It isn't much fun being a Cleveland Cavaliers fan right now.  Much of that angst had been focused directly on LeBron James.  With the Heat having disposed of the Cavaliers twice already this season, and the team sitting at 8-20 in the Central Division, fans are beginning to get restless - back-to-back 60-win seasons will do that.

One fan has decided to take his frustration out on Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert.  How?  The self-described season ticket holder has purchased a sponsorship block on the Cavaliers page over at Basketball-Reference.com.  Take a look -

Wow!  Actually comparing Dan Gilbert to Ted Stepien?  Clearly that might be a bit harsh since Gilbert has yet to have rules named after him the way Ted does, but the point can be made that while Gilbert talked a tough game this past summer about doing whatever it took to make the Cavaliers a winner, the team has remained stagnant, though patience might be the best medicine right now anyway.

The Cavaliers do need to be careful they don't lead the fan base to believe they are not trying to win - aka the Indians - or they could expect to see a ton of empty seats at The Q, as well as more angry fans taking their frustrations, and dollars, to the Internet.
