Well, I had predicted that the Bankruptcy Court would allow Frank McCourt to seek offers for the Dodgers’ TV rights… and it did. And, I predicted that Fox would lose on appeal… and they didn’t! I was wrong!
You have two judges that are polar opposites on this issue. I think it’s just another case of two judges on the left and right disagreeing, and I am so sick of politics in everything.
I agree with William Shakespeare, “the first thing we should do is kill all the lawyers.” But, I digress. Actually, I don’t know what bearing the ruling will have on the sale of the Dodgers, except that if Frank doesn’t get the bids he wants, he will say it’s because he was not allowed to seek a new TV deal.
Don’t think this was a win. It might prolong the sale.
My real job is water treatment. Sometimes people have such bad water that they say “maybe I should drill a new well.” I remind them that if they do that, one of three things will happen:
- You will get better water;
- You will get worse water; or
- You will get the same water.
The sale of the Dodgers is just like that. When it is over (and hopefully, it will be sooner and not later), Dodger fans will have a better owner, a worse owner or the same owner!
Doesn’t that just make your day, knowing that you have a 66.6% chance of things being the same as they are now… or worse? (vomit noises)
