2011 Was a Rocky Year for the Rockies – What Next?

After the second disappointing year in a row, what can loyal fans of the Rockies expect in the future? More of the same, because the Monfort brothers are uneilling and incapable of doing any better.

Some of it was not actually the Monforts, but they benefitted from the illegal activities and financial philanderings of the original owners, led by Mickey “Mouse” Monus. In order to keep the franchise in Colorado somebody who’s reputation was at least not totally sullied had to step forware. Thus the Monforts and Jerry Mc were recruited and practically given the team because they weren’t convicted criminals and appeared to have a lot of money. Jerry later had his own financial problems and was rousted by the Monforts who took total control over the team – the rest is history. Continue reading
