"What is more important to you – winning or making money?"

Nutting: "There's no question with the Pittsburgh Pirates that one, they go together, and two that this team needs to win. But it fundamentally is good business for the team to win on the field as well."

That is a nice way to spin and avoid the question that money is more important

It's about time someone starting asking awesome questions like this. I love it when sport writers ask tough questions and put our management on the spot.

I also love it when our team never admits anything was done for financial reasons.

What is wrong with making moves for financial reasons? Other teams admit to doing it all the time. It only makes our team look worse by not admitting these things (like they have something to hide).

It's a loaded question: it presupposes that he can't do one without failing at the other. I wouldn't answer that question either.

He's a douche bag. So are a lot of sports team owners.

It does not presuppose a thing. It is a simple question with an obvious answer that he wont answer. Just admit that making a profit is the goal in any business. Nobody will find fault with that.

I'm not sure if that was intended at me of BH, but either way, it's a personal insult aimed at a fellow board member. Again, the mods on this board are quick to scold some posters for personal insults but look the other way when others offer personal insults.

I could care less if you insult me. I just hate the double standard. I know I'd get a pm warning I'd get if I called another poster a douche bag.

BH inferred that I was a weak fan. I am hurt. I am taking my ball and going home.

Do you know for sure Sisy didn't get a warning?

No, I don't know that.

I do know that many times when I've asked mods about the double standard or I've asked for a definition of the board's rules on personal insults and profanity, I've been ignored.

I'm pretty sure that his answer admits this, so if that's all you're looking for, I fail to see your problem with the answer.

Perhaps that's because it's easy to perceive that you're not asking these questions in good faith and instead are just trying to start trouble.

Sorry, but that's 100% not true.

I didn't insult anyone in particular, and I didn't intend to, but if you feel that the shoe fits, go ahead and wear it.

You admit that you don't know if I was warned, you admit that you really don't know what the Pirates are doing with their revenue sharing money, and you didn't know if I was trying to insult you or not, but it sure didn't stop you from expressing opinions on all three subjects.

You don't really know what they're doing with the revenue sharing money, either. I'm entitled to my opinion based on what I see, just as you are. This is a forum for, umh, expressing opinions.

Yep, you sure are, and I'm entitled to point out when you're talking out of your, uh, hat. Also, there is an old saying about opinions you might want to keep in mind.

My response is the exact same based on your opinion on the matter.
