I love the enthusiasm, but I'm not super fond of the blackout idea.
Here's why: truefans
You know there are tons of them, ranging from Dr. Denial to Seņor Senile. Can't swing a dead cat and not hit one.
We've got momentum, we've got media coverage, but the one thing we neither have nor need is....majority.
A plane flies a banner overhead and it looks like we're huge. A billboard displays our wit and brilliance and we're everywhere.
Trying a show of strength with Tshirts at arrowhead? The truth of our smallish numbers come out. Media laughs. Makes our job harder.
Banners and billboards always give the impression of a number GREATER than reality.
By our own admission, the number of people wearing blackout Tshirts will be far LESS than the reality of our numbers.
If pressure and influence is our goal, we need to avoid stratagems that undersell our numbers.
It may be too late to stop the blackout, but I think it will make us look sparse and easily marginalized.
