    Stern on Cowterd {merged}

    Cowterd is *****ing about the Hornet's staying in NO. Stern told him we have more season tickets sold than most teams, sponsorship is higher than a lot of teams, the state will have a great lease agreement and the Hornet's projections in earning show they won't need revenue sharing. Once Stern shot him down about moving team, then he says the Hornet's should be contracted. Stern said first it's move them and then contract them, no reason for it.

    Wow. I can't believe he went at the commissioner with his usual line of BS. That must mean he really believes the crap he's selling, or maybe getting put in your place by the commissioner is good for ratings.

    I don't take anything Cowherd seriously. Him and Mannix are such opinionated weasels.

    Don't take it personally. This is what the national media is shoving down everyone's throat.

    He hates small markets. But, what kind of league would it be with 5 or 6 big market teams. You leave out 90% of country.

    What I like is how Stern pretty much shut him down hard. Cowherd threw his usual crap at the commissioner, and he held himself well. Stern knows what everyone else knows: Cowherd is just talking, nothing he says means anything.

    Hilarious.

    What do those *******s have against New Orleans? Like us having two pro teams is somehow demeaning to their big market egos.

    Why do you take it seriously? They have voices but it's not like they are used for anything more than entertainment purposes. Same goes for Skip Bayless. The only fool in the matter is the one who feels the need to respond to them.

    What I take from this is how strong of a stance Stern took toward New Orleans. He was on with a host who's as hostile toward the Hornets in New Orleans as anyone in the country, and he stood firm. The fact that he was willing to stand up for New Orleans is a great sign for me.

    I agree with both of these:

    I don't take Cowherd seriously. What I do take seriously is how good Stern was in that fashion. Like DarkHornet says, it shows how strong he's supporting the city.

    I am too glad that he's sticking by his commitment to New Orleans and seeing it through. If it doesn't work for the Hornets in New Orleans, it won't be because of a lack of effort. I commend him for that.

    I think the all-star game held here is what changed his opinion of NO.

    I didn't listen, but what response does Cowturd give? How do you defend your point of saying its not an NBA town, they should leave, etc. if this team sells 10k season tickets during a lockout with its 2 long time faces of the franchises on the way out?

    Oh my God, everyone has to listen to this, even if you think you didn't want to. Stern absolutely tears into Cowturd.

    LOL! Stern: "A source??!! I announced that at a press conference."

    Thanks to wopester I took a listen, because I certainly didn't want to.
