Finally, don't have problem with the baseball talk but this is where it should be, one for football wouldn't hurt either.

What I have learned now about football....There is a Flag, team timeout or injury on every play in the NFL....and the quality of play on the field is going South....Its unwatchable...I was the biggest Cowboy fan on the planet when I was a kid

Color me confused -- that park must be smaller than I realized....I thought it odd when they announced the attendance as being in the 30,000+ range...didn't realize Progressive Field capacity is just over 35,000....no wonder they can't make any money.

That was probably the result of moving into Progressive field and having a few good teams. Municipal Stadium held twice as many people.

Teams make $$$ on TV contracts, which run in the multiple billions of dollars, concessions and team apparel, not attendance. Many baseball parks are half full; some are empty. The Marlins recently drew approx. 3500 to a game. The Yankees are in a pennant race and drew 30,000+ yesterday; stadium holds in excess 0f 50,000. Watching on TV, one can see plenty of empty seats in NFL stadiums as well. Nothing but blabber mouth announcers who drone on about drivel; commercials ad nauseum and complete hype by ex players who never stop talking.

I know that nef....it was just a surprise to me that a newer stadium had such low capacity.

I'm not sure what the structure is in MLB, but it's not the same as the NFL....On their own, I don't think the Tribe pulls in that much money as the big market teams.

Doesn't MLB now have a significant profit sharing plan in place? I was almost certain that the luxury tax money was divided amongst the "poorer" teams.+

Speaking only national TV contracts which in the case of the NFL is over $20 BILLION! Thaat's right; BILLION!! MLB TV contracts are in the BILLIONS as well. Otherwise, how could these players make the astronomical salaries they command?

Approx. 50,000 seats in " new " Yankee Stadium vs. 56,000 or so in the original. Cleveland Municipal Stadium held around 81,000.

Odell who? Marshall who? Always been over rated and with an attitude.The dynamic duo hath fizzled last nite! Eli who? NYG offense who? 8 straight under 20 points. Look worse, so far, than last year. Oh yeah. Mcadoo who?


Their offensive line looks horrible. That will make any quarterback look bad, and in turn, make receivers look bad too. It all starts in the trenches.

Yeah The Giants problem is their line, not the qb or receivers....

Eli has no time to send anyone down field, or have any run game success.... so the only successful play is the short quick 5 yard pass... And if anyone drops the ball.... looking at you Marshall..... you're done... which they have been

I watched Marshall start his career in Denver... he drops the easy ones but catches enough tough ones to make up for it. (Usually)

Well that's your loss, but I disagree.... This is a protest.... they've gotten a reaction out of you... you're not the only one boycotting The NFL.... if that's not change... if that isn't a catalyst, I'm not sure what is.

It also has just about everybody talking....

And if we're going to talk, let's talk about their message, shall we?

American citizens are being killed in the streets by the people who are supposed to serve and protect them.

There seems to be a trend of unarmed men of African decent.....

Racism still exists. That isn't me saying that every time a cop shoots and kills a black guy, that it was because of racism.... but even if it happens some times that's too much!

And The Police are protected... they're above the law. Literally get away with murder and manslaughter with slaps on the wrists....

But the conversation should also go to how we can help the police... racism isn't always the issue. A lot of the time it's stress.... cops get so wound up and see so much through the day, that it's no suprise that some times they lose their cool.... maybe a little more jumpy at a traffic stop because of god knows what happened at the domestic abuse call he was just at.... or whatever.... cops go through a lot....

Maybe they need more vacation time....

Regardless it got us talking about it all... that's how change happens. And so, if these issues eventually get taken care of.... if we can end racism, and police brutality problems in America... does that not do The Flag proud? The servicemen? Isn't that something we should all be fighting for? As Americans...

Well, let's....

Why is it that urban areas have high poverty rates among people of African decent?

MLK and the civil rights movement just happened in 60's.... before that, segregation was still a thing.... the high poverty and high crime... black on black violence.... the gangs.... crappy schools... all of it is a direct result of racism... slavery...segregation.

