    • I’ll run this one in here since it seems to fit best:

      Bankruptcy judge approves deal between NBA and Bally Sports to finish season. Similar deal with NHL expected. MLB and Sinclair objecting to deal.

      I honestly wonder how long these leagues can continue to paper over the cracks with the jersey sponsorships, virtual ads, and gambling deals? Feels like the bottom is going to fall out eventually, at least for the small market teams.

          You guys are against investors buying houses and then flipping them to make a profit. Why not cars too?
          Yes. I have only a few qualms with these purchase agreements. Nothing major. I despise scalpers in all their forms.

          From what I've read, there are some potential issues with how Tesla wrote the agreement. But resale bans are perfectly legal and enforceable.

          It's the same with tickets to concerts that have your name printed on it and are matched with IDs. **** scalpers. **** resale. If you want to go to the concert, buy the ticket. If you just want to profit, do something productive instead of just being a parasite like a CEO.

              But the suit is to enforce that ban. I imagine if ticket king tried to pull some stunt they might get sued not necessarily for damages but to prevent the transaction from happening.

                Scalpers do pull stunts...and we aren't talking about an injuction we are talking about 50k bucks. It's just not the same thing.

                        • A MAGA tard on Twitter whined that the McChicken is $2 more than it was "like 2 years ago" and blamed Biden. About that:

                          -The current inflation rate is 3.24% in the U.S. 3 years ago it was 2.2%.
                          -3 years ago McDonald's profit margin was 25.9%. Today it is 34.6%.

                          Globally the IR is 6.9%, the EU 4.9%, Germany 3.8%, Norway 4%, UK 4.6%, 4.9% where I live, South Korea 3.8%, Japan 3%, etc., etc.

                          Also: https://home.treasury.gov/news/featu...l-context-2023

                          -The size of the U.S economy is now over 5 percent above its 2019 level

                          -Core inflation in the United States is now lower than in many major advanced economies

                          -The U.S. labor market recovery has been exceptionally strong
                          Not all G7 economies have fully recovered to their pre-pandemic size; by contrast, U.S. real GDP is now 5.4 percent above the level at the end of 2019.

                          Relative to pre-pandemic trends, economic output continues to fall short. However, the United States has performed better than other G7 economies (and the Euro area) with real GDP just 1.4 percent below trend.

                          The fast recovery in the United States reflects a more complete recovery in domestic consumption. In fact, U.S. household consumption expenditures returned to their pre-pandemic trend by the second quarter of 2021.
                          Faster output growth in the United States was initially accompanied by higher inflation, but inflation rates have been rising rapidly around the world. In Europe, inflation rates rose quickly in 2022 due to a combination of high natural gas prices and the restart of the European economy after tight Covid restrictions during the Delta and Omicron waves. Conversely, over the course of 2022, the United States saw substantial improvement in inflation, while European inflation rates continued to rise.
                          You can't fix stupid, including Chuck and Whalers.

                                This stinks more of stock schemes where they need you to hold so the investors can recoup their cash and pull out. Common crypto scam called a rug pull. Also what Wallstreetbets pulled on AMC and Gamestop.

                                If he wants to blackball I 100% get that...suing doesn't pass the smell test and you know it.
                                Look, I'm not going to defend Tesla. I think their product is crap and I wouldn't drive one of their cars if you gave it to me.

                                But there are two things about this restriction on this new truck that strike me.

                                First, this is not unusual at all in the car business if a manufacturer thinks there is going to be high demand and high resale demand. Ferrari has done it for years. With the Ford GT, a car I absolutely love, I remember they sued someone (John Cena, I think) for violating the resale restriction, which for the GT is quite a bit longer if I recall.

                                Second, I have always thought that these resale restrictions are at least in part a marketing/sales scheme by the manufacturer. Why not tell everyone that this car is going to be in such high demand that you're forbidden from re-selling it under threat of lawsuit. Wouldn't be surprised if the whole point of that restriction is to try to artificially increase demand.

                                I have a buddy who bought one of the Ford Lightning trucks with that restriction, and he was actually crowing about it, like it was some sort of badge of honor that his truck had that.
                                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
