Promise: Bring People Together
This may have been Dave Checketts most important promise and biggest failure. He allowed his team to ally with Salt Lake County's most controversial politicians and sat back to let them do all the work. Then when it became a seriously divisive issue with very real PR problems, he hid behind those politicians, confident that their power and influence will carry RSL to its destination. Now that his politicians have failed, Dave Checketts can't say enough bad about enough people. Instead of recommitting to the team, and the fans, he's taking childish pot shots at whoever pops their head up. Nothing like a rich man throwing a public tantrum to "bring people together" in disgust and contempt.
