What many pro sports owners don’t understand.

They may own the team, but it’s the fans that create the passion, loyalties and the electric atmosphere. The fans don’t really care who the owners are as long as they support the team. The owner who doesn’t understand the fans are the major asset usually fails.

The worst owners (Snyder, Monfort) are the ones who think they actually have a clue about the game and thinking they know more than the GM. The Kroenke’s are terrible Premier League owners because they don’t understand English football fans.

My guess is that Bridich knew he was ruined in baseball by following Monfort’s wishes and got out now. I’m no Bridich fan, but much of his now ruined career is on Monfort’s meddling a$$.

Sad for Rockies players, fans and employees in that it can’t get better until Monfort sells.
