    Well if the only way to support it is to help pay the fine, then no I do not support it. I thought it was awesome though, as I mentioned previously.
    woops my bad. but seriously?

    you support it, but wouldn't dream of shelling out a single penny? at least I'm pretending I would

    Sorry, didn't realize you were semi-serious about the suggestion, nothing in your post indicated as such. And I do get the point, Raps fans pay MU's fine and that sends a message of support and all that...great. And hey, if you want to be one of those fans to donate to something that MU did and got fined for, even though you don't agree with what he did, then by all means. The voluntary aspect of your suggestion is more than obvious btw. Is there even another option?

    And yes, it does pain me to support the Raptors by watching their games on TV. Why? Because the only reason I even have cable is to watch the Raptors. So knowing I'm shelling out $80-$100 per month, or whatever it is (i'd have to check with the gf) just to watch 2, 3 or 4 games a week for 8-9 months a year...well, yeah, that kinda sucks. But hey, if I don't do that, then I don't watch the games and I don't support the Raps or the league, but because I find it entertaining and interesting it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make, but I don't have to like it! Nonetheless, I am not willing to sacrifice $1 to pay for MU's PR mistakes or team spirit, tongue in cheek or not!
    Have you not head of league pass? Get a good broadband connection and stream all the games for the price of 2-3 months of cable. There are even cheaper alternatives too like Ballstreams. I ditched cable 2 years ago and have never looked back.

    I have streamed games in the past and the quality just sucked. Maybe I was just streaming from bad sources, I don't know. Aren't all Raps games blacked out on league pass anyways?

    There are tons of free ways to get around the blackouts. Just google it. Quality is pretty dependent on your internet connection, so I'd take the cable money and put it towards faster broadband speeds. Comcast offers a 50 MBS package where I live and it streams everything no problem.

    He got fined $25K by the NBA. He has to apologize publicly. How is that flying so far over your head?

    If you listen to the actual interview, he sounds legitimately ashamed. Doesn't sound like a canned apology at all.

    I'm going to mostly ignore the Rob Ford point. I don't really support him, but think the discussion should be centered around his actual performance on the job. Extra-curriculars shouldn't factor into hiring/firing someone (I actually think that stems from one of the greatest issues in current democracies, which is the obsession/emphasis put on appearance, campaign ads and PR as opposed to voters actually educating themselves about the issues at hand).

    Ok, so I didn't really ignore that... sorry.

    And... realized I didn't have anything else to add to the convo I'd delete this but I've come this far...
    Lol all I'm going to say about this is, as with anyone, don't trust what someone has to say about their own job performance.

    And Stooley I wasn't laughing at your comment itself, I was laughing at the fact that we'd actually begun to discuss Ford. For some reason I found that funny.

    Just my opinion, i don't think the F Brooklyn comment was disrespectful at all. I truly believe that he said that to PUMP UP THE CROWD outside. That's all it is.

    You know what's disrespectful?? tanking the last 5 games of the season so that they can play the Raptors in the playoffs. Now that's disrespectful.

    I'd say both acts were disrespectful.

    Not sure. Bob Mccown said something along these lines earlier today.

    What we have to do is:

    Go to Brooklyn, fuck them up in games 3 and 4 come home and win in 5.

    They can't complain no more.

    you dont even need to pay for it if you have an jailbroken ios device. i get league pass for free now after paying for it for a while and having pretty much every raptor game being blacked out. now i can watch every game no matter what due to jailbreak tweaks.
