    Default Control Freak Coonelly & Nutting at it again

    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/10170/1066854-63.stm



    Thursday, at 4:30 p.m., he posted a message aimed at team president Frank Coonelly, general manager Neal Huntington and manager John Russell. It read: "Coonelly extended the contracts of Russell and Huntington through the 2011 season. That means a 19-straight losing streak. Way to go Pirates."

    Within four hours, he received a call from Dan Millar, the Pirates' mascot coordinator.

    Whatever.

    Kurtz knowingly, repeatedly did something wrong and then claims to be the victim.

    I would never disparage the CEO or management of the company that I work for. If I was the owner or or CEO of a company and and employee publicly disparaged it I would have no problem disciplining/firing him.

    Boo-hoo. Poor mistreated victim...

    "Pirates spokesman Brian Warecki on Friday night said, "While we cannot discuss the specifics of the dismissal, we can say that a part-time employee serving a suspension for a previous violation of company policy was terminated for committing yet another violation of company policy."

    It is kind of ironic that the pierogies are held to a higher level of accountability than the rest of the organization....

    Who else in the organization disparaged their boss on the Internet? I don't think it was smart to fire him either for this, but it's obviously not smart to knock your workplace online.

    Hey! Let's make a big deal out of this everyone! The Pirates fired a racing Pierogi for writing disparaging things about the team on his Facebook page! Is this Pittsburgh or Nazi Germany amirite?
    Yeah, I'm sorry, this is not a big deal nor should it be surprising to anyone. Freedom of speech means the government can't go around impinging on what people have the right to say, but that doesn't apply to private companies. There are plenty of companies in this country that would fire someone for the comments this kid made on his Facebook page (which basically said that the Pirates were screwed for the forseeable future by extending Huntington and Russell). Hell, the Eagles fired an employee within the last two years for ripping the team on his Facebook page when they released Brian Dawkins. This is not a story or an embarrassment or a sign that the club hates its fans; this is what happens when people don't think before using the internet."

    If you were a boss and one of your employees put disparaging remarks about you on a public forum for all to see, would you discipline that employee? If you say no, you're lying! Freedom of speech doesn't apply here. If I had an employee that chose to go this route and was a repeat offender, I'd get rid of him too. There are plenty of other people out there willing to do his job that won't be the headache he was.

    Call me a kool aid drinker if you like, that's your perogative. But at the same time, the dark siders on the other side of the fence use **** like this to advance their cause. This is a Pirate board, so you are probably wasting your time here. Dejan's comment section seems to be where the dark siders converge. But you have to pay for that coverage.

    Didn't the Eagles fire a stadium employee for questioning letting Brian Dawkins go? If you work for a team you should probably try not to write anything under your own name.
