Pioli is a cull.
It's so true. I was fortunate to receive some great free seats with a parking pass yesterday. I've never been a season ticket holder, so I've only really felt the emotional pain of fandom, not the financial pain that many of you have. I took my 10 year old son. Assuming we'd paid for the two seats ($240, midfield 20 rows up), a parking pass ($32!!!), 2 hot dogs and 2 drinks......I'd have spent $300 on that joke of a game yesterday. I don't know how some of you do it. I respect the heck out of our season ticket holders who continually subject themselves to this franchise's mismanagement and misfortune, all while giving up huge sums of money to do so.
To think that this fan base as a whole is now being criticized in any way is a complete farce.
