Another Scary Article...re: licensing stats, etc...

Postby Pujols100M » Wed Feb 09, 2005 4:38 pm

This is pretty much a follow up from the scary article listed elsewhere in this forum. CDM has filed a lawsuit against MLB. Sorry if this has already been posted. I feel like we may have another Bad News Bears incident in the Astrodome..."LET THEM PLAY...LET THEM PLAY" Does MLB have to control/own absolutley everything??

They can't take your leagues away. They can only take the right to use player and team names away.
