don't have a bargain basement payroll. I don't really see Glass as the problem anymore.

I know that shouting "Wal Mart team!!" prints money from dumb rednecks, but if you want to blame anyone, point the guns of criticism at Dayton Moore. He's had enough time to get this team to the postseason.

Besides, so many Royals fans have been downright nasty about SKC even while the Royals organization has done nothing but support them. I think it would benefit the Royals more than Sporting and this fan has real reservations about that.

Glass is a joke, pay minimum wage and max profits is his only philosophy. I bet he doesn't even know the game of baseball. It's a joke and I don't understand at all why anybody would actually go to the games and support this farm team for all of the other teams.

Glass has allowed major spending in foreign development and for signing drafted players... so he gets a pat on the back for those things. However he hasn't loosten the purse stings with the major league club to be able to really compete for good starting pitching via free agency yet... while at the same time allowing "Our Time" to be the teams slogun this year. If it was supposed to be our time then at least giving Dayton all the power ($) he needed to improve that in the off season would have been the priority.

I don't think the team would be moved, in fact the SKC ownership group is a KC based group. If I responded wrongly to a post or lead people to believe I thought the team would be moved then I wasn't clear.

Owners own teams, they don't run them. Sure they make money available but in most cases they hire people and let them do their jobs. (don't look at Jerry Jones here) If they have the money I don't see how owning a second KC sports franchise would distract from building SKC's brand.

Do you follow SKC? Those owners are extremely involved in the team. I'm surprised they have time for their real jobs. I don't see how they could commit that much time and energy to two teams. Especially such a miserable franchise as the KC Royals have become. The Wizards were at least competitive over the previous decade. The Royals haven't been for a LONG time.

If they can do both equally well the I'm all for it. But if it means SKC suffers at all then I say, no thanks. I'd rather have two sets of owners doing things equally well than one doing it half assed for two teams.

Look, I get that there are a lot of people in KC and in cities around the country who despise soccer for whatever reason. But to generalize Royals fans as a group of people who have been "downright nasty" about the local soccer club is dishonest.

Probably. But then, they are probably also Chiefs, Jayhawks, Tigers, etc. fans as well.

No I don't follow SKC. All I know is that they're a good team and have built a good brand. If their ownership is hands on that's fine. I'm saying it's not generally the rule or the norm and isn't necessary for them to do the same if they were to own the Royals. Hire a good GM and give him money... or keep Dayton and give him money.

I am not sure how you link to radio shows. Again, Google it. Nick Wright used to field calls constantly about how he should stop covering soccer and cover the Royals. Keitzman still does. 610s coverage has pretty much dropped off the radar since he left. They have a few hosts who will interview players and have a radio show but they have no one like Nick Wright there pimping the team or the sport any longer. 810 has jumped on the bandwagon. Jack Harry was one of the biggest dickheads in KC regarding soccer and SKC.

A number of times I've posted on SKC articles on the KC Star. Less now than last year as I think they've realized how ridiculous they look defending perpetual losers and saying a successful franchise sucks.

That's all fine and dandy. I just can't see many of the SKC ownership operating like that. Maybe Zach could as he knows them better. They just seem to be the type of people who are in 110% or not at all.

I have mixed emotions about the whole thing. I think they could and maybe should do it but maybe not for another four or five years. I'm not sure the Royals could or should wait that long.

You should do some research on how they operate before you decide you want them. But when you do you will realize that anything less is going to be unfortunate for the Royals and KC. I think Sporting Club is laying a new blueprint for how sports ownership should operate and WILL in this town in the future. Really, seeing out of town owners who collect bank deposits and are barely fans is really very sad. The Truman Sports Complex as a whole is sad.

Our owners go and sit in with the fans. You can find them strolling around the Members Club BEFORE and after the game. Shake hands. Share a beer. They sent the US Open Cup championship cup to the Cauldron to be with the fans after WE won. They post on Twitter and Facebook. They interact with the fans. They consider us one of them and them one of us...

Yeah, they do stupid shit like raise ticket prices after two years which piss off people but it's hard to be mad when they are producing a wining product and are so accessible. Unlike our other teams which routinely raise prices win or lose and are only in town on game days.

Oh, come on. sheesh. This "we get no respect" attitude is exactly why soccer isnt followed the way baseball and football are here. Kevin Keitzman had one of the owners on weekly and ranted and raved about SKC. If these guys owned the royals, it would bring more credibility to the soccer club and more of a unified stance from fans. It would be nothing but positive.

You are wrong as usual, almost every skc fan is a royals fan. I also see about a dozen skc jersies each royals game. If a royals fan is being negative, it is not because of skc, it is probably because they are talking to you.

Edit, read further that you are talking out your ass again with no facts. There is a reason why you always see negative responses: your viewpoints are beyond reality and most people dislike you for it.

Yeah, Keitzman got on board last year when his kids kept asking to go to SKC games and would whine and cry when they were told they were going to see the Royals instead. He couldn't bribe them to go. He did this fabulous ten minute rant last season where he compared and contrasted the Royals and Sporting. He's still not a big soccer fan. I think he's more a fan of the SCK experience than he is of soccer. I think he likes it because his kids do and because it's good business. I've heard him say numerous times he's not about watching other leagues or teams just to watch soccer.

Whatever, he's on board because he knows it's where the growth is. The average age of a Chiefs season ticket holder is 42.something. The average age of the SKC season ticket holder is 29.something. I bet the Royals STH would be even older than the Chiefs. Yes, the money lies with the older season ticket base but the future growth lies with the younger one.

FWIW, SKC does not need the Royals to bring credibility to it in any way shape or form. They've been honored worldwide for their management, facililty and work on the field. If anything, SKC ownership brings the Royals some measure of credibility and, most importantly what has been sorely lacking for a LONG time, POSSIBILITY.

Of course, other than giving away free t-shirts, the Royals have discovered new and interesting ways to fail PR.

I'm not so sure that selling the team would keep it here in KC....

This isn't football where the specter of the team going to LA is around. The main cities who might be looking for a baseball franchise (Portland, Buffalo, OKC) would not be any better options. The only possibility might be in Vegas which the league would never approve.

If SKC owners are the bestest on earth, then what’s with the worry that they will suddenly leave SKC in the dust if they buy the Royals?

And I have yet to see any proof or even backing up the statement that Royals fans have been “nasty” to SKC. The only thing I heard after that was “people on the radio didn’t want to talk about soccer.”

And what in the f**k does this topic have to do with soccer anyway?

The Glass family doesn't measure "winning" in terms of baseball wins and losses.
The measure winning in terms of "dollars." Like buying a team for less than $100 million, and then if they DO sell it, sell for $400 million.

That's a world series win in Wally World.

The fans of SKC are Duhinse and Zach. That should tell you the demographics of MLS right there. If the Cerner boys want to buy the Royals more power to them, but MLB is little different than a Triple A soccer team.
