Crane Kenney interview on The Score

Did anyone else listen to the Crane Kenney interview on The Score this morning? I turned it on while he was talking about the team leaving WGN radio and honestly found it very interesting. He spoke about the differences between Tribune and Ricketts ownership. What I found especially interesting was his talk of "creative accounting" between the media branches of the Tribune and the Cubs. The Cubs apparently pay a 40% tax to the league, and it was beneficial to keep money on the Media side vs the baseball. He also spoke on the happenings with the stadium, again in relation to the Tribune company. If anyone has this audio to post, I think this would make for a great front page article for BCB.

I did not used to care for Crane at all, but as I have heard him talk more and more I am beginning to develop some respect for him. He appears to be fairly genuine. I would like to see him stumble less with some of these announcements, but I can see why the Ricketts are keeping him around.
