Although I don't think AD/RA has his sites set on a higher gig (e.g., Kevin White, Gene Smith, Steve Patterson (insert cough here), etc.), this is the new reality - particularly for the staff.
The new professional class of administrators, cannot grasp the pure, emotional connection that us fans/alums have. They bank on the connection, with sales of tickets and gear, but they fail to understand the (in many cases) life long commitments.
If even you have to fake it - they should express some sincerity.
Say what you will about CTG, he was "all in" as a Sun Devil, including committing to donate to the stadium fund in a meaningful way.
I remember meeting Bruce Snyder at a gathering, and after a brief chat and introduction, and my admitting to being an alum and fan, he went right to "are you a season ticket holder?" without skipping a beat. A very nice guy.
