we can laugh at them for spending more then they anticipated, but rest assured they'll weasel their way to a monster profit somehow. Like, massive tax cuts.

According to Forbes, they own 12% of TDAmeritrade. In 2015 Joe was worth 4.5 Billion. PTR is reportedly worth $900M himself, while todd is worth $3 billion. I have no idea how much the rest of them are worth.

I dislike so much that they own the Cubs. Their name is a slur.

Cowards. I’m sure they’ll fall back on the excuse last year that it was the least attended event and their “market research” showed fans wanted something different. Or whatever the hell those schmucks claimed.

This has to be a giant social experiment to see how quickly Cubs fans can hate the owners who brought them their much longed for World Series title.

Fortunately in this day and age this bit of compartmentalization is a snap. I have no problem loving the "Institution" of the Cubs and hating ownership.

They can handle seeing the fans when they win but once the going gets tough they hide.

What sacks of horsefeathers who were born into money. They’ve never had to work for anything their entire life.
