    ESPN has pulled football announcer Robert Lee from Virginia's football game.

    Amazingly, that is not an Onion article. This is the society that we live in, and when people ask or wonder why Trump got elected, you can look at things like this. Stupid **** like this led to the stupid response of voters getting behind Trump because people viewed him as the only candidate to go against the crazy, unfortunately, he fights crazy with crazy.

    BTW, Robert Lee is Asian.

    From a headline, that is pretty ridiculous

    But in reality, he wanted to be pulled and espn agreed. He didn't want to be seen as a joke all over the Internet, that Robert Lee was back in the south where all that garbage happened last week or the week before

    Well, he's become the joke of the internet. No one would've even cared or noticed if he called the game.

    ESPN is saying they didn't make him, they asked him, and they eventually mutually agreed to it, so basically, they made him. If as an organization you are that afraid of the alt-right making dumb memes, then you are just weak. No reasonable person would've cared.

    We'll we do live in a Meme Society at this point. Context and truth do not matter anymore, just a picture with some words Photoshoped in.

    The alt-right/trolls will troll regardless. ESPN doing this just gives them more fuel. He was scheduled to be on ESPN3, do we really think the trolls of the internet would've cared more about that than something else going on? Trolls go for the biggest impact, and I'm sure something else would've created more impact if ESPN didn't bring this story up.

    ESPN did exactly what the trolls wanted and the memes are going to be swarming the internet now.

    The politically correct police do feed into their narrative

    Espn is a shell of its former self. Any publicity is good publicity at this point.

    I guarantee you that people would have cared if Robert Lee was calling a game in Charlottesville after what happened there. I think if the reporter wanted to be removed from the game, it made sense for ESPN to do so.

    what do you expect from espn? did you see the way they treated curt schilling compared to bruce jenner? or how about them dedicating like 15mins of a show to Obama's march madness picks like anyone cares.

    company is one of the biggest PC companies in the world.

    if i was GM i would have gotten something for Lynn, rosey and others.

    instead, we will be getting ZERO back from them and in roseys case, the poor fella will never be the same. The ONLY thing he had going for him was 100mph+, thats gone forever now, ta ta.

    Mo is 10x worse than Matheny and that is SAD!

    I think that you will see Lynn staying with the Cardinals. Something tells me that this off season will be VERY active and trading both prospects and Players to get the big bat we are going to need and possibly an addition to the rotation. I think that 1/3 or even 2/3 of Leake(trade with a % of salary retained) Wacha(trade or bullpen) and Waino(retires and becomes a pitching coach with Chris Carpenter :)) will leave and Alex Reyes and Lynn will have a spot in the rotation.

    Lynn, yes, I agree.

    Rosenthal, you had no way of knowing that he'd need TJ and he was a remarkably valuable piece of the bullpen under team control next year. Dumb to trade him. Also he probably won't lose velocity, most pitchers don't. I've linked a study before.

    Wait is Rosey worth anything? I thought he was a terrible pitcher who couldn't be trusted according to you?

    I hope Mo and Girsch find a takers for those two. Leake needs to go. There is a trade out there (like Jaime Garcia) that can be made. Wacha has some value and could bring a decent return. I could also see him staying and going being in competition with Reyes again for a starting role. If Wacha would lose, he would make an excellent reliever. However, as I originally said, I hope that Leake and Wacha are traded.

    There is zero reason to trade Wacha.

    Did anyone watch the Mayweather/McGregor weigh-in? The weight limit is 153, and when Mcgregor got on the scale the guy clearly yelled "156", then he pushed the scale the g to the right about an inch, and they announced a weight of 153...I can't find anyone talking about this on the inter webs, though, wondering if I'm crazy.

    Edit - the guy had a NY/Boston accent, said 153. I'm crazy.

    I just like seeing the ******** from the tap out shirt gang. What happened is exactly what was always going to happen.
