The Malice In The Palace: What's the answer? Clearly the fans were chiefly culpable, and I for one would be disappointed if this didn't result in the cancellation and forfeiture of at least one Pistons home game.
NBA fantasy league?: I'm provisionally creating a Yahoo league with a live draft time of 1:30 p.m. EDT, Friday, October 22nd, and hoping that I'll be able to change that time.

Study: Aid for baseball stadiums unneeded.: While it's already common sense that huge public subsidies for team owners shouldn't pass the laugh test, two Dayton University economics professors have conducted a study concluding that they're not even necessary on their own terms -- the subsidies, not the economics professors -- because privately-funded facilities are perfectly capable of paying for themselves anyway. (Substitute any major sport for "baseball".)
