https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/28/gamestop-republicans-warn-of-trump-style-populist-revolution.html There are scores of similarities between former President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” movement and the GameStop surge. There is a sense of fighting back against disrespect of the elites, b...

People are dumb, they don't understand complicated things. They think complicated stuff is just the man screwing them. They are getting convinced that these stock bubbles is some sort of david / goliath thing. And you have choads like Barstool Sports guy telling them this story, and of course all th...

I also have no problem screwing the short sellers. I do think it's problematic how this train is seeming to focus on trying to get more people in on the charade though.

yeah, troy
I could also see Reddit having to pull the plug on the forum. If it provided a forum for investors to manipulate the market, I don't see how that is any different from a handful of large investment funds coordinating market activity.

It's defininitely market manipulation, but I have no idea how anyone could apply the current rules to this sort of clan of retail investors. But if I were one of those folks making a big bet early, I'd be expecting some investigators to come knocking

This gamestop thing is weird.

Is it some internet campaign to try and counter the short sellers or something? Seems like this wont end well.

How convenient.

Also interesting how all the people commenting on this have no clue what being an “informer” is. He is not ratting out other proud boys.

Because it's "dumb" that a minority of the body can use it to prevent anything they don't like from passing. I don't think we really need to recite the history of the filibuster in the 20th century to block the government from passing civil rights legislations. But, we can glorify our heroes like Ri...

If you're a democrat and "against" the filibuster, you should be "cancelled" or just criticized for exercising poor judgement. The filibuster is idiotic.

Also sounds like the players are very much against a delay. they see any shortening of the season as a way to cut pay.

IMO anyone ignoring the Superb Owl because of Brown/Bell is shortsighted. Bell is a nonfactor. Did anyone during the broadcast even mention him? Brown is a bad hombre, but is he bad enough an hombre to keep people from watching a Brady/Mahomes matchup? It is the biggest stage for sports in America,...

Not that this really has any bearing on anything, but if you're a WS or bust kind of fan, this is probably the time for a team to just tank for picks. I don't think any team is getting through the NL until this Dodgers' core is broken up, https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2021-zips-projections-los-angeles...

I feel bad for the marketing folks running the twitter account this season
They basically have Hayes. Cruz is the only high profile prospect that could conceivably get promoted to the majors this season, so they wont even have those "future" guys to sell MLB tickets.
