Reader: The Rockies suck so hard that fans shouldn't care if there's a f*cking game

IsThereaFuckingRockiesGameToday.com, recently spotlighted by Jonathan Shikes, is an ultra-practical website intended to help LoDo dwellers prepare themselves whenever an onslaught of baseball fans is expected to hit the area. Many of our readers were amused by the concept, but less so by the current team. Here's one example.

ummm. who cares...we should all drink beer in the CO sun somewhere else...til the owners pull their heads out of their ass and invest in a winning team, they don't deserve our money -- right now they are following the cleveland indians model.

Aren't the rockies a corporate welfare team like the broncos?  


My idea of hell is going to a baseball game that never ends.

I tried to like the Rockies for years but the ownership of that team is just terrible. The stadium is great but it's like dick is just trying to gift wrap a turd.

Couldn't agree more. We are the new Chicago Cubs. An extremely loyal profitable fan base and an owner with ZERO intentions of fielding a competitive team. Hell, we don't even have a manager at this point.

The Indians were a fluke. I follow both teams and they suffer from poor ownership. It's not easy to build up a team like Tampa and compete in a small market. You have to have more luck than teams that can afford to sign real players. Which is a bummer for the fans who pay good $$$ to go see mediocre talent that is all but assured of not making the playoffs or even sniffing the WS.

The rockies have guaranteed ticket sales from surrounding states that don't have major league baseball like wyoming, nebraska, utah & new mexico. these people don't actually care who wins the game, they're just in it for the show. so the rockies don't have to try to be any good, and they hope you never realize it.

I would hate to buck the trend, but here it goes... The Rockies need to win, they don't need to go to or win the pennant every year just be a contender, make it fun to watch the game rather than fun to go to Coors.

The point of the app is to let people know if they have to deal with extra downtown traffic or not. It doesn't even matter if the team "sucks" is "great", if you're a fan or not, or if you even know that a sport like baseball exists.

Be silent. Win or lose the CO Rockies are MY TEAM. Obey, or I will have a horde of Daleks descend upon your head yelling 'Ex-TER-min-ate'. PS-For the record I couldn't care less about the Broncos. Deal with that one!
