  •  No shit. Ownership of any major franchise is (6+ / 0-)

    limited to the 0.01% club.  So their ranks are most likely lacking many kind, sensitive, self-aware individuals, imo.

    And don't get too excited about Magic Johnson/Dodgers: his $50 million check only got him a 2.3% share.  Guggenheim Partners is majority majority owner since they paid most of the $2.15 billion purchase of the Dodger organization.  

    Clive is the man! Woooo! HAHAHAHAHA! Teh martyr weeps tonight...

      though -- most team owners hate the spotlight but you've got to have someone willing to make the public appearances to reassure the fans that the owners know what the hell they're doing (though right now the Dodgers are taking a lot of heat from fans due to the TV deal that cuts 70% of the fan base off from watching the games, including Vin Scully when the Dodgers are on the road).
