  1. Insurance null and void IF?

    My comment is as follows: Read the fine print
  2. unpire.org blocked as dangerous

    It's software that's designed to protect the user from attack by malicious outside software programs. But that's not important right now.
  3. Full brawl NYY vrs Detroit Tigers

    there is little more pathetic in sport than the long, half-hearted jog of bullpen players to a baseball slapfight/brawl.....I agree with above, anyone who leaves the bullpen at a minimum should be suspended.
  4. Softball vs Baseball

    From what VERY little I know about softball mechanics, it can be summarized as: whatever they do in baseball, do the opposite... I'm not convinced they're wrong about the move the head thing, though. No matter what, *something* is moving - either the head or the eyes. Is it better to have the head still and move the eyes, or to have a steady gaze with the eyes and move the head? I wouldn't be surprised if it's the latter, but doubt it's any worse.
  5. football-full time officials

    This is simply a bizarre response, which I don't understand in the slightest. What are you angry about? What point, exactly, are you trying to make? The only thing this reminds me of is....
  6. I agree with @udbrky
  7. Joe West suspended after calling Adrian Beltre 'biggest complainer' in MLB Thomas LottOmnisport Updated at 8:35 p.m. ET Joe West has been suspended for three games after calling Adrian Beltre the 'biggest' complainer in the game in a USA Today article. West, who recently umpired his 5,000th career game, opened up a lot about MLB but the statement that got him in trouble came when he was asked who the biggest complainer in MLB is. He answered matter-of-factly and succinctly with Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre. "It’s got to be Adrian Beltre. Every pitch you call that’s a strike, he says, “Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!’ I had a game with him recently and the pitch was right down the middle. He tells me, 'That ball is outside.’ "I told him, ‘You may be a great ballplayer, but you’re the worst umpire in the league. You stink."

    he got caught...that's what
  9. Darrin Sealey Resigns

    It's always (nearly) the guys that didn't do s@$# that do all the talking...

    Dude must have really pissed off some people to get a retired major general up in his business like this. What a loser....good riddance
  11. Coach demands Ref be removed... and she is.

    Officiating group that supplied the officials and ran the camp (headed up by Ed Rush, former NBA official) cuts ties with Adidas over this ugly incident: http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/20203049/officiating-group-terminating-relationship-adidas-replacement-female-referee but, let's not kid ourselves, there will be plenty of other officials rushing to fill the gap, selling their souls and prostrating themselves to Adidas....
  12. Do what ya gotta do, @VolUmp, but don't ever, EVER make fun of a base ump smitty taking out his plate brush and sweeping off the pitcher's plate. I mean, we're just talking different shades of groundskeeper at that point, amirite? What's the difference. By the way, they could use a bit more diamond dry behind the plate....you don't mind, of course, right?

    It just so happens that I'm in the market for a couple new sets of turf shoes...I know one brand which has removed itself from consideration.
