I'm a Red Sox fan. I basically can't stand Steinbrenner. He's a bombastic boor. I'm surprised more of his employees don't suggest to him in no uncertain terms to shove it where it's always dark. As for Roger, he's a coward in my book. Put that phkr in the Nat'l League, where he has to stand in with a bat in his hands and let him try the crap he pulls. Wouldn't be long before he got a ball in his earhole.
So, we agree, sorta. My point about George the Gorge was he didn't make the rules, he uses them.
Also, Lakers aren't buying a run at the ring here, not like you're suggesting. Payton and Malone could have gotten TONS more money to play elsewhere. Malone, for example, is playing for a bit over a million this year; last year he made 19.2 mill. They want rings.
