Mckenzie,Im not trying to tell you what to do with your money. but everyone seems to think its OK to tell the owners what to do with THEIR money.
As public as it may seem, baseball is ran by PRIVATE BUSINESSMEN. And who are we to tell these people what to do with their money.
TC, and others.... What is you not going to games going to prove? Who is going to "learn" this lesson that you are trying to "teach"? Ok, everyone stop going to games, do you think baseball is just going to hang around and be sad that nobody likes it? hell no! teams will be sold/folded, whatever. Something will be done to save at least some of the investment that the owners have made. I dont understand what your argument is for? The players wont be affected, they can always go somewhere else and play ball, plus most of them have allready made a small fortune for themselves.
And to all of you who ***** about the players making millions and having no right to be upset.. Face the facts, entertainment makes alot of money. Look at movie stars, writers, musicians, strippers. All these people make alot of money, and they are all doing the same thing, giving people something interesting to look at/listen to/read.
Sure, get pissed at george stienbrenner for buying players, its his money, he knows how to run a business. but also get pissed at Intel for spending alot of money researching and developing that P4 processor that you are using to make your ridiculous posts. The point I am trying to make is that Major League Baseball is a business, has been for a long long time. And if it took you til now to figure this out, I apologize.
So go out and teach baseball that lesson you want to teach, but also study for the lesson its going to teach you when it packs up and leaves for good.
