I Know There Are “THE Rules” Which Will ALWAYS Trump “Sportsmanship”

…and that’s how life is and I accept it.

Just like I accept that life is also peppered with dicks, who use the minutiae in those rules in applications that pretty much appall the sportsman in most of us ~ that innate, inbred sense of fairness ~ but we’re at a loss to contest it, because, well…those…are the rules.

And, dicks or no, we abide by them.

He’ll get his ~ hopefully STRUNG up by it, if there’s any justice. But that’s just me.

    The opposing coach is a pig.
    What is jewelry? I’d think it
    would be a necklace,so it would prevent choking accidents.
    This Coach is probably jealous because she’s so
    good looking.

  2. JeffS says:

    Just imagine the message that “coach” sent his team.

    Hopefully, the team will see him for the louse that he is.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    Asshat of the year.

    “Knowles denied he was lying in wait.

    “I didn’t notice the bracelet until after she cleared the height and walked by,” he insisted. “[I had] a sinking feeling for her. I didn’t want to have to do it.”

    That’s enough BS to fertilize the Mojave Desert.

    When George Brett had too much pine tar on his bat, the umpires correctly called it by the letter of the rule. Baseball then overruled it in the spirit of the rule. Billy Martin did the exact same thing that twit coach did. There should be a governing body with the authority to step in and correct this. The bracelet gave the girl zero competitive advantage. It was a simple oversight.

    The guy is just plain a dick.

  8. Gary from Jersey says:

    Rob beat me to the pine tar story. The Yanks won the game but it was too late for the Royals, who haven’t had a decent season since.

  9. Rob says:

    The Royals won the game, Gary. The Yankees would have won had the umpires’ ruling been upheld.

    This was amateur sports, though. A warning for a first offense would have been sufficient.

    I’ll pass on the obvious bon mot. Does my restraint impress?

    How is a STRING a piece of jewelry? What a piece of work. And think about his kids who now are “champions” without having won on the field of play – they had it handed to them on a technicality that had nothing to do with the rules. I wish the judges on the spot had shown some brains and tossed out his claim.

    It’s STRING. Give me a break. The rule does NOT say that “NOTHING” is to be worn on the wrists, just “JEWELRY.”

    I hate unsportsmanlike crap like that. “Sinking feeling” my ass. He could have kept his mouth shut.
