Joe Goodman takes the same crappy attitude with every article he writes regardless of what his subject matter is. Probably mad that he has gone from writing for the Miami Herald to AL dot com.

RE: Fail for Birmingham or UAB?
There were 3 ticket specials this week for C-USA sponsored by UAB sports marketing department. 1. Wednesday was employee appreciation day and could purchase tickets for $12 with UAB ID. 2. Thursday is youth day and kids 17 and under can buy $12 ticket. 3. Friday is military appreciation day and can get discount ticket. But has anyone heard about any of these promotions? The ticket office said everyone is at BJCC. The sports marketing department won't answer phone either. They are much too busy at free buffet at Westin. I'm at the games. Every UAB employee I've spoken to said they knew nothing about promotions either. They are using Twitter apparently as only source.

Marketing is not marketing without a marketing budget. Social media is free so they are forced to go that route. The students and employees get the message, but apparently don't care. How many of the average birminghamians get UAB's social media blasts. It takes money to reach them, but they don't,have it.

Person answering calls at Alumni office said they knew nothing about these promotions. I spoke to lady selling tickets at BJCC. She said that they were informed about promotions on Monday. She flipped over her seating diagram and the memo about promotion was there. The writer of this story needs to clarify who really does not care about UAB.

Employees do not get these messages. You are wrong.

I meant to say you are wrong as usual. You respond way too much with almost on insight. I repeat, you are wrong.

They do if they follow UAB on social media, just as anyone does.

The youth promotion has not been announced anywhere I can find. I did see one twitter announcement Wednesday night sent on Monday for employees. It had fallen so far down list by that point. Regardless, not a very good way of communicating..

I would not bash Joe Goodman. He has written many pro-UAB articles including some critical ones during the football shutdown that helped our cause.

I would. He is a prick for stirring it up. Now every other CUSA school has something to talk about.
