Way ahead of you, CCJ. I haven't gone to a Wizards game this season and will not attend one until Ernie is fired.

Normally, I go to 5 games a year minimum.

Ted is really the problem. Ernie staying for so long is just a symptom of that ineptitude and cluelessness that starts from the very top. Ernie isn't the best GM, but Ted really needs to look at himself in the mirror and realize that something has to change ACROSS THE BOARD. It's no coincidence that all his teams are bottom feeders now.

Ted is the boss. He makes the final decisions. And if he leaves the final decisions to Ernie, it is still on Ted.

I have boycotted games on TV as well. Primarily because I've been busy but I've had time where I could have watched games. But I chose to do better things like vacuuming the apartment.

A middle finder to Ted Leonsis and his butt buddy Ernie Grunfeld.

Today's Ted's Take. Sounds like it was written by Ernie himself.

I haven't actively boycotted but more or less subconsciously I tune out. This board is my only wizards interaction. My friends all only talk college ball or Caps. The only NBA that I seek out are Houston Rockets highlights and schadenfreud in the Lakers circus season.

On the general board I started a thread that asks, "Can the League Force Ted Leonsis to Sell?"

I hope just one person who has media exposure, like Bill Simmons, sees that. Ted really is the worst professional sports owner (I included your rankings post, bgroban, in my post). Ernie Grunfeld is hands down the worst GM in the NBA.

I wish both were not a part of the Washington basketball franchise.

Oh Lord a coup d'etat over Jordan Crawford. The only thing I have left to say is best expressed in face palms.
..let's keep in mind that while the Wizards were trading for Okafor and Ariza, giving away a draft pick and cap room, bypassing the free agent market and rejecting a trade for Harden, Leonsis was publicly congratulating himself for being smart. - Nivek

Ted thinks that this trade created roster flexibility.

What is this even... wh... TROLOLOLOL. The joke, as always, is on the fans.

It isn't just about Crawford it is also about all the deals leading up to this. If you can't see that i suggest a visit to the eye doctor.

Meh, Wizards games can still be fun to go to. I was in "boycott" mode earlier this year, but went to a couple games recently(Bulls and Knicks wins)and had a good time. Ted's not gonna sell anytime soon so boycotting isn't gonna do jack.

There's a million posts already dedicated to how sucky Leonsis and Grunfeld are.

Crawford is certainly not the straw that broke the camels back. Acting as if it was is absurd.

I'm boycotting both the Wizards and Caps for the foreseeable future. It's httr, vamos United, let's go Nats and Hoya Saxa for me until some significant changes are made within those organizations.

:D

Crawford for nothing is like the straw that broke the camel's back...

It's not about Crawford but rather it's about knowing I wanted Millsap, who went #47, when this GM burnt a first round pick on Pecherov. This GM has trumped that by giving away a 5th pick for nothing and by drafting Vesely with the #6. To prove Ernie has learned absolutely NOTHING since the time he sold the round 2 pick that could have been Blair, or since he wasted the #32 pick on Satoransky; now Ernie doesn't even try to get the round 2 pick he should have from the Celtics.

In this draft there is a PG named Nate Wolters who can do something Wall can't (Wolters can shoot). He can be had for a late round 2 pick. So can Michael Snaer.

The Wizards have 2 round two picks this season, but they could always secure the rights to players that might be worth something. That is how you accumulate assets. Ernie don't know nothing bout that!

I would be just as pleased if every time the show Leonsis or Ernie's face at least 1000 fans simultaneously loudly boo them. I would boo the hell out of Grunfeld and Leonsis. Their work truly is disgusting.


I think Jim actually DID this a time or two. I recall seeing pictures posted -- and I think he also made it into the Washington Post (a photo of him wearing the bag over his head).


this is true

somewhere in the depths of RealGM/wizards is a thread called Paper Bags Folks (or something like that)

The camels back was broken last summer. This trade was just a reminder of it.
