Attention Mods:

please don't suspend this guy for this

suspending him would carry the implication that I should or would care what he posts

I couldn't care less what he posts

if you want to suspend me or apply any further discipline for anything I posted - that's fine

I wouldn't challenge that

I guess Iím nuts then. Youíd have to pay me to watch the NHL, and probably MLB.

This world, next thing you know people are going to be referring to car racing, horse racing and golf as ďsports.Ē




for somebody who doesn't think much of the MLB you posted some pretty strong opinions about the relative greatness of Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Hank Aaron

you don't think horse racing is a sport___________?

you have absolutely no knowledge at all about the tremendous skill required to be a great jockey, or to train a great thoroughbred

you think the world revolves around the NFL and the NBA______________(~:/_______________seriously - it's a very big world out there

this is like somebody who doesn't like classical music saying that Beethoven sucks

if itís a sport. Jockey, trainer, , those guys are all skilled tradesmen imo, itís an entertainment product, but I would never consider them athletes.

so, Irad Ortiz Jr. - the #1 jockey in America who wins about 27% of his races, most of them high dollar races, is not an athlete - the average win % of a jock is about 12%


that's going to come as a surprise to an awful lot of people

go back to the NFL and the NBA where you belong - your comments on other "sports" are not going to get you a job with ESPN

Fine, horse racing can be a sport. It can be acknowledged as a sport in its euology since itís a dying sport virtually nobody not on the back nine cares a bit about.

this linked article is just for you - from January 2022 - Headline:


"U.S. Horse Racing Betting Handle Surges to Highest in Years"


from the article:


"Some of the key points from the data include:


Total wagering handle topped $12.2 billion in 2021, an 11.86% increase over 2020
U.S. purses exceeded $1.1 billion, a 35.77% increase over the previous year
U.S. race days and total races jumped by more than 20% over last year
The average field size contracted from 7.94 to 7.37, a 7.20% decrease
The average purses per race day increased by over 10% to just shy of $290,000


Most notably, the U.S. horse racing industry achieved this growth while recovering from the effects of a global pandemic, significant negative press resulting from well-publicized scandals, safety issues, and regulatory changes stemming from new legislation.

Hereís NTRA President and CEO Tom Rooney on the numbers:

"Against an extraordinarily difficult backdrop, the resiliency of Thoroughbred racing was on full display in 2021 as we concluded the year with significant growth in purses and total handle of more than $12 billion, the highest since 2009.Ē

now, I repeat - go back to your room and stay there

you can come out of your room 2 days before the first NFL preseason game on August 11 - not until



I'm done - I'm outta here - any more shots you take at "other" sports will go unrebutted

the fairway is wide open - an easy path to the green

You provided no rebuttal to the age of anyone interested in horse racing. No one under 60 cares. So people who have money to retire and bet care. Thatís all you showed.

One last thing. Go fuck yourself for your disrespectful tone. Youíre a piece of work.

You're suspended for use of vulgar language and for a personal insult. 7 days suspension, pending review by other mods

In spite of LLR's request for clemency, I concur with Gordon's judgement. The obscenity was offensive to all that would read it, including new visitors.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

Your leniency request was duly noted. After review by Wizard and two other mods, mcallister3200's suspension will remain at 7 days. OD did a good job of explaining the rationale.

LRR, we also reviewed your posts leading up to mcallister3200's post. I understand why mcallister3200 was angry at you because I thought your posts did indeed have a disrespectful tone. However, your posts were not rules violations and don't merit any action on our part.

This matter is closed.

Who watched that Breakers-Stallions game yesterday? It was awesome seeing someone bring the "T" formation back to pro football. It will be interesting to see if they use it against Philly and if the Stars have prepared for it.
