Yes, it is a free country. And, I would be free to award them NOTHING!
i am not a fan of lawsuits, and i do not believe that frivolous lawsuits do anything for america, im actually for tort reform. but i do believe that something happened at the ball park, of course anything i am saying is just a guess, im sure we will hear more about it. there had to have been witnesses to the incident. i still feel that the boys did not have to stand unless they felt like it. i probably would have stood myself, but i stand(no pun intended) by the boys rights to sit that one out if they so choose, this is america...the beautiful....land of freedom.

LOL! No, not that. I asked what does "based on the fact that probably" mean?

In other words, if it's something based on fact, then it's a fact and there's no degree of probability to consider. If it is a probability, then it is an assumption based on a probable outcome and not an established fact. Can't be both.

ok here is an example of fact influencing probability. the FACT is it gets very cold in alaska.....if you go there unprepared you will PROBABLY freeze.
the fact is cobras are poisonous, if one bites you you will probably die.

the fact is, there is a huge anti arab, anti muslim bias in this country in the post 9-11 environment.
due to the fact that at least two out of three of the boys was of middle eastern descent, it is highly probable that the owner's anger was at least in part racially motivated, when you consider that they were playing GOD bless america, a tradition that started in the wake of 9-11. a passionate new yorker would probably be very upset about this. it does not take thought to see how this thing could have unfolded.
i hope i have helped you understand how fact and probability are linked together.
