    OWS hates rich people and greed, and most of all, corporations.

    So....when will we see actors, athletes, movie companies and sports franchises get "occuppied".

    After all, they're all rich. They all pay low level employees almost dirt to nothing. They got their money from US buying tickets, CD's, videos, etc.

    Come on occupiers, be consistent. Occupy all the greedy rich people, not just the white ones wearing a tie.

    If an NFL player has a shitty season, he will pay the price in his next contract.

    That's what separates the NFL from the CEO of a financial firm:)

    What? An NFL "CEO" is the OWNER, not the player you dumbass. The NFL's CEO never gets fired for a bad season. The coaches and players do. See how that works?

    Nor do the concession and team merch prices go down, to reflect the team's poor showing.

    There's plenty of athletes that stink, and still have big contracts.

    Jamie Diamond never took a bailout, helped prevent more of a calamity. In the financial crisis, and has donated more to charity than all the protesters combined...Yet they still felt a need to protest outside his house.

    I did. And you're comparing a business CEO to a middle-manager in the NFL. Because the head coach, or team captain as a player, is a middle manager position in the structure of a pro team. They aren't the CEO/owner. Or operations manager. Or any of the front office people.

    You're making a poor correlation.

    So I ask, why isn't OWS protesting rich, greedy pro sports team owners? Or rich players who make millions a year, but pay their butlers, maids, ball boys, personal bodyguards, etc, shit and probably no insurance? Or the rap stars who are greedy? Or record executives who get rich off poor black rappers???

    It's because OWS doesn't hate rich people...................just rich white people who wear ties.

    That would come as quite a surprise to the accountants at JP Morgan-Chase who took 25B in TARP funds.
