    I am quite familiar with the ways of the US government, from JFK to Gulf of Tonkin to 911 I don't find it surprising at all, I just didn't know about the two different methods.

    While the 20% numbers are only estimates it is surprising to see such a gap between government reported statistics and third party estimates. I...

    I think this is my favourite post in the entire thread. Great Post.

    Ultimately the players make as much money as they do because we give it to them.

    Very interesting, nice post.

    I think the players have given up more than enough money in dropping from 57% to 52.5%. The only other thing I think needs to happen is to give owners/teams the...
