Yes.....but imagine the uproar and controversy if one or more of the owners saying and positioning themselves against black ownership?

Yeah that's a possibility.  But I suspect more than 50% of the players are black. Maybe 75%.,

Don't the majority of NFL owners have to approve a new owner
While this is more sports than politics...  yes they do.

The real issue is the $$$   those 3 couldn't scrap up 1/10 of the "price" as it's projeced to be around 2-3 Billion.

I was just reading an article a few days ago (probably in Sports Illustrated) and they put the figure at 70%.

What a benefit of being an elected official.  I'm not aware of anywhere in the private sector that there is a benefits package as good as this one. 

And the Michigan taxpayers are paying for it...

this is money that could have gone to fix potholes ;) ;) ;)

The bad news I see here is that this study only went thru 2005 so there are an additional 13 years we don't have info on 'yet'!!!

They need to go back and find every responsible individual and sue them for their own 'pay to play' account.  Bill them about 10% interest since it was paid and until they finish paying the taxpayers back >:( >:( >:(

I'm going to start a thread on Clean Michigan.org.  I've signed the petition to enable it to be placed on the ballot for voters to decide.  They need 300,000 registered voters to sign to get the Board of Canvassers to put it on the ballot.

Of course all the sitting politicians are against it.  It would effectively end the legislative gravy train.

Worked 88 days last year and got paid for 365 and there is more, lots more...

Of course we pay their salaries..  Most are worthless anyway.

I signed the petition and garnered up 5 more signatures.
We need big change in Michigan.
And we need to stop voting for politicians that don't like each other.
They shouldn't be there to be a democrat or a republican. 
They are there to support the views and desires of the people that elected them

I signed one of those at the bridge walk too.  Not sure how long they're valid but I'll gladly sign another one!!!

I agree with you blue2 but I don't see it happening anytime in the near future.

It's time for a new People's Party...    someone that will stand up for the people rather than have their hand out to the lobbyists!

Well hurry up and get your thread going...

time is wasting. 

This looks like the proposal and group that Calley is backing.

https://cleanmigovt.org/

I've emailed them to see if they had petitions at the bridge walk.  I see several of the comments on their website are showing as 5 months old so that seems like it could take them back to Labor Day weekend.

If anyone wants to follow them on Twitter you can start here.

I see Zorn is following them.  That may not mean that he supports them but rather just that he is keeping an eye on developments.  I would like to hear his opinion on switching to part time!!!

Sorry, right now...

Zorn don't support them.  Not in his best interests as a career politician.  Don't ask how I know that, cannot divulge my source...

One important aspect of the CleanMi Government proposal is also limiting healthcare to the time in office and no more.

I don’t know of many jobs where maybe a really young person can work for a few years and earn a pension and lifetime health benefits
