Jesus, Apologist. It's a screencap to give everyone a chuckle. Calm down.

Keep the rambling psychological write ups in the Julie DiCaro thread.

I’m losing track of which internet people are trolls, which ones are joking and which don’t know better.

As if i'm strongly advocating some position or another, because largely I don't give a shit what people I don't know on the internets opinions are. If I was Fowler and had a spouse that might be directly affected by this nonsense, I might have a different opinion. There's a lot of reasons Cardinal fans are idiots on social media. I don't happen to find this one of them. This is one of the weaker trolling efforts Kirkwood, and this board has Brick and Dolphin on it.

I'm having a hard time understanding people being for or against Fowler either way based on his comments.
Unless there is a lot more that he said that wasn’t in the link above, I don’t even see his statement as being overtly political. He seemed to be commenting on how it impacted him and his family and how that was unfortunate. There may be more implied, but the comment itself is fairly innocuous. It seems that MANY are reading more into his comments based on their personal views.


It's dolphin, dipshit.

The old B&B show says "Gay".


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/pos ... it-claims/

Officer was told to ‘tone down your gayness’ if he wanted a promotion, lawsuit claims

In 2014, St. Louis County Police Sgt. Keith Wildhaber stopped by a local restaurant for a routine check, according to a lawsuit.

There, he spoke with John Saracino, who at the time was a member of St. Louis County Board of Police Commissioners. Saracino indicated to Wildhaber that he knew that the sergeant was applying for a promotion within the department, the lawsuit states.

“Mr. Saracino told Plaintiff, ‘The command staff has a problem with your sexuality,’ ” the court documents read. “‘If you ever want to see a white shirt (i.e., get a promotion), you should tone down your gayness.’”

Wildhaber has filed suit against the county, alleging that he had been subjected to employment discrimination by being denied promotions.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Saracino denied the conversation, which Wildhaber’s suit claimed occurred during a routine restaurant check.

“I never had a conversation like that,” Saracino told the newspaper. “I would never say anything like that. That’s not me.”

Saracino no longer serves on the civilian oversight board, according to the Post-Dispatch.

[A black police officer complained about racism. He says his department retaliated by firing him.]

Sgt. Shawn McGuire, a department spokesman, told The Washington Post that St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar would not comment on the lawsuit, because it was active.

“It is our firm’s practice not to comment on pending litigation,” Wildhaber’s attorney, Russ Riggan, said in a statement emailed to The Post on Friday. “Until the case goes before a jury, we will allow the Petition to speak for itself. Our system of justice provides the right to a fair trial, and we do not wish to compromise our client’s rights by commenting to the media.”

According to the lawsuit, filed in January and recently posted online by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Wildhaber has worked for the department for more than two decades. He applied for a lieutenant position, the lawsuit said, and took a written test and underwent an assessment. His scores during that process ranked him as No. 3, out of 26 candidates.

Wildhaber claims he was sorted into a group with nine other top candidates, all of whom have since been promoted except for Wildhaber and one other officer, who the suit states has issues that might have stalled his professional advancement.

Wildhaber has a clean disciplinary record, strong performance reviews and a solid résumé, according to the lawsuit.

“Nonetheless, Plaintiff has not been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant,” the suit states.

After a second round of candidates was sorted into the top group, Wildhaber again ranked as No. 3 on the list. Since February 2015, however, he has “continued to be passed over for multiple promotions,” according to the suit.

“Defendant has refused to promote Plaintiff because he does not conform to the County’s gender-based norms, expectations, and/or preferences,” the lawsuit states. “Mr. Saracino’s comments to Plaintiff are direct evidence of sex/gender discrimination.”

It continues: “That direct evidence is further buttressed by the fact that Plaintiff has received stellar performance reviews, has solid backing from his immediate supervisors (who have expressed surprise and displeasure about Plaintiff being continually passed over for promotions), and is more qualified to hold the position of Lieutenant.”

[An armless man couldn’t carry his bike up the stairs. He says it cost him his job.]

The suit alleges that Wildhaber filed a discrimination charge with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Missouri Commission on Human Rights in April. In May, according to the suit, he was reassigned from afternoon shifts in one precinct to midnight shifts in another precinct, which was located about 27 miles from his home.

The Post-Dispatch reported that Wildhaber was once asked to serve as a liaison to the LGBT community. That happened under another police chief who was replaced by Belmar, and Wildhaber didn’t step into that role.

Joe Patterson, president of the St. Louis County Police Association, told the newspaper that the group has asked Wildhaber to be a part of a still-forming committee that would “ensure all of our members are treated equally and fairly in the workplace, which is a bedrock principal of our organization.”

“We have been actively recruiting LGBT members and minority members to serve on steering committees in order to bring forth not only their concerns, but their ideas on how to improve the police association,” Patterson told the newspaper.

These responses are hilarious. I'm 100% sure you didn't read the article. You loved him, Mr. (appropriately monikered, as per your thoughts) GAY when he wore the blue of your team, but now he's a garbage human being because he did what 100% of us would do as far as taking the best deal financially for his family because of a click-bait article that you didn't even bother to read.

I have no idea what his views are. I hate him because he's on the Cardinals right after winning it all as a Cub. Bitch move.

Ah. A good old-fashioned sports hatred. That's fine. I don't really agree with the premise of it, but it's fine. I'm sorry I insulted you via username.
I'll go back to my anger management class now.

Mr Gay handled it like a champ. As I stare at my iPad and laugh hysterically, my family asks, "what are you laughing at now?" I say "the gays". They look at me curiously at which point I show them Hockey Gay. They understand now and call you guys "my gays".

The real bitch move is Fowler reneging on his deal with the O's to run back to the Cubs.

I have a suspicion that the backlash to Fowler would be nothing if he wasn't balck, and if he was married to a Christian.

This thread has gotten into some froggy territory. With Spring Training underway, I'll post some baseball content soon (for all 3 or 4 of us Bird-on-Bat fans on here :lol: )

Really enjoying El Gallo's development. He is a joy to watch, and that repertoire is downright filthy.
"Baby Pedro" indeed.

DeJong went yard work in his first AB. That's fucking awesome. He's going to be the next Cards hitter "no one ever heard of."

The Cards are really struggling. Swept by the Cubs. Lost 3 in a row to the Reds and losing again today. Yadi just made perhaps the worst throw of his career and they have moved Fowler out of the leadoff spot.

Don't stop now boys!

It's very possible. Pre-TJ he has been a very durable and consistent 15 win, 200 IP guy.
He's been mostly fine this year despite the ERA but the flyball/HR rate is somewhat alarming or unlucky, depending on one's view. I'd chalk it up to the 1st year after TJS syndrome, he's about as dependable a #3 type you will find

Paul DeJong is a big league SS. Unbelievable. He played 2B and 3B in college and guys were split on if he could stick at either. He also caught some mid week games and we really liked him back there but he's had two knee surgeries so it was hard to go all in. There was never a question about his bat. Makes you recalibrate your thinking going forward.

He's been sort of okayish at 2B and 3B. SS isn't a good look, but they somewhat surprisingly demoted Aledmys to get his head out of his ass. Dejong's plate discipline was questionable n the minors, but they pushed him hard. I don't see that improving in the Show. He's a utility guy for me. He'll probably be fine there.
