Well, thats not a very nice suggestion yotesreign. Morose Delectation. I dont believe anyone here wants to stage a Roman Holiday at the expense of Phoenicians. Nor even mild cases of Gluckschmerz should a miracle occur & someone actually steps from the shadows & buys the team, makes a go of it in Glendale.

Gluckschmerz another scary-sounding German word; to feel displeasure when good things happen to others. Like envy only worse because usually the person wrapped up in their Gluckschmerz doesnt event WANT whatever it is thats made someone else happy.... believed to be activated by a hormone in the brain called Oxytocin actually.

Clinical tests involving games of chance amongst groups of people supplied with inhalers containing Oxytocin bringing such feelings to the fore in extremes. Like Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth in Blue Velvet. Inhaler & tankard topped up with Oxytocin. Paranoia; Dont you look at me!... invoking seriously disturbed Freudian ego issues of the maternal bent. Mommy. Mommmmy.
