So now Maurice is taking his illogical argument to the Supreme Court. This isn’t surprising, of course, but I don’t see how the justices will want to waste their time on a case like this, since national interests clearly aren’t involved. Honestly, we have seen no explanation as to why the plaintiff isn’t able to make a livelihood in some other profession. Clarett just wants the publicity, and the media, dogs that they are, are more than excited to give it to him. But getting back to the case, I think Clarett is in for a surprise if he thinks the justices will grant an emergency ruling allowing him to be in the draft. As far as I’m concerned, the courts have no business meddling in the private affairs of sports leagues. If they did, someone would’ve sued to eliminate the designated hitter rule from baseball years ago (because it isn’t applied uniformly). That is an issue that only baseball and its participants can decide.
Speaking of baseball, the Cubs had an impressive win tonight. The offense is really starting to click. Gosh, I can’t wait for hockey season to end so I can fully turn my attention to baseball, because this is looking to be a good season, even with Prior out until late May and Maddux’s shaky start.