Generations upon generations of people stuck in poverty....

We have made steps... the opportunity is there for people to succeed, but that's easier said than done.

And a lot of these athletes come from those areas.... If they didn't play football, they could have just as easily been in the gang... or profiled as someone in a gang.... or shot and killed in the streets by a cop... or choked out....


Protest on their own time.... that's ridiculous. Protests aren't meant to be convenient... it's a protest!!!!

So I would guess you then also agree Black Lives Matter is a positive protest because they got people talking..?

Beating up older white ladies because they were standing to close to them, or lying in the streets so ambulances and other emergency vehicles couldn't pass. And then someone has the nerve to say hey "All Lives Matter" and they are called racist..........

Racism absolutely needs to end, period!

But a President saying "fire the SOB'S for kneeling" is NOT a racist comment. There were a couple of white players who took a knee during the National Anthem in the first game of the season as a protest for Kapernick.

Black Lives Matter never directed acts of violence to happen.... that's not the message....

Their name isn't saying black lives matter more than anyone....

But when countless unarmed men and kids are killed in the streets with excessive force by police officers who's job it is to serve and protect the community, and there is no justice served?

The message The State sends to the community is those lives don't matter.... so the group was formed in protest saying yes they DO matter! Those Black Lives Matter, and justice should be served.

Not the slap on the wrist paid leave get to keep their job and stay in the system that happens every time.... real justice.

And every time it happens the movement grows, and until changes happen the protests will continue. Hopefully peacefully....

You don't have all the facts. Black lives matter did incite violence, numerous times. Black lives matter did not allow ambulances and emergency vehicles to get to injured people, or allow them to bring them to a hospital. An organizer of Black lives matter was asked if they would allow other groups such as white lives or yellow lives or anyone like that to enter their protests, and the answer was no! She then continued to say in her mind this is only about black lives. Blacks kill more blacks than any other race against any other race. If black lives matter really cared about black lives they would start in Chicago.

And to say "countless" unarmed men and kids in the streets by cops is just so completely false!

Black on black crimes happening in Chicago gets back to poverty, and why those areas are mostly black in the first place.... it goes back to segregation and racism.... we're still dealing with the effects of our past.

Countless isn't the right word.... but I don't have the number off the top of my head.... All lives do matter.... but there seems to be a problem with unarmed black men being killed by police officers who use excessive force, then justice not being served for the cop's actions.

Because the question is does Trayvon Martin die if he was a white kid? Eric Garner, Mike Brown, and forgive me, the countless others.... because there are a bunch...

Rob Trayvon picked a fight with a loser that had a gun on him....Eric garner was a low life 43 yr old with over 30 arrests 6 children and no job...Loser...he resisted and made things worse.... Mike Borown wads guilty as hell in what happened there......Also Rob you are in NJ...what about Brendan Tevlin? That got NOTHING as far as coverage...and that was a good kid that was gonna make something of himself and be a productive member of society....What about the 5 cops in Dallas? what about the 2 cops in Brooklyn?

Trayvon Martin didn't pick a fight with anyone... he was walking and Zimmerman, Mr. neighborhood watch not a cop but wish I was profiled Trayvon and tried to chase Trayvon down.... so Trayvon put up a fight, and Zimmerman shot him

And because he is buddy buddy with the police force he gets away with it...

Garner was accused of selling loose cigarettes... he claimed he wasn't.... he wasn't being violent, but he wasn't being cooperative... either way excessive force was used in the form of a choke hold, and he was killed.... no justice...


Mike Brown was an unarmed guy who had his hands in the air and yelled don't shoot before he was shot dead and left there without medical attention.

Was he wrong? Yeah... he didn't have to die, though.

