Re: “Civility Now! Corey Lewandowski Ignites Free Speech Debate in Cleveland

Goebbels was in favor of free speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If youre really in favor of free speech, then youre in favor of freedom of speech for precisely the views you despise. Otherwise, youre not in favor of free speech.

Re: “At the All-Star break, a Conversation With Jason Kipnis on the Team's Struggles, His Struggles, and How They Can Get Back to the World Series

I agree about St. Louis being a hot baseball town. It was just one example. We're still 26th. though. I agree that Cleveland is a bandwagon town. This is an exciting team that made it to the World Series and is in 1st place. I would love to see higher attendance. I agree that people can watch on television, but they can do that in any city. I don't think the St. Louis economy is bustling all that hard. In St. Louis, people also have living expenses. But again, we're 26th. Our ranking has barely increased after making the World Series. Indians games are some cheap ass entertainment. I guess not compared to sitting at home, but as far as going out and paying for something, it's pretty cheap.

District tickets are always $13 and upper deck tickets are often $13 or sometimes less. District tickets come with $4 loaded value. Tickets can be found online even cheaper for the less desired games like on weeknights.

I don't see why you need to buy merchandise to go to an Indians game. I would guess the majority of the people that attend games do not buy merchandise every game.

One can bring any food they want into a game and even a bottle of water. You don't really have to drink beer, but if you really need to get your alcohol on to enjoy yourself, there are ways to get it in if you use your head a little bit.

Parking is among the cheapest I have seen. I have been to 20+ ballparks. There are shuttles from places like Great Lakes Brewery and $5 parking is easy to score, and even cheaper parking than that can be found.

In my opinion, like you said, Clevelanders are bandwagoners, and that is the issue. I don't buy the excuses. The Indians bend over backwards to try to accommodate all of the ridiculous excuses. Currently, the not spending money and bad team excuses don't work. It's not expensive to go to an Indians game. No one has money for games, but the more expensive playoff games always sell out. Hmm...

Re: “Husband and Father of Four Deported From Cleveland, Despite Community Efforts

I never knew that a petition could save someone if they break a law. Interesting strategy.

"Cleveland fans have held up their end of the bargain"

If this year's attendance is holding up the bargain, we're in trouble. Attendance is only good on a few select Friday and Saturday night games in mid-summer with fireworks and giveaways.

The Indians are 26/30 in MLB in attendance. That's pathetic for a team that was in the World Series last year. St. Louis, a smaller market, is averaging 7,000 more than the current capacity of Progressive Field.

Re: “City Will Introduce New Dirt Bike Legislative Package, Says it Will Prohibit Stunts

As most intelligent people know, the dirt bike track will not be used by these riders. There interest is not dirt bike riding. It is getting attention and terrorizing people, so they would have no reason to use the dirt bike track.

Djh,

In this case they would have probably pulled you over if you were white.
