    This is from an American (Etats-Unis). I think both Bud Selig and Jeffrey Loria are, in the words of Louis LeBeau (Robert Clary) on "Hogan's Heroes":
    DIRTY VACHES!

    Check out this quote from http://www.sportsecyclopedia.com/nl/...milbraves.html

    "1965: Following the 1964 season, the Braves reached an agreement to move the team to Atlanta for the 1965 season. However, Bud Selig a local used car salesman, and minority Braves stockholder sued to block the move. Selig argued that a baseball team owed it to its community to remain loyal, and not seek new homes, because the loss of a baseball team meant the loss identity. A judge would grant an injunction forcing the Braves to stay in Milwaukee for one more season, but in the end the move to Atlanta was not going to be stopped. The Braves would go on to finish with an 86-76 record, despite playing a lame duck season in Milwaukee. During the club's 13 years in Milwaukee the Braves finished each season above .500. While the Braves were on their way to Atlanta the city of Milwaukee, would on be without Major League Baseball for 5 years, as Bud Selig the man who fought to keep the Braves, would eventually bring a team back to Milwaukee in 1970."

    Makes me sick...Especially after what he did to the Expos...:

    I agree. They should get a regular proofer.

    What's the problem here?? Knee-jerk anti-Seligism?? Until the Expos fiasco, no team had moved on Selig's watch and that wouldn't have happened had some one stepped forward with the cash and will to keep the Expos in Canada.