We can extend this conversation to other problems in the world... Let's talk about North Korea and terrorism... what about yellow lives, and cops getting killed on duty, and high poverty areas breeding crime.... but the fact that you and anyone else dismisses these cases is why they call themselves Black Lives Matter

They don't matter to you. To you they're losers..... and that's wrong

Mike Brown DID NOT have his arms up saying don't shoot. He fought the cop for his gun. 1 person said he was just standing there with his arms in the air and the cop just shot him, that guy later admitted that he wasn't even there to see what happened. This to me is part of the problem, the media gets a false narrative spread and people like you just believe what they say. You are right when you say they didn't have to die, but if they just comply chances are much greater they won't be shot. Every victim you mentioned is black, why do you not mention any of the white victims?? Because the media doesn't talk about that! Only when they can cry Racism.....It's actually disgusting!!

Rham Emanuel mayor of Chicago, Obamas old buddy said "never let a good tragedy go to waste" Thats exactly what these people do. For Obama to say "if I had a son, he would look just like trayvon" is as disgusting as it gets, using a tragedy like that for political gain!

More whites are killed each year by police officers than blacks..

Please name 3 like the victims you mention above. Trayvon wasn't killed by a cop.

Also some of the black people killed by officers, the officers were black. Unfortunately though, that doesn't fit the racism narrative!

Mike Brown was over 100 feet away from the officer when shot.... even if he punched the officer in the face, the cop's life was not at risk when he shot Brown dead. He didn't have to die.... arrested, sure... killed, nope.

We can talk about whites getting killed by cops too if you want.... I'm not sure of how many are unarmed, or profiled before stopped in the first place, but that's not what BLM is focusing their attention on...

As far as Trayvon goes, Zimmerman wasn't a cop, but he was friends with them enough and part of the system enough to call it nepotism. And it's that nepotism that is also a problem in our system... whether the cop is black or white or whatever, they're still held above the law, and it's not right.

It's no different than The Church protecting pedophile priests...

You should look up the report that was done on this case (Mike Brown) you will see it's much different than you think. He actually did punch the officer in the face and tried getting his gun. Walked away, the cop got out of his car told Mike Brown to stop. Mike Brown then stopped and proceeded to threaten the officer as he approached him. The officer told him to stop and get down a few times then shot Mike Brown in the leg first... Mike Brown then charged at the officer, the officer then continued firing. He wasn't over 100 feet away.

If you were assaulted by someone and that someone tried getting your gun, and then threatened you as they were walking towards you, you shoot them in the leg then they start running at you, Oh they are also about 6 inches taller than you and outweigh you by 60-70 pounds what are you going to do??

I've seen the reports.... I've never seen any autopsy say he was shot in the leg first... shot in the leg at all... he was shot in the right arm, that was on his head, and in the face.


Cops aren't trained to shoot in the leg... if they are to fire their weapon they are to shoot center mass, and shoot to kill..... and that's what the cop did.

The cop says he reached for his gun... you belive the cops story because he's a cop. Brown did punch him in the face... then he tried to get away.... he didn't try to kill the cop, he tried to get away.

Then the cop probably said freeze or I'll shoot... Mike Brown then turned around, and put his hands over his head... then the cop shot his ass....

If he tried to get away he would've been shot in the back.

He fought with the cop while the cop was still in his car!! Why?? why fight with a cop and assault the cop before he even gets out of his car? Makes no sense!

He NEVER placed his hands over his head! He NEVER said hands up don't shoot! That has been proven by the witness who claimed it, to later on say he wasn't even there.

The autopsy also proved by the angle of the shots that hit Brown, that Brown was running at the cop.....

Don't always blindly trust the media

If the NFL millionaires want to protest I have no problem with that. Why can't they just lock their arms in unity like some did? Why kneel disrespectfully, especially in front of military personnel who fight and risk their lives to give you that freedom? Some didn't even come out to the field but stayed in the locker room. You can protest without being disrespectful.

Black and White have died in battle, and they all come home in Red, White, and Blue! That should never be disrespected. IMO

Rob, you also stated police getting away with their crimes....

