Magic Dodgers Deal!

Yes, it happened and even before the deadline. McCourt is gone! Magic Johnson, still is a popular figure in LA, and Kasten who has the necessary experience with ballclubs, and their Guggenheim Partners will hand over $ 2 billion to become owners of both the club, the stadium and 50% of the parking lots. McCourt is gone? No, that other 50% is his. Thankfully he won’t receive any money for parking on Dodger game days and he can’t do anything with his share without consent of Johnson and co. That’s a relief, but he’s still not entirely gone and that bugs me.

So we’ve seen all the news sites and the LA Times opens with “It’s showtime for Dodgers”. I’m willing to bet Magic, with Dodgers cap, will appear on the next issue of Sports Illustrated.

But enough about the US press, what about the press in my country? Did anyone pick up the news about this deal? You betcha! No big analyzing articles, but still. A selection of Dutch news sites:

De Volkskrant

NU.nl

Zie.nl (video with Dutch commentary)

NOS.nl

And even in some papers. I had to white out parts because of copyright issues, but it gives you an idea.
