Hicks sold the team because he went bankrupt. Right?

I think so. Something like that. I can't remember exactly off the top of my head, but I know he was in some sort of financial trouble.

Then go buy a Texas Ranger hat.

If I rooted for teams with the most talent, would I be here?    :roll:

It was on the way to writing off $100's of millions in debt. He's a POS for sure.

read on twitter that someone was blackmailing washington over his coke use too.

said he tried coke for the first time in his life at age 57. that's a little old to be experimenting, isn't it?

An employee of the Rangers, who apparently was leaving on less than friendly terms, tried to extract concessions from the Rangers in return for him pledging not to go to the press with the story.  They apparently balked at giving him a good letter of recommendation (showing some moral fortitude, at least) at which point he went to the press.

Seems to me that ought to qualify as blackmail.
