Why should automakers supply different colors of cars, anyway? That's just more inventory and more paint suppliers to manage... If you're going all-out, let's just standardize cars on one color. Probably bright hazard orange would be good, so they all stand out--it's a safety feature!

Nah, the number and selection of teams you play is very much down to personal preference, how much money you want to spend, and what it's worth to you.

You can't disagree that the best version of the game is a full set of all the teams, can you? After all, that gives every consumer what they want, and more.

But you're not willing to supply that at a price people would willingly pay because the value for those extra teams, while it's positive for nearly every person looking to purchase, isn't worth the expense you'd need to charge to make selling the game worth it.

THAT is why there are different tiers, models, options packages, etc for cars. Different people have different preferences, and if you make them all buy the fully-loaded version, most of them will say "eh, I can't afford that and it's got a whole bunch of stuff I don't care about."

I think there is an old quote by Henry Ford. You can have any color you want as long as it's black

Funny you say 30 years.......don't forget in Back to the Future, they got flying cars from 1985 to 2015.  And hoverboards.  And deja vu.

To my credit, every college football boardgame I found out there released sets of teams, because only an idiot would make ANY team available........:57:

back in the 70's, when I was in jr high....... teachers proclaimed that the world's oil would be used up and we'd have to find alternate engines for our automobiles by the year 2000

Yup, I heard the same thing from O&G scientist specialist lecturers at Northwestern University in 1989.

listening to "experts" and believing the science

this is why I have some hope that a breakthrough can happen with existing or future energy sources and save the planet from the world's politicians

Wrong predictions doesn't mean anyone did anything incorrect.  All they had was their current data to go by.  You can make 100 prudent predictions based on here and now and be wrong every time.

correct, but it's also correct that we really aren't able to predict the future

and stating predictions as fact is dishonest and misleading

Who states predictions as fact (as opposed to those who don't)?

I don't think blaming the media is productive.  The media is a matador parrying with a mindless bull (the masses).  A matador goading the bull is what it does.  That's his job. 

The bull charging at it is a given. 

What if the masses weren't a mindless bull?  Anytime the media is to blame, I just want to get a big, fat mirror out.

This article outrages me.  Was that its intent?
This article is BS.  Consider the source.
This news channel is radically biased.  Then ignore it.

the media "could" be a very positive thing for the masses and even other educated groups

why give them a pass?  why just ignore them?  

if we'd be better ignoring them, why not shut them down?

As I've said before, as long as they're constructed as money-making enterprises, that will be their goal.  Once upon a time, you'd get more eyeballs by being the most accurate.
That time has passed.
Now that it has passed, I agree, something drastic must be done.

I simply suggest that if a private company wants to produce the news, they'll do it not-for-profit.  A block of time on their channel that is ad-free and ratings won't even be polled.  No ads on their news website, either.  

Ratings will be irrelevant, so yes, it may not only be a financial loss for that company, but could also be in vain. 
But in my world, that's what it would take for a company to be allowed to have the news. 

It should be an honor earned.

Back in the '70's, teachers scared the shit out of me, talking about the looming ice age.
