    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.
