Milwaukee Bucks poor attendance leads to $2m loss for arena


milwaukee-bucks-NBA-larry-drew

Poor Jabari Parker. He’s got to be part of a Milwaukee Bucks franchise that is a professional sports team in name only. Herb Kohl is lobbying hard to get a new arena, even playing the “if you don’t give us a new arena, we’ll leave for some other city that will” card. However, the good people of Brew town don’t seem to care so much about his threats. Or about attending Milwaukee Bucks games it seems.

Cutty DON’T CARE Award winners: Paramount, Nike, Bucks

Welcome to the August 1st, 2014 edition of “The Cuttys,” or the Jay Cutler DON’T CARE awards. They honor, as one Facebook commenter put it:

“all the non-news that’s fit to delete.”

Or more literally:  “all the terrible attempts at creating news, that I instantly deleted upon seeing it in my inbox.”

All media members receive dozens of press releases and story pitches from publicists, Sports Information Departments, Media Relations and PR people every week. These were the most utterly asinine and completely worthless among the 100-150 or so that I received per week.

And as always, in case you missed it, here’s how these awards got named.

Fired Bucks Coach Larry Drew breaks silence; thanks the city


milwaukee-bucks-NBA-larry-drew

Jason Kidd forced a coup with the Milwaukee Bucks that resulted in the dismissal of then incumbent Head Coach Larry Drew.
