Here at the Wages of Wins our analysts’ opinions are highly valued. Our resident General Manager and expert Sports Economist David Berri has been answering questions about the lockout and beauty all over the web.
- Dan Hamernash has discussed how beauty gets you paid. It turns out this is especially true for NFL quarterbacks! (Dave doesn’t appear in person but his name is very prominently displayed at the 1:26 mark)
- Dave also appeared on NPR to compare the NBA to the European Union of all things. Yes the lockout has forced us there!
- Dave explained how the owners desire to crush the players rather than take the win is the problem in the lockout. He equated it to the Packers-Vikings most recent outcome. I might have picked Lions-Broncos
- Patrick Minton backs up Dave’s claim that the owners decision to crush the players is bad backed up by behavioral research.
