How incredibly stupid are the players and owners? Didn't the crowd reaction at the all-star game and the vitrolic booing Bud Selig got at Cooperstown on Sunday teach them anything? Of course not.
ESPN on Sunday aired behind the scenes footage of the All-Star game and the players really came off as clueless morons who really could not understand how angry fans will be if they strike. They also came off as overpaid primadonnas with their "Oh the game is a time. Let's get the hell out of here" attitude.
Oh well, it was a nice season while it lasted. Bye Bye Baseball. At least Football is starting soon to fill the void.

Can Paul Taglibue please go over to MLB HQ with a couple of large men ,kick in the door and toss everyone out on the street and say "this is how you run a Professional sports league...?" And then could Gene Upshaw invite Donald Fehr on PTI (five good minutes with Donald Fehr) and beat the living shit out of him?
Do these people really believe that another strike wont decimate Major League Baseball? How can they not understand that the an entire generation of young fans will turn awy from Baseball and never go back?

NFL = The best run league, no doubt. The CFL is making a nice comeback as well (compared to the mid-90's). EVERY league can learn from the NFL.

It took me five years to watch another baseball game after the season ending world series cancelling strike. I do not think I will come back again with another strike. The allstar game was bad enough..the tie was one thing, but watching the bored expressions on the players faces as the "greats of the game" were being introduced just floored me. It was clear that they were all thinking "come on, get this over with". They just do not care. Very sad, these primadonnas don't have a clue how good they have it, and how soon they will be forgotten when they finish ruining the game.
