We all know that 69Danny has a mad crush on me, and stalks me all over the place.

But, getting back to the original post,

Why is this Matt Weiters fella so popular around here?

I mean, he doesn't even play for the Pirates, does he?

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Still waiting for evidence that Stan Savaran actually said it...



Ask Rod, he indirectly quoted Savaran. I was merely stating Sarvaran is credible source. IF he did say it, I'd tend to take him at his word.

I'm not. I'm assuming that Rod is lying in claiming that Savran said it.

Lol.. but wasn't it Nuttings Father who ran the show before that? And, I'm sure his son was sitting along side him during that process as well.


Nope, McClatchy was incharge...



McClatchy was a member of Major League Baseball's executive council and the labor and international committees. At some point, which is not entirely known because the Pirates are a private corporation, G. Ogden Nutting and his family became the plurality and then majority owners in the franchise.

Hmm.. not entirely known, private corporation.. wonder why..

Yes, they became the majority owner, but McClatchy continued to run the franchise.

You are not a real Pirate Fan.

Any fan that would rather invent apologies and excuses for an owner, than desire a winning team, is not a true Pirate Fan.

Period.

If you want to blame somebody blame McClatchy, not Nutting. McClatchy should be in jail for murder, because he killed this team

And those who think that supporting the owner and desiring a winning team are mutually exclusive is deluded. If the owner is doing things that are furthering the team's chances of winning, then why would you discredit those things purely based on who is doing them?
