everyone is entitled to cbus's opinion.
to compare the baseball union with other unions across the country is ludicrous. no other union in this country has members who average $2.3 million/year in salary.
fans do have a say, with their wallets. if i choose to not ever spend another dime on the game, that is my prerogative. we support the players and the owners by going to games, watching games on tv, buying the products they advertise during the games, and buying merchandise. and if enough people walk away, it does hurt them. owners can spend their money anyway they see fit, so can i.
perhaps you shouldn't tell me or anyone else who is a fan of the game that we don't love the game if we stand up for ourselves in this whole mess. NOBODY is watching out for the fans here.
baseball has lost touch with the fans. and if they aren't careful, they will look back one day and say, "hey, we didn't have it so bad."
i love this game. it kills me to see this happening.
and it pisses me off to have to listen to people like you tell me what to do with my time and hard earned dollar.
