Yet not only in June but essentially all season we've heard nothing from the Front Office. While this team sets records for futility and is on pace for the worst season in team history the only public comments are the ridiculous post-game platitudes from Pablo. This is a noticeable change from prior years where both Paul Bravo and Tim Hinchey made efforts to interact with the fans and media.
MLS front offices are generally pretty good about at least making public comments, even if they don't really amount to much. You've got Merritt Paulson in Portland, Robb Heineman in KC, and de Grandpre in NY to name a few. They don't always communicate well but they know the importance of showing that there's an effort being made to improve. Meanwhile we get nothing out of the Front Office during the lowest point Rapids fans have been at in years.
In October we heard a lot from the Front Office about how things were going to be different this year. One of the things Tim Hinchey was specifically asked about in that Q&A at the Celtic was the communication from the Front Office, something he said they were working on and that they would invest in. Apparently it still needs work. And quoting Tim again:
We aim to be a well run club that competes in every competition and has the success we wantIf this is a "well run club that competes in every competition"" I'd hate to see a poorly run club. Things are certainly different this year, they're worse. We're out of the USOC and essentially out of the playoff race at the midpoint of the season.
With season ticket renewals starting in 6 weeks or so the Front Office needs to give us a reason to keep buying tickets. Right now it appears that they're satisfied with the awful results which makes me wonder why I should bother investing in this team.
I know my posts are read in Commerce City (Hi Tim!) so this is a call to them. Show us you're paying attention and care about this team.
