Kudos GAD to standing up for that. I think it would make a statement, but agree that it would just get shut down and ruin a good thing.

I really think the best option is to try to get public forums to talk about it. Like WSSP, TWC 32, JS, etc. Maybe that will get some more people talking, etc. The problem, like MD said, is we have a small percentage of die hards p*ssed off and 99% of the State who don't care. They are more worried about Chris Narvelson's comeback, fundamental Badger basketball, and who the Packers are targeting in the draft. You can't carry a show on Bucks anymore. Majority of callers want to talk other stuff.

And I really wonder what guys like Paschke, McGlocklin, Ted, and some of their office workers TRULY think of the organizations direction when off the clock. I know alot of these guys are probably getting close to retirement, so maybe they're just putting in their last years of work. But I would have to think realistically they realize the team is spinning its wheels.

There's the rub.

No one wants to talk about the Bucks because they suck, but thats exactly why they should be talked about.

The bolded part is difficult, considering Bill Michaels is currently airing a Ted Thompson press conference from the NFL combine. Then again, it is the Bill Michaels show so.....

It's more like 95% of the state doesn't care, 4% think the swag twins and our "go for it" mentality is awesome, and 1% are pi$$ed off.

Yeah, a lot of people that I know that are 'Bucks fans' are absolutely delusional and supportive of every move the Bucks make. Posters of Monta Ellis in their apartments, etc. We are a rare breed on this board, there's not enough people that think like us, or that give a rip at all.

#8 is not a goal. Nobody is happy with just #8 spot. There are only 2 paths we could take. One is through lottery and another is step by step. Some of us realized that no matter what we say it will not be through lottery. So I say shut up and support what you have. Only 30 towns on this planet have NBA team and our is top 16 right now with young players all around.

Maybe the the entire group doesn't care about today's moves and are perfectly fine with the status quo. But from the looks of this thread there are some from the group that don't like the management.

So take a stand and really make a statement. A bagnight would mean nothing compared to members of the vocal group that everyone notices not showing up.

But don't the bucks sanction/pay for sector 7? If so vacating the section would probably just result in the team cancelling the whole program (if they're not already planning to at the end of the season)...


Everyone is wasting their time talking about doing anything involving Sector 7 (the new Squad 6). That is not going to happen on my watch. Never. I help run Sector 7, for those that don't know, or may have forgotten. And trying to circumvent me and go directly to my members won't work either. First, I would absolutely find out. I'm in regular contact with almost every member and personal friends with many of our members. Second, I've been given broad discretion on how to fill the section, so even if somehow people could convince a number of my members to not show up, etc., those seats wouldn't be empty. I would just fill those spots with people already in the arena who I give Bucks gear to (t-shirts normally tossed out in t-shirt toss, etc.)

Again, there's no point to discussing it. Squad 6 / Sector 7 has been one of the best ideas this organization has been a part of during Senator Kohl's tenure, a tenure that I have been one of the most vocal critics of. If Sector 7 were to engage in some sort of protest, it would ABSOLUTELY be shut down. I've put a TON of time into sustaining it and making sure it doesn't wither and die. It's something extremely worthwhile for the franchise and its fan base. I will not risk sacrificing it when there are other alternatives for people to show displeasure and effect change. I have always envisioned Squad 6, Sector 7, and whatever it might be called in the future, to outlast our current front office, owner, and even myself.


I am plenty critical of the decisions made by this organization, here, on facebook, on the radio, in person, etc.
So I am on board with people expressing their displeasure and hopefully getting Senator Kohl to realize that what we are doing is NOT working, has not worked, really cannot work, and must be changed.

It will change. Jesus was killed and now everybody loves him. Spinoza was excluded from Jewish society and now he has his street in Tel Aviv.

On 27 July 1656, the Talmud Torah congregation of Amsterdam issued a writ of cherem (Hebrew: חרם, a kind of ban, shunning, ostracism, expulsion, or excommunication) against the 23 year old Spinoza. The following document translates the official record of the cherem:

The Lords of the ma'amad, having long known of the evil opinions and acts of Baruch de Espinoza, have endeavord by various means and promises, to turn him from his evil ways. But having failed to make him mend his wicked ways, and, on the contrary, daily receiving more and more serious information about the abominable heresies which he practiced and taught and about his monstrous deeds, and having for this numerous trustworthy witnesses who have deposed and born witness to this effect in the presence of the said Espinoza, they became convinced of the truth of the matter; and after all of this has been investigated in the presence of the honorable chachamin, they have decided, with their consent, that the said Espinoza should be excommunicated and expelled from the people of Israel. By the decree of the angels, and by the command of the holy men, we excommunicate, expel, curse and damn Baruch de Espinoza, with the consent of God, Blessed be He, and with the consent of all the Holy Congregation, in front of these holy Scrolls with the six-hundred-and-thirteen precepts which are written therein, with the excommunication with which Joshua banned Jericho, with the curse with which Elisha cursed the boys, and with all the curses which are written in the Book of the Law. Cursed be he by day and cursed be he by night; cursed be he when he lies down, and cursed be he when he rises up; cursed be he when he goes out, and cursed be he when he comes in. The Lord will not spare him; the anger and wrath of the Lord will rage against this man, and bring upon him all the curses which are written in this book, and the Lord will blot out his name from under heaven, and the Lord will separate him to his injury from all the tribes of Israel with all the curses of the covenant, which are written in the Book of the Law. But you who cleave unto the Lord God are all alive this day. We order that no one should communicate with him orally or in writing, or show him any favor, or stay with him under the same roof, or within four ells of him, or read anything composed or written by him.


Spinoza Street is now in central Tel Aviv. 8-)

And there lies one of the issues that is hard to solve. The joke about 8 seed banners may be as close as you can get to pulling this off as some like emunney have suggested.

The bag night will just be taken by the majority of fans as "well I know we suck...but we're a small market and we're trying to win! We keep trading for "better" players!"

The Packers took one of the only routes of proving the n00b casual fan wrong (sadly I think this was the majority as well). They shut up all the guys saying "GOD, WE NEED TO STOP DRAFTING RECEIVERS I'VE NEVER HEARD OF FROM WESTERN MICHIGAN AND SIGN BERNARD BERRIAN." And then the whole Favre/Rodgers thing leading to people burning their Packer stock and creating firetedthompson.com.

They just won the Super Bowl and stopped all that nonsense.

The majority of those same fans who care about the Bucks think we suck because the NBA doesn't cater to small markets. They get excited by these Monta trades and are perplexed when it fails.

You'll have to somehow make the fans aware that you are pi$$ed off AND educate them as to WHY they should be pi$$ed off all in one swing.
