08:15 AM ET 04.28 | Frank McCourt is not going quietly. McCourt expressed defiance and outrage during a news conference in New York on Wednesday after McCourt said Selig vetoed McCourt's agreed-upon deal with Fox for a regional sports network. McCourt said the deal would infuse the club with enough cash to be competitive on the field for the forseeable future. McCourt went so far as to describe Selig as "un-American" for what he sees as an attempt by Selig to unlawfully seize McCourt's property after MLB assumed control of the Dodgers last week. "No one handed me the Dodgers and no one is going to take it away from me," McCourt said. ... "I am not going anywhere. This is the team I love and the community I love. These are my hard-earned dollars I put into this franchise, and I am going to protect my rights, obviously."

He really should consult with co owner Jamie McCourt before shooting his mouth off.

A formerly great franchise. But you were right, California is a sad state.

It's his hard borrowed dollars. He borrowed all the money he used to buy the Ddogers. The reason he's so desparate to get the deal done with Fox is so he can borrow against it.
