Re: Elbow out ESPN on to its own tier
There's only one way to "stop the cycle": outlaw advertising during sports broadcasts. No more millions of dollars going into the pocket of each "star" player (or the organization behind him--NFL/NBA/etc franchise, university athletic programs, whatever). So, if anyone wants to see some bozo run around a field or court playing with a ball, then he or she will have to pay what it's worth to him or her. Yeah, I can see those 7 and 8 figure "salaries" dropping down to 5 figures overnight... why, these multi-billion dollar businesses might even become "sports" again... there goes double-digit inflation... where will it all end? (OK, time to wake up now...)
