GM For A Day Or Perhaps 6 Months ……………

GM For A Day Or Perhaps 6 Months ……………

If you were given the chance to either be a general manager or owner of a professional sports franchise . In what city and of the four major sports would you want to oversee ? Granted each of us are in awe of either basketball, football , baseball and hockey. Of the four major sports I’d opt out of hockey altogether ! It’s a badly ran sport that’s overseen by a hierarchy that shows about as much insight as a blind man left to fend for himself in the midst of a sandstorm .

Now the other three sports by themselves are in no way themselves a model of fiduciary responsibility . Commissioners David Stern , Bud Selig and Roger Goodell are not always the epitome of common sense but given the norms, ” it’s better the devil you know than the devil you don’t “! The one aspect of baseball that I don’t like is that the owners consciously act as if they’ve all the financial wisdom in the world but in essence the vast majority of them wouldn’t know a balance sheet from a baking sheet for that matter ! Considering the dire financial straits of more than 60 % of the teams , it’s hard to see how many of them are still surviving on bare bones , if that at all .

Los Angeles Lakers’ General Manager Mitch Kupchak takes questions from the convened press concerning the finalization of the signing of Kobe Bryant’s new “three year” contract extension with the team .

A good organizational structure from the executives on down tends to create success overall. It starts with having a good but practical general manager. And then he seeks to hire a damn good coach or manager whom he feels that he can not only get along with but someone who knows how to spot talent and nurture through the various stages. That if anything defines what a “really good coach” or “manager” is all about .

So here is my proposal to you all , who are of an interest in just creating a scenario. If you were given the opportunity to become a general manager of any professional sports franchise . Bear in mind that within certain sports you’re prohibited as to the how much you can spend in terms assembling “a team roster” . Who would be the manager you would hire and then in accordance with that coach or manager , who would “you desire” to build your franchise or team around ? Think cautiously about this, as there have been many examples across the sports panacea “where all the money in the world” hasn’t brought about success for a number of teams .

I look forward to reading each and every comment and I’ll do my utmost to answer each as succinctly as I possibly can .

  1. There’s absolutely no truth to the rumor that Limbaugh is now a season ticket-holder for the Redskins . But it’s been mentioned that he’s insured with GEICO and he keeps his Oxycodone next to his nightstand right next to his Cialis . I wonder what happens should he make a mistake there ? Which’d be more painful an erection lasting more than four hours or the the high from the Oxycontin ?

    Rush is seen here with his “lady friend Kathryn Rogers. Let’s hope that the oxycodone puts some lead in Rush’s pencil and that the Cialis eases the pain ! LOL,LOL,LOL, !!! If only life were that easy and simple , eh ?

    If anyone can answer me that question then you get today’s booby prize .

  2. Clearly these guys are in over their heads, but hey, that’s why they get paid the big bucks.

    I’ve had a similar idea that I’m working on over at the Chump.

    But it’s NBA playoffs. Let’s enjoy.

    1. Chris Humpherys

      There are GM’s and coaches around the NFL, NBA , NFL and NHL in over their heads ? What does that say about the guys in Congress and the Senate ? LOL,LOL,LOL !!!

      I can’t believe that Lamar doesn’t want to sleep with me but he goes off and gets married to Khloe Kardashian ! What’s that b_tch got that I haven’t got. My ‘va-jay-jay’ is just as good as hers ! “Dont worry Dyan. How’d you feel about having sex with a Mexican-American ? I’ll bring the burritos and tacos and you bring along that sweet smelling “va-jay-jay” of yours. I’ll take care of it ! George Lopez .

      Aah the NBA playoffs just like Dyan Cannon I’ll be taking center stage. But I won’t be be acting like a groupie !

      If Limbaugh does indeed become a Redskins’ season ticket holder and then goes to Fedex Field to watch the games does that entitle him to dress in a Klan outfit and then show his disdain for McNabb ?

      Is he as much as an ass here as he has always been ? McNabb has done more with less ! An idiot like Limbaugh is too dumb to realize that !
      And Stephen A has the temerity to defend this moron ?

  3. I’m not suggesting THEY cared, Al, although they probably did.

    I’m saying we, the fans, care more about sports than we do politics and THAT’S why GM’s and coaches get paid more than politicians.

    Last time I checked, ESPN gets higher ratings than C-Span.

    1. Chris Humpherys

      I tend to care a great deal more when the government has their hands in my pockets, my friends are returning home from either Afghanistan or Iraq in either boxes or as basket cases , all for the sake of a populace who view them in some cases as fag soldiers.

      Look guys, I bagged “this piece of a_s” so I’m not gay and never have been at all. I just liked to look at the pictures and read the stories that’s all ! Words to live by from Gov Charlie Crist (R-Fl) and his wife.

      Sports is meant to be just a recreation. It’s now a big multi billion dollar business. But I look at this way , many of the executives there are no different from the dumb ass politicians in “both legislative” houses up there in Washington as well as in Tallahassee ! By the way what has Charlie Crist done that warrants his ass being a Senator in Washington D.C ? He has been a pi_s poor governor and even worse Lt Governor and a “marginal attorney” at best !

  4. I would have to go with the New York Yankees as a General Manager. With those revnue streams even I couldn’t mess it up too badly and even if I did who cares.I would gladly take the big bucks that the Boss shells out to run those bums into the ground and happily stroll away with my golden parachute.

      I’m swayed between the Spurs and Yankees.

      In the case of the Spurs they’ve done everything with class and there’s not been a semblance of controversy along the way as they’ve attained success.
