WHAT IF THEY STAGED A BOYCOTT AND NOBODY CAME?

There was some chat on Twitter tonight about fan disgust regarding team performance, and what would happen if everyone who had tickets stayed away from Citi Field on a particular date, in order to send a message.

My take: no one will do it. Six bloggers will write about it and there will be a litany of excuses about money spent and promises made and that it won’t help and the Wilpons already have our money and they don’t care (with a derail to blame Carlos Beltran, because what would a litany of complaints about the Mets be these days without blaming Carlos Beltran somehow)?

Would people do it?

The idea floated was to show up at Citi Field – don’t pay for parking, take the train or hike in from street parking – and sit outside in protest. August 25 was the date thrown out.

I love protest and civil disobedience like no one’s business but I don’t see the greater Mets fan community getting behind this. These are people who defended the Mets throwing out the guys with the K cards last year on the grounds that “duct tape could damage the signs!” (the same signs that are built to sit outside 365 days a year in all weather conditions). People will protest that we’re getting in the way of their good time.

I am happy to pound the virtual pavement in favor of this if anyone, at all, thinks it has legs. I just don’t think that it does. I wish it did.

Join The Citi Field Sit Out on August 25!
