    Remy wasn't joking, and this after kissing up to him when Lowell was in the booth the night before.
    Lowell was with his kids. What is arrogant about that?
    Maybe the standing ovations Mike Lowell got in the last two days were more than little Jerry Remy could handle. Maybe his doctors need to upgrade his lithium.
    Remy and Mr. Pitchcount's act is wearing thin.
    What a two face!

    Yeah, but all that cheese would have a constipating effect.
    I'd pay to see Bill Lee in the booth.

    Hell, I'm already paying...

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Remy Calls Mike Lowell an arrogant athlete.. : Well, I can think of worse societies. If everybody said what they thought, this society would have disintegrated years ago. As a people, we find it tough enough to deal with the truth about ourselves. So, what does it say about deflecting this inability toward others? Furthermore, Remy is doing a job he's well-paid to do. And comments like that aren't exactly professional. Was he serious? Was he kidding? The fact he didn't acknowledge either says it all. Do you act this inappropriately at work? Enough to risk UR job?

    In this case, it's overblown. I hate to see people lose their jobs over "comments." We allow for freedom of speech, or that apparently is even on this forum something that we don't seem to allow for much anymore. We all tend to jump down the throats of media/athletes/sports execs, yet since blogging has joined the ranks of the social media as well as twitter/facebook, you better watch what your say or Big Brother will come down hard on you. And no Jerry Remy doesn't have to live up to your expectations in humanity, harness. We are not the brightest of people, humans, and we say stupid things. Hell, I say a lot of stupid things, but if you have to be afraid of your audience or be swallowed by public opinion, what's the point. Maybe we can have conversations like in the famous Simpsons Itchy and Scrathy episode when Marge convinces the show's sponsors that there was too much violence.

    Itchy: "Lemonade?"
    Scratchy: "Yes, please."

    ......boring.

    If our founding fathers didn't say anything, we'd still be under British rule. We'd have no country. Maybe they should kept their mouths shut, huh?

    danny, I was for Eck in the booth long before tonight. Remy is an icon, so I never mentioned it before.

    Yes, Remy does have to live up to acceptable expectation.
    That's part of his job description. Boston fans have come to know him.
    And he's attained personal wealth as a result of his "image".

    He'd never get away with half this stuff on a more restrictive format. Nor would he try. Media vehicles have pushed the limit ever since the radical 60's. And journalism has suffered as a result. I'm not for unreasonable censorship. I'm also against streaking in public sports events.

    Do you have a code (from UR job description) you must live by?
    Would you violate it if it meant standing up for your belief of uninhibited freedom of speech?

    Ah I see. Remy gets caught being a jerk and NOW ITS OKAY to say you really don't care for him.

    How come a year ago when I said Remy should be replaced it was called bashing?

    "How come a year ago when I said Remy should be replaced it was calledbashing?"

    Hmmm I can't recall that thread but IMO there's nothing wrong with arguing Remy should be replaced, not because he is a bad guy but because he has lost a step and Eck has come on strong. I'd like to see Eck in the booth, all due respect to Remy's contributions over the years.

    I missed it.

    I like Remy, but I like Eck better. I learn things from him.

    They are both just "good ole boys", we need to get Tommy harper and Jim Rice in the booth so softy's affirmative action plan is exemplified.

    Oh, I think folks around here are quite honest as to whom they dislike.

    Compared to other play-by-play announcers, Orsillo is one of the best IMO.
    But his dramatic calls on Jake recent dingers have been a bit much:)

    Re: Remy Calls Mike Lowell an arrogant athlete..

    As I've said before, I also think Mike Lowell shouldn't have been complaining about being in the line-up when he wasn't up to it. It's not an individual sport.  It's a team sport. You should do what's best for the team. I do realize that it's probably easier said than done, but he was in bad shape and he knew it. That was pretty arrogant.

    I also didn't like when he said he would never want to be a RS announcer because that would mean he would have to watch one team all the time. As a fan, I have no problem watching the Red Sox all the time. I guess I don't understand why a former Sox player would find watching the Sox boring. He said he just flips the channel to find the players he knows at bat. Doesn't really sound like a "baseball" fan. IMO  I just don't get him.

    And I'd also like to see Eck in the booth. I enjoyed it when he was there. I have a feeling that Bill Lee would be totally honest and hilarious, although the censoring of his comments (that I'm sure would take place) would be sad.

    Btw, for all those who are for freedom of speech, why don't we call a period of detente?  If you don't like someone's views on something or someone, debate them. Stop using bannings as a way of getting rid of posters and/or views that you disagree with -- or worse -- get rid of posters that a rival team's fans disagree with. FTR Real men can't be "needled" by posters on a message board.
