John = HAM? Relevant his job? Did he form his opinion by reading/watching news? Was him a fan of the team? An opponent? A player? A journalist? A sportsman? A coach? A dirigent? A libertarian? A republican? Relevant?

Did he think that the baseball team was voluntarily raising money specifically in favor of libertarians? Agains republicans? Was the team in fact raising money for libertarians? News relevant? Interviews? Pictures? Was a relevant libertarian a fan of the team? A founder? Had relationshio with the team?
Are slogans relevant? Speeches? Was there something in common between the team and libertarians?

Are the colors of the baseball team relevant? Is the baseball team actively playing a relevant tournament? Is the baseball team still active? Are the players? Did the baseball team raise money in favor of libertarians directly? By selling shirts/other items? Tickets? Making advertisement?

Are sponsors relevant? did he genuinely think that a specific baseball team was financing libertarians? Could it work with a football team? Other sports' teams? Did he form his opinion by watching a relevant match? Relevant matches? By following libertarians campaigns? Symbols relevant?

Are the colors of the baseball team relevant? No. Is the baseball team actively playing a relevant tournament? No. Is the baseball team still active? As in do they still exist? Yes. Are the players? When they played for the team, yes. Did the baseball team raise money in favor of libertarians directly? No, they didn't at all. See above. By selling shirts/other items? But John thought they were by selling jerseys. Tickets? No. Making advertisement? No.

Are sponsors relevant? No. did he genuinely think that a specific baseball team was financing libertarians? Yes. Could it work with a football team? Other sports' teams?

Stadium chorus relevant?

Did John look at the jerseys of the fans? Did the team change the jerseys? Are all the jerseys relevant? The one of the players? Of a player in particular? Was the name of the team printed on them? The name of the player? The number? Relevant? Relevant where the jerseys were sold? How they were sold (e.g. only credit card payment)? Are taxes relevant? Did he form his idea by looking at how the jerseys were sold? By listening at the chorus of the team's fans/ see some kind of oerformance of the fans (e.g. wave)?

By looking at some team performance before the match? Any of these relevant: capitalism? Elections? Free market? Nationalism/patriotism? Key principles of libertarians? People belonging to the party?

Stadium chorus relevant? Like singing Supporters section? Not in the slightest.

Did John look at the jerseys of the fans? Not relevantly. Did the team change the jerseys? They were wearing special jerseys, yes. Are all the jerseys relevant? Fans' jerseys aren't relevant in the slightest. As for the players'.... The one of the players? The players' jerseys themselves are only relevant in that they were being sold. Of a player in particular? No specific player is relevant. Was the name of the team printed on them? Yes, but irrelevant. The name of the player? I believe so, but also irrelevant. The number? Yes, but yet again irrelevant. Relevant? Not relevant. Relevant where the jerseys were sold? Yes. How they were sold In a way (e.g. only credit card payment)? But not in this sense. Are taxes relevant? No. Did he form his idea by looking at how the jerseys were sold? No. By listening at the chorus of the team's fans/ Not by listening to the fans, no. see some kind of oerformance of the fans (e.g. wave)? No.

By looking at some team performance before the match? Np Any of these relevant: capitalism? Elections? Free market? Nationalism/patriotism? Key principles of libertarians? One more basic than any of the ones you mentioned. People belonging to the party? No specific person, wouldn't even have to be the Libertarian Party for this to work, he just thought it was going to some group of libertarians.

Is the phrase "Don't tread on me" relevant? The image of a coiled snake that often goes along with it?

Is lack of government relevant? privatization?

Were jerseys sold inside the stadium? Just original shirts sold? Are they all sold with a receipt/ticket released? Was it forbidded to sold jerseys maybe outside of the stadium? Are flags relevant? Were there indications about where to buy the jerseys? Are they sold in a special place? Are they sold by people that went up and down the staircases? Were jerseys of both teams sold? Just of the home team? Relevant which were the teams?

Are jerseys sold differently with respect to other stadiums?

