    If the manufacturer is a smaller business that is trying to create jobs and build a good business then yes it may cost more. But the larger companies are just trying to make more profits. But in the end yes they will push the cost up a bit to the consumer.

    For anyone curious Tencent owns 5% of acti-blizz, and does almost all of their publishing in China. This is a decision that I can assure you had almost nothing to do with Blizzard and came from higher up the food chain.

    So how do we get some weapons to the Hong Kong protesters? It's time to kick this revolution up a notch.

    We remove the Americans from Hong Kong, send the Celtics to play there and tell Turkey there will be a sighting of Enes?

    China looked the NBA in the eye, and saw Adam Silver. He flinched.
    The Owners, oops not permitted. The Governors need a commish with the stones to run a league in a still bad ass world.
