Re: Who Wins? College vs Euro
If you think David Stern isn't a tyrant that controls the nba anyway he can and demands what the media and fans think than I couldn't disagree with you more. The problem with the nba is I don't what's real and what's inflated. You have three former officals that admitted that league officals influenced them to favor games. There is an additional official Scott Foster that had taken over 130 personal calls from Tim Donaghy during his fixing affair. Over a third or nearly half of the league's offense being scored on the free throw line, the nba has problems and if I really wanted to bash the nba than I could go into the nba's accounting irregularities.
I view patriotism in professional sports as idiotic, sacrifice in professional sports isn't even close to real sacrifice. I have nothing against professional athletes helping themselves but they live in a different world than those that make real sacrifices.
