Wow!!!!


What great timing.  They're sending out year-end 49er Club emails asking for contributions (got mine today).


I would LOVE them to get a truckload of replies to this email stating "You will get nothing more from me...not until Phil & Judy are gone."


They're getting at least one of those from me!
Niner Nation wanted football...we got football
Niner Nation wanted Judy gone....Judy's gone
Niner Nation wanted the Tarhole sign gone from I85...the sign in gone

Name Change.......YOU'RE NEXT!!!!

This.  You can donate to the Grand Slam Club and all the money goes solely to baseball, and there is nothing Judy can do about it. 

Judy is NOT our biggest baseball fan.

I responded with a simple "Thanks for the email but no more donations will be made until there is serious change within the AD. I no longer want to throw away money."

Here's my reply


I have already notified the Chancellor but I will no longer purchase any tickets nor donate any money until there is leadership change or significant public declaration of a new direction of commitment to Charlotte athletics. 

The current Chancellor and AD do not share my values of a commitment to excellence in athletics as a way to promote school pride and brand identity.  I have long “invested” my hard earned money back to my alma mater’s athletic foundation entrusting that my money would be used to further drive similar values.  Since it becomes more and more apparent with each year’s continually TOLERATED poor performance on the field and reinforced with each public interview that the Chancellor or the AD gives to various media outlets…that my money is DEFINITELY not being used to support ideals or values anywhere near my beliefs….I can no longer contribute until new leadership or a new public plan for a significant change of direction are announced.


Thank you.

Feel free to attach my email to Phil to your replies. Can't speak for donkeyjaws but I bet he'd give permission for his to be used too, if you prefer a shorter one. His is great.

Keep piling on.

I think I'm going to sarcastically donate $15 ...$1 for each year since Phil has been here to represent how much each year has been worth under his leadership.

You're right....I was thinking the 5 in 2005...getting old.


New math: 1.11 + .27 + .12 = a cool $1.50 donation this year

I received an email a couple days ago from the 49er Club asking me to rejoin.  I thought about it for a couple of seconds, and just hit delete.  Felt bad for a couple of seconds because I love this school, but I got over it pretty quick.  I'll just donate to Belk College of Business and carry on.

I thought about responding with a simple "Nope."

Instead, the e-mail just happened to catch me in the right mood, and the reply turned into multiple paragraphs of unloading from a very personal standpoint.  Phil, Hummer, and the Board of Trustees were CC'd.  Whether they read it or not, I can't say I didn't give them a chance to do so.

The tone-deafness of sending out letters asking for money in the middle of #FJR is so rich.

Seems appropriate to send an end of year reminder email towards the end of the year...

Yep, they do this every year.  i'm guessing they are getting many more responses this time though!!


I'm sure they were dreading hitting send on that e-mail.

I like the guys in the club office, I truly do.  But they had to double face palm at their desks when Dubois took to the airwaves

Would give anything to be a fly on the wall. 

Would also give anything to hear the thoughts on someone who used to work there.  They are all being awesome about this.  I know this has been a tough week for some of those guys.
