"It seems to have offended Phil Dumbphy enough that he doesn't post here anymore."
Is this a witch hunt now?, If you have never used a slur towards anyone in your whole life even in a joking matter,then your a better man/person than me. However , Young nor syndergaard were not the first and wont be the last pro athletes/humans to make/say a stupid comment. Iam not playing it down, Iam just being a realist. Id be more worried about the young bat throwing incident. btw syndergaard said it to his friend in a joking fashon. He didnt say it to try to directly offend anyone. The comment was meant and directed towards his friend."
Where were the Wilpons when they signed Ryan Church? that was a little more than a joke with a friend. The point is the people that are using Youngs slur as the reason he wasnt signed is the witch hunt. Its abusurd that people cannot just say, "Yeah, we should have been in on that"
"No, he was make the point that we should have signed Young despite his anti-semetic tirade. "
Which uses as its one and only premise, that he wasn't signed because of the tirade.
And he used ridiculous comparisons.
Did they not sign anyone else because of racial slurs? Or criminal records? Or bad hygiene?
? Ok but thats not what your thread says . you were trying smear snydergaard by insinuating he was a racist and yet what snydergaard said was a joke to his friend ,. Fact , Should we have been in on him? For $750,000. Yea prob."
Dude you misunderstood me big time. At no point did I or do I wanna smear a 19 uear old kid. I think its absurd thet peoples EVERY word is under a microscope. My point was how STUPID it is to use Youngs <jewish slur as a reason the Wilpons didnt sign him. The Wilpon defenders LOVE using whatever they can to defend the non moves. The biggest defense on not signing Young was the slur. My question was, why wasnt anyone upset of Synderguard then? My thread was to point out hypocrosy. I have NO IDEA how you took that as Im smearing the kid but that is not my intention
"I think he wasn't signed because the Wilpons don't want to spend money. "
I don't think 750K or so is too much even for them.
