Dick Monfort got himself in a little hot water this week by lashing out at a fan from Grand junction via email. Another fan, however, wrote Dick a lengthy letter to which he responded. That fan, Christine Voss (@hurryhurryomaha) on Twitter, recieved a reply from Dick - and a request to meet him for coffee. Christine will be sitting down with the Rockies owner tomorrow. She has kindly allowed us to reproduce her letter here at South Stands Denver. It's after the jump.

"Their loyalty, however, is misplaced. Rather than offering it to the people who pay the bills they give it to Dan O’Dowd. The reason for this is no mystery. O’Dowd shares the Monforts’ faith."

"The Rockies are, after all, a team bejeweled with All-Star talent, one that absolutely drips with potential. But that potential is never realized. Monfort seems to be awakening to the fact that it's inexcusable."

Douggie McNugget we hardly knew thee

Douggie McNugget we hardly knew thee

Bill Simmons said that it made no sense for the Nuggets to draft you, Douggie, but we were excited anyway. Heck, my buddy Renaud, who prides himself on his ability to keep a certain distance from his fandom actually leaped up from his chair when it was announced that the Nuggets had selected you. You may have been another Danilo Gallinari and the blue and yellow may not necessarily have needed you but boy would you have looked good in a Denver uniform.

Your disarming smile as you donned your crisp new hat and shook Adam Silver’s hand had us all filled with hope for the future. You were Denver’s great white hope.

Mile High Sports President James Merilatt Tweeted this when they called your name:

rsz james

For Creighton you lead the nation in scoring last year. You were a consensus All-American for the past three years and you played for your Dad which means you’re probably coach-able. Brian Shaw would have loved you. The experience you gained competing in the FIBA under-19 championships probably helped make you NBA ready for the coming season.

But the Nuggets traded your rights to the Bulls for the 16th and 19th pick. We had you for just a fleeting moment. Now we have a 7 footer from Bosnia. Again.

Douggie McNugget we hardly knew thee.

The de-Masaiing of the Nuggets has begun

When Masai Ujiri remained the GM of your Denver Nuggets he was held in very high regard as one of the NBA's finest wheeler-dealers. In his absence, though, some of his roster moves have proven to be perplexing. The most maddening of these was the trade that sent shooting guard Arron Afflalo, a Denver favorite, to the Orlando Magic along with Al Harrington as part of a four-team deal that netted the Nuggets Andre Igoudala from the 76ers.

Iguodala had only one year left on his contract. He waved goodbye to Denver the first chance he got and joined up with Golden State.

Today, with the NBA draft upcoming, we learned that the Nuggets swapped Evan Fournier and their 56th pick to Orlando to get Afflalo back in the fold here. The trade was inarguably very favorable for Denver. NBA scribe Bill Simmons Tweeted that Denver paid $.30 on the dollar in the deal and that it made no sense. Regardless, the swap is clearly part of the de-Masaiing of the Denver at the hands of new GM Tim Connelly.

Arron Afflalo would seem to be precisely the type of character player that Brian Shaw covets. He's not likely to leave candy bar wrappers on the team plane.
