    Simply... TAKING BACK THE EAST IN 2007

    Here is an article about the potential sale, which sounds as if it is getting rather close...

    http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=ap-sportsshowcase&prov=ap&type=lgns

    Time Warner already sold off Turner South to Fox Cable Networks for $375 million. The longtime announcing team of Skip Caray, Pete Van Wieren, Don Sutton and Joe Simpson (along with Caray's son, Chip, a more recent addition) will be dumped from the remainder of the 58 Braves games shown by Turner South.
    And I know this part doesn't have to do with the team getting sold directly but its sucks to have heard that Turner South will be dumping Skip Caray, Pete Van Wieren, Don Sutton and Joe Simpson in favor of Bob Rathburn and Jeff Torborg.

      Only a couple of days left on this petition guys. It's going to be sent to the comissioner's office in just a day or two. Just yesterday on AM 680 here in Atlanta they mentioned Braves fans are "petitioning" Bud Selig to not allow the sale to Liberty Media so this thing may be getting more coverage than you'd think. The more signatures the better.

      Also yesterday at the conference announcing the Nats sale Selig was praising the importance of local ownership when there is a willing local owner available. Maybe a big enough uproar by Braves fans will give the commissioner all the motivation he needs to kill this sale to Liberty Media. If there is a hint that fans might not approve and would show that by not showing up to games or buying less merchandising then the commish has legitimate reasons to squash the sale and make Time Warner sell to someone who can actually tell you our starting lineup rather than someone who just knows the US Tax code.

      Let our voice be heard Braves fans!!!! :radio
      Let's go Braves!!

          The more the better. This team has got to go to Blank.

            What we really need is for the other MLB team owners to support selling to Blank. Bud is big on trying to keep the owners happy so if they went against this move with Liberty Media then I'm sure Bud would too.
