There is a letter from the owner now. I really don't know what this was all about, but he seems to blame DK for getting bad information out.


What's the "bad information"? It's all pulled directly from the PiratesFanAdvisor website. It's awful. In fact, the Pirates responded by pulling the endorsement video of Coonelly off of the site.

I followed the entire thing in real time, and I read the letter from the owner that is currently posted on Bucs Dugout. The guy is ridiculous, and he's essentially trying to rip off fans by selling them on the idea that their input will be used by the team.

And DK didn't tweet that the Pirates don't care about their fans. Rather, he was making fun of PiratesFanAdvisor for calling fans who don't join "stupid" and for putting down fans who call in to talk radio or participate in free message boards. Here's DK's tweet:

Dejan Kovacevic ‏@Dejan_Kovacevic Hey, stupid, unsophisticated #Pirates fans: Your favorite baseball team wants nothing to do with you https://piratesfanadvisor.com

Obviously, he's saying that "according to PiratesFanAdvisor," the Pirates don't want anything to do with stupid talk-show or free message board fans.

The guy who runs that site is a real piece of work...

Here it is, so at least some evidence of the now-nuked website will still exist for posterity:

Some found remnants:


-----------------------------------------------------------------

Be part of a community of sophisticated and smart Pirate fans

Pirate Fan Advisors are the most knowledgeable, passionate and sophisticated fans and have affirmed their commitment to being Pirates Fan Advisors by signing the “Fan Pledge.” Typically, these fans are frustrated by the banality of traditional “fan forums” as the majority on those sites are simply not as knowledgeable. The very nature of the Fan Advisor Network means that only those with the deepest knowledge of the Pirates choose to participate creating a unique community for elevated discussion and debate.


The Fan Advisor Network is only for the most passionate, knowledgeable and committed fans. By signing up to become a Pirate Fan Advisor, I confirm that:

I don’t just like the Pirates, I am a zealot who follows them religiously and passionately.

I am willing and able to look at team issues from the perspectives of Pirates ownership, management, players and fans.

I will embrace my advisory role and understand that the Pirates front office will determine how best to utilize the information provided by the weekly Pirate Fan Advisor reports.

I am committed to answering the weekly advisory question on a regular basis and understand that my status as a Pirate Fan Advisor can be revoked as a result of me not providing insight at a minimal level.

I feel that I understand baseball more than the average fan.

I do not believe in “easy answers” and acknowledge that many issues upon which I will be asked to provide insight are difficult.

I am eager to assist the Pirates be a winning organization over the long haul.

I want to help the Pirates succeed, but am independent in my thinking from both players and management.

I can think about Pirates team issues objectively and at times agree with front office decisions and other times disagree.

I recognize that there are times when my opinion is not shared by the majority of other Pirates fans.

Pirate Fan Advisors are required to provide their weekly feedback at a minimum of 80% (i.e, answer the weekly question at least 42 times a year). Failure to consistently answer the question could result in the Fan Advisor Network revoking the Fan Advisor status.
