  1. his comments were dumb but they’re not the tremendous deal some have made them out to be. there’s nothing worse than sitting at a game listening to people talk the entire time about anything and everything except the game. his shopping comment was chauvinistic and he could have suggested another topic, but i say he only noticed them because they have 2 of the best seats in the house and spent the least amount of time taking advantage of those great seats.

    seems like a lot of outlets are trying to use dibble’s remarks to further their longstanding desire to have him yanked.

  2. In general, I agree with you. I think there’s a lot of faux outrage generating actual outrage by people who weren’t paying attention in the first place. A perfect storm of hurt feelings and self-esteem building.

    But he handled it terribly. The blog post he wrote never uses the word ‘sorry’. And his comments on-air blamed ‘toxic cyber space’ for misconstruing his words — as if he’s the victim.

  3. “Andy Reid makes a fan remove his McNabb jersey.”

    Did it smell like bacon?

    Was judge who sent his boys to jail named McNabb?

    That sounds awfully juvenile– even for a walrus.

  4. “Rob Dibble said some insensitive, unfunny things about women.”

    But your caption for Dibble is really hilarious, and I’m sure your women reader(s) are less offended by it than a joke about shopping.

    Let his statements be what they are…. a not so funny joke. Anyone who is offended or “outraged” should be donkey punched.

  5. Jamie: We need t-shirts for women to wear to a Nats home game that say “NOT talking about shopping.” I’d pay women behind home plate to wear those.

    I regularly talk to other women during Nats games–90% of the time about baseball (that game or another one in progress or the merits of various players), 5% about what we should eat or drink, 5% about the attractiveness of various players on the field, 0% about shopping.

  6. Shut up all you idiots. None of you are talking about baseball and it is sickening. You are on a freakin sports website and you are talking about me. What? Now you are offended about that? Pansies.

  7. eh, fat hogs.. OINK OINK OINK OINK OINK OINK!

    well, all sports going types are cursed with the i.q. that of arteriosclerosis.
