As the years of football pass, old fans become older fans, and new fans are born and nurtured into the sportsdom world. Being a fan is so much more than just watching a game, it is an identity, a way of life even. Some peoples’ weeks ride on a win or loss of their own beloved team. Recently this season, angry fans in Buffalo, angered over several losing seasons, paid for a billboard calling for change, and they got it. Now it has been reported that upwards of 21,000 fans came together in petitioning Al Davis to hire a GM, and paid for a billboard to go up, as well. Link
As a Bears fan, I find it unbearable, to watch our team flounder year in and year out, as we are the flagship of the NFL, the old tried and true, black and blue Chicago Bears. Yet we sit idly by almost every January and watch the Patriots, Steelers, and Colts vie for a championship. I wonder if our very own billboard would make a difference. For me, spending all this money on NFL gamepasses, jerseys, autographed memorabilia, and everything else Chicago Bears, pales in comparison to a truly worthy purchase: a voice. We truly can be the fourth phase, and have an impact on this team, for change, to let the Chicago Bears organization know, we demand more, and more importantly, we deserve more.
I don't know how to go about finding an advertising company, but if somebody could, I personally would be willing to put up some dough for a post up, would anyone else, for a change?
