There is none, that's why its a fallacy. But not all slippery slopes are false. It is possible
that Selig will continue to push more aggressive advertising campaigns to line his pockets. The Spiderman ads don't upset me, but they do concern me.

I'm not sure about the reaction to the first ads in ballparks, but I do know that they are now(and have been for years) paying the price for commercials. Game times are lengthened to accomodate TV sponsors and it is the slow pace of play that has been most attributed to youth disinterest (if you buy into the youth being disinterested).
What will be the windfall of allowing sponsors more control of the game? To avoid another slippery slope argument I will just say I have no idea, but would rather not find out.
