Yeah I thought there would be a lot more specific info released. Didn't consider the fact that nothing can be said until the CBA is ratified. So I guess it's back to leaks on twitter!
Dumb. Just dumb. Waste
This press conference could have been reduced to 48 seconds.

I felt like Ralphie in A Christmas Story after he decoded the secret message.
"A crummy commercial? Son of a bitch!"
So McDonalds is giving them money, and they're giving Ronald McDonald House money, and then McDonalds is going to match the donation. That sounds like a tax shelter or money laundering scheme. Charity is awesome so it's all good, but the way everything was presented was just awkward. The best part was when a reporter asked if they thought the fans would be happier with concession discounts and free parking instead of charitable donations. Let's be real here: The partnership would have happened anyway, so the charitable donations would or should have been made regardless of needing to appease fans disenchanted by the lockout.
Perhaps there was an elephant in the room that brass wasn't expecting, but the mood was weird and nobody except the Fox guys looked happy to be there. Overall it just felt very unnecessary.
