Oh c'mon. This is not the same thing. This is not hazing.

There is a difference. This is not a close nit military platoon living together and putting their lives in each others hand making sure that their brothers in arms have the mettle and the balls to stand up under pressure.

This is not even a bunch of high school football assholes making the varsity sophmores carry their shoulder pads and then inviting them out to the field party like he's Mitch Kramer.

This is a gaping vagina of an "adult" who happens to be able to throw a hard round object 93 MPH deciding to intentionally throw that object at another man just embarking on his career. Why? Because he kid is good and the vagina man heard some stories about he kid's ego. Or something. And then hiding behind "old school baseball" as a justification for his assbaggery. Christ, they aren't even on the same team. This isn't good natured hazing to bring together a close nit group of infantrymen.

But a ton of baseball fans act like it was some kind of favor to the kid. Again because "old school."

It's ridiculous. And the thought that "it's always been done this way" is dubious at best and complete bullshit at worst. And I lean toward complete bullshit.

It's an excuse for Cole Hamels to act like an asshole and he took it.

Complete douche

Yeah. At the draft party nobody took me out back and held me down while I was sodomized with a broom handle after having to drink a whole punch bowl full of vodka mixed with urine that had big ice cubes with pieces of road kill in it.

What do I have to do to make you guys like me? Why can't I be part of the gang?

^THIS!^

A long time ago I was a 19 year old office clerk; one of my co-workers was a black dude. One day he shows up at my desk with a STACK of accordian-folded print-outs (yeah, that's how long ago this was) of Polish jokes. I shrugged, read them and laughed, then proceeded to change every "Polock" to "black guy". Dropped them off at HIS desk so he could have another chuckle. And life went on. Now a days one of us would get hit with a harassment charge. PC has turned lots of people into pantywaists.Image

Pitch Count. Hamel's simply was minimizing his by hitting Harper instead of walking him.

Again, who cares if he's an asshole? Albert Belle was the biggest asshole in the major leagues bar none back in the day. Remember the guy who threw baseballs at reporters, smashed things when he didn't do well, yelled at opposing managers, tried to run kids down with his SUV, stalked his ex-girlfriend by putting a GPS device in her car?

What has Harper done other than showing that's he's a bit immature at times in the minors? Hell, Belle was a alcoholic that had to change his name from Joey to Albert when he was in the minors.

Seriously. What is the issue with this kid other than he's got an ego bigger than most houses? I wish Matt LaPorta was as big of an asshole as Harper, and played half as hard.

I never saw John Randle or Chris Hovan confirmed as assholes because of eye black.

Tim Tebow is worshiped for the magical and mystical things he wears there.

Whatever I guess.

I think women with piercings anywhere but in their ears are whores. Hope that's not your wives, girlfriends or daughters ;-) ;) :wink: :hide:

When dude does something that harms another or his teammates I'll jump. Til he fucks up he gets the benefit of the doubt from me.

That too. :lmfao:

I wouldn't call Lawrie a douche for what he did. Stupid and overzealous maybe, as throwing the helmet anywhere near the ump he had to know was a bad idea.

But anyone of us who watched the Tribe game on Monday night and that "strike zone" can't be too mad at the kid.


Sweet. I bet his parents would say the same thing. ;-) ;) :wink:

Wonder if it'd be different had he thrown the helmet or bat and watched it bloody the lip of a kid in the stands.

Bottom line is if we're going to start threads about the assholes in professional sports (and make no mistake that Lawrie was an asshole for what he did last night) then we'll need to secure more bandwidth and potentially provide a separate forum.

The kick I get is as Lead Pipe noted: many of the people here coddled and slobbed the knob of a huge asshole was he was a 50/50 guy here or while his posse ran The Q and he was taking the Cavs to the NBA championship series in '07.

Then they have the balls and not the brains to bitch about Bryce Harper.

It's funny.

Wait, this is a real quote? People are upset about ESPN going nuts of a ridiculous 19 year old showing up in the MLB? I mean, for starters I thought ESPN didn't even realize that baseball existed outside of NYC and New England (at least according to these boards).... so comeez's entire statement is impossibly false.

Oh, this kid definitely plays for the Yankees.....he just wont make it up there until about 2015-2016. Imagine if Grady Sizemore had Harper's attitude.....you think he signs a team friendly extension?

I'm not pissed off Boo. I've started plenty of threads and made plenty of posts with a bit of trolling involved. It's good for the conversation.

There is truth that we overlook the.... umm... assholeishness of those who play where we live though. In a huge way. Anyone not believing that to be the case or be soing so subjective about a kid like Harper while pining for Albert and Kenny and Jose and Carlos is an idiot though. ;-) ;) :wink:

Kenny? Prone to over-self-confidence maybe, looking forward to getting paid (but who wouldn't?) leading to him getting traded ST '97. But I don't recall him being an asshole. He certainly gets (or, at least, retweets) a lot of love on twitter.

Kenny was a surly dude. Maybe not 'asshole' level but he was certainly a dick a good amount of time.

Apparently Harry Reid pulled out the same line during a presser today. What a tool. An unoriginal tool at that.

Bryce Harper and Chipper Jones are among the five players in the running for the final roster spot on the National League All-Star team. In a nice display of respect for a 19-year veteran like Jones, Harper told reporters that if he were to cast a vote, it would be for Chipper. Here’s his thoughtful reasoning:

“I think a Hall of Famer should be able to go to the All-Star game his last year. If I was going to vote, I’d go vote for Chip.”


What an asshole.

A condescending asshole at that. Chipper better be voted in anyway as a lifetime achievement selection.

He gets a +1 for that. Maybe he's realized he screwed up and is trying to be a cooler dude.

I should change this thread title to "Bryce Harper = Asshole(?)"

From http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/nat ... _blog.html -

"...19-year-old considers Washington “home” and wants to spend his entire career with the Nationals.

“You look at Cal Ripken. You look at Derek Jeter. You look at all the greats that played for one team their whole career,” Harper said last weekend, sitting in the dugout at Camden Yards in Baltimore. “I want to be like that. I’ve always wanted to be like that. I’ve always wanted to play with that same team.” ...."

--------------------------

Watching Harper now is what it must have been like to see Mantle in 1951 - Just watch him hang in versus lefties - the Tribe lefties could learn something - plays with joy & total effort - whoever started the As**ole thread should be ashamed - the guy is enjoying the city, fans, and teammates and the Nats are 15 games over .500 - a young and developing team fun to watch - actually much like the Tribe (though some fans apparently don't know what "developing" means with young players). Too bad someone like Choo couldn't give a quote like Harper. And, if the Nats can sign Werth for 7yrs $126 mil, signing Harper will not be too tough. They got til after 2017 to do it too.

Bookelly should be ashamed of himself for any number of things.

Well, to be fair to bookelly, I have never meant a 19-yr old that wasn't an asshole. and I put myself squarely in that camp. But relatively speaking, I can think of 100 bigger assholes in sports off the top of my head.

Actually, I'm quite the affable chap. I just thought this Harper kid was going about things the wrong way. I'm in the Lou Gehrig camp and not he Ty Cobb one. I may be mistaken about Bryce...but he sure looked like Cobb at the time the post was written.

Apologies to anyone I offended. And If I did offend you...yer the asshole.
