Royals Fans Urge Owner David Glass To Sell Team In Full Page Ad

It's been a long time since the Kansas City Royals have been a good team, and owner David Glass has taken a lot of the flak for allowing the team to have four 100 -oss seasons in his tenure with the team since he bought it in 2000. Royals fans have started to fight back, with website buying a full page advertisement in the Kansas City Star using money from fan donations.

The letter, which can be read in its entirety here, is fairly scathing of Glass' stewardship of the team and the lack of results that have come out of it.

This is an organization that has gone from playing for Division Championships, Pennants and World Championships almost every year for the better part of a 10 to 12 year span, to a team on a proverbial "youth movement" for the better part of 15 years. As this continues, an entire generation of children will not even be able to say that the Royals were once good "back when I was a child," which is the only thing I can say at this point in time. An entire generation has been lost during your tenure. Mr. Glass, with all due respect, you have permeated a culture of losing in the Kansas City Royals organization and it cannot be overcome without new ownership.

Kansas City is currently 56-70 in the 2012 season, another frustrating year that will result in yet another year missing the playoffs for the Royals.
