Conspiracy theorists in the DC/Baltimore area have a decent amount of evidence/stories showing Orioles owner did this on purpose for a long time.

I wish the the parties would just suck it up and start hammering out the economic issues. Determing how many rolls of TP each stall can get per year is neat, but that crap can get taken care of quickly. It seems like both sides are stalling while still being able to tell their respective groups they're doing something.
