Let's take advantage of this opportunity to voice our opinions.


Sometimes I think the entire Red Bull existence has been some 19 year old kids football manager save file he only plays when he comes home drunk. - 'Mibabalou'

How do you edit a topic title on here, I realized I spelled Marsch wrong.

I think Red Bull is realizing that they've just lost a large chunk of their fanbase.

Give them credit for setting this up.  It could get ugly, though.

Even if I was one of the 300 people chosen, I wouldn't be able to go.  But, I am hoping that we get some good smartphone footage uploaded here.  Would LOVE to see how they respond to what are certain to be very, very tough questions from very hurt and angry fans.

If only we can get Petke involved somehow.....

 

I want a copy of Ali's 300 page plan.

PLEASE THINK CRITICALLY:

 

They're not going to waltz in there and speak off-the-cuff. You can be damn sure their message is going to be carefully premeditated and crafted by a team of PR executives. Do NOT let yourself get trapped with their gaslighting and spinning of the situation. Don't drink the Red Bull-infused koolaid they're going to try to sell you.

 

At the same time, do NOT come off as some drunk idiot ranting. Be very clear in your message, and be very critical and unforgiving. But save the, "fuck you Curtis you fucker" and such to the message boards. Nobody's going to take you seriously if you sound like a rambling child throwing a tantrum. Make it clear that what they did is utterly embarrassing and irreparably unforgiving. But say so in a way that they have no choice but to take the message seriously.

I'm going to try to go, but I doubt I'll be able to. I'll throw my name in the hat and see what happens. 

 

If you get selected: BOO, HISS, YELL, CHANT, DON'T LET THEM GET A WORD EDGE WISE. Sing songs about Petke. Fuck Curtis. Fuck DeGranpre. Fuck Marsch. They know they've fucked up. Don't hold back now. 

 

Oh, and also record it and upload to YouTube.

This 100%.  Save the f bombing and sandbagging for the boards...you want to give them a piece of your mind do it respectfully and professionally.  The only way to get any headway with these guys and make them more likely to meet you halfway is to act with dignity.  They need to be more transparent with what this so called vision is...what the milestones and timing are, etc.  The tailgate party ranting should stay in the parking lot.
