Justice Dept. mulls antitrust probe of college football championships
I posted something about this in the college football thread. Justice Department loves getting into anti-trust projects. My company just went through one that started during the Bush regime and has finally settled. Loved seeing the suits in the office for 2 years pouring over company email and data. I think eventually there will be a playoff system but not sure of the legal issues on this personally.
Nothing says anti-American like "the current lack of a college football national championship playoff." Better fix that before anything else in this economy.
I love how the senator of the college teams ranked 13 and 23 in the polls brought this before the Obama administration. I'm sure had they been 1 and 2 there would have been no complaints.
As much as I don't like BCS polling system, this is just a ridiculous waste of taxes.
Agree. Though I could think of many things that are a ridiculous waste of taxes but that would send this thread into the PRSI sooner rather than later probably.
The BCS system should figure this problem out without the government getting involved.
While I agree with U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah and his premise that major college football should have an eight-game playoff, I don't think this issue warrants Justice Department attention... college football is fundamentally unfair to smaller schools. Agree also that we have larger problems than this to face as a nation....
Agreed, I hate the BCS but Congress should not be involved in college football.
Congress should be involved in as little as possible.
Ain't that the truth!
The Supreme Court will rule on this. Whichever college raises the most through corporate sponsorships is the national champion.
Sure, why not. Congress has demonstrated over and over again that they are far more willing to declare others have problems and move to fix them than to acknowledge their problems and fix those.
It is the same method used by dictatorships worldwide, if the people get restless give them a distraction, like the bogeyman overseas or a nice war.
Because the US government really doesn't have anything better to do .
Is this really not an onion post.
It's not just dictatorships,your own government is the recognised expert at this.
The British seem to have done pretty well at it as well.
Please note, I was implying that dictatorships and our Congress are the same thing.
Yes we have. As have most of the so called "democracies" that make up the Western world.
In the strict meaning of the word the U.S. is not a dictatorship,if you mean the system of government is such that voters have no way to change anything in a meaningful way then yes you could I suppose refer to a electoral dictatorship.
This action will probably get the senators who brought it up more votes then anything else.
No, a dictatorship is when we elect people he doesn't like, and a democracy is when we elect people he does.
Fail. Then again why should I expect better here.
Well, considering you get what you give, and you throw around pointless red flag words like "dictatorship" as simple abuse without explaining what you mean by them, you probably shouldn't.
I haven't liked a Congress since 98.
So then you're affirming my first conclusion?
Cry for you? The rest of us should get medals of honor for putting up with your garbage.
That much should be obvious by now.
