Bumped. Here is something simple you can do to make yourself feel better and also make tiny bit of a difference. These emails matter. However, it is important to make sure while you express your views with passion you remain polite and respectful. For a great example please click here. And if you are so kind please share what you wrote by posting it in the comment section. We are all in this together. GO BRUINS. -N
I am not going to recap yesterday's nightmare. I would only be preaching to the choir. If you do not believe Dorrell should be fired (not just for this disaster, but for his long, completely undistinguished career), probably nothing will ever change your mind. For those of you in your right mind, UCLA needs to rebuild as soon as possible. The longer we wait to fire Dorrell, the longer it will take us to have a respectable program again.
On a positive note, it is thrilling to see so many new posters on BN. Obviously, a lot of people have been reading the site and yesterday's humiliation spurred you to vent. Good for you. Keep it coming.
You want change? Posting on BN is great but it is unlikely Dan Guerrero will be doing anything based on what you or I write.
It is time to take action. Very simply, the only thing to which people respond is money.
For the price of a first class stamp, you can have an effect on the program. Write a letter to Guerrero TODAY and tell him that you will not buy another ticket to any game EVER or buy any more UCLA gear EVER until Dorrell is fired (by the way, it is ok to keep buying gear--the $ goes to students). Or email him with the same message.
Mr. Daniel G. Guerrero, Director of Athletics
UCLA Intcol Ath
BOX 951639, Morgan Cntr
Los Angeles, CA 90095-1639
While you are at it, drop a line to the new Chancellor:
Chancellor Gene Block
Murphy Hall 2147
Los Angeles, CA 90095-1405
Hit them where it hurts. It would take 5 minutes to scratch out a letter or send an email with the above message. Make sure you mention that you will not be spending any more MONEY on the program until Dorrell is gone.
If you truly, honestly care, you will do this.
