I love how the writer labels the owners "robber-barons" and likens the cancelation of pre-season games to some Stalinist move without writing one sentence about what is actually going on in the negotiations or how either camp justifies their stance. The owners are "vain," "weak," "greedy" "rich guys." What are the players? A bunch of strong, modest poor people with their priorities in the right places? Please. They're just as vain, just as weak, just as greedy and nearly just as rich.
