    • Who was KRod flipping off last night???

Maybe this has already been talked about, but I haven't seen it. In the bottom of the 10th last night, with Axford on the mound, the cameras cut to KRod sitting on the bench with an ugly snarl on his face and he had his hand placed very strategically so that his middle finger was holding up his head, with no other fingers being seen. The director cut away from it pretty quickly because obviously they saw what he was doing. I guess it's possible it was "just a coincidence", but I really don't think so.

So was he flipping off the camera, RR, Axford, or just the entire situation in which he's currently finding himself?

This prima donna is going to cause problems....and if he does, he needs to go.

Watch the video and tell me he isn't doing it on purpose.

I guess we'll see how this plays out. Doesn't look real good though does it. If he is in fact flipping off Axford, which it looks like to me, he should be traded for a third baseman or SS. But with this potentially ugly incident now public knowledge, they might not get what they want in return.

Wow, what the heck was he even thinking doing something like that. It sure does look like that's for Axford, and if it is, he needs to be dealt with and quickly. I really hope that's not the case however.

We might be making something out of nothing, but it was a significant gesture nonetheless and there isn't much publicity about from jsonline. This makes me think that this issue will be dealt with internally. Was RR asked about it by anyone?

I don't think it is a big deal honestly. I don't think it was even intentional. I for example, do the same thing sometimes. If I am leaning my head down on my hand I have put my finger up the bridge of my nose so I dont have a fist under my chin specifically. I also use my middle finger only to push buttons instead of my pointer finger. Granted I have had friends ask me if I was flipping them off when in reality I did not even realize I was doing it. Just saying, it may just be habit like me.

Given the situation AND the look on his face, I have no doubt at all that this was deliberate. None.

So would it be better if he was flipping off Axford or just the camera??

It just looked like the exact same face I make when i "zone-out". He might have just been thinking about his pitching or the situation or focused on a girl in the stands. There really is no way to tell. But if it were me in that situation, I could totally see myself do that exact same thing. Done it before lol.

KRod upset the whole clubhouse and it lead to getting blanked last night. Clubhouse cancer.

He has really long fingers, I bet when he wipes he can touch his small intestine.

but seriously you just hope its not an issue but if he's flipping off his teammates after blowing saves I'm not sure how well that will sit in a clubhouse

Who knows what he was doing. I honestly thought he was just propping up his glasses and didn't realize what gesture he was making.

I am pretty sure though this is a lot of hubbub over nothing, though.

The guy thay started this thread isn't even a real fan. What <bullshit journalism.
It's funny when trolls from other teams take this board seriously, but when a newspaper takes us seriously? Shit.

Don't worry, you will fit in much better on this board as a fake fan. We are all fake fans.

Fake fan or not, you're an idiot...and your idiotic thread made it into a NY newspaper making Brewers fans look as stupid as you.
Now you tell me, who's the board ruiner?
