    <--- crazy guy
    [/quote]Yes, you ARE the crazy guy, you think that 100% of tickets sold isnt a sellout
    [/quote]

    because 100% of the tickets actually weren't sold

    its a fictitious number they are basing it off of..

    there can only be one max capacity

    how is selling 19,000 tickets one night a sellout and then 18,000 tickets another night a sellout too in the same stadium???
    [/quote]BS!!!!

    You're acting like you're the one to create these numbers

    Max Capacity = 100%
    Over Capacity = 101% and up


    [/quote]

    explain to me how your sold out if u still have another 1000 tickets u can sell?
    [/quote]I dont know, ask the guy who created the stats

    Explain to me how 100% attendance ISNT selling out??? Cause if they had 1000 extra tickets to sell that wouldnt be a 100% sell out
    [/quote]

    because its based off of a number which is suppose to be max capacity, but obviously isn't...

    hence NOT sold out because at any given night those tickets COULD be sold

    you can't have a 10% range of being sold out. Its either sold out or it isn't....

    theres no degrees of being sold out.
    [/quote]It obviously would be based off of the max capacity, just cause it doesnt match your stance doesnt mean its not correct numbers or whatever you're arguing

    Sold out = more than 99.9%

    I dont understand how you're not seeing this
    [/quote]

    no, selling out means that you sell every seat in the house

    which obviously hasn't been done in these cases
    [/quote]Selling out means selling 100% of the tickets or being at 100% capacity

    Which has been done in 12 NHL cities and 6 NBA cities according to last years #'s
    Round1: AA-Ron Donald, DT, Pitt
    Round2: Kareem Martin, UNC, DE
    Round3: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
    Round4: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
    Round5: Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor
    Round5: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers

    i don't get how ur not understanding it either

    its confusing how u are suggesting that if a stadium has 1000 tickets left to sell it could still be sold out
    [/quote]I dont get where you're getting an extra 1000 tickets from

    100% of tickets sold = SELLOUT

    Im not sure if its ALL dollar stores, or just 'Dollar Tree' stores, but the Dollar Tree near me had a TON of them and they were at the registers.* Me and my 2 buddies bought 2 boxes worth and it felt like we were robbing them blind, we couldnt help but laugh HYSTERICALLY as we walked out the door

    mariusz pudzianowski came onto the worlds strongest man scene in the 2000's. He had a much different shape than the larger than life overweight(still very strong) other competitors. Mariusz won it all an unprecedented 5 times, while competing against men in excess of 100 lbs heavier than him. Also an mma guy and early powerlifter. This guy is the real deal. I'm glad I had opportunity to watch his rise and ultimate domination of the sport.

    [quote user="bigblue4417"]

    The Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Yankees are on the verge of completing a trade that would send right-hander A.J. Burnett to Pittsburgh and are expecting to take the proposal to the commissioner's office Friday for approval, sources said.</p>

    The Pirates are expected to send a pair of prospects to the Yankees, sources said. </p>

    The
    approval is needed because of the money involved, <u>as<font color="#0000FF"> the Yankees will
    eat about $20 million of the $33 million</font> still owed Burnett for the last
    two seasons of his contract, sources said.</u></p>


    As a Yankee the past three seasons, Burnett is 34-35 with a 4.79 ERA. He
    is 121-111 with a 4.10 ERA in 13 seasons with the Yankees, Blue Jays and Marlins. </p>

    As
    soon as the Burnett deal is done, the Yankees will begin the aggressive
    pursuit of a veteran designated hitter, sources said. </p>

    Sources said that there is a good deal of sentiment within the Yankees organization to go after Raul Ibanez
    -- who wants to play for the team -- to be their designated hitter
    against right-handers, partly because they believe he can give them some
    days of outfield play. </p>

    Although Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui are also available, they are generally regarded as unplayable defensively, sources said.</p>

    [quote user="JPizzack"]THANK GOD we are getting rid of Burnett! I'm glad we're even getting 2 prospects for him.
    I would take Damon back in a heartbeat as DH. Ibanez and Matsui, not a ****ing chance.

    Plus I read the other day that DAMONIC is dying to be back in pinstripes, and is upset talks havent started already lol.[/quote]i like johnny, i really do, but his average has never been that great. yanks need a hitter.

    Teams dont part ways with guys who have 310 batting averages....
    I dont know what you think youre going to get.
    You have 2 options: Young infield, and moving A-rod or Jeter...
    Or
    Aging vet with some pop who can still get it done....
