Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

Wow,

I honestly was going to come in and say kind words. Really. As DRave repeatedly pointed out, you guys took initiative, tried to do something that you felt was worthy, and I believe you would look back on it as a memorable venture. I was. and I believe those things.

But now, it looks even more petty. mImpetert, will you consider changing the wording to something less offensive and more respectable. I had suggested something positive earlier in the thread and you said yeah that was good, but too bad everything is in place. Seems like if you can change the signage method, you could change the phrases used to something less childish and more thoughtful.

First please read the email posted above. If you had donated the 20 bucks like you promised (due to not reading the original ad, and falsely accusing us of hiding) which you then backed out on you would have the option to get your money back. Again please read things before making attacks on our integrity.

I agree. I like the idea but the message needs to change. It should deal more with the direction we want the team to take as opposed to a cheap shot at the owner. He won't sell the team so we should focus on what he could do to make the team better.

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

Okay the truck was driving around Landover yesterday. We on working on getting a schedule of events that the truck will target. I will let everyone know when its finalized.

Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - Kapipal

Also the back of the truck says "Fire Vinny" in the opposite color scheme. The sign also lights up so it should look really good at night.

It's too bad that you guys put all of that effort and money into a venture that has a complete fail message. I can't understand why you couldn't adopt a more constructive message.

Snyder has no reason to pay attention to that truck.

Lol...funny tooooo funny. I like the effort, unfortunately Snyder is not selling, but at least he is understanding the message of enough is enough...any new coverage up there with the truck?

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

That was before the new, better alternative came along .

Like the others I like the idea but not the wording. For the mobile sign ads you probably could've said something along the lines, "we the fans feel a change of philosophy and way of conducting business is best for a long term competent team."

Maybe not in those exact words but a sign saying,"Sell OUR Team Danny Boy" is a big waste of money. He's not gonna read that and think, "of course, what they are saying is I need to change my ways. Well I've been listening to mobile sign ads all my life so there's no reason to stop now. All hail mobile sign ads!"

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

He posted pics on the kapipal site. just to re-blow the horn - the sign could easily have been worded differently:
One side: Dan - Championships are built, not bought
or: Build for the future - Remember the legacy

The other side: list our SB years, or three trophies if the printer could do that
-or-
list the FO teams that won the SBs

but I knew you weren't changing it. shame.

Well this would have made sense...however in typical Snyder/Cerrato move it didn't (oh irony).
