Why Control Damage?

It's been twelve (12) days since that wacky Friday news dump about the Atlanta Spirit trying to jettison their (and our) sad-sack hockey team. Since that report, there have been zero (0) public statements or letters to season ticket holders that acknowledge the news and try to explain the situation. Not that I think a letter or public statement would somehow Make Sense of Everything or be anything other than vaguely-worded ass-covering. I just find it curious that there's been no effort whatsoever to reassure the fanbase and/or acknowledge the human disaster that is this hockey organization.

What they have done, though, is send out season ticket renewal kits. So there will be no public statement/apology/acknowledgement of burning shame, but we do get pleas for season ticket renewals. I think they'll find even the diehard renewals more difficult than they expect/take for granted.

I could end this post with a sentence like "what a fucking joke," or something along those lines, but that would be too obvious, so here's an actual video documentary about the Atlanta Spirit:
