    Re: Selig sells out to Spider-Man

    MLB executives say they respect baseball's traditions but need to attract younger fans. As for the critics, MLB President Bob DuPuy says, "These are the same people that didn't like interleague play and didn't like the wild card" playoff format. Having decorative bases "really doesn't have an effect on the game within the foul lines," he says. "It's not like we are going to have a red-and-black ball. The game itself won't be affected."
    What does decorating bases with stupid Spider man logos have to do with trying to draw younger fans? Kids dont go to baseball games in hopes of seeing Spider man ads everywhere.

    Just another step towards the European style sports advertisement.

    See the soccer jersey's with the Sponsors name 3 to 4 times the size of the team's logo across the front. See the NFL Europe jersey's dotted with ads. That's the future.

    Selig and Co a few years back brought up the topic of including small ads on the sleeves of players unis. Don't think that idea just went away.

    It's coming, a way to put more money in the owners pocket.

    Just another wonderful addition to the game of baseball by Bud Selig.

    Re: Selig sells out to Spider-Man

    Guess what, sports fans? Doing this is against baseball's own rules. But so is ownership in more than one team but what's a rules violation amongst friends, huh?


    1.06
    First, second and third bases shall be marked by white canvas bags, securely attached to the ground as indicated in Diagram 2. The first and third base bags shall be entirely within the infield. The second base bag shall be centered on second base. The bags shall be 15 inches square, not less than three nor more than five inches thick, and filled with soft material.

    1.07
    The pitcher's plate shall be a rectangular slab of whitened rubber, 24 inches by 6 inches. It shall be set in the ground as shown in Diagrams 1 and 2, so that the distance between the pitcher's plate and home base (the rear point of home plate) shall be 60 feet, 6 inches.

    Bud Selig is the biggest freaking moron ever. Period. Revenue disparity has to be the biggest problem in baseball right now, or one of them at least. So what does Bud do? He makes it worse with stupid little things like this that hurt the integrity of the game to boot. He is a *****, and he's in the process of totally killing this game.

    You mean your 12 yr old son doesnt go to the games in hopes to see ads on bases? Surely you are mistaken.

    What a dumb dumb dumb idea, so when Bud finally kills off the MLB do you think Cincy will have a team in the new leagues?

    Re: Selig sells out to Spider-Man

    Did I read that article right? 3-4M total?? So Pud is willing to open this Pandoras box and p.o. more fans for 3-4M for the whole of MLB? Thats just ignorant.

    When the day comes that MLB teams look like NASCAR, why do I get the distinct feeling the Reds will be the ones sponsored by Chico's Bail Bonds??
