Hard to be a fan of a team that is so poorly managed.

I'm writing this to see if anyone else feels the same way that I do. I love the Blazers, always have. But I have recently been so discouraged by how the team has handled the media, criticism, the players, and the injuries. I know that all of the injuries that have happened to our players in recent years were (probably) not the medical staff's fault. BUT It honestly doesn't matter. In business, when things get out of hand something HAS to change. The team is so defensive of the medical staff that they seem blind to the fact that they need to clean house. If anything, the Blazer's medical staff sticking around is going to possibly repel prospective free agents from coming to Portland.

In Larry Miller's recent interview with 750 the game, he came across as a moron, with less knowledge of the draft process than most fans. This isn't only humiliating, it makes cheering for this guys team more difficult.

Paul Allen is a terrible manager, this is not news to anyone. But the fact that he is going through GM's like laundry also makes him as an owner difficult to cheer for. When he fired KP i though that he may have something smart up his sleeve that we would see manifest itself in the next year or so. Welp, I was wrong.

Also, in the recent Greg Oden article on Grantland, the Blazers were made out to be a pretty classless organization. While the article was very biased and one-sided, a lot of what was said about the Blazers had crossed my mind prior to reading the article. I couldn't help but think finally, someone wrote this article.

What I am getting at is when you cheer for a team you cheer for an entire organization. You are rooting for everyone including the GM, the owner, the president, the towel boys, and of course, the players. But right now there are a lot of people in this organization that are simply difficult to cheer for. I find myself rooting for teams like San Antonio and Oklahoma City, because they are great organizations--top to bottom.
