Apparently the Milwaukee Brewers owner feels that the Yankees don't want to play fair when it comes to revenue sharing.
From today's Daily News:
Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, seeking a “fair fight,” said high-revenue clubs like the Yankees should share more with the other teams.In other news, Attanasio supports the reincarnation of the Soviet Union.
“It’s always amusing to me to hear the Yankees, they can’t get into the playoffs with $200 million, and they say, ‘well, we’ve done enough,”’ Attanasio, the chief investment officer at money management firm TCW Group Inc., said in an interview with Bloomberg Radio’s “On the Ball” program that will air Saturday. “The advantages that you’re given in the bigger market teams - if they really wanted to have a fair fight they would do more revenue sharing, but I guess the obvious battle lines are drawn on that.”
Meanwhile, Hank Steinbrenner's thoughts on revenue sharing from Sept. 23:
“That’s a system I don’t particularly like. It’s a socialist system, and I don’t agree with it. Does it work? It depends on your point of view. But is it right? Is it even American? I’d argue no on both of those points.”That's one of the only times I'll agree with Hank.
