literally hating someone for being a fan of your rival team is retarded.

No question about it, really bad karma by Gomes, and it's such an outrageous and horrible thing to do that I almost don't believe the report. I get mad when fans cheer for injuries, guys who have to go out and play should know better and should support each other whether they're arch-rivals or not. I've lost a lot of respect for Johnny Gomes if this is true.


Meh. I like it when sports rivals hate each other, like the Red Sox and Yankees. Makes it seem more real. I hate what free agency has done to team rivalries... you get guys from arch-rival teams laughing with each other and sharing jokes, when their respective fans literally hate each other.


Hating each other is fine. Jubilantly celebrating a career derailment of another member of the fraternity of major league baseball is crossing a line I don't think very many players are confused about. It isn't just low class, it's no class. Cheering injuries is wrong pretty much no matter the circumstance. There's something called sportsmanship.

I misread the title and wondered why a wino flying back to St Louis was worth a thread......
.........maybe Sluggers escaped and they sent him back :-?


P.S.... Bertie for Red Sox 2012!

This. Would I be a hypocrite to wish Gomes to get thrown at the first time he meets the Cards?
