Mismanagement & Professional Sports
Yesterday, the baseball world gasped as former MVP's and some sure-fire hall of fame players were named as users of HGH and steroids. The report, which cost around $20 million revealed a system of owners, commissioners and managers who knew about steroids but didn't do all that much to clean things up.
The New York Knicks, once the most valuable NBA franchise, are also getting press for their inattention to the actions of employees. Their coach, now convicted of sexual harassment of a former employee, continues to coach his team to a losing record. Still no action on the part of the team.
BNET has a solid piece on just how bad things have gotten with the Knicks. The Knicks and MLB give us a sad example of a new concept: antiproductivity.
