Links: Ted Leonsis To Shut Down His Team-Specific E-mail Addresses

WASHINGTON - APRIL 28: Ted Leonsis, the owner of the Washington Capitals, watches his team's 2-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens in Game Seven of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2010 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at the Verizon Center on April 28, 2010 in Washington, DC.

Today's links:

  • Ted Leonsis announces that he's shutting down his Wizards and Capitals e-mail addresses on August 1 because he's receiving too many useless responses that take him too long to read. Frankly, I'm surprised he didn't do this sooner. It has to be exhausting to respond to every single one, especially when so many don't offer much of anything. Leonsis insists he will still be transparent in other forums such as face-to-face communication, and I believe him on this front. [Ted's Take]
  • Leonsis talks more about his decision to Dan Steinberg. [DC Sports Bog]
  • One thing I know another team does is that they have an ideas e-mail that several people check, but they don't necessarily respond to every suggestion they get. It's like a drop box of sorts. That might be a good alternative for Leonsis to consider.
  • As noted yesterday, the Wizards are likely to amnesty Andray Blatche. The deadline is 5 p.m. today. [Washington Post | NBA.com]
