    Default Bud Selig

    Last week on ESPN's Baseball Todays Podcast, Karabell mentioned Selig getting a statue in Milwaukee. He said something to the effect that pigeons will have a place to hang now. The next day he came on a special podcast (not scheduled)to apologize about his remarks. There has been no podcast this week which makes me think he got suspended, fired, or wrist slapped for a week due to the Selig remark.

    Now I hear Scot Van Pelt is in hot water over Selig comments! So we live in a communist contry where you can't have an opinion. Espn must really be at the mercy of Bud Selig.


    I hate Bud Selig, and the Exec's at ESPN whom lick his nuts.

    I can't stand Bud. Every year I hope the All Star Game is tied after 10 innings just to watch that man squirm.

    A-****ing-Men.

    Espon has been hanging from Bud's ballsac all decade long because Bud has chosen to ignore MLB's issues and fix them which would erase the ratings push ESPN gets from large market domination. The *******s at ESPN don't want to have to talk about the Kansas City Royals and Pittsburgh Pirates. It pained the hell out of them to discuss the Tampa Bay Rays especially when it was clear the Yankees were going to be eliminated from the playoffs that year.

    I challenge Van Pelt to make a very similar comment about Gary Bettman and see if anything happens. Then Van Pelt can go into full out suing mode

    Is Van Pelt in trouble again or are you just now hearing about the one from last year? Here's the thing from last year. It's awesome.

    Thanks for that youtube, Jnn. I had never heard this. Guy lost all credibility when he tried to say that David Stern has done a remarkable job with the NBA when that league is losing money left and right and has the some many holes in a CBA that even has a salary cap and actual draft slotting.

    It's more than what Bud has accomplished, but Stern is a hack. He mentioned goodell as well. He talks about how when you think of Selig all you think about is steroids and then ignores (must be from the boston market) that the first thing linked to Goodell is the Patriots and spygate. after that it's taking away football games from cities and shipping them overseas and then currently it's allowing the CBA and cap to disappear. Goodell could actually go down as someone that will make Bud Selig look good.

    I looked up the Karabell thing. It wasn't actually Karabell who said anything, it was his cohost Peter Pascarelli. The podcast didn't air last week, then came back today with just Karabell, and apparently Pascarelli is gone for good. All he did is make one pigeon poop joke. Jesus...

    WOW

    So basically the Redsox/Yankees Sports Network won't allow for any jokes or negative comments to be made about Bud Selig?

    Pathetic

    I don't like reading the Sports Guy's columns very often, but he definitely serves a purpose, and that is subtly pointing out how ridiculous his employer is. Today (the day the podcast returned without Pascarelli) Bill Simmons put up this on Twitter:

    Idea for Bud Selig's statue: Put smaller statues of players roiding up in front of it as Bud's statue looks the other way. about 2 hours ago via web

    One more idea for Bud Selig's statue: They should black it out every Saturday afternoon during baseball season.

    One more idea for Bud Selig's statue: Have him watching a blank TV screen that has the plaque, "The 1994 World Series."


    It's most likely not just a coincidence that he does this today (a few weeks after the Selig statue story first came out). He's done a lot of things like this in the past just to test them.

    Between this and Kornheiser we may be seeing an "on-air" revolt.

    I'm an SF Giants fan and I found this website while searching for articles with more information about what happened to Peter. I was listening when he made his joke, which was completely warranted, and I found it somewhat unbelievable that Selig or ESPN could care. They all need to buy themselves sports cars and build their own statues to themselves. I just want to say that I greatly appreciate the general disdain for Selig and ESPN displayed here.
