Bush lied people died
People always die.

Important politicians and military personnel always lie.

What's your point?

Just skimming the thread. MLB market share is down, so the answer is to make the Hall of Fame smaller?

You should probably do more than "skim" if you want to participate.

Lol. Yep that's essentially how we got here. Mike wants to attract new fans and, in his mind, a smaller, "less overwhelming" hall is the way to do it.

No, I don't have time to read everything.

And apparently MLS is going to surpass MLB in fandom, what an idiot.

OK, I'll give you the Reader's Digest version.

My contention is that the HOF would be better if it was less cumbersome.   Give the all-time greats a display with access, via some interactive button, to the lesser, yet still noteworthy, players.     Really has nothing to do with market share.   That came about 10 pages after the original subject.

And if, during your "skim", you found a post saying MLS was going to pass MLB, please quote it.   You stupid ****.

I'll add, in order to save your stupidass some time, that I mentioned baseball is a slow-paced game in a fast moving world.   I don't think that can be changed without affecting the integrity of the game.   But, if there's any way to quicken other aspects of the game, it needs to be done.   A more compact HOF is one thing that can be changed.   You can go thru the HOF and catch all the important stuff in a couple of hours or, with the ability to dig deeper, spend a weekend.

Is the HOF cumbersome? Have you ever been?

Such a potty mouth, U mad bro?

MLS is soccer, correct?
8/8/2014 12:44 PM
Nah, I just think you're a dumbass.   Of course, you already knew that.

Is MLS the only form of soccer?   I'll save some time.   I know jackshit about soccer but I do know that ESPN or NBC or somebody shows EPL games.   It's soccer.

Now, did you find a post saying "MLS will surpass MLB in the future"?  No?   Then why would you suggest that someone said that?
8/8/2014 1:23 PM
You said soccer. In America we have MLS for soccer. I figured no one could envision ENGLISH SOCCER would ever surpass MLB in popularity. You're trolling or a dumbass again.

When can I expect to see a wave of people wearing West Bromwich Albion jerseys?

Have you ever heard of those picture boxes?  We call them "televisions".    You can watch games without being in the stadium.   They even allow you to watch games on other continents.   The "television" companies pay the leagues to air these games.   So, here in America, we can get all kinds of soccer not just MLS.

But really, what are the chances that a European league is going to become hugely popular in America? Most people don't become emotionally invested in a team 3000-5000 miles away. Without that emotional investment, it won't catch on long term.
