The "informed smack down" comment shows some of that bias I was talking about; you don't always hear all that's there, just enough to spin it to fit your views (which again can't realistically be considered as a substitute for truth).

2. You gotta admit, that's kinda what it sounded like. It did to me at least. Of course I could be and often am wrong. So if I was, my apologies.

3. Perhaps I've seen more of his posts or been involved in more discussions with him than you have. I've seen a lot of facts, I've also seen a lot of assumption and self-serving tirades that spin a topic around in a continual loop. Circular logic, no matter how eloquently stated, still doesn't make sense or make your point valid. Again, it isn't just him. It's the majority of people here, myself included (though not as much anymore since I cut back on my posting).

You can make an enemy out of me if you choose. It's not my intention though. Just trying to state a few things as truthfully as I see them.
I did not mean to put you in the camp of the pro-owner group. I haven't read enough of your posts to know, I simply did a poor job of specifying who I was referring to. It is I who owe you the apology in this case.
I agree with your "take no sides as long as the league is healthy" stance and respect it. It's the utmost in rational approaches to the situation at hand. Both sides need to 'win.'
2. No problem. A non-issue.
3. No desire whatsoever to make any enemy out of you or anyone else at this forum. You are pretty obviously a rational, level-headed individual and I apologize if I took a tone with you (or if it appeared as though I did) it was not meant to be personally disrepectful to you as an individual.
