    That dick would call for the contraction of the Beirut Bombers, the Islamabad Jihad, the Kabul Krusade, and 3 terrorist cells to be named later.

    Instead, he's just ruining baseball. Or maybe he's also managing VH.

    I know this will be banished to the non-VH area soon, but had to vent.

    Your analogy wouldn't work...

    Because right now the Bin Laden Building Bombers would be considered a "winning" team in Major League Terrorism, and even after their impending loss to the Yankees, would still be able to sell out seats at Allah's Elbow Memorial Stadium in Kabul.

    (That is assuming there is still a stadium standing, or enough people left to buy tickets)

    Don't blame Selig, the blame lies with 28 of the owners of baseball (the 28 that voted in favor).

    In fact, the owners were apparently all for contracting 4 teams. Selig limited it to 2. It's all about $$$ - this way they only have to split the pie 28 ways.

    I wish it would be 4 teams. The league is getting to watered down IMO. You have owners that only pull 6-7000 and with revenue sharing they just keep feasting off other hardword and profits. Is a damn shame to have Vlad G. wasting away in Montreal.

    Baseball should have thought of that before they went on with adding a bunch of teams. A team like Minnesotta, that has a history about it should not be eliminated. It should be the last teams added, first teams dropped. Pro sports is all about money anyways, so it does not matter. They should also think about limiting the salaries that these players are getting these days. Too many millions of dollars for some cry baby athlete that does not know what a real days work is all about. That would bring ticket prices down and maybe people would start going to games again.

    I'll be the first one to say all sports are over-expanded right now.

    Consider the NFL. A couple of years back the Oilers move to Tennessee. Now next year they're giving Houston ANOTHER football team (the Texans). The hell?!? If they didn't support the first one, why would they support this one?

    I would have never added the Diamondbacks and Devil Rays in MLB. Adding the Marlins and the Rockies seemed like a decent idea to me because the National League was a few teams short to begin with. But think about it - Arizona could have had a team anyway. All they would have needed to do was court the Expos and rename them when they moved.

    This season was a prime example that you cannot buy a contender. See Alex Rodriguez and the Texas Rangers.

    That contract of his could be the reason players could be locked out, teams could be eliminated, etc. Pretty sad.

    JWS, your absolutely right. And who has to pay for his big contract? The fans. We are the ones who have to pay inflated ticket prices, huge parking fees, and $5.00 for a lousy beer (really, it is only about a half a beer). I took my kid to an A's game last year and it cost me over $100.00 by the time we were done. That is what is killing pro sports these days.

    It isn't that Houston couldn't support the Oilers. People in Houston loved that team, they just got sick and tired of Bud Adams constantly pushing for more public money to give him what he wanted. Around 1988, Bud convinced the city that he needed the Astrodome to be able to seat more people, so they took out the giant scoreboard in centerfield and added more seats. Consequently removing the uniqueness that made the Astrodome a special stadium. Then no less than five or six years later, Bud comes back and says now he needs a whole new stadium and guess who he wants to pay for it? Now after the deal with the Astrodome and the Oilers humiliating defeats in the playoffs (remember the famous Bills comeback) the citizens were ready to tell Bud to take a flying leap. The point is that Houston can and will support pro football over just about any other sport, it just got tired of Bud Adams.
