The Coyotes’ presence is shaky, the Suns struggle to win, the Diamondbacks are arguing with everyone, but the Rattlers are still here, seem to be happy to represent us and have been, arguably, the most continuously successful professional sports team in Arizona.

But, if you read The Republic every day, you would think they have gone away and no longer exist. Why no coverage?

I had season tickets for the past 15-20 years until my son passed away. Due to age I can’t travel well at night anymore. Therefore, I want to rely on the paper for news about my Ratts, but today there was nothing in print or on line about their big victory yesterday.

Why are you ignoring one of the most loyal and entertaining sports franchises in Arizona?