Were jerseys sold inside the stadium? Yes Just original shirts sold? What are you asking? Are they all sold with a receipt/ticket released? Irrelevant Was it forbidded to sold jerseys maybe outside of the stadium? I mean, they could resell it once they left if they wanted. Are flags relevant? No. Were there indications about where to buy the jerseys? Assume yes Are they sold in a special place? Probably a specific place, but irrelevant. Are they sold by people that went up and down the staircases? Probably not. Were jerseys of both teams sold? Just of the home team? Just the home team. Relevant which were the teams? Not particularly.

Are jerseys sold differently with respect to other stadiums? Not rleevantly.

HINT SINCE IT'S BEEN TO INACTIVE: The jerseys were being auctioned off for a specific, relevant, charity (which as established, is not libertarian-related but John thought it was.).

Did he notice someone relevant? Was he biased in his ideas by: the presence of a simbol? Of a famous person? Of the beneficiaries of the charity event? By the fact that charity was made through "auctions"? By some initiative proposed by Libertarian? (E.g. maybe he saw something similar made near where he lived made by libertarian?) By the fact that all was justified by charity reasons?
Relevant who were the beneficiaries of the charity auction? Poor people? People with diseases? People belonging to a minority? People that survived a tragedy? Aimed at the financing of something specifically (e.g. a Church? A wall?, a bridge?, water supplies?, food supplies?...something related to Libertarian?) Relevant which party was at the Governament at the period? Libertarian? Republican? Others? Is Libertarian propaganda relevant? Propaganda against the governament?

Did John understand that t-shirts were sold for charity? Did he believe so? Did he buy one? Were the t-shirts relevantly signed by players? Were t-shirts sold during the match? In the pauses? To all people present in stadium (e.g. someone at the microphome conducted relevantly the auction?)? Are prices of t shirts relevant?
People making offers relevant? If so, just fans? People belonging to a minority?

Are newspapers relevant? Are t-shirts wrapped in relevant newspapers? In a relevant box? Is some hidden involuntary propaganda noticed by him? (e.g. t shirts wrapped into newspapers in favor of Libertarians)

Were t shirts sold in a relevant place inside the stadium? Are Libertarian somehow connected to the team? Are advertisments relevant? (E.g. t shirts were sold in a place that covered republican advertising but not libertarian one?) Relevant when the t shirts were sold?

Were t shirts sold in a relevant place inside the stadium? The jerseys the players were wearing were being sold in the stadium. Where specifically isn't all that relevant, but it's relevant that they were being sold. Are Libertarian somehow connected to the team? Are advertisments relevant? (E.g. t shirts were sold in a place that covered republican advertising but not libertarian one?) Relevant when the t shirts were sold? During the game, no to rest.

Did he notice someone relevant? Svv of notice Was he biased in his ideas by: the presence of a simbol? Of a famous person? No to these Of the beneficiaries of the charity event? I think so, what do you mean by "biased"? By the fact that charity was made through "auctions"? No By some initiative proposed by Libertarian? (E.g. maybe he saw something similar made near where he lived made by libertarian?) By the fact that all was justified by charity reasons? No to these
Relevant who were the beneficiaries of the charity auction? YES! Poor people? No, or not specifically anyway. People with diseases? One specific disease. People belonging to a minority? People that survived a tragedy? Aimed at the financing of something specifically (e.g. a Church? A wall?, a bridge?, water supplies?, food supplies?...something related to Libertarian?) No ot not specifically to the rest of these. Relevant which party was at the Governament at the period? Libertarian? Republican? Others? No/irrelevant to al Is Libertarian propaganda relevant? Propaganda against the governament? I don't know if I'd call it "propaganda" but anti-government/libertarian speech is definitely relevant.

Did John understand that t-shirts were sold for charity? Did he believe so? He mistakenly believed it was going to a libetrtarian charity or some libertarian cause, but he was aware the money was going to be donated. Did he buy one? Irrelevant Were the t-shirts relevantly signed by players? Yes but irrelevant. Were t-shirts sold during the match? In the pauses? They were sold throughout most of the game until around the seventh inning, at a silent auction. This isn't all that relevant, though. To all people present in stadium (e.g. someone at the microphome conducted relevantly the auction?)? It was a silent auction. Are prices of t shirts relevant?
People making offers relevant? If so, just fans? People belonging to a minority? No or irrelevant to these.

MORE HINTS SINCE THIS IS DEAD:

A relevant word was mispronounced, also a pun is relevant.
