It’s just the old Sharpton playbook from back in the 80’s. We’re gonna stand outside your factory and shout until you pay me. It’s just on a much bigger scale and a lot more money involved, but Sharpton wrote the book on this shakedown.

I'm a small fish, but that decision cost them $25/month in the form of my MLB.tv subscription. I had literally signed up for the free trial the day before due to the Bally Sports kerfuffle and cancelled the second I heard the news.

Also Jesse Jackson would extort money from corporations. He go AB to give his son a distributorship, which is like a mint. He then years later came back to the till and threatened AB. I’ll give it to AB and they told him to F off.

It’s pretty impressive what Abrams has done from creating havoc behind the scenes after losing the governor election bid. She got mail in ballots last spring, illegally harvested votes, flipped the state to blue. Has a bigger ego now, feeling bold.

MLB is really bad at this... Maybe that is a good thing. They havent played along with the Woke crowd as much. This first go around was a failure. Moved the game for voter suppression laws that are the opposite of voter suppression. Now taking heat bc it would hurt the black businesses
All on the same team complaining about what side of the same team they should follow. Holy Shit this is great

The owners are not wrong. The race to be the most ignorant woke org. in the country is a stiff competition right now. Who would have thought MLB wanted to lose their fanbase over something that is a false narrative.
Idk if anyone could ever beat Google. They have the most embarrassingly easily triggered HR in the country

He tried to strong arm Boeing back in the late 80's-early 90's. My sainted mother was part of the group that told him to kick rocks. Feelsgoodman.

Nice. That would be a interesting time to here the stories play by play.

Just an attempt to put Stacy on a platform to show she has got some "pull".
Getting her primed for another run at the governorship.

BTW, the Masters is starting up without a hitch.
Actually there is a hitch. It's not fully opening the course to pre-Wuhan spectator levels. My guess is many of the members don't want the backlash about fully opening the course when their respective businesses still are requiring masks and distance.

I think it's more that they don't want the plebes at their club at all, and they're using COVID as a reason to keep a good number of them out for another year.

If they took a blind survey of the members at large, I think you are on to something. The leadership will play both sides of the coin but the members you do not know about want that place to be theirs and nobody else's. Been that way for decades.

I think most members would prefer to get rid of the Masters entirely.

MLB is dead to me now too.
Lifelong Phillies fan. Went to my first game (spring league game) this March with my 3 sons. My oldest is also a Phillies fan. Haven’t watched a second of MLB since the all star announcement.

sucks too as I love watching baseball with my boys. But, have to take stand, right? My oldest agrees with the boycott, which warms my heart.

I'm glad I was able to see the Dodgers win last year because this year MLB is dead to me. Get woke, go broke.
