CDM vs. MLB

MLB and the other major sports' players associations should just be thankful that fantasy exists, and the DirectTV packages for baseball and football as well as satellite radio subscriptions are selling like crazy. Fantasy has been better for them that it will ever be for us, and there's no amount of marketing they could have done of their own product that would have been as ingenious as inventing an entirely new game that derives from it and that makes people 10 times the fanatic about the underlying sport than they already were. But instead of letting an organic thing continue to multiply and make them billions of dollars, they're so shortsighted as to try and nickel and dime the industry and inflate costs which will no doubt be passed on to our users, their fans - the same people who support them more than anyone else by buying Direct TV, XM Radio, etc. It's not just a legal issue - it's a matter of taste. Understand how this industry has been better for you than anything you could have done for yourself and back the hell off.
