TYPICAL OF THE MANY WAS BY NY TIMES' RICHARD SANDOMIR IN HIS ARTICLE (9/24/06) ABOUT FALLOUT FOR YANKEE SEASON TICKET HOLDERS AND THE SECONDARY TICKET MARKET IN GENERAL. OF COURSE, THE ARTICLE IS GEARED TO CREATE HATRED AND ENVY TOWARD THE YANKEES--WHY? BECAUSE HATE AND ENVY APPARENTLY SELL COPIES FOR A DESPERATE NEWSPAPER. (IT'S ALSO EASIER THAN COMING UP WITH SOMETHING USEFUL). Within the article, but not highlighted is this:
- "If the plan proceeds, the Yankees would follow the lead of 27 other major league teams that are already in the secondary market, including the Mets."
OH, THEN IT'S NOT JUST THE YANKEES TRYING TO BE GREEDY AND HATEFUL. A LOT OF TEAMS ARE TRYING TO BE GREEDY AND HATEFUL. SANDOMIR HAD ME CONFUSED FOR A MINUTE.
