Deadspin.com got a copy of the Florida Marlins financial statement. It showed basically their balance sheet: how much they made, and how much they paid out.
In effect, it showed that the owner has been distorting reality - oh woe is us, we're losing money! - and it goes to show that the owners of any sports franchise can't be trusted. Their books are closed, so you have to *trust them*. There's no accountability there.
Anyway, what did the Marlin's owner do? He immediately said that it was a criminal act to release that info and he wants the person responsible prosecuted! Now I don't know if its criminal or not, but its amazing how he simply wants to keep it a secret, and to be sure that the entirety of sports book-keeping remains that way.
Trust them. They know what they're doing. Now please give them a tax subsidy and buy their merchandise and tickets to their sport.
