Yesterday I received a Direct Message on twitter from the Queensland Red’s twitter account that read as follows:
“Hi Steven, we’re concerned that you’re feeling disengaged as a fan and we’d like to know how we can improve the situation?
My reply (along with the original DM) is set out in the two photos below:
- Go to Reds games.
- Celebrate Reds victories.
- Commiserate Reds losses.
- Where appropriate, criticise all that I believe to be wrong with the team.
A final point: if sending me the message above was a strategy to engage me by the Queensland Reds it represents a spectatular failure because as I post this blog, some 24 hours after my reply to the Red’s message I still do not have a reply. Spelling my name wrong was bad enough but attempting to engage me without actually engaging is just another brick in the wall of my disengagement.
