It is always important when buying someone off, which i get as the essence of this matter, to pay them with company cheques.

Wow, that is a lot of money to pay to keep someone from opposing your arena.

Orlando can afford a new arena for the Magic with all the money they pull in from tourism. I went to a game last year at TD Waterhouse (and will be there again in December to see LeBron James), and it's an awful place to see a game. Like Texas Stadium in Irving, which looks and smells like a urinal, that arena in Orlando is a stain on the league.

But we're open to per$ua$ion Hmmm, let's see now... $671,250 divided by 15,448 comes out to $43.45 each. Put my share into a fund to teach typing and English 101 to those of us who are challenged in those areas. OK, OK, put down the pitchforks and torches. I'm only kidding!!!

Sorry guys, count me out -- I've got all my money invested in the "Get Allen Iverson out of Philadelphia" campaign...
