  •  While GOP Congressional leadership... (12+ / 0-)

    ...warned the NFL and NBA to not "risk tarnishing their images" by helping to spread info about exchanges.

    Fair and balanced.

      to make the call.....Fuck the owners.

      •  Next time ANY sports fan tells you their owners... (0+ / 0-)

        ...can't afford a player, ask them when was the last time the owners let that fan see their financial books.

        I refuse to make excuses for a team's billionaires. If they can't afford a player, they can't afford the team. After's their word the sports fan is taking for what the team can and cannot afford. I never yet met a billionaire THAT honest about their profit and loss.

        •  Sports is one of the few places.... (0+ / 0-)

          ....where the bottom line is quality, NOT the next quarter's profits.

          The Pittsburgh Pirates (my team) has been profitable recently while not having a winning season since 1992.

          I don't see everyone celebrating Bob Nutting's business acumen - he's vilified for not building a winning team (I am dreading the late season swoon this year....)

          9-11 changed everything? Well, Katrina changed it back.
