Wednesday Wizards Report
Christmas has come and gone and as Wizards fans we didn’t get what we wanted from ole Saint Nick. Ted Leonsis hasn’t fired Ernie Grunfeld yet, John Wall is not back, and the losses keep piling up. So since our Christmas wish list didn’t make it Santa Claus, it’s time to write a letter to the owner…
Dear Ted Leonsis,
This Wizards season has brought us plenty of pain and sorrow, just like the previous ones have and you have yet to make changes that all of us Wizards fans are begging and pleading for. Ernie Grunfeld is continuing to sink our ship and piss off the fans who continue to support the Wizards through these tough and painful losing seasons. Ted, we are tired of losing, we are tired of the bonehead draft classes, we are tired of the cap sinking trades, we are tired of the lackluster free-agent additions, and we are tired of these faces on our bench. So for the love of god, please make some changes in 2013 before it’s too late!
Why not fire Grunfeld? Is it because you are trying to save face that you gave him a contract extension after what now is going to be 5 straight losing seasons? Because it surely can’t be because you have faith in this man to right the ship that is currently wrecked worse than the Titanic.
Ted, please fire Grunfeld! I’m a lifelong Wizards fan and while I’ll never give up on this team, it is way overdue for some major changes and they need to happen now. I know it will be hard to hire a replacement mid-season, but we need to fire Grunfeld before the trade deadline. That way if we do hire someone in-season, hopefully some trade-deadline deals can be made to start re-shaping the roster for next year. We need to change now though. Stop waiting, because it’s continuing to hurt the fan base. There’s nothing worse than entering the Phone Booth and seeing almost as many, if not more, of the opposing team’s fans at the game. You know it’s bad when you are watching games on TV and the only way you can tell if we are playing a home game is by whose logo is on the court, not the crowd.
If you start making changes now, it will sure excite the fan base Ted. So as a die-hard fan, and speaking on behalf of all the Wizards faithful, LET”S MAKE SOME CHANGES!!!!!
