Pens and IOC are making a HUGE mistake
according to PG
"Neither the Penguins nor Isle of Capri plan any advertising at this time."
Massive mistake. I don't understand their lack of willingness to do battle publicly. They can post all the glitzy videos on the Pens website and board that they want, but nobody will see them except those of us who are already convinced.
Although, the conspirator in me wonders if there's a deal cut behind the scenes, hence their lack of initiative.
That or the Penguins have all but conceded that their chances of obtaining an arena via the IoC plan are nil, and that contributing any money towards advertising is a fundamental waste of time and resources...
Polling? Polling? At this juncture of the campaign? For what?
And hey, were we not "promised" a massive PR campaign last fall by the Penguins and IoC? If not now, when?
All this simply suggests that FCE/Harrah's is running laps around the Penguins/IoC in the PR department and that we Pens fans had best hope that any "Plan B" is palatable to both the Penguins and the voting public (And I am unconvinced that any "Plan B" will actually be crafted before the November elections. Will that be to late to save the Penguins in Pittsburgh?)
