stubhub is just an intermediary. they make transaction fees (15% on the seller and 10% on the buyer) and they do not directly profit on the increase in secondary market resale values... i.e., similar to a real estate broker.

There are so many negative nancies on the board. If the prices are too high, you're mad at DB, and if the prices are too low, you're still mad at DB.
I support my team regardless, and if that means I have to eat balogna sandwiches for a month instead of filet mignon in order to go to a few games, then that's the price I have to pay. Can we please have a moratorium on whining about ticket prices for at least a month? Jeez. Just enjoy your summer and relax... please.

I kind of feel like if you don't want other ppl calling you something, then you shouldn't call yourself that same thing.... It confuses the heck out of ppl.
I know there is a whole "own the word" movement... but honestly, it just confuses ppl.

Quick copy and paste summary for those who don't want to click the link to read.
"The USTPO applied a two-prong test to figure out if the marks were disparaging:
"a. What is the meaning of the matter in question, as it appears in the marks and as those marks are used in connection with the goods and services identified in the registrations?
b. Is the meaning of the marks one that may disparage Native Americans?"
The office easily concluded that “Redskin” was meant to mean “Native American” as the Washington Football team uses it. Putting an actual Native American on the helmet and having the band dance around like “wild injuns” in a Mark Twain novel probably sealed the deal on that.
The second prong is where the heart of the matter is:
"The question is only as to the second prong, whether the term is disparaging… In other words, respondent’s alleged honorable intent and manner of use of the term do not contribute to the determination of whether a substantial composite of the referenced group found REDSKINS to be a disparaging term in the context of respondent’s services during the time period 1967-1990, because the services have not removed the Native American meaning from the term and intent does not affect the second prong. If ti is found to be disparaging during the relevant time period, then the Trademark Act mandates removal from the register."
Ballgame. Once the office determines that the alleged “honorable intent” of Washington Football Club is irrelevant, then all it has to do is find that “redskin” is in fact offensive to Native Americans. And while the decision is 177 pages long, you shouldn’t need a bunch of expert testimony to figure that out. You could just listen to old-school Chris Rock, who once said “The Washington Redskins, that’s not nice. That’s a racial slur. That’s like having a basketball team named the New York Niggas.”
Rock cracked that joke in 1990, folks. A Quinn Emanuel associate made the case in 2009. Redskins has been obviously offensive for quite some time."

Link to a summary by a legal blog, but it's simplified so I assume that it should be easy for anyone to understand.

If Bacon's shtick is railing against branding, hyping the wow factor over the substance, and over-incorporating social media, then I think it's fair to point out the ironies of Bacon's constant self-promotion. I may as well mention that it's hard to take it seriously when one millionaire points at another millionaire and complains of their frothy compensation.

Funny that the guy who is whining about the focus on $$$ directs all the traffic to his own site and pitches his book at every turn.

Wolverine Devotee is our most honored member. Do not dare question his judgment!!
|6 weeks 5 days ago||This is the truth. New||
This is the truth. New students are young kids who are not indoctrinated in Michigan sports. They spend their time playing Candy Crush, sending snapchats and drinking. They don't sit around all day on MGoBlog worrying about the football team (except for Michigan Devotee). Therefore, when there is even the slightest negative stimulus, like a losing season or increasing prices or a weaker home schedule or cold weather or clouds or a hangover or a midterm or a chance to hook up with some hot mess than they are not going to attend the game.
Once the team starts winning again, the stands will be full again and all of these worries will evaporate like your next paycheck.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||No... you don't need a brain||
No... you don't need a brain to attend a game. Just a body to fill a seat. There are plenty of non-alums who attend the games so the diaspora of alums should only have a minimal effect.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||This is the truth! Most||
This is the truth!
Most students are new fans and don't feel a need to be there in the stands if the team is losing. Call them fair-weather, but they are just optimizing their free time. Drink and party with girls or watch a team lose; students are choosing the former. Bacon is right on the conclusion, but wrong on the primary cause - which is essentially that students have limited cash and time and they want to spend it on having fun, drinking and partying.

I got an idea... an MGoBlog GIF Library... There are so many great gifs... it would be so cool to have a library of sorts, searchable by tag names or whatnot. The kickstarter can pay for the hosting fees etc.

We also have the highest affinity for "Fantasy Sports"?
Well, I guess our board does play the imaginary game of "5-Star Wars"... it's like Pokemon, you got to collect them all.

I actually can't click through to your site at work... it's blocked. Maybe you can move things around so whatever content is causing the block is not necessarily on the front page... then maybe you can get a lot more hits.
