Doing exactly what the article states. Cheating people from their money with questionable tickets..I believe you should be able to fight them, and either A: Get monetary damages or your attorney fee's paid by the state if you used one and you win the case..that will solve a lot of issues right there.

Doesnt matter- Right now its about the hot teams The other team in Los Angeles, the Lakers, recently signed a 20-year TV deal with Time Warner Cable reportedly worth $3 billion, making it the NBA’s richest local television deal in sports. So let’s say the Clippers get a new TV deal worth an extra $50 million per year in revenue and sell at the same EBITDA multiple the Milwaukee Bucks did earlier this year. That would put the valuation – without any factor for growth – at $997.6 million. How most places are getting a $2 billion dollar (or more) valuation for the Clippers: they could get an equity stake in the cable channel. That would allow them to generate a revenue stream on par with what the Lakers have owning the Staples Center and what Washington Wizards’ owner Ted Leonsis has with the Verizon Center. Just like: When it is based on one team it is typically a 50/50 split,” explains Lepore. “The Mets own about 65 percent of SNY, Time Warner owns 27 percent and Comcast 8 percent. The Yankees only own 20 percent of YES where 21st Century Fox owns 80 percent of that network.”

United States Begins Flying Stealth Bombers Over South Korea 567

skade88 writes "The New York Times is reporting that the United States has started flying B-2 stealth bomber runs over South Korea as a show of force to North Korea. The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."
