Sad for the sport that absolutely no one cares. There is no players manager on site. You show up for work and your boss is 130 miles away. The players themselves run the entire operation. If you don't play, you announce. If you don't play, you work the concession stand. If you don't play, there's a light bulb that needs to be changed...somewhere.
Thanks Joe for the bird's eye view. Yeah, I think it's what everyone anticipated. DPOE summed it up nicely.
Ugh, not much better than OLE. Cmon Fort!
