Will - I believe Hafner is signed to this contract through 2012 - so two more years for the Indians to deal with it.
I will be curious to see how the Marriott reacts. My sense is no convention they have had before has had the number of media needing wifi as this one. One would hope they are having the new Marriott complex with a better system and that they upgrade this one before the Super Bowl. There will be a lot more bad press to come out of less than ideal working conditions for the media there than will come out of this week.
Will - should I deliver a box of tissues to Keith Law's hotel after that whiny piece complaining about being in Indy?
But keep in mind it is still a government style cafeteria - fine cuisine its not. I like the Mass Ave choices better, but a longer walk in what looks like colder weather.
Shapiro's good but not cheap. If you want something that won't break the budget, go to the cafeteria in the Indiana Goverment Center, across the street from the Marriott. You will have to go through secruity (airport style) to get in the building - take the elevator down one flight and the cafeteria is there. Only for lunch during the work week, but you will get out of there reasonably inexpensively and it is better than fast food.
Thanks Will - so no new excitement for my lunch hour those days. Will have to wait for the NFL combine to trade those "guess who I saw" stories.
From reading the Indians beat writers, it seems Ocker and Hoynes don't need a special reason to be annoyed - their "mailbags" make them seem like bags of another kind on a regular basis.
OK Will - so for a regular stiff like me - what is there that I can see or do? Or am I pretty much limited to hanging around the Westin, Marriott and Hyatt and seeing who's around? Where will MLB Network, ESPN, etc do their reports from?
A salary cap in the NFL allows small market teams like Indianapolis and Pittsburgh to be among the most competitive. Without a salary cap could the Colts have afforded to keep Peyton Manning for his entire career? The Steelers have no fear of losing Big Ben to the highest bidder.
A salary cap in the NBA allows a small market team like San Antonio to remain competitive. It allows a team like Cleveland a reasonable chance to keep LeBron James. The Indians had no chance to resign Sabathia, but the Cavs have a chance to keep LeBron.
A salary cap penalizes NFL and NBA teams that make bad decisions (see Knicks, Redskins) regardless of how much many they can spend. It can lead to big markets having teams that are among the worst.
The lack of a salary cap keeps bad decisions from penalizing MLB teams equally. The Yankees and Red Sox can recover from bad decisions and remain competitive just about every year. Most teams can't.
Sure different teams win the World Series just about every year - but they are never small market teams (like the Colts, Steelers or Spurs) and big market teams rarely have 95 or 100 loss seasons (like the Pirates and Royals).
