    In Response to Re: Wussball : I've never said anything about your posts before, because, I too believe, you should have the freedom to say what you want. But I also believe other posters should as well without the threat of being reported or banned by an overwhelming Yankee fans/friends majority. This is not about not liking Yankee fans because they have a different allegiance. This is about using that same excuse whenever one of them is abusive to posters here. If they are going to come to a rival team's forum, they should respect the posters here, and not tell posters what they're allowed to say about a rival team, and, most importantly, not try to make it into their own board -- or even a dual team board. It's not, nor should it be. Let's not forget they came all the way to Boston.com to post on a Sox board, and pretend they are shocked that posters like the Sox more than other teams. It doesn't help if they refuse to spend ANY time on their own team's board. And yes, my father is a Yankee fan, orginally from the Bronx, NY, to be precise. I believe he would, as would many other Yankee fans, be embarrassed by some of the Yankee fans that post here. Again, it has nothing to do with allegiance. They are individual people just like the Sox fans here, and should be judged as such. You're a very intelligent man. I don't think you are misunderstanding what I've said a million times already. So, I don't know why you're pretending not to get it, unless it's to support them no matter what they do or say here. JMO

    Kim, I'm not pretending anything. I'd think you know me enough to know this.
    I'm aware of the issues you've had with other NY posters. I can't control what goes on with that. I have my issues with some of the NY lice, as well as some RedSox posters. If it's not about allegiance, why make allegiance an issue? 
    You get along with Burrito/Pike. Should I criticize you or think less of you as a result?

    I went back and forth with Carnie several times on several threads about music, film, etc. I like Carnie. We have many similar interests. Same with Steve. I don't care who they root for. If it bothers others that we communicate as we do, we'll isolate it. I have no problem with that.

    In fact, I'd prefer not to discuss this subject matter on this thread.
    Let's go there on a thread dedicated to it. I don't think others appreciate it otherwise.

     Collisions at the plate are not allowed. If the ump and a player get into a dispute for more than 10 seconds, they must do a best-of-3 series of rock-paper-scissors. If the player wins, he is safe. If the ump wins, he is out. That is even if the player thinks he is out and the ump thinks he is safe.

    The national pastime shall be replaced with tiddley winks. All spectators must be seated at all times. If the game is played outdoors; they also need to wear a minimum of SP-15 sunblock, and none near the eyes or any other bodily cracks. No purchases of the sunblock outside of the premises is allowed. To that effect, upon facility entry spectators shall be frisked, shameful airport security style, by Tiddley wink Player A. Player B shall perform a sobriety test and shall make you forcibly sign a liability waiver form. There shall be no rainchecks. At the half way point in the season, there shall be no AS games. At the end of the season, every team makes the playoffs. For these games; the price of sunblock shall double. Any spectator that is lucky enough to catch a milestone tiddlewink shall have his/her hand bitten by the facility pit bull until the spectator lets the souvenir go, and be forced to make a prepared statement of joy and blessed fate to the press.

    Tidily winks is a board term. Like Wink

    A non-tidily wink involves Foot in mouth

    This could become a past-time, but I doubt a stadium will be necessary.

    This is getting deep...


    PS. How dare you converse with me! This is a public forum!!!

    Fans will wear helmets, masks, UV protected eye shields, throat and chest protectors, shin pads, steel-toed shoes, and cup or vaginal protectors to protect them from errant foul balls, refreshments, or other possible projectiles. Of course, to protect them from possible terrorists, all items will need to be rented at sanitized equipment stations throughout the ballparks. In addition to players not being allowed to throw balls into the stands, the fans will also be required to wear seat belts and not be allowed to unfasten them and leave their seats until the caution light is turned off on the Jumbotrons, which will be visable from all possible viewing angles.  This condition is temporary until monitors are installed at every seat.  Eventually, stadiums will upgrade so that transparent megaton-bomb proof protective barriers are installed around the perimeter of the field to protect the players, coaches, and umps from physical and emotion harm and needless interaction with the fans.

    Sherrif-Rojas maybe 2 or 3 times I would use such cute terms towards another poster. I still don't think I have ever used such harsh tones towards you before. As I am sure you won't lose any sleep over what I think about you lets just say your a dweeb.

    I am surprised you even have the time to post anymore, now that NY has updated its marriage laws I figured you to be busy applying for citizenship and looking for a wife.

