Padres Fan Blasts Ownership

Postby Skin Blues » Thu Feb 07, 2013 4:14 pm

This came across my Twitter feed earlier today:

Armed with damning documentary, disillusioned fan takes on Padres

Padres: The Sad Truth

Thought I'd post it here since the disillusioned Padres fan is one David Marver, who used to (still does?) post on here. I remember a bunch of rants about Jake Peavy circa 2004 if memory serves me correctly. The video is also pretty awesome in holding the Padres accountable for years of lies and deception, which I assume is rampant in professional sports. Very well done.

thanks for the links. Just watched the documentary and it was very well done, especially the Ron Burgundy clip.

you should be happy, the M's just locked up the King, if you were a Padre fan right now, you would know that signing would ultimately lead to a trade of a Cy Young winner for 4 pieces of garbage, and only 1 barely average player in Clayton Richard

Fantastic! I'm originally from the East Coast and lived in SD for two years. It was a depressing sport scene. Glad you are taking ownership to task and that it caught the attention of media.

This is fantastic! I don't believe that anyone has signed up for the Padres 30 in 30 article yet. I nominate Marver!

I quite liked it.
I didn't realize/remember that Peavy didn't even make it to his extension....that's some Marlins-esque shady shizz right there :-°
