But seriously, what was the point of all that? What was the point of poking at the embers? Does Jacobs have a bad case of the butt hurt that he felt the need to unleash on the players on Opening Day? If anything, those words came at least a week late. From NESN.com:   “Let me make this observation,” he said. “Nobody won, but more importantly, nobody lost at this point.” Yea, well, except for all the small and local businesses. And from ESPN.com: Jacobs, regarded as one of the most militant hard-line owners driving the lockout, appeared to blame the union for a deal not getting done sooner, saying it "should've and could've" been resolved quicker and characterized it as "disappointing." Of the union, Jacobs said: "There was no expression of a desire to make a deal."

"You'd really have to ask the other side on that," he said. Our official response to Jacobs:
