Tom Hicks no longer has any involvement with the Rangers

Aug 5, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

No Rangers fan wanted to go through all of the crap they’ve gone through over the past year, but if there is one thing that could almost make this process worthwhile, it’s this:

Tom Hicks will be removed completely from any ownership role within the
organization. Prior, Hicks was going to be given less than 1 percent
ownership equity with Greenberg/Ryan with the ceremonial title of
Chairman Emeritus. That has now all been stripped.

Yes, I realize that a mere 1% stake would not have allowed him to continue to screw up Rangers’ finances, but even a ceremonial role with the team would have made it difficult to parade him through the streets in an orgy of shame, place him backwards on the back of a donkey with a mardi gras mask on his head and send him out into the desert to an unknown fate.  Which is probably what should be done with him.

What? Don’t judge me. It’s a time-tested mode of punishment for those who engage in business shenanigans

    I think there’s one or two mercury mules left over from Blood Meridian if they need one.

    And there was much rejoicing.

    So now what to they do with him? Have him spin the Wheel Of Death (or whatever it was called) from “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”?

    Unfortunately he’ll still have way too much money.

    This man has Former President George W. Bush as , quite literally, a back fence neighbor. Granted, it’s still too far to walk from the house on a typical Dallas summer afternoon, but anyone with his track record of financial shenanigans should more appropriately reside under Interstate 45 in South Dallas…
