I am going to have to call b******* on their analysis of broadcast teams. While I believe there is plenty of merit to their assertion that people watching NBA games want to hear a star or two in that booth, no one who watches NFL football gives two s**** whether somebody in that booth is a former star player. Don't get me wrong. It's a great when a capable former athlete can fill that role, but matchups make an NFL broadcast - not the broadcast team. As long as you have a capable crew in the booth no one cares who it is. It's only when that crew is bad that anyone takes notice.

Bill's idea about having 25 incredibly wealthy people be able to buy huge multimillion-dollar NBA playoff packages is brilliant. There's nothing that improves the image of a league more than to shout from the rooftops that the only people it is interested in allowing to attend its events must be extremely rich.
