The ax should fall and right on top of the assistant general manager of promotions. Hated by interns and spirit squads who have worked with her over 3 different owners.
Still last in attendance with 1/3 of the season done 25,000 fans. At this rate Slammers will draw 75,000. Yes we had to work with her and she is/was the problem.

The Slammers front office is a great bunch of people. They would have not kept "her" if she didnt fit in with the group. Let it go and move on with your life.

They use the same routines for the last 10 years...they need someone that thinks out of the box to try new things...not the same old stunts and gags that every minor league team has been using in the last 10 years...its getting old. People come to see whats going on...not the game. I would love to see this team succeed but the direction they are going...it don't look good. Get a NEW director of marketing...not a kid just out of school that knows the theories of marketing. You get what you pay for.

The have one of the best parks...if the THE BEST in minor leagues. The parking is not a problem at all. Joliet has such a negative perception on people....even people who live there are afraid of the downtown area...especially at night. The Slammers need a new (if they even have one) marketing plan...to build around the positives they have. This might take a few years of Marketing...Marketing...Market ing but if they can establish their brand they will be successful...MUST be DIFFERENT and CREATIVE especially for a city that is perceived to be a white trash hillbilly MECCA. Nascar and gambling has only added to the perception of Joliet....its much more than that.

Conceal carry is coming. Those folks will buy season tickets just for the chance to light some junkie up.

No one goes to Joliet on purpose. I work down there and it smells like the toilet it is.
