Instead, it got a lot of attention as a footnote. Many of the articles written about Winston being butthurt mentioned things like "on the same day that a banner flew calling for Cassel to be benched" and that kind of thing.
In the end, it got the local sports writers riled up, and the word is that it definitely got Clark's attention. That's progress.
(Oh, and the cause has raised about $3500 of the $650 needed to fly the banner, so this won't be the end of it.)
