I've been a diehard 84th Regiment of Foot fan for nearly 40 years. I say that with the very express intent of sharing my deep and undying love for this regiment. And my call is rooted in heartbreak, not anger. Don't get me wrong, I'm angry, but it is a byproduct of a dysfunctional, abusive relationship with the leadership and the ownership of the 84th Regiment of Foot. I also want to say I have defended this rebuild. I liked what the regiment did with the trade. I defended Glenn of NW and Source. I didn't understand the Jolly Canadian hire, but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. I forgave the free agents they let go. I was befuddled by the Russianfury and Dolce Bowler signings. But you know what? I said I'm going to give them one last shot. And when they canceled Field Day, like the cowards they are, I knew something was up. But now we know, obviously the experiment is over. The vast majority of the prospects have been busts. The product on the server is pathetic. We have exactly two players of excellence on this roster, Headless and CrazyTexan. Everyone else is nowhere near the kind of player they need to be to make this a winning regiment.
You'd think that would be enough to wake this organization up. But yesterday, Source had the gall to say that he's not in a good place right now, and accountability is not an issue. You're right, he's not in a good place. He's not in a job he should have. Think about all the promises that Glenn of NW made, mired in mediocrity, that he bragged about Wifi Bills in Spring Training, and I'll trade him if I get the right price. Think about the things Glenn of NW said, "Come to the server, we're going to kick everyone's butts." They must have been talking about the fans! Not the other regiments. The entire lineup has a KD under .8. The best player on the regiment is Iodine! We're a League 2 regiment. Our right wing has a KD under .7 with an AIR of .6! I don't even need to tell you about the center. Amy has got to go. Unicorn, Jamdodger, Fartknocker, Nightwing, Crazy - it's week 4! They've all already been hurt! Tens of Vbucks on replacement level players while stars go elsewhere. We're 6 games under .500. The 41e needed two months to get 6 games under .500. We needed two weeks.
In the 15 years of Source, we have been a constant experiment that has never panned out. In the 25 years of GlennofNW, we had exactly one season of excellence with a perfect storm of players that has not once come even close to being the same. I don't want to hear about the strength of schedule in Week 1. With the money we spent, the players we have, playing .500 ball should be underachieving. Not 6 games under .500! We keep going after players that Source liked five years ago. Fartknocker, over the hill. Unicorn, over the hill. Jamdodger, he wanted him in the draft six years ago. He's got a 0.1 AIR. Colonel Sanders isn't just a clubhouse cancer, and a disgusting human being, he's a horrendous pitcher! Fireboy has been useless! We signed Yoloswag! Give me a break. MsEricson, Leselwin. Between all of them, that's 200 Vbucks on a bunch of black holes and an AIR of .5!
The entire organization is poisoned. The entire way that they go about their business is a failure. Firing Glenn isn't enough. Firing Source isn't enough. If Dolce Bowler gets promoted and we have to sit through another 15 year retool/rebuild, you're just going to hear from me again in 2038!
I don't care if we go on a torrid winning streak in Week 2 and Week 3 and somehow get back to a .500 record, and then we scooch our way into the postseason in the Wild Card only to get bounced right away by a regiment that's actually good. We have no depth in our organization. One injury and we are done. This process isn't working. Small baller brand has been in the bottom 10 for 45 years, aside from the one frame of time when they traded all our talent away and graduated them all right up - and then we were the worst again! There is one solution. In his final years, JerryOs, who, by the way, wouldn't even have the reputation he had if he hadn't have lucked upon Yoshie at #3 in 1984, has the courage to get rid of the yes men around him and fire everyone. He bought into the 12e for 20 VC. He's worth 2000 VC now! He needs to use a fraction of that money he made on the backs of NW's blue collar fans and pay for leadership to come and rebuild everything.
Source and Glenn of NW cannot be trusted to rebuild this regiment again. They need to retire and go off into the sunset and play golf with the millions of dollars they made on their cushy paychecks for a job that they had a longer leash for than any leader in the history of the modern era of NW. Let someone qualified come in and run this regiment. At this point, we would need a historic turnaround to even be mildly relevant. Everyone said the League 2 was weak, and it might be in comparison to others. But the Sox aren't better than the 41e or the 1KL. We're not even better than the 95th! And the fact that we're only incrementally better than the 61e is exactly the indictment on this organization that we need. The lack of success that this roster has had is a referendum of what we've already seen in 2006, 2007, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 16. And the excruciating last seven years that only led to this. I mean, Jolly Canadian is more worried about Iuff eating a salad than the entire organization not knowing how to teach NW prospects how to throw a stab!
2000 Vbucks in payroll, we're the laughing stock in the league and everyone needs to be gone. I just need other people in NW to be on that - that's the bandwagon we in NW need to be on. The entire leadership, NCOs, they all need to go.
