    And I can barely watch these games. The coaching is absolutely horrible, the players are abysmal, but what bothers me most is that ownership doesn't care. Sad because we were one of the best franchises in the league. All it took was a spoiled rich kid to get control for it all to fall apart.

    Dude, it's Jazz road games. You will be high as **** on optimism once they play at home.

    I agree 100% with you... My Dad worked at the Delta Center in upper management and left right before Larry passed away. He said that as Greg took ownership the work enviornment was different. I"m sure that translated to the Jazz organazation as well.

    Ignore these young punks, GoJazz. I know what you mean.

    It's awesome to follow your team through tough times, shows fandom. Even better in great times (reap the rewards), but show some nuts you ****faces and demand something from the team you've given everything to! It's NOT okay. M I rite????

    I gotta defend Greggy, maybe he's not a great person (or maybe he is... I have absolute no idea) but what has he done besides encouraging frequent trading that us fans demanded, pay the luxury tax, and try his best to put on a competitive team? He's not the coach, player or even the GM ffs. This seems like a ridiculous assertion. So you don't like the guy... can't say he doesn't care

    Ownership doesn't care? Now what are the chances of that actually being true?

    It seems silly to say that ownership doesn't care. If they didn't care they'd sell the team and stop trying to keep a small market team afloat.

    Ownership won't let Ty off the hook if he underperforms. That's all I care about.

    I will bring comfort to an uneasy situation. I started an NBA 2K13 Association with the Utah Jazz and, as general manager, I made some moves:

    - Traded Al Jefferson + Raja Bell for James Harden :D :D :D
    - Fired Tyrone Corbin and signed a new head coach: James Nash (A+ Offense, A+ Defense, A+ Potential)

    Also, Burks gets 22 MPG.

    This just in: Mo Williams, as a result of Al Jefferson getting traded, has requested a trade and refuses to play for the Utah Jazz.

    Chain reaction. Just out of curiosity can stuff like that happen in 2K13? I haven't played any basketball video games in years.

    This is one of those universal truths. Unfortunately it all hinges on a game of symantics and how they define underperformance.

    Sort of, yeah. They have ratings for things similar to that. If they have a high rating in 'Play For Winner' their chemistry will drop big time if they're playing for a crappy team.

    Fair. But ownership brought in a whole new raft of players. Ownership has a lot of young draft picks. Ownership is not going to sit idly by while players don't get assimilated or developed. While this is a universal truth, another universal truth is ownership rarely lets employees stink up their company. Jazz loyalty to Sloan was unique. Ty won't be afforded the same latitude if he can't get this straightened out.
