If I’m an NBA owner, I officially dig in my heels, stick to giving players 47% of Basketball Related Income and wait for them to come crawling back….
It’s easy for the Kobe Bryants and LeBron James of the world to state publicly they’re “union guys” and “prepared to sit out the season,” but let’s see what happens when DeAndre Jordan Devin Ebanks begin missing checks….
It’s billionaires vs. millionaires and in almost every case the billionaire wins….
The owners brought up the idea of a 50/50 split, which was quickly rejected by the players, so it’s time to withdraw the offer and hardball the players….
I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just saying that’s what I’d do if I owned a team….
After a month or so, the players will realize they’re going broke, throw up the white flag and sign a deal they hate….
The owners have the players over a barrel and should make no further compromise. It would be bad business to do otherwise….
Enjoyed the Republican debate last night, especially Herman Cain promoting his “9-9-9″ plan while the rest of them danced, dodged, rambled and refused to offer any solutions….
When asked by Cain to list any of his 59-point plan to turn around the economy, Mitt Romney couldn’t list one; instead he stumbled, mumbled, rambled and refused to answer the question….
Did they ever make a Mannequin 2? If not, I have the perfect guy for the lead….Rick Perry….
Like Romney, Perry is a stumbling, bumbling, back pedaling, lying fool; the difference is Romney is slick and articulate, even though he’s lying through his teeth….
Perry is so dull I have diffuculty staying awake to hear his lies….
Agree or disagree with Herman Cain, at least he’s the only one with a plan and stands by his convictions….
Wouldn’t it be great to see Cain run against Barack Obama in 2012? Having two black men running for the mort powerful position in the world would shut up all those hypocrites in Europe who call us backward, uneducated, racist cowboys….
How many of them have elected a black President?….
From what I hear, Saturday night’s Light Heavyweight championship fight between Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson at Staples is going to be a financial disaster….
The word is the promoters are giving away tickets to paper the house, so the HBO cameras won’t show an embarrassing crowd….
Neither fighter in from L.A., neither has a large fan base here and neither is Latino; ensuring no ticket sales. Why the promoters decided to put the fight in L.A. is a mystery….
Word is less than 2,000 tickets have been sold and the promoters might have to use the old trick of placing every fan on one side of the arena; the side which will be on camera….
On top of everything else, the fight looks to be a dreadful bore…
It should be a 12-Round snoozefest with almost nobody in attendance…
Prediction? Dawson by split decision in a fight Hopkins clearly wins….
Nobody in the boxing establishment likes Bernard and if it’s close he’ll get screwed; as he did against Jermain Taylor, Joe Calzaghe and Jean Pascal….
The problem for Bernard is nobody will want to see a rematch….
This fight should have been held in Canada, where they love boxing and would have drawn a sell out crowd….
What a shocker, the NCAA closing its investigation of Auburn and Cam Newton by declaring the school did nothing wrong in their recruitment of Newton and there will be no penalties….
Had this been USC, Oregon or any Pac-12 school, the penalties would have been strict and severe….
Not only did Auburn recruit a kid who was arrested for robbery while at Florida, Newton’s father apparently had his son up for sale to the highest bidder….
Four Auburn players, in an interview with HBO, admitted they receiver improper benefits; yet the NCAA will take no action on this, either….
Need any further evidence the BCS/SEC controls college football, looks out for only themselves and will look the other way wen major violations occur?….
USC gets a two-year bowl ban for Reggie Bush’s parents getting cash to rent an expensive house and Auburn gets nothing for the Newton scandal?….
Hopefully some enterprising reporter from HBO or a major network digs into this and exposes for BSC/SEC for what they are; a corrupt, hypoctitical crime family with a monopoly on college football….
