has fancy plans, and pants to match
- Apr 12, 2001
Why would you be angry at both sides? The owners locked the players out. The players made a proposal in early December that the owners didn't respond to until six weeks later. And when they did, it was laughably bad. Then the owners start crying about mediation (PR ploy), start leaking that the union is being shadow run by Scott Boras (another PR ploy with a special guest boogey man that's completely untrue) and they also start hinting around the now that the leagues are shut down there's no real PED test (another greatest hits PR ploy).I'm (almost) speechless - and definitely pissed off at both sides (although more pox on the Owners).
The owners want to break the union. Badly. And they're trying to do everything that they can to get the public on its side. Only it's not working. Now, they're going to be the ones that are screwed because they need the revenue way more than the players do. And BTW, the players took their lumps the last two CBAs, so screw the owners and their greed. BTW, I expect Rob Manfred to completely fuck up his press conference today and say something that will anger the players going into this weekend's negotiations.
