    We agree things should be taken case by case, which is what I try to do. Assuming every person accused of the same crime is more-or-less the same person is not something I subscribe to. Though I understand that way grouping people would take less critical thinking and therefore be easier.

    I know someone who was accused and convicted of murder who I'd much prefer my family be around opposed to plenty of people I know who have never been accused of any crimes.

    I'd go ahead and avoid both of those people. You do you.

    Everyone seems to assume that Phil will empty the wallet for the Blazers. I'm not so sure. He's passionate about Oregon. He wasn't a passionate Blazers fan when i knew his son. Now he may be getting involved to make sure the Blazers stay in Portland, and that's very admirable. He and Penny have done so much good in the community with their generosity. The other guy who owns part of the Dodgers scares me. He might be the type to try to move the team. I want owners who are passionate about keeping the Portland Trailblazers going forward in Portland. I have no idea how passionate Kolde is, but Jody seems all in, and has gotten a bad rap of late. Has she made mistakes in the past, sure. But if she didn't care about the team, she wouldn't be courtside rooting for the team. Wearing a Blazers jacket. I think she's more in than fans give her credit for.

    I think he would definitely "empty the wallet". He wouldn't buy this team just to compete he would buy the team to bring championships to Oregon. This dude would make the Rose Garden (which I think he would bring that name back) look a lot different. This guy would be one of the highest spending owners in the league because the teams that push their payroll deep into the tax have the flexibility to add superstars when they're available. If Phil Knight ends up owning this team he will do so with the intention of making a lot of noise. The idea that he would buy the team just to be another owner is a little ridiculous.

    The idea that you know why he would buy the team is even more ridiculous.

    I have far more confidence in Phil Knight than I have in Jody and Bert, especially with Vulcan in their ear...

    If you have to be on that yacht I bet someone will pay you more to be wearing something less revealing....

    Jody reminds me of Kate Brown and vice versa.

    They are roughly the same age - but I'm not sure I see other similarities?
