In response to ma6dragon9's comment:
Samsung admitted they planned, and helped Ortiz do this. Ortiz said, before the trip, he was going to take one. It was a total set-up.
To me, that makes the whole thing meaningless. It wasn't organic. It wasn't genuine.
I'm disappointed Ortiz took a TEAM moment to make some extra money, but not surprised.
I'm MORE disappointed that Samsung stooped to SUCH a low level to get some photo to t w a t out to the masses of illiteracy.
Yes, I have a problem that a corporation used an athlete to wrangle the PRESIDENT OF THE FKING COUNTRY into what amounts to a promotional photo.
At times like this, I like to imagine old-fashined KGB-types entering a glass and chrome highrise somewhere looking to speak to some pencil necked d o u c h e about a photo that shouldn't have been taken.
This country has turned into a joke. People defending this at all just falls in line with the society of idiocy it is turning in to.
Ortiz made a mistake. Was it egregious? No, it was just stupid. It's ok to say Ortiz did something dumb. Samsung, on the other hand...dd what businesses do, and why I will never support big business...they lie, cheat, steal, backstab and do WHATEVER NECCESSARY to make another buck. Fk them.
That's all well and good....if you were impartial. You've already made your dislike for Ortiz well known, so it doesn't matter what he does.....you'll find a way to rip him...just like his other haters.
If you...and the other haters, take the time to read the story correctly....Ortiz and Samsung had a deal and ideas Samsung encouraged Ortiz to take pictures. The selfie itself was not a set up, it was spur of the moment.
Paint me in whatever false colors you like.
You know, every time an anti-Ortiz thread start, it runs for 3+ pages every time. When Ortiz got his extension...less than 2 pages of congratulations, one of which was ME. So take your holier-than-tou nonsense and shove it DIRECTLY up you a s s.
Take your own advice...take the time to READ once in a while.
It was NOT spur of the moment you wool growning, grass chomping sheep.
Here's the PROOF:
Do you EVER fact check, or in your rush to powerwash Ortiz' ba ll s, do you miss all these INDISPUTABLE POINTS?
Through ALL of my negative comments about Ortiz, I've maintained I HATE his mouth, LOVE his play. My ONLY issues come from the selfish things he's said over the past 5+ years multiple times. I have PRAISED his ON THE FIELD PLAY almost as much, though admittedly less. Show me ONE TIME where I ripped him and didn't back it with facts and quotes FROM ORTIZ. I took you MOST RECENT POST to show how you just mindlessly defend him.
SO I suggest you read a little outside of what YOU write. Then, go find a mirror and reconsider this line: "That's all well and good....if you were impartial.", because one of us has shown a total ignorance of the facts available.
