    I emphatically agree. There is some disconnect between what's expected of players and what's expected of fans. Cam Newton is correctly being hit for his sexism for embarrassing a female reporter, but fans on boards spew this crap all the time and get away with it. I'm fairly new here, but it did seem much like the exception to the rule until lately.

    It's also terrible that women make up a large percentage of actual, in-the-seats sports fans, and yet all sport Boards are heavily male dominant. My intelligent guess is that the major Patriot board is less than 1% female.

    I know Leon is Sale's binky but I would prefer Vasquez's bat.

    This team needs all the offense it can get.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    I sent an email to the UConn Office of Student Affairs suggesting that Thunder could benefit from education on gender issues (if the university can identify him).

    My two daughters in college encounter healthy and unhealthy gender attitudes on their campuses.

    Let me take cover before your fire off your responses.

    I'm not sure how to respond to this.

    For starters, the post and comments in question should not be taken seriously. As anybody who has been active on this site for the last week would know, the motif behind the material you find insensitive began in a game thread for the game on September 18, as a subtle reference that was manipulated by multiple other posters on this website. Once the Red Sox won that game, it became necessary for me to include that in every subsequent game thread that I started, since that is how the laws of "mojo" work. That win streak turned into a 7 game win streak, with the references become more and more obvious every day. Since that win streak is what earned me the right to create the game thread for Game 1 of the ALDS, a very prestigious honor, I thought it necessary to reintroduce the motif that you and a few others appear to find sexist.

    Anybody who knows me at all knows that these comments in all of these game threads cannot be farther from my own personal views and women, and gender roles in particular. I'm the shy guy afraid to talk to people. I'm the guy who walks around UConn every day vowing to myself to step in if I see a sexual assault imminent. I respect women fully and completely. I know it can be hard to see on the Internet, and I know it will be hard to believe based on what you read in the opening post of this thread. Most importantly, I respect your opinion as a cautious father of what I am sure are two very wonderful daughters. The behavior that many men impose on women in college is unacceptable in every sense of the word. Please understand that this is not who I am.

    You don't have to explain anything to anyone Thunder.

    Some people just have no humor and have to stick their beak in about everything.

    Lighten up, Francis! We're all friendly here and most of us are just bustin' his chops a bit about being a college kid and enjoying all the (consensual) benefits of it. In fact, IIRC, this started when Thunder talked about a couple of coeds coming onto HIM!

    I see Thunder as the victim here. We're just here to support him.
    Any owners who sign previously suspended PED abusers to a big $$ contract are as guilty of perpetuating the PED problem as are the players.

    Earlier I was going to say "Lighten up Clarence". Lol.

    So what was your real take on the "drunk college girls grinding on you during the first football game"?
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR
