Yeah. They deleted comments that were civil. Calling someone greedy and boring because they clearly are is not uncivil.

great idea!
let's try to get all the zero sum gamblers out of wall street and switch them into sports gambling!
at least then they won't wreck the economy any more!

isn't it the case that because there are so many more baseball games than football games, it's much less consequential for baseball players/teams to throw games than in football?
