    MLB caught Cano. Why can't it catch Nelson Cruz

    yeah its obvious, wonder how hes doing it
  2. Its a good question and led me to check my bias since I was against the TLR hire when it happened. I still say yes, because its 2 DUI's and I didn't get angry until I imagined a friend or relative of mine being killed by a drunk driver. I was originally laughing at the news but I know theres people out there that this affects personally. I feel for them.
  3. Which is why we cant just sit back anymore. This is a slap in the face to us fans and those who had to deal with drunk driving.
  4. Here is a generic template, i am not a good writer so please edit as needed: Hello, Thirty people a day in the United States die every year to drunk driving with another eight hundred being hurt. You are a sponsor for the Chicago White Sox with your logo and company seen to all who tune in. The White Sox have recently hired a manager a day after he was pulled over for a DUI. According to the team's spokesman they were aware of the arrest when they made the hire. This will be Tony Larussa's second DUI. As an important sponsor for the Chicago White Sox I have to ask for your stance on this, if character is important to your company, and if you will continue to support the Chicago White Sox as long as they continue to employ this manager. I highly value character, I am waiting to see if your company does. Please reach out to the Chicago White Sox to limit your partnership or terminate it as long as they employ Tony Larussa. There are many like me who are waiting to see how this will be handled. Do not besmudge your name, it will be noticed. Thank you for your time
  5. Just to show how you can alter Balta's Goose Island message for any company, here is one for Statefarm: Hello I have Statefarm for both my mortgage and car insurance. For years you have given me comfort knowing the roof over my head is taken care of. I am also an advocate for safe and responsible driving. I know Statefarm also highly values the importance of responsible driving. Your company is a sponsor of the White Sox, with logos throughout their ballpark during the last season. That's why I'm writing this email today, because it's a disappointing day for White Sox fans as the team just hired a manager, Tony LaRussa, who we just learned now has 2 arrests for DUI on his record after an incident earlier this year. According to press reports, he was just charged in late October, the day before the team hired him, and now the team won't even comment on his arrest. Furthermore, on the evening of his arrest, he was belligerent with a police officer, stating "Do you know who I am, I'm a legit Hall of Fame guy" according to press reports. Statefarm has been my go to insurance company because of the stance you take on drinking and driving. Yet, a team you sponsor doesn't seem to think that safety while drinking is something they need to be concerned with. There are countless articles and tips on your website concerning drinking and driving. For instance 30 people a day die from drinking and driving, that is from your site. I ask you then why would you be a sponsor of a team that does not agree with your stance? I'd hope that Statefarm will consider taking up this issue with the White Sox, and if necessary, limiting or ending their sponsorship of that team. If this person continues being their coach and Statefarm continues as their sponsor next season, I will have to conclude that Statefarm finds that behavior acceptable, and unfortunately I will be remembering that any time I think about purchasing your products, or when I renew for my mortgage and car insurance. Thank you very much for your time and consideration

  7. Thanks, we need a big voice to get this out. Hopefully a big account get ahold of it
  8. For anyone thinking of contacting sponsors this is the way to do it. Take note, adjust this post to fit your style, and send. SEND SEND SEND! With enough of these the Sox will feel pressure. They will feel much more pressure than anything coming from Bruce Boyer (do that too).
  9. Here is a post to Reddit, if you have a reddit account upvote the thread for better visibility. If you have a Twitter make sure to alert other sox fans that this is a way to voice displeasure with how this organization is going. Nobody seems to think about sponsors and how critical they can be for the bottom line. https://www.reddit.com/r/whitesox/comments/jru616/have_your_voice_heard/
  10. This deserves its own thread, I can make a thread over on reddit if you dont mind.
  11. Advertisers and sponsors: Wintrust - https://www.wintrust.com/contact-us.html Guaranteed Rate - customercare@rate.com United - https://twitter.com/united (cant find an email for this type of complaint, but they do have an active twitter) Goose Island - @gooseisland (they stress to drink responsibly, how ironic of the situation) Modelo - @ModeloUSA It is difficult to find sponsors for whatever reason but I am sure there are a lot more
  12. I am collecting a list of sponsers and contact information and will post them later in the day. A template would probably be nice for people to follow as well
  13. Honestly what else can he say? The big IQ play here is to go after sponsers. I would hope the ownership group would look at this differently if sponsers come to them with concerns over thousands of complaints.
  14. Is there a compiled list of white sox sponsers? Id like to contact some saying how disappointed i am in them for supporting this shitty organization who believes drinking and driving racists pricks are ok.
  15. This is the only way. Edit: if thousands of Sox fans came together and put pressure on Sox advertisers that would certainly help.
  16. Is there not a board that can force jerry to sell the team?
  17. Im really disgusted with reinsdorf, hes a piece of shit
  18. Luckily i am not affected in any way by drunk drivers, but i can imagine the rage i would feel right now towards this org if someone i loved died because of one. Truly a disgusting act by both uncle jerry and larussa.
  19. If teams travel next year he wont be able to fly to Toronto.