How about the beating Reginald Denny took when he was dragged out of his truck and beaten with bottles being smashed against his head, kicked, punched, and lastly had a fire extinguisher pummel his head three times. His head is still damaged to this day. They had all of his assailants on video, caught red handed....Yet, every single one of them got away with it.

Locking arms shows unity, and yes, it would be talked about in a much more positive way.

Kneeling is not protesting, its disrespecting!

Yeah, but it's NFL players protesting.... it's a part of the sport this year. If they can talk about it on espn, surely we can talk about here, no?


The thread had devoled way beyond that.



What about ESS or RSS or whatever that stat was that you made up.....is that banned too?


You're the only one that still talks about it?


We need to loosen you up....what happened to the Concust of years past....the Concust who would never turn down an opportunity to debate even the most minute things? Maybe we should sent the bat-signal out to Lucifer to shake things up around here

So mikey and rangerjunkie are conservatives. Rob is a liberal. Got it.

Rob, i wonder how many kneelers, i mean patriots went out monday and volunteered their time or money to "have a conversation" with politicians, lawmakers, police, schools to change all of these injustices happening in the country...?.?.? I would like to see these athletes put their money where their mouths are instead of alienating their fans who love and adore them for playing a game.

I love my sports, i have my opinions on my politics. I run a business myself. I dont put my politics in my customers faces every day to start conversations. Its not the place to do it. I wish these athletes would understand that as well. Why would they ever make a customer not want to watch/buy their product? It is idiotic. I could go on for hrs. Lets just hope the rangers stick to hockey, we all know they have enough problems on the ice to worry about...#18 cough cough.

Colin Kaepernick has donated over a million bucks... I'm sure other players will follow suit.

You may own a buisness, but if you started protesting at work, it wouldn't get national attention.... so there's a difference. He's using the little celebrity he has, and taking advatage of rolling cameras and live tv feeds....

Never intended to offend anyone.... that's not what it's about. He's taking a knee to honor Americans who have died in the street at the hands of those who's job it was to protect them, and their communities...

If people want to be offended, that's their problem.

Also the nugget that is never mentioned in the kaepernick "blackballing". That idiot used his player option to become a free agent. Believe he had 2 yrs and more than 30 million left on his deal. So in essence he quit, was not fired.

Remember when latrell sprewell turned down a 3 yr multi million dollar deal? Then never played again because nobody wanted him? Oh the injustice!

I wish marc staal had turned down his extension a cpl yrs ago!!

Just as well. He could probably be signed, but I'm not sure how much better of an option he is as a backup QB

It's kinda like Jagr.... he could play in the NHL, but likely he'd just be taking a roster spot from a kid.... and Kaepernick is no Jagr

Sooo, If people are offended "that's their problem".... So, for all the servicemen who have fought for and protected the freedom that these NFL privileged millionaires have, for them to be offended it's just their problem???

Sorry, but it's officially hockey season. Time to get this crap out of here.

Not to mention trashing the Midgets and Paper Planes will provide months of amusement.

In other news, who expected Bauer to throw a gem tonight. I thought this was the game the Prison Stripes had the best chance to win in the series.

Bauer has been lights out over last half of the season.

Should have been strike three, the ball hit the knob of the bat and into the glove of Sanchez. Ump says it hit him, slow motion replay shows it clearly hit the bat. Girardi sits on his hands and doesn't challenge. Bases loaded guy hits grand slam

No Yankee revival?


Any other right fielder and this series would be over. We're just that good....and we don't take lightly to being shut out.

So.....the game would have ended after that? nothing else would have happened for the rest of the game if Girardi challenged?

But what about the guys that didn't kneel and still got hurt?

Did they get their injuries cause some NFL players are kneeling? Just trying to follow the logic here.

I don't think so....winning that game took a lot of out them.....no surprise they get shutout in game 3. They lose game 2, they come back with a vengeance in game 3.

I think Kluber will be WAY on.

Francona made a mistake putting Bauer out on short rest. He should have let Tomlin start (even better, he should have kept Clevinger in the rotation).

