Players have to be put in their place as well. They get no special treatment and are no "better" than the umps. If anything, they should be acting better than the umps. Umpires aren't typically viewed as role models by children, yet players are.
And only talking about the above statement with that, not anything to do with this particular situation.

Exactly. Bradley needs to lay on a leather couch and talk to someone with a degree on the wall. Guy's really screwed up in the head. Mr. tough guy needs to work out his issues and mature a bit.

Look at this single incident at face value.
True. He did do that. Then he went nuts. Why? Why can this child not behave like a rational adult when dealing with others? As you said: He called time, touched the bag, and everything just like he was supposed to. Why ruin that by acting like an idiot after that? Makes no sense.
DISCLAIMER: Again, so there's no misunderstanding, I have no clue if this is Bradley's fault or the umpire's fault. Not blaming either side, and don't care to debate it. Simply trying to figure out how Bradley still has a job when he acts like such a spoiled tough guy brat is all.
