Naimoli would have to step down on his own, and there are those who feel that is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
But who knows? Perhaps enough signatures on a Web site will convince him to walk away, to go to a place where no one will use his bathroom ever again.
Vince and the Tampa community: I can't think of an owner more hated by the community since George Shinn and the Charlotte Hornets. In that situation, the league let George take his team elsewhere and a new local team emerged thru expansion.
Vince the business person: He has from day one not marketed the team like a true business person would do with a new business. His focus has been more about making money on his investment rather than building a winning organization. He has alienated the customer by saying until you show faith in me by buying my product, I will not show faith in you be spending the money to be competitive. He is completely happy being the new Expos.
Vince effect on the guys in the uniform: How would you like to work for a company who has very few customers that you put your heart and soul in to become the best employee you can be. After a while it gets to a point where playing at home is not something you look forward to like it should be. Just ask the Nationals what a difference it is having a fan base finally. Its kind of sad when your minor league affiliates have better crowds than the big club.
