It is recency bias, but not the psychological case I had in mind. 

To @ArchAngel72 was saying I think the term sex trafficing headline is a bit of sensationalism. Nothing I have seen seems to be sex trafficing, more or less your generic John bust.

It appears to be true.  This site has pics of the 14 men and it looks like Mr. O'Nora.  He's being charged with soliciting a prostitute, not human trafficking though. 

I agree it's dumb, but I hate seeing lives destroyed over bad decisions.

Wow ...saw this last night.  He may lose his job, but then again, MLB has been known to give 2nd chances (Didn't he opt out of the 2020 season)?

Hopefully it is not what it appears. I saw this yesterday on FB as one of the others arrested is from my hometown. 

If it is what is alleged, I personally don't see a way for him to keep working for MLB. As far under the microscope as the umpires are this would just lead to a black eye every announcer at each of his games would be saying and Brian O'Nora, who was arrested in December...

SAD,  If it is true, their lives are screwed, no pun entended here.  Sex Offender's list for years to come.  People need to think twice, three times before doing this kind of activity.

Under Ohio law, he might not be registered as a sex offender, even if convicted on the charges he currently faces (which itself is highly doubtful—he'll plead out to misdemeanors without any possibility of hitting the registry).

But to Warren's point. This will be a passing talking point next season. Even if nothing comes of it. Every time his name is mentioned, someone will always think (or say) "he got popped December of 2020 for (enter charges here)."

We all remember Rob Drake popping off on Twitter because we are umpires. But it doesn't get brought up by anyone else because its just a passing thing. The situation with O'Nora is news. And will be unavoidable.

So just curious ( tosses a pebble in the pond )

 

How many of you still actually talk about Robert Kraft getting popped for using a rub n tug down in FL ?

 

 

Some do.

Not really comparable, because he's an owner and makes the decisions. MLB has no incentive to keep any individual umpire, let alone one that is in this situation. I also don't see the union defending this other than due process as required by the agreement.

I don't - nor will I talk about this man, but in my head that'll be the first thing I think of when I hear his name or see him for a long time most likely.  I forget the phenomenon, but its psychological for most of us to now associate him with this, unless we knew him or something odd about him that stands out even greater than this in our mind.   

And I wonder what is the most prevalent topic in the majority of men's minds?

Would that be Recency Bias? Or am I missing the name as well?

To your point. Every time I see Rob Drake on the field now. I first think about that ill conceived tweet. And now will be possibly the work plate job in recent memory to end the season in San Francisco last season.

Neither of which are good things.

Well I will admit when his name comes up its about 50/50 that I think about that incident. ( charges dropped by the way )

However  I am at the point where I do not care.

Let people do what they want to do as long as their will is for it. 

 

If she wanted to sell her service to him to make $$ to feed herself or ?? her kids.  What is that to me.  How does it effect how I live my life?

 

Now if she's a sex traffic'd person who has to do that because otherwise she will get killed or etc. then OK that is wrong, that needs to be stopped.. 

 

The act itself is not illegal everywhere there are some places here in the US even where its an honest way to make $. Who are we and why do we judge the rest?

      http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/20180411/parent-baseball-coaches-talked-of-beaning-daughter
      DURHAM, NH -- Police said they are looking into allegations made by a parent of a baseball player in the Oyster River Youth Association (ORYA), who claims two coaches conspired on a plan to injure his daughter in an attempt to intimidate her and force her to quit the league.
      Durham Deputy Police Chief Rene Kelly said the department is aware of the situation, but as of Tuesday had not decided whether to launch an investigation.
      In an email to ORYA board of directors Chair Ben Genes, Dan Klein, of Madbury, alleges that two coaches said they would instruct a player to “bean” Klein’s daughter -- strike her in the head with a baseball during practice -- in order to intimidate her into leaving the baseball program. The conversation allegedly took place during a draft meeting to assign players to team rosters. That meeting was held, according to Klein’s email, on March 21 at Libby’s Bar & Grill in Durham.
      According to Klein, his 11-year-old daughter is the only girl enrolled to play on a team in her division. He said in the email he was informed his daughter was the last player drafted.
      The email, dated April 7, was also sent to several members of the ORYA board of directors, the Madbury Select Board, Durham Town Council and Oyster River Cooperative School District Board, Lee town administrators, Durham Town Administrator Todd Selig and Durham Parks and Recreation Director Rachel Gasowski.
      Klein said he was made aware of the alleged conversation by two other coaches who also attended the draft meeting -- Troy Brisard and Kirk O’Quinn -- who found the discussion about Klein’s daughter to be inappropriate. Klein said O’Quinn agreed to put Klein’s daughter onto his roster.
      In a phone interview with Seacoast Media Group on Tuesday, Klein said he did not reach out to police, nor is he necessarily seeking any retribution against the accused coaches.
      “I’m not on the board -- it’s not my place to say what’s right for them,” Klein said. “I hope that this sort of thing doesn’t happen again, and that kids will be protected from this sort of language and be safe.”
      ORYA Director Matthew Glode said the association is conducting an investigation into the alleged comments.
      “In fairness to everyone involved, we have no further comment until the investigation is completed,” Glode said in an email.
      Klein said his daughter has played baseball and T-ball with ORYA since 2012 and has enjoyed it, mostly without incident. When she began playing, Klein said, she had several teammates who were girls, but that number dwindled over the years as many girls her age switched to softball.
      Klein said he has served ORYA in various capacities over the years, including as a coach. He said he is not now involved in ORYA in any capacity other than being the parent of a participant. In his email, he referenced a 2015 quarrel he said he had with an ORYA board member that may have led to lingering animosity, and as a result, motivated the alleged threats against his daughter last month.
      In a recent email chain forwarded to Seacoast Media Group, Genes wrote to Klein thanking him for coming forward with the complaint concerning his daughter.
      “ORYA will immediately address the incident in our baseball program and move to ensure our program is 100% compliant with our policies,” Genes wrote in the email, dated April 8. “I will contact Troy (Brisard) and Kirk (O’Quinn) to followup on the details referenced. Please let me know if you have any questions.”
      In an email to Selig dated April 9, Genes said that the ORYA board had already “taken specific action” related to Klein’s complaint, but it is not known what that action is and whether it is the investigation Glode said was underway.
      ″(Such) that all sports activities for his daughter are safe and welcoming,” Genes wrote. “We are now beginning a formal investigation into the incident as per our policies and procedures and will provide a summary followup to all our stakeholders.”
      Email messages left on Tuesday for Genes, Brisard and O’Quinn, seeking further comment were not returned. Their phone numbers were not immediately available.
