Re: Selig sells out to Spider-Man
What bothers me, more than anything alse about this debacle (and others certainly to come in the future), is that the Commish has to know that the majority of fans out there will absolutely loathe this idea. yet he does it anyway. What is his motivation (that's a Psych101 question) for this? Does he really think that a sleazy money-grab promotion like this is going to bring more fans to MLB than it drives away? Does anyone think that the populace are going to stand up and stare at the spidey-bags and think to themselves: "Wow! I've always thought baseball was slow and boring, but with advertisements on the bags, it just RAWKS!" ? The money is nothing! Nothing!
Next thing you know, Estee Lauder will be shilling cosmetics on statues of the Virgin Mary.
I shudder. Shuddering is taking place right at this very moment.
Of course, I also have a cold.
