Why lock it? Who's arguing? :-?

I don't care, but it seems silly to call for a lock when this thread was going to go away on it's own anyway.


I can just see where it's going. Half the posts are just people calling Schilling an arrogant prick, and the other half are talking about how it's a non-issue and Thorpe is a jackass for saying anything.
I just don't see anything positive coming from that, and you might as well lock it before any serious/angry arguments occur over something that happened 3 years ago and is still a sore spot for lots of Yankees fans.
Preventive measures, if you will.


IBTL ;-7

there...that should do it

The mods aren't puppets. They're not going to lock a thread because someone calls for it or posts IBTL. As a matter of fact, if nobody brought up locking, it would be halfway down the page by now.

The last post before mine was 2:09. That's like 10 posts down on a forum that has 50 posts per page.

Either way, this argument is 10x more pointless than anything else that was talked about, so I'm done.

My bad... 12 posts down out of 47. A quarter of the way down the page. I'm done too. :-b

There is absolutely no way that it was blood. I was under the impression that everyone knew that this was a PR hoax.

I was at the game, sitting really close and I could smell that it was ketchup.

I think it was either blood or a substance of a similar color.

That contradicts my theory. I thought it was blood or a substance of a different color.

Everybody knows that it was blood on the sock. This is nonsense. He has just offered 1 million to anyone who can prove that it wasn't blood.

Precisely my thinking. ;-D


Have you personally met Curt?

No, but I guess he could be a completely different person in his personal life than what he acts like in public. Therefore, I will say that I don't need a painted sock to know that Curt Schilling acts like a tool in public, despite not knowing whether he is or is not a tool in his personal life.

Satisfactory?
