    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    But I bet it's not with photo credit. If it is, let's talk. I've got some questions.

    I would pay for a clean photo, but you have those two bozos on the field in your pic. You needed to muscle them out of the picture. Try harder next time.

    BTW, I have no clue on this next question. No frame of reference. What's a reasonable payment for a photo?

    It depends on the usage of the photo. I'll say this much: I requested $65 for this photo AFTER they used it without asking. Yes, they've gone through all of this ignoring of my request for three entire weeks and multiple emails (I've got the guys phone number now and will be calling him tomorrow to see if that will get me anywhere. This guy is an attorney in Baltimore who deals with this stuff for BP - and is the same guy who has been simply ignoring my emails - and yes, I have proof that he's well aware of the situation and has simply been ignoring it) over something this small. A professional photographer friend of mine actually yelled at me for only asking for $65. Legally speaking, what they did, if I took them to court for it, the smallest amount that I could be rewarded would be $200 plus the cost of my attorney fees. The most, I believe, would be $30,000 plus attorney fees.

    This whole thing has been a big mess. Once I get paid, I'll share more of the story.

    When MLB was using my photos a few years ago without permission, they paid me significantly more per photo than $65 per. In hindsight, I should have asked for probably 2-3 times what they ended up paying me. That check, though, got me through some things at the time that was certainly needed.

    San Diego signed a two year agreement with Amarillo. Looks like Minnesota has Pensacola.

    Reds back to Chattanooga is a pretty good deal. Just getting caught up a bit on teams relocating. When the Reds were the Mudcats at AA we travelled to see Carolina at Chattanooga. The Lookouts were with the Dodgers at the time. Like the park.

    Don't want to clutter this thread, but if anyone actually cares (and I don't blame you if you don't), here's the story and breakdown of what went down: http://www.redszone.com/forums/showt...17#post3858617

    This past week I, coincidentally, spent time in both Pensacola and Chattanooga. Chattanooga is a very nice city with an interesting downtown area. Pensacola has white sand beaches and gave me an award. Pensacola wins.

    Of course Chattanooga is closer.

    Sod Poodles? Sure looks like a Great Plains Terrier to me.

    Apparently it was a frontier nickname for a Prairie Dog.

    Without getting political, the "nickname" is going to be the Soddies. Considering the current world climate, and how often people pronounce Saudi's, I'm not certain they thought that through.

    I'da gone with Poods.

    What would have been wrong with Prairie Dogs?
