    Harness will not be back here. He read the forum for ten minutes the other day and decided that it was beyond repair.

    I went to Germany a few years back for a design meeting and the company I was at had a refrigerator full of beer and wine in their break room.

    I was in a train station in Stuttgardt and the Germans were drinking beer with their breakfast.

    How about jobs where the job ends at 11:00 at night, and you're dripping with sweat, and maybe a little reticent to belly up to the local pub?

    Have you ever had a beer after a softball game or B-ball game?

    Yup, my company also had beer in the cafeteria in Germany.  My counterpart in London also had something light to drink at lunch everyday.

    surely you jest Joe! A beer after a softball game. We always had atleast 2 30 packs man. and the funny part is we had a couple of local cops and two troopers on our team...of course, this is strictly off the record.....

    Wrong. There are companies that do. Perhaps not on a daily basis, but there are a few companies that don't feel the need to babysit their employees.

    Posted by JimfromFlorida[/QUOTE]

    Haha.  What can I say.  But seriously Jim, I am not suggesting that the FO cannot make clubhouse edicts.  But, in this particular case, I believe it was uf utmost importance that the beer ban come from Bobby.  The front office can make rules.  But they cannot properly guage or affect clubhouse culture from their perch on high.  The manager is the one who can.  Myself, I loved Tito to the end, was devastated to see him go, but, can recognize that he lost the reins as far as the "clubhouse" goes.  Bobby was brought in to, among other things, shift this dynamic.  So, taking that decision-making away from him weakens his ability to do just that.  Also, if the edict had come down from on high in the midst of the shitestorm of October, there is no way it would not just add to the anger, mistrust, betrayal and confusion that was abound at that time.

    Burrito must think that every Internet forum that is moderated is controlled by Nazis. Burrito prefers anarchy in a forum. He would love to see ten more Babes and five more Georoms because he loves the back and forth between intelligent, reasonable posters and simpletons and obvious trolls. Burrito only cares about being entertained. He has admitted that.

    Francona's wrong.  Eighteen other clubs have banned alcohol.  Most companies do not allow or provide alcohol on company premises - someone gets drunk and gets into an accident, the company may be open to an expensive lawsuit.  Club premises are places of business where players ought to keep their focus on the job, not chilling out with a beer or two or six!

    Francona has already gone on to clarify his remark and acknowledge he has to be more careful with his Sox commentary.  non-issue.

    Valentine acknowledged that,"I think they probably asked [Francona] a question, that's what he said. If they had asked him longer, he probably would have said it was the right thing to do, too, but they probably dropped it at PR move, I would think.

    What's wrong with the FO doing some PR? One would expect that Georom would be overjoyed with the news that the SOLE REASON for the Red Sox collapse has been eliminated.