    There shall be a harsh penalty for any fan that stands on tables or is unruly otherwise that sits in the 1st couple of rows of any elevated deck. In that case, the alien space ship from Monty Python and the Holy Grail shall swoop down, corral the offender, and be deposited to me and serve as my type copy boy for a week. This includes making coffee; and no, you have to buy your own.

    Fans will no longer be permitted to cheer, boo, or otherwise vocalize their thoughts and emotions.  Any violators will be supplied with muzzles-comfortable ones of course.  Fans will be able to vote in various 'fun polls' throughout the game from their seat devices.  This will include the cherished vote for 'player of the game' that is announced at the end of the seventh inning, as popularized on the Yankees' YES network.

    Fans will also be encouraged to participate in the special online 'stadium game thread' and various blog features available during the game.  Needless to say these will be family-friendly and strictly regulated for content.

    Fans will be actively encouraged to leave the stadium before game completion, to alleviate crowd congestion and traffic issues.  Incentives will be provided in the form of various discount coupons and trinkets.  The value of the incentives will be on a graduated scale based on the inning of departure.

    Tiddly winks shall be replaced by Bubble Blowing. All participants & spectators must be seated & wear goggles. In order to minimize performance degradation, the athletes can wear lightweight lightly tinted designer goggles; well out of the reach in cost to the populace. All sun-block rules from tiddley-winks apply. Spectators cannot blow as bubbles traverse their trajectory. Should a milestone bubble reach the crowd, spectators are not allowed to break bubbles. Bubble solution has been tagged via an emulsion based moving differential chemical algorithm, resulting in each bubble having it's own unique tag, for archival purposes as requested by the Bubble HOF. Due to the threat from the SpongeBob villain the Dirty Bubble, security check-in to the park has been made extra soapy.

    Re: Wussball

    MLB shall be revised to offset home field advantage. All ticket holders with reserved seats by the day before the game shall report for a tryout the morning of the game. The best 25 shall be selected. These selected fans shall be the players for the game. Age range is 14-60, M/F/H. (1 yr less than Nuxhall rookie yr, 1 yr more than Paige's last game).The MLB players shall sit in the stands and guard the upper decks. Any fan misbehaving shall get the cr-p beaten out of them, via a gauntlet of players listed on the Mitchell report or who have a record of similar or worse crimes. In order to improve the quality and flow of the game, all calls shall be determined by instant replay. In order to give the game an "old time" feel, there shall be no pitch count for the SP. If the SP hurts his or her arm as a result, they shall get a referral to a sports injury specialist that was fired by a MLB team; this likely means it shall be a former Mets physician. The team is not financially responsible for this service. If this game is the last game of the home stand, the selected players have to go on a road trip. Selected Players shall be reimbursed $50 for all plane fares (coach only), .50 cents per meal, and $2 per groupie encounter (M/F/H/A*/J*); they shall be responsible to cover the rest. Due to the horrible 1st pitch in Wash DC by Wizard's Point Guard John Wall a while back, no fans who happen to have played for the NBA can be selected for the team. Also, no one with a NY accent can be selected for the makeshift Red Sox, and visa versa.

    Note*: A is for Animal OR Alien, I'm guessing the reader can figure out J.

    You may be on to something here. Cyberspace input would muzzle vocalization and may in fact change home advantage. The huge message board could visualize fan reaction with thousands of smiley faces or frowns, depending on the situation.

    In some countries, fans don't applaud. They whistle. Silence could very well be the normal progression. Perhaps fans should get half their money back if they are dissatisfied with their team's effort...

    What a harmful global result; I didn't want to say anything; I guess you heard the stories of how some minorities were disenfranchised (i.e, "The Polls are closed; come back tommorrow"), and other tricks

    Of course the Dems historically are no saints either; when Joe Kennedy was privately asked what he thought of the close election in '60, he responded      

    "I didn't pay for a landslide".

    Real Food from the Concessions shall be replaced with cheap plastic lookalikes; at the same price. (It wasn't Real food to begin with.)

    Selected game dates shall revive the old Ladies Day event; except the target audience shall be dysfunctional sports bloggers; they could use some fresh air & sun. No proof is necessary.

    Bathroom use is not allowed without paying a one-time PSL fee for a reserved receptacle. This goes for powder rooms as well.

    A surcharge to the ticket shall be applied to all marriage proposals at the ballpark, plus a fee for the energy resource required to briefly display the lucky couple on the big scoreboard. No refunds if the proposer is turned down. The premium package includes a shaving cream pummeling from AJ Burnett. Optional: The fan can supply their own crust, or purchase it from the advanced ticket window.
