I'll offer to help PR. Been keeping the peoples money straight for the packages for the troops and nzoners bash.

I coin the phrase "Arrowhead Spring" last night in post 408, nobody says a damn thing about it, and then it shows up in a YardBarker story? I feel a bit violated.

Well I guess I contributed something to the whole thing, if not money yet.

I did just making sure that the outer towners get the credit for helping out, that this is not just a local effort but a national effort. That's all.

Since he added me last night, I agree with this. :D

Not sure if one of you did this, but there is a "bench Matt Cassel" page on FB. Like it. Sorry if repost but im not reading through 63 pages. There is also an article on there that mentions your little crusade. Kudos to you, youre my hero. PS, myself and both my roommates are going to try to send money. Joe is signing up on the planet as we speak.

If the national media picks up and gives the slightest mention of the banner.. then it is DONE.. no need to fly it again, it would have substantially diminished returns. If there is NO national coverage at all (seems highly unlikely) then I would say it may be worth flying it again.

If we do get national coverage (even a little) then I think you go with a billboard if it is economically feasible. If not, then I suggest looking into expanding the online reach and other grassroots efforts like a concessions boycott or whatnot.

Bingo

Before someone gets all gung ho on the billboard idea, you better check all the laws Missouri has in place for them. I can tell you from recent experience, it could be a colossal waste of time and effort if you don't familiarize yourself with the regs.

I am going to disagree with you. If you stop flying the banner after getting some media attention than it looks like that is all we were after. You keep flying the banner until actual changes are made (providing funds keep coming in). Continuing the flights shows it is not just a moment of venting frustration but, that we are serious about this. Especially as a grass roots average fan donating to the cause week in and week out.

Pursue other avenues but, do not abandon the flights.

If we keep putting pressure on him maybe he'll crack Howard Hughs style.

The way things are going there may be enough collective money to buy out the contracts of both Cassel and Pioli and send them both out of Arrowhead for good.
