Yes. Yes, he is.

While your "man the ramparts" speech here is just terrific, it's also about 98% irrelevant. And the Pac-10 reference is the worst part of the irrelevant. Different sport,...

No, that was his 'subtle' attempt to zing you. Sort of along the lines of saying to someone "you're just doing this for a paycheck" or "it's about the kids, not you."

Well, maybe instead of expending so much energy on the legitimacy of the original EJ, you should be pursuing the idiotic post-EJ suspension rules that don't allow for multi-game tournament days. ...

Ozzy,

But that's the thing: from what I can remember of the story and some of the other commentary, this player was told more than once about the necklace, and yet came back out on the field. ...

My main thought was "man, that's old," since I'd already seen this article last year in the DP, and even participated in the forums. (I lived in W'burg last year, and umpired on the Southside.)

Maybe it's just semantics, but what I might say to said assignor is "I ejected him for not following an umpire directive." I get the point - nothing in the rule book says it can't be brought on the...

Well played, lawump. Both sports are excellent. I'd never be an Aussie Rules umpire, since I hate running so much.

Having been to several AFL matches, those guys have some serious stamina.

I believe Mr Senger commented the way he did because what you're asking is, in fact, no more germaine to the issue than when the AD asked. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I could offer the opinion...

Free speech being what it is, you can tell your pitcher anything you want.

However, that tactic will start a beanball war and/or get your F1 - and likely you, if the umpire knows** you ordered it...

Perhaps its the condescending tone, and the insults thrown with it - as in, labeling fellow umpires as insecure. In fact, that's probably it.



That's not what I asked.

I've had one, but it wasn't any defensive artistry or anything. In fact, I don't remember clearly the first two outs of the play now, even though it was just a year ago.

And with the attitude you're spewing out, there would be fewer and fewer games on your schedule as time goes by, so don't worry - you can remain a coach, now. Or a keyboard umpire. Or a fanboy.
