Dear Atlanta


I must admit, I have been to your city twice, and I didn't really like it.  Good areas turn into bad areas, and vice-versa, in the span of a block.  Traffic sucks.  The Metro is too confusing and you have to wait an eternity for the bus. Hartsfield-Jackson makes me feel like an ant.

And yet, I cannot truly hate you.  You make Coca-Cola Zero, which, as I don't drink, is my addiction of choice.  And, moreover you are getting screwed.

And I mean screwed.  Royally, totally screwed.  Your Thrashers (and they are your Thrashers) were never given a chance, and you were never given a chance yourself.  How could you have been?  Ownership was never concerned with the team or you.  They should have renamed themselves the "Atlanta Anita McCambridge Group".  The Thrashers were a tax -, the onion rings they really didn't want but had to get with the Hawks burger they were craving.  But instead of sharing the rings with someone else in the car, they're tossing them out the window at speed to some random passerby. 

This probably doesn't help much.  But know this: We know you're getting screwed.  We stand with you.  You don't deserve this.  Atlanta could be an amazing hockey market.  You need ownership that cares, and not much more. 

Thank you for the last 12 years.  We will miss you - an we hope you get one more chance, this time with capable, invested ownership.
