While the semaphore continues with increasingly shrill demands of “do deal now!”, as blogged here and here, and what some have argued is a carrot being offered.. there is also the hint, or two, of a stick of sorts.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
