Cub fan Bill is putting together a formal protest against the Tribune Company. He has been on the SCORE a couple of times in recent weeks promoting this protest. The protest is scheduled for this upcoming Saturday, May 27 prior to the Cubs/Bravos game at Wrigley Field. Bill is a Cub fan who, like so many of us, is tired of all the losing. I e-mailed Bill and he sent me this information on the fan protest:
Below is a copy of an email i sent to people that have shown interest in the protest. Anything you can do to help the cause would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help!
We need confrimation as to how many people we know are committed to joining us for the protest this saturday may 27th, at 11:30am in front of Wrigley Field. Just send an email back to let us know that you will be there.
This is a peaceful protest and understand that this protest is against the Tribune Co.and not the Cubs. We as fans are tired of being taken for granted! We have financially supported the Cubs for 25 years under Tribune Co. ownership and we're tired of losing! Our message to the Tribune Co.: sell the team or put a team on the field that represents the financial support us fans have given them throughout the years! If you're not sure you can make it, please don't tell us you'll be there, we need an accurate count. If you are attending, please make up a sign, and make sure there is no profanity on it. Feel free to use any idea that represents the message we're trying to send! Should you join us, you are responsible for your own actions. We might have shirts to pass out also.
Thanks for your support.
He would love to have fans join him in this cause. If any of you are interested in participating in Bill's fan protest e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org Hopefully somebody will take some pictures. We'll post them here at 1060west. Good Luck.
