I brought the cubs up as a case in point . They also have a hefty payroll, and had either the best or second best record in MLB. Also got SMOKED in the first round of the playoffs. My point being you can buy they best pony on the track doesn't mean he can run. But it's always the coaches fault, right? is it wrong to ask the players to perfom comesurate with their salaries? Joe Torre moved on an took a mediocre team with half the money invested as the Yanks, and almost made the playoffs. So is it really the coach?

This Is excactly what's wrong with our country. No matter how offensive the shirt is, he has the right given by our way of life to sell it. And buy the way it, seems to be making him alot of money. If he wasn't selling alot of the shirts he would'nt have them. So the talkm of shut this guy down is worthless. What about the larger issue of people who are buying the shirts? Now they don't have the right to wear a t-shirt. Since when did we adopt a dress code in the USA?Or acorrding to shotput everyone needs to take a baseball test to go buy a ticket. Since when does one grouyp get to decide how and when someone else sees a baseball game? People go to baseball games to party and have a good time , NOT ALLOWED! STAY OUT! Only people who really understand the game are allowed in. And keep your Damn kids quiet, I am trying to watch a ballgame! Where does this end ? There is always someone who is going to disagree with something. That is part of our fundamental freedoms as Americans. When we start locking up people because of what they say or beleive, we as Americans lose the most precious of rights, our freedom.

OK, just for arguments sake how do you prove you shot some guy in the butt with steroids. And he willing bent over and accepted the fact that it was steroids, knew it and took the shot. Unless there are some audio tapes of him accepting steroids haow does McNamee prove his client knew what he was getting? I mean you had Bonds at one point saying he got some stuff just walking by somebody locker and decided to take it. How does a multimillion dollar athlete come to that decision?
posted by volfire at 01:46 PM on January 08
Does anyone have any ideas or opinions as to why no one else on the list has come out and fought so vehemently in their own defense? Bonds also tried a defamation suit and lost, but never used the media to his advantage, like Clemens did. As I see it the only one standing to make a gain on this is good ole Jose Canseco, New book , new names, maybe new investigation? Just makin some hay, LOL.

posted by volfire at 03:36 PM on October 23
As a Chicago based sports fan this is a great move. Any die hard fan would'nt pass up tickets just because the game is on TV anyway. This just give the fans who can't make the game a chance to see their home team play. Let's go HAWKS!
posted by volfire at 03:29 PM on October 23
I say just cut the crap aside and lets get to the true future of sports, the death games. There are already combat fights that push that edge already. Hell turn it into a gambling home show like in the running man movie. Then they would at least have a common sense excuse for doping, " Hey man my life is on the line here". That would kill 2 birds with one stone. We could get rid of obnoxious parents looking to make fortunes on their kids backs, and kids might be deterred from taking steroids. The way it's all going now heroes are becoming harder to find.

O.K., so what's the excuse for last nite? They lost with there ace pitcher starting. They're choking already. Oh yeah I forgot Bartman, the curse, the goat, it's always something they're the C U B S !

All I have to say after reading all this is Thank GOD it wan't Mickey Mouse who signed that autograph! Why can't Red Sox fans be more like White Sox fans? Just get drunk and charge on the field with your kid and beat the snot out of the first base coach. Autographs? what the hell?

And I'm sure the Babe would stand in front of congress( unless their on vaction, or have more important things to do) and swear he NEVER drank,whored, or broke any other law. My point was to draw exception to our "hero's" today, many of which can't even speak the language of the game that they play. Who are our hero's now? Mcguire ,Bonds, Palmiero, Giambi, Sosa, how many more should we or can we question? If it was only beer that they were testing for I think we could consider ourselves lucky. Of course they only drank when it was'nt against the law. And they were not testing for beer in your system then either so that still works too!

Yeah, your'e right Weedy, now we will just argue about the records of the cheaters, who did and who didn't. Of course Babe Ruth was the biggest cheater of them all, he started all this. (Realizing the fact that he was not the only great baseball player, already noted)
posted by volfire at 03:00 PM on August 08
Great to get a post to remind us how the game was "really" played. To bad we can't have enough of these "Old Timers" telling these guys how they really look in the public eye. They obviously don't or won't listen to us. To much money, I guess>

I am not trying to put my VALUES on anyone or make that judgement for others. I had ,nor my ancestors, anything with the treaties and or actions, against the Indian Nations. Nor did I own ar have anything to do with slavery. Why am I now responsible? And if you write argumentitive commentary, are you not trying to pass on your values to others as well? Where and what is the difference?
posted by volfire at 07:41 PM on June 15
CLONES) if we left you alone what and where would you be? Would your arguments be stronger if NFL teams had no Indian head on their helmet? If you think America has forgoten your treaties and rights now, some 100 years later, what will become of you if you are not in our minds at all? Is that what you wish to erase all memory of you? Your books , articles and history will mean nothing if no one reads them. And for movies, no one is going to make a movies about someone or something that is not going to hold someones interest. It will be left to the Museums to keep your heritage alive, along with the cavemans.

1) If you want to put my face on your ass, then that's your problem , I won't sue, my wife won't even let me put it on her ass. 2) CHICO AND NEMO : get a life! This is the year 2006, we are not liv iving 100 years in the past or in the last century. Bringing up crap that is 100 years or even 50 years old holds no meaning unless your of that age. Not even in our court system, let it go.And as long as were on the lines of political correctness who gives a fuck what the Germans think. Not that I'M prejudiced because of my heritage mind you but, is this as simple as the world is going to get? Personally a British soccer team called the Blitzkrieg would be awsome. And I really don't think it would offend the Germans at all. They"ed probrably get a good laugh out of it! It's only in the US where we are still playing games, centuries old. The rest of the world has moved on, we have'nt. The brits, French , Italians don't give a rats ass what the Germans think or say, and that war is only over 50 years old. LET IT DIE and be at rest!
