you missed my point genius, to steal your line. The reason 90% of the players in the NBA acting the way you describe are black is because 90% of the players overall are black. Baseball has 10% black players, and 10% of the issues will be with black players. It is simple math.
i guess thats why black america is what 30% of thepopulation yet are responsible for double that amount in crimes commited, Simple math there as well

One more thing Strat, im still waiting for you to give me some examples of white players who make up the majority of the rosters in MLB. give me some examples of those who spout off in the media, are involved in altercations at bars, talk about how disrespected they are making 10 million a year, have run ins with their managers. By your logic it should be 60% of the time that stuff happens it would be a white player and only 8% of the time a black player since thats the racial makeup of MLB. You really think that if you did some reasearch that it would reflect that demographic??

Actually, I think it is only 15%. your "stats" are just wild guesses, although the real stats do support your case. Basically, where there is poverty there is crime, and more blacks live in poverty. Might have something to do with we whites having about a 200 year head start on the american dream (assuming you agree that the 1970's were the first era when blacks were offered a reasonable chance to succeed, and even then/now there is still significant discrimination).

But enough of that. I am not sure what crime stats have to do with whiners in sports. I think you strayed onto the wrong boards as your points all seem to be politically and racially motivated rather than having anything to do with the subject of the board.

yeah. They just take steroids, refuse to testify in congress, write tell-all books exposing their former teammates, get banned from the HoF for gambling on their own team, throw world series etc.

the crime stats support the arguement that blacks are more likely for lack of a better term to be troublemakers in all walks of life which carries over to sports arena. Sure use the excuse about the 200 year head start we had, thats why they continue to not help themselves in society, blame everyone but themselves for their problems, ruin almost all neighborhoods they move into, and in general have no interest in joining civilized society. In todays society,all the average black person has to do is complete high school and somehow manage to stay out of jail and there are companies that are dying to hire them and by law HAVE to so dont give that crap about how they are so disadvantaged. If you think in athletics that there are just as many whites who act out towards their coaches, complain to the media about what their not getting,and are involved in crimes and felonies off the court, thats your perrogative. I choose to live in the real world however

I have been in management positions in business for the majority of 30 years and if you don't think racial discrimination hinders the avancement of women and minorities, you have no grasp on the real world and you are too bigoted to care anyway. Ignore list... now, back to basketball chat folks.

golf clap for you being in management positions for 30 years and my condolences. Maybe things were like that 30 years ago but if you think that women and minorities dont have advantages over the basic white male employee nowadays..please give me some of what your smoking.Show me a law that says you have to hire a certain % of white males because there sure as hell is one that says you have to have so many minorities. So fine ignore me and dont reply, buy a house in englewood and live there if you think that blacks arent violent,sociopathetic, with no regard for human life. See how long you would last there. So long chump

Gordon pays his equiv to a small parking fine, but Hughes, who played over 20 minutes in 15 of the 18 Bulls wins, plus won two games by himself, one in the last minute and one at the buzzard gets DNP for the year? Forget every stat but W or L, for it will be the stat the will kill management, coaches, season ticket holders and advertisers and now in a recession, luxury boxes. Look for a BIG IMPACT in twenty games.

Time to just win! Stop the mickey mouse stuff. Don't even feel like watching for free anymore. Its the D. Rose show.
A rookie running the team a year out of high school, no wonder every player is yelling "TAXI" to get out of Chicago. Every press, picture, Bulls press release, Rookie of the year, etc., ROSE ROSE ROSE. Hey, it ain't to Rosey with 18 WINS

Three times Larry and Derek are on a break away and Derek passes to Larry and Larry doesn't pass it back when clearly it was evident that he should have and he didn't and he blew the shot. We got Larry way to late in his career, Micheal loved him but it wasn't to be.
