This guy has no business running a major league franchise.

All he's doing is pocketing the $20 million or so in profits (largely from revenue sharing) and running this franchise into the ground in spectacular fashion. He will probably try to get out of his lease at Kauffman Stadium and sell to the highest bidder 3-5 years from now.

If anyone questions the leadership of Glass or his son, they get thrown under the bus. How would you feel if you were the new GM and your owners were acting like petty 3rd graders revoking the media credentials of two radio beat reporters who actually were still treating the franchise seriously?

Not really.... Only difference is the KC owners can't call them into their office and ream them in private for not towing the company line lol

The Royals did these guys a favor. Now they won't have to waste any more time going to pressers for that pathetic excuse for a major league organization.

Fescoe and Moss have reputations for asking tough, confrontational questions of players and management of the Royals and Kansas City Chiefs, teams they cover on a full-time basis. Fescoe is also co-host of a sports talk show for three hours every weekday morning.

The Royals should take a page out of Dusty's, AI's, and Kobe's playbook. Have their child on their lap so reporters are timid enough not to ask tough questions.

Reporter: "Dusty, are you worried that your players-manager style has let the players run-amock of your clubhouse."
Dusty: "C'mon, dude. How could you ask a question like that in front of my young son."

The Glass family ran Wal-Mart. That explains their general contempt for the world.

That's a ****ing joke. When your team sucks, and you haven't won in two decades, tough questions should be asked. Asking tough questions should make people respect you. David Glass is now on my top five list of *******s in major league baseball.

It pisses me off that this is the expectation in this country. Far too often the press is blackballed from important events for asking tough questions. This is something that needs to stop. It's been going on for a while in every level of government in this country for 10+ years now, and now it's creeping into sports. Geez, how about some accountability from the people in charge!!!
