Andrew Ladd simulating what the ASG, LLC are doing to the fans of this franchise. Oddly enough, Eric Staal plays the part of the fans. Awk-ward.

I don't know if this is John Kincade's idea of "good ownership news" or not, but in an interview with the AJC, Gearon basically tells Chris Vivlamore that the team'll be sold to someone who has interest in moving the franchise if a local buyer can't be found.

Great timing, Gearon. Make us all happy with signing Buff, and then kick us in the nards (or other parts for those of us sans-nards) while we're jumping for joy.

I poured my vitrol into a write-up for SB Nation Atlanta that you're more than welcome to read. Most of it is directed at the incompetency of marketing and the gall of them to try to place blame on the fans for not spending money on something that's poorly marketed, but I really think the crowning jewel in ASG's bumbling-ness is the fact that they released this interview in the middle of season ticket renewals.

Over/under on no town hall meeting coming up any time soon?