Momentum doesn't count for anything either. The Indians were lifeless until the GS that never should've happened...MAYBE if Girardi challenged and it stayed 8-3 the Indians might have scored 6-12 more runs..It's possible, but not likely

Clevie lineup is not as bad as you make out.

If they lose this series, I put the blame squarely on Francona....he lost the world series exactly the same way....messing around with the pitching rotation. Bauer should never have pitched on short rest....he's never done well in that situation. Personally, I would have started Clevinger in Game 3.

In other news -- Saw this on sportsnet.ca (tell us how healthy the league really is, Bettman):

When the Carolina Hurricanes opened their 2017-18 campaign with an overtime victory against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday they did so in front of a sold-out crowd of 18,680 at PNC Arena.

On Tuesday, the Hurricanes’ second home game of the season had a different feel. This time the team lost to the Columbus Blue Jackets in overtime and the announced attendance at PNC Arena was a sparse 7,892.

Amazing what a mess the Giants have become...

DRC suspended for leaving the team..Like Rob said NO receivers, NO offensive line, defense nowhere like last year. Major changes will be made, I hope

Giants have gone full implosion... 4 weeks into the season. They were considered contenders heading into the season, now... they may very well end up in the basement. And we all thought the Jets would be the laughing stock of the year. They're 3-2! Two more wins and they'll match last year's total!

I grew up a Yankees fan, and admittedly haven't followed them very closely since they ran off a few WS wins in the late 90s. Saw a few games this year, and even though I wasn't really invested in the team, that game last night was a nail biter. I had forgotten how baseball can keep you on the edge of your seat in a completely different way than fast paced sports like hockey. Maybe it was just what was on the line, but man I was hanging on every pitch. That at-bat by Gardiner was a masterpiece.

Tribe strength was not that they were a powerhouse hitting team...they were more of a "timely" hitting team and they didn't rely on just one or two players....on any given day, anyone in the lineup could beat you.

Shutting down Gomez, Encarnacion and Ramirez certainly helped. Lindor was strangely quiet as well.

I still say Francona lost that series when he threw Bauer out there on short rest.

Yeah I wouldnt of used Bauer there either... I would of rolled the dice with him in G5 because he shut them down in G1 and Keep Kluber away since they got to him in G2

But he had possession when he hit the pylon, and when he hit the ground AND when he turned over to show he had the ball.

They ruled that he fumbled it before it crossed the plane and then went out of bounds before regaining possession which TECHNICALLY is a touchback but it looked to me on multiple replays that he has both hands on it before he hit the pylon. Plus they called it a TD on the field. I have no idea how they had enough "evidence" to overturn.

I thought they said the fumble occurred in the end zone. If it was a fumble before it crossed the plane, the Jets should have had the ball at the spot of the fumble.

A fumble can't occur in the end zone though, because once it crosses the plane it's a TD and a dead ball. No opportunity to be a live ball in the end zone and fumble.

You know, that's brings up an interesting question (although we remember that epic argument a few years back about this).

I'd like to hear everyone's opinion on this.....if you lose a game 1-0, did the other goalie "outplay" yours....and does the blame for the loss lay on your goalies head? Yes, I know there are other factors (amount of shots, quality of shots, etc.), but just wanted to hear some opinions.

It depends on the goal that's scored I guess. Also if you lose 1-0 and your team generated a below average number of shots, I'd point my finger at the players before the goalie. Games 6 and 7 and you couldn't muster a combined 50 shots?

No, a goalie's job is not to "outplay" the other goalie as they don't actually play against each other. A goalie's strategy changes minimally based on the score, his job is to stop as many pucks as he can regardless of how many he's stopped in the past, and how many goals his team has won. Depending on the score he may play certain 50/50 pucks more aggressively, but that's about it. Not going to make a huge difference. His only job is to stop pucks.

