Few things piss me off as much as spoiled sports stars acting like Jackasses. I'm glad to see this sort innane "I'm above the law" behavior has the Portland Trailblazer near bankruptcy. I hope other teams and sports learn that their players off field behavior can have dramatic affects on their bottomline. And to that end, I think teams should begin a practice of aggressively policing their players instead of sweeping things under the rug with apologetic press conferences and inconsequential fines. Either that or the courts need to stop letting them off with community service in the off season, but actually make them miss games.
Further, almost everyone here owns, has owned, or has used a laptop and has used it in a coffee house or a dinner, or anywhere else with free wifi. That could have be you harrassed and beaten till you lost conscienceness. All for using a laptop in public.
