  2. I agree with Tksjewelry. The coaches not taking charge shows a lack of respect for the game, the anthem, the umpires, and each other. If coaches stepped up and did their jobs, this kind of crap would cease.
  3. ​That has got to be tied for dumbest post in forum history.
  4. ​It is extremely unethical to try to manipulate a strike zone in order to try to finish early. It can stay 9-0, or visitors can catch up. Why in the world would any umpire try to cheat a team out of a potential comeback like that? If working a full 7 innings is too much of a strain for an umpire, he should quit baseball and only work JV Tiddlywinks.
  5. Golly jeepers, I guess we is just some uneducated mo-rons around these parts, we undocumented sources. What a condescending ass.
  6. I know better than either of you two who Michael Taylor is, but nobody named either of you two a moderator. Ruleskeep is being cheeky by calling me, a Vietnam-era veteran and veteran sports official, "buddy," in a disrespectful manner, like he has earned that right. I have known Michael Taylor on Internet forums for years and years now, and still have NO idea what that has to do with disrespecting me, a long-time, well-respected umpire of 25 years. I am saddened by Michael's passing, and also voted for him in the Umpire of the Month contest, but I wasn't referring to HIS death when I posted. I was referring to the fact that nobody named either of you a moderator suddenly, so he should not determine what can be said or when a thread should be closed. Every point I made was a valid one, and the majority of the people in the thread agree with my stance on the issue in question.
  7. Somebody die and make you supermoderator? If you don't like the conversation, feel free to stay out of the thread. That comment has a whole lot more meaning with this crowd than you think, buddy. What are you jabbering about? Where do you get off calling me "buddy?" Is that how they're teaching being respectful to your elders these days?

  9. Ohhhhhh, that explains a great deal. You want to stifle the conversation when it gets a little rocky. Okay.
  10. SMH Still trying to see any "prejudices" here. I am willing to bet that UMP45, like myself, loves and adores women, and doesn't find them inferior in the least. You don't care if you sound condescending? That's awfully condescending of you.
  11. Maybe the baseball team needs a new parking lot...Fair is fair, and all...
  12. Thanks Alex. I actually meant to use a double negative there.
  13. I am quite sure that nobody here feels that both genders don't deserve the same educational opportunities. The story only spoke of the funds raised for the boys varsity baseball team. It did not address whether or not the girls raised any funds on their own for their own facility. It is up to them to raise private funds the same way it was up to the boys team.
  14. I think you mis-interpreted Matt's support of female athletes...I thought it was rather cleaver...reposted here No, I didn't miss it. But I did very well in my college logic class, and what he said was a fallacy. I thought UMP45's response was much more clever.
  15. I love how people think it's okay for females to have less simply because they have vaginas. This is the only sentence I have a problem with in the whole thread. This is just an asinine and illogical statement. It had absolutely nothing to do with the case at all, and I can't see as to how you arrived at this conclusion that anybody thinks females should have less. The fact remains that a) the softball supporters did not raise funds for their seating, and b) women's/girls' sports are not, and may never be, as popular as men's/boys' sports, and that is just a fact of life. The PGA and LPGA are one example of this. It has nothing to do with what organ is between whose legs.
