I've been reading ths website for a while. I remember a past write-up by Brett, that when attempting to analogize a poor influence on a team's organization, he referred to them as being a "cancer". Should anyone who's ever had cancer, or anyone who's had a loved one die from cancer, be offended for his "stupid remarks"?

How about when Brett talks about a team being "killed" by another team? Should anyone who's has a family member who was killed, be offended?

Enough with the false outrage. What the fuck happened to men?


How about real outrage about people who aren't outraged? Because you sound pretty upset about this ...

Obviously you haven't read anything about this incident. Multiple papers made a fuss over this incident, forcing Lou to publicly apologize in order to keep his job.

...

Should you have to publicly apologize for your "cancer" analogies?

This should have been a non-story.


That was my point: you keep making this about me when I never even expressed an opinion on what Lou said, or on what the reaction was to what he said.

Furthermore, Spencer - who now wishes to act like he doesn't think that this was a big deal - started a thread over this harmless incident, linking the article, writing that it was "self-explanatory".

Luke then draws a comparison between Ozzie Guillen's support for Fidel Castro, and what Lou said.

It didn't have to be about his Castro remarks. Ozzie has made many stupid statements.

I never stated that you expressed outrage. I simply used you as an example, in order to personalize things for the people on this site.

Your innocent statements aren't anymore/less offensive than Lou's. The man had to apologize in order to keep his job.

Name Ozzie's other ridiculous statement "as manager of the Marlins".

You have to leave this conversation, for trying to make that point.

I think your right. When it comes down to it under all that guile and hilarious wit, he is just a dick.

Read as sarcastically as possible.

Guillen's statement got him canned since he basically offended the large majority of the Marlins fan base. It could be safe to say that it is almost the same level as if a leader in a Jewish community said that Hitler wasn't such a bad guy and that he is misunderstood. That might seem like a reach, but one has to remember that Castro is probably viewed by some Cubans as the same level as Hitler, if not worse. I am getting this info off of the news reports when this whole thing happened.

Or, an owner of a baseball team saying that Hitler was on the right track, he just took it a little too far in the end.

I bet the owner who said that was a cunt; but won a World Series.

Did that actually happen? If so, who? I am curious about that. Was it the lady who owned the the Reds for a while when they were the "Machine"? Because I knew she said some crazy stuff.

And I bet her mother was a hamster and her father smelled of elderberries.

(It helps (if one reads them) to read some posts aloud with the French guard accent.)

Oh, man, if I didn't know you were serious, I'd give you major props for trolling the whole Message Board. Funny stuff.

To fill you in -- if you can stomach it -- read the entirety of the "Women in Baseball" thread.

Sorry, I didn't know about that. I felt stupid as I wrote it, but dammit, I pressed submit. Trust me, I am not a troll. ;) Thanks for filling me in.

Nah, you're all good, Cali. I know you're on the level. The innocence of your comment just struck me as funny.
