    It's obvious now that Tillman can't run a team or even hire people competent at running it. In a short few years, he's literally run off all the desirable talent at every level - players, coaching, and front office.

    We can all bitch about this on here, but I'm thinking it's time for a 21st century "Save Our Rockets" campaign, with the focus being getting this penny-wit clown to sell the team. So I thought I'd start a thread where we share ideas for how he could be pressured to sell:

    1) Billboards - Put up some billboards that demand he sell the team
    2) Cancel NBA pass and let them know why (probably only works for those out of town)
    3) Don't buy Rockets merch
    4) Find sympathetic government officials to diss him publicly
    5) Find restaurant and casino competitors who will publicly make fun of him for being such a shitty owner
    6) Social media campaigns

    I honestly don't know anything about how to start a full blown campaign so these ideas probably are ****. But I'd certainly contribute some dollars to good ideas.

    Houston is full of casual fans that dgaf about Tilman

    The Rockets suck? No problem, they’ve already switched to being Lakers fans and will check in on the Rockets whenever they get back to being relevant, or never if that takes too many years.

    The chronic helps numb oneself to Houston sports.

    I think owner wanted financial relief from Covid and is completely tearing down the franchise.

    I've just been becoming a fan of other teams as the Rockets slid down the organizational rankings from Les to Tilman.

    Suns, Nuggets, and Philly are interesting teams to follow.

    The titanic has sunk. This ship ran an iceberg the day Tillman bought the franchise

    I might cancel mine, but for some reason they haven't asked me for money this year.

    The Rockets Nation sits on scorched Earth! Probably penalty for hurting the NBA bottom dollar in the China market.

    At this rate we're going to end up giving OKC pick #5 and they somehow get Mobley with it and he will be the next best player in the league in 5 years

    This is how doomed everything feels right now.

    I felt like I could bare this season as long as we were building towards something. But then the owner and front office stole that from me too.

    most these mindless casuals probably dont even know who tilman is. All they know is big name star players and football. Thats why they blame harden, cp3, russ or whoever for all of our problems when this cheap baboon has been the root cause of everything

    Tilman better get used to the Pandemic crowd. This trash organization does not deserve fans or their money. Hit them where it hurts.

    I'm putting my money on black at the roulette table at Golden Nugget to support this team.

    He needs to let his son manage the team. He seems like he has potential from my understanding anyways.

    it’s really only a small section of fans that go in on Tilman...the rest don’t care, are clueless, or aren’t invested enough

    I know many casual Rockets fans...they don’t even know what luxury tax is, so they damn sure aren’t getting on Tilman for avoiding it while trying to contend

    many of them liked acquiring Westbrook because he’s an MVP and gets triple doubles, so they’re not attacking Tilman for forcing that trade if they even know that he forced it
