The Milwaukee Brewers have had an unfortunate month. Not only has the club fallen to 18 games below .500, but they’ve had to deal with the fallout stemming from the suspension of the face of their franchise, Ryan Braun. The Brewers will hand out $10 vouchers to all fans during the 12 home dates in August. On Monday, the Brewers’ head honcho, chairman and principal owner Mark Attanasio, announced that any  fan that passes through the Miller Park gates will receive a $10 voucher to use on nearly anything in the park. According to the press release, the only places in the park where the vouchers will not be accepted are at the corporate-backed venues such as Friday’s Front Row, the Johnson Controls Stadium Club, the Miller Park Suites, as well as all-inclusive entertainment areas and portable merchandise stands. It is a gesture of goodwill that will mount financially for the small-market club, which falls under the umbrella of a larger “Fans First” campaign. The Brewers have 12 home dates in the month of August and that same press release expects 30,000 per game in August, Milwaukee will dole out upwards of $3.5 million worth of free vouchers. “This has been a challenging season for all of us, but the one thing that has never wavered has been the tremendous support we have received from fans who love the Brewers,” Attanasio said through the release. “We wanted to do something meaningful to show our appreciation, and we will strive to provide the best fan experience possible.” The 65-game suspension handed down to Braun comes without pay, meaning the Brewers will save approximately $3.4 million over the course of the 2013. It appears that that Attanasio and the Milwaukee club had that figure in mind when developing a way to give back to the fan base, and found a way to do so in an unprecedented manner. The Brewers needed to act quickly to try to help repair the additional damages that the suspension had on the reputation of the clu, and handing out a $10 voucher to each fan is certainly a meaningful gesture. Fans will be able to read through the lines and know why they are receiving the vouchers, but they will likely go a long way to help keeping fans in the stands for the remainder of the season.

It’s time for Jimmy Garoppolo to step up and do his job

Do your job. That’s been the mantra of Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots for a long time. Well, it just so happens that there’s a job opening for the New England Patriots, albeit a temporary one. It’s arguably the most important job on the team, starting quarterback. That’s right folks, the Jimmy Garoppolo era has begun. We all knew this was coming, just not this...

Phil Jackson is the architect of a Finals contender

When pundits view Phil Jackson’s first year since taking over the New York Knicks they see failure, but they’re not looking in the right direction. If not for Jackson, the Cleveland Cavaliers would likely be sitting at home right now hoping the second year of the latest LeBron James era worked out better than the first. You could say Jackson is directly responsible for the...

Marcus Mariota 'eating up' Tennessee Titans offense

The biggest question surrounding Marcus Mariota during the lead-up to the 2015 NFL draft was if the former Oregon star would be able to learn a different style of offense. Per ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky, Tennessee Titans quarterbacks coach John McNulty said the team hasn’t been forced to slow down in the implementation of the attack, because Mariota has handled it all. “The...
