To Mets Management:
I am a lifelong Mets fan. I have been to many games over my 49 years. Now that I have children, I have brought them to many Mets games.
We have a family business in New Jersey and have been season ticket holders for the last two years. As budget’s tighten businesses need to make wise decisions on how to spend their money. We will be deciding soon, whether to continue to spend our limited resources on continuing to purchase season tickets.
On HBO’s Real Time on Friday, Bill Maher made some disgusting comments that mocked America’s World War II veterans:
“The other thing that apparently was so important for the Republicans to keep open was the World War II Memorial in Washington. That was closed, so a bunch of the World War II vets knocked down the barriers and stormed it.”
“And then I loved this, they posed for pictures with Michele Bachmann who showed up. Michele Bachmann, one of the people most responsible for shutting the f–king thing down. They’re the greatest generation – nobody said they were the brightest generation.”
Bill Maher has made other disgusting comments before, but what he said Friday make it hard for me to ignore that he is a part owner of my beloved New York Mets.
I am outraged, and this latest rant from Mr. Maher will weigh heavily on our decision to purchase season tickets another year.
When I tell my partners of these disgusting comments – I believe they will be as outraged as I am. I hope that the Mets organization will ask Mr. Maher to divest himself of his shares of the team.
I have had many fond memories at Shea Stadium and now Citi Field of my Mets. Your decision will weigh heavily on ours, as to whether we will continue to spend our money on the NY Mets.
I will be posting Mr. Maher’s comments and my letter to you on every social forum I can.
A Regretful Met fan,
