Sports & Politics This section is for all political sports talk. Regrettably we feel that in some instances there is no way to eliminate politics from football, basketball, and baseball hobbytalk. Do you pretend nothing is happening with the Warriors, Steelers, A's, etc? This section is for all political sports discussion. However, it is for civil discussion only. No insults aimed at members, political parties, or politicians will be tolerated. There is no warning. If you cannot be civil, you will lose your posting privileges on this site.

Doubtful. He was butt-hurt from death2, so imagine how he feels about everything else.

Well it "seems" you're wrong. Not offended at all.
There's a big difference between being offended and being amused.
In fact, I find snowflakes extremely amusing.
Still working on that post count I see.
And yes, I find that amusing as well.

Part of me thinks there might be a 1st Amendment violation with not allowing someone to bring in Chief Wahoo stuff. Man, I hope the Indians make a good run in the playoffs. Chief will be everywhere all season long.

It would be part of a personal conduct policy of sorts which people who buy a ticket would be agreeing to upon purchase. Iíll continue to casually wear Wahoo with the few items I have (just appears on the sleave of my jersey) but some people are going to go way over the top for attention.

As someone whose been a fan of the game since the late 80s but could careless about the Indians, it may be time to buy myself a Lofton Chief Wahoo

He's just trying to help me increase my post count. I'm trying to help him too. It's mutual respect. I do care about his backside. Snowflakes need people to care about them

How in any world are the Atlanta Braves offensive. You pick a team name that is something fierce and respected that you want your team to embody. If anything the Atlanta Braves are a compliment.

I'm glad it's gone. It was offensive and honestly idc what people try to say about the history of it. Times have changed and it was time for it to go.

You're referring to this logo, right?

Because they are an Atlanta team that always seems to come up short. Very offensive. Surprisingly the cityís only big championship was against the Indians. People rioted that year in anger.

I doubt I'll see 700 in three years.
We joined here pretty close to the same time.
I can't even begin to imagine having enough spare time to post over 4,000 times a year, but whatever.

I don't think they should stop there.

Make fans dress up in suits and ties and wide brim hats (sun protection you know) like the 1950s golden age of baseball. Ladies should only show skin at the ankles.

Make baseball great again....

No I'm, not a PBM and read most posts in baseball, football, box breaks, and OT/Ebay forums.
I just don't feel the need to post every single thing that pops into my head.
I'm a firm believer in quality over quantity. I'm an SP not a common.

Edit
Rock on dude, more power to you.
That's it for me today unless there's something important to post upon.
