Sporting Community Up In Arms Over Personal Seat Licenses (PSLs)

Sportswriters around the country have discovered their disdain for having to prepay merely for the right to pay for something.

Oh, wait, it’s not PSLs; it’s paying for the privilege of negotiating with a player:

The Boston Red Sox can afford to and made the choice to pay $51 million just for the right to negotiate with a Japanese ballplayer. Sickening.

When the sports teams do it to loyal fans, it’s a creative revenue strategy. When agents do it to sports teams, it’s sickening.

I do see the subtle differences that make the moral equation opposite.
