Straw Poll

From the excellent "The irredeemable Frank McCourt" by Jon Weisman at Dodger Thoughts:

Speculation is that the last straw for Selig was a reported $30 million personal loan that McCourt received from Fox that was believed to be necessary to meet the Dodgers' payroll obligations -- the latest indication of how fragile McCourt's financial underpinnings are.

From "Dodgers' status could remain in limbo for foreseeable future" by Bill Shaikin at the LA Times:

There was no last straw for Selig, according to the parties briefed on his decision. "It was an accumulation of everything," one of those parties said.

Which is it, guys?

Straw or no last straw?
No last straw! free polls

AMENDMENT: I was also intrigued by those Cougartown adverts a couple of years ago.
