Why? When he says directly that there was never any intention to play more than 60 games, how is that a stretch. And how does that have anything to do Personal feelings? After all, he said it, and whether somebody loves him or hates him, he still said it, and he still said something that cannot really be explained away.
And you don’t have to look very hard to find plenty of responses that say basically the same thing.
If this is directed at me, I strongly object. I posted the question to ask questions. Manfred’s comments are very clear and on the surface at least, extremely implicating.
I did not “editorialize.” I specifically asked for insight from any lawyers in the crowd.
My negative opinion of Manfred is based on real things that he has really done that are arguably quite detrimental to the game, and that negative opinion is shared by a vast quantity of fans.
If you think I have some kind of inherent bias, and that I merely hate the guy because he has bad teeth, you are very demonstrably wrong, but the problem can be solved by just ignoring anything I write in the future.
