Kuhn Dead

News Item: Former Commissioner Bowie Kuhn Dies at 80

Kuhn's time as commissioner(1969-1984) was a tumultuous one for the game, although really you could say that about everyone who's ever held the job. He's been accused of many bad things (racism, standing in the way of free agency, excessive drug enforcement), but then, he never sold out his fans by selling broadcast rights to DirecTV.
