This is a husband and wife, legally separating, and she is entitled to 1/2 the marital assets cus they built those assets together.
huh? who is "this women" you are talking about? i never mentioned anything about a specific case.
lol.

I wouldn't be surprised if his wife/ex wife will make out pretty damn good, these bitches always do. it's a shame really that when couples get divorced the woman gets half the man's stuff.

then of course you went on some tangent telling the world to prove you wrong. Which i'll just go ahead and pass on. You research it. Its apparent you havent.

it did crack me up though that you tried to pretend you didn't know "what woman" we are talking about here ... :-D

Even taking inflation into account, that sounds like a pretty good deal for the Dodgers given their valuation. Yet Selig says it's a bad deal and I believe him.

This leads me to believe that the Dodgers are actually worth a lot more than 800m.
i believe the reason Selig nixed the deal, was because a large portion of that loan was going to be a personal loan. i could be wrong.

that is the biggest reason. the fear is that even with the Fox deal the Dodgers would be in the exact same situation they are today in a couple years, only with even more of the value stripped out of the club

So I'm reading the latest Passan article and he says Bud Selig is at much to blame as anyone else. He could have picked Eli Broad to be the Dodger's owner, like the Mayor of L.A. wanted, but he went with McCourt instead. Broad was worth 3.8 billion at the time. Today, he is worth 5.8 billion.

Ooops.

edit, also found this from a 2004 article,

L.A. Mayor James Hahn confirmed Broad's proposal, saying that he had urged Broad to step forward "amid concerns from baseball officials and fans that McCourt might be stretched too thin financially to field a highly competitive ballclub."


Rich Hammond cited a source as saying of McCourt, "I'd give him three years before he has to sell the team. He will either realize he can't do it, or he just won't be able to make payroll."
"And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere. But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear." - The Rains of Castamere

point is that i wasnt the one who brought Jamie or any of the McCourts, and i dont why you continue to make it seem like i did... clearly you misread or are just being stubborn as usual. i merely commented on the fact that divorce settlements in general are, on average, not financially fair. monetarily, they benefit the woman a vast majority of the time. do you you deny that claim?

finances and divorce in general...
wasnt talking about McCourts specifically, never referred to either of them, and never made any claims about morality or length of marriage etc etc.
yet you said my "opinion of her is pretty clear".
wat
that stuff is all fabricated by you :-?

Go to http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3416836, click custom, put in the custom name: "Chapter" and pick any number and you get this message:

However, you can put "inchapter" as one word and it works.

This past winter, the Dodgers spent nearly $58 million to sign and retain free agents — mostly mediocre thirtysomethings. They owe Matt Guerrier and Juan Uribe a combined $33 million through 2013. (They owe Marquis Grissom — who hasn’t played for the Dodgers since 2002 or for anyone since 2005 — a shade more than $2.7 million, but that’s another story.) The trouble is that Guerrier (4.10 ERA, 4.70 SIERA) has given no indication that he can help a contender down the stretch. Neither has Uribe (.207/.273/.306, .209 TAv), which means that whomever rescues Los Angeles from the McCourts will continue to “benefit” from their services for the next couple of years.