A 1-0 loss means your goalie played incredibly and kept your team in a game they otherwise should have lost by more. If your goalie holds them to 2 or under, he's done his job for the night. You can't expect more than that. Similarly, if your offense scores 3 or more, they've held up their end of the bargain and you start looking at bad goals, or bad defense, as the cause for the loss.

Watching the Devils tonight, you can see why they're near the top of the division and much improved from last year.

They play HARD. They play fast. And they play with an edge. They clear the front of their net, hit guys on defense, and stick up for each other. A guy like Zuc wouldn't have to take on 6'3" defensemen all by himself if he played for this year's Devils.

Not one legit "star" on their roster. Two Rangers castoffs (Boyle and Moore). Yet they are a team that nobody would want to play in the playoffs.

On another "pleasant" topic: is anyone else sick of all these harassment allegations that are coming out of the wood work? Just read article regarding latest one against Faulk, McNabb and 2 others.

This is getting beyond stupid.

Y E S !!!!!!

This is absolutely getting insane!

A woman can actually say they were sexually harassed with no proof, and the guys career is over! Tough to dig yourself out of that accusation, even if you're innocent

They've turned a revelation about scumbags like Weinstein and Lauer into a "movement". Now asking a woman for her phone number is the same as rape. Now everyone is guilty of sexual misconduct. Just like everyone is a racist, a homophobe, an islamaphoe, etc.

When everyone is guilty of something, nobody is. Which is a dangerous thing. Because eventually the REAL predators who do unspeakable things get away with it. Weinstein and Lauer should rot in prison. But because of this #MeToo "movement", they're lost in the crowd.

I wouldn't be surprised if Weinstein, who still has big money and lots of media connections, is behind this movement to minimize his situation. Funny, but I haven't read where he's getting indicted for his crimes.

An observation from tonight:

Taylor Hall took a knee on knee hit in the game against the Kings. All FOUR Devils went after the guy who threw the hit.

Oh, and the penalties handed out were coincidental minors, no PP for the Kings.

Kings also bumped Schneider. Devils reacted immediately as well.

****ing Passive Rangers would've looked the other way and done nothing. Maybe if Zuc was on the ice he would've done something, but at 5'8" he wouldn't be able to do much.

Oh, and NJD is winning 4 - 0.

These sexual abuse allegations aren't over someone asking for a phone number you morons!

Women have been dealing with a lot of straight abuse for a very long time. Constant ass grabbing.... habitual rude comments that cross the line of friendly flirting to knowingly making women feel uncomfortable.... on purpose.

You want your daughters growing up with that? Getting their asses grabbed by their boss?

We need to say as a society that it's unacceptable. Treat everybody with respect, especially women.

You can say, "wow you look absolutely beautiful today." You can ask for her phone number and get rejected

But when you cross the line of touching a woman without consent, or telling your secretary to bend over.... don't be surprised when you get harrassment charges on you because that's what it is

For the most part I agree with you, but PV is partially right too. Sometimes the allegations get really sketchy and it takes away from the actual victims. Like that woman who claimed assault because 90+ year old George Bush brushed her ass. The guy can barely sit upright in the wheel chair. Or there was another famous woman(forget who at the moment) who claimed harassment because a TSA agent asked for her phone number. That was her actual harassment claim. He asked for her number. I won't knock the movement, but it's not all legit and that minimizes actual victims.

Right so comaraderie.... Everyone sees a display of the guys on the ice getting all mad aboit the hit, but.... your guy still got hit.... you fighting someone isn't going to prevent the next hit from coming either.

It's not like LA was like, oh man these guys didn't like that, let's take it easy on them now....

Right people lie, and that's wrong.... but how is that the focus?

These allegations.... Matt Lauer... Kevin Spacey.... The Donald.... Mario Batali

It's always multiple accusers.

Maybe a couple of the 16 accusers against Trump.for example are stretching the truth.... but where there's smoke there's fire.

Just because one or some of the women are gold digging, doesn't mean the men being accused are innocent.

It's like, some of Michael Jackson's accuser could have been and probably were lying.... but somewhere along the line Michael touched one or some of those little boys....

