Is it just me, or is this the stupidest email ever sent?

Postby BF44 » Mon Jan 04, 2010 5:59 pm

So in my email today, I get this email from the Blues entitled "Season Ticket holder" Exclusive Access.

I can post the whole lengthy thing if you like, but this email -- WHICH CAME FROM THE BLUES -- contains verbatim these two articles (among others):

Murray's tough approach may have alienated young Blues – Post-Dispatch

and

Inside the NHL: Wish Payne luck, he's going to need it – Globe-Democrat

Am I crazy, or is this one really messed up way to get people to buy tickets to your team? By basically endorsing articles that say "The old coach sucked, and the new one won't do much better?"

Am I missing something here????????

I once got an email regarding the Anger of the Guns, so the answer to this topic is a decided no.

It's back. Though I believe they said it was only going to be electronic (at least at first).


Personally I didn't mind the e-mail. The one thing you can't get here is articles on the team. No matter how bias or propaganda it is, I enjoy reading anything about my Blues considering how little is written.

Hell, often it’s more fun to read and react to something you don’t agree with/like.

I thought it was a bit bizarre.

It went out to ticket holders only didn't it? I guess they figure they've already got your money, so here's some articles.

That's the first thing I thought as well.
