Feeling a bit nauseated with all the talk about the classless fans. Ratto nails why the rage that was on display last night was justified.
Here is Ratto's advise on how a humbler Joe Lacob might respond to yesterday evening's great time out:
"I know. I know. We haven’t gotten it right yet. We got handed a bad situation, but either we misjudged how bad it is or we haven’t gotten it all figured out yet. I shouldn’t have promised you a playoff, and that’s on me. You’re entitled to more proof than this, and I get how pissed you are about this."
""In fact, don’t be patient with us. We don’t deserve your patience. We don’t have the right to it, and we won’t until we have given you what you really want – a team that can make you proud of its history. I’m glad you booed me instead of Chris Mullin, because he is blameless. And you should keep booing me, and Peter Guber, and all of us, until you stop having to wait for what everybody else gets more often than we’ve given it to you."