Matt Lauer crossed a line somewhere.

And so, he and others are getting called out on it, and hopefully more men will be conscious of the fact that there could be consequences foe their actions down the road here

I agree with Rob. We need to as a society say sexual misconduct is unacceptable!

I suggest we find a famous couple to go from state to state and hold conferences on the dangers of sexual misconduct. Bill and Hillary Clinton!!

Maybe if the women the "multiple" women who claimed not just sexual misconduct but RAPE were believed, instead of destroyed by Bill, Hillary, and the media, maybe we would have more control of this situation!

And how far back can we dig?

Some of these women who have claims in now, say it happened 25 years ago!!

I'm so thankful that I'm not judged on some stupid stuff I may have said or done 25 years ago!! Like Paula Dean who used the "N" word 30 years ago, loses her sponsors and over a half of her income. When is enough enough?

This guy from Alabama, the senator who just lost. There is NO proof of misconduct, but he has been labeled a molester by the media, again with NO proof. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

By a Franken resigning he’s admitting guilt. Bill Clinton accused by multiple women “crickets chirping” until the joke of his impeachment. Didn’t hurt him one bit. To this day he walks around with multiple accusers and nothing is done, protected by his wife the enabler who laughed it all off as boys will be boys.
This crap about guilty until proven innocent in all walks of life has gotten everything out of control. It’s insane. I’m all for punishment when somebody is guilty but only then. It’s like Robitaille wife’s comments, so stupid and not even worth the ink. He flirted with her big deal. So much of this unsubstantiated he said she said crap out there you don’t know what to believe anymore and therein lies the future problem of turning numb to the legitimate claims.

Read my post again because you totally missed the point.

We don't need to say as a society that assaulting women is unacceptable, because IT ALREADY IS unacceptable. The scumbags who have done these things should rot in jail. Your outrage is nice, but where's your outrage over why no criminal charges have yet to be brought against Weinstein or Lauer?

Why don't you tell us why you think the Devils reacted the way they did? If according to you there's no purpose in defending Hall when he got hit knee on knee, then why did professional hockey players in the NHL react that way?

Simmonds sucker punched McD. Next time they played Mcilrath fought Simmonds. Now the fact that Simmonds sucker punched McD was still there, but it is also a fact that it didn't happen again.

The Rangers showed other teams that's not acceptable!

If you did something, and someone punched you in the face for doing it, are you going to do it again? Or if someone did something to a teammate of yours would you really not stand up for him? Would you really look the other way?

There was evidence of assault in the cases of Weinstein and Lauer. Allegedly there's also evidence regarding Spacey beyond just the accusations of women. But if rounding up several women to make accusations is enough to get a guy to lose his job or end up in jail, then you might as well get rid of half of the Bill of Rights.

Guilty until proven innocent? When did we start that system of justice?

There's evidence that Lauer committed rape in Sochi during the Olympics according to the head of NBC. There's also allegedly evidence that this was not an isolated incident. If so, then he should be given due process and prosecuted. This bull**** of trial in the court of public opinion and the Twitter-sphere needs to stop. Same for Weinstein. When will he be indicted and brought to trial? If these guys get to walk away from these charges without even an indictment, then this whole #MeToo fake outrage is bull****.

You lose your job because of the business aspect of it.

Who wants a guy who was accused by 6 women of sexual misconduct as the face of their company?? They say sex sells, but not that kind.

Stepping down from a job isn't the same as going to jail.

Now, if Matt Lauer was somehow found to be not guilty, he'll surely get his job back. But till then, there's no way him or Spacey... Mario Batali.... how are they suppose to be public figures with all of this?

They gotta step down...

Innocent or guilty has nothing to do with it when you're appearance or credibility is on the line as a business. NFL players have a constitutional right to kneel during the anthem but how many people want them fired at the very least? And if the NFL stood up to them from the first and demanded they stand they would have had to. But they started out supporting them so they have to find a way to compromise instead.
