Explosive and shocking allegations against junior hockey in newly filed lawsuit

What the fuck? I mean, there's hazing--picking on the young kids in a almost good-natured way. In and of itself, it's a stupid, but not necessarily damaging, thing. I think I mentioned before, when I played varsity hockey as a freshman, the 3 freshmen on the team were expected to supply the seniors with tape. A low-grade form of bullying, to be sure, but I'm by no means scarred from it.

This is so far beyond the pale that I don't even know how to respond.

Hockey Is Not for Everyone

Man, that's a hell of a story. I wish I could dismiss it as one person's shitty experience, but I'm aware enough to know that it is not. As a freshman playing varsity hockey, I took a lot of shit from the older guys--not invited to team parties, expected to provide tape--but nothing approaching genuine "hazing." At that fragile stage of my life, that kind of relentless abuse would have been devastating.

2020 NFL Draft

My condolences to Joe Burrow on his selection by Cincinnati.

A joke, I know. But the Bengals organization is showing some signs of life these days, and I hope that Burrow is as good as advertised. New coach, new ethos, and no more turning a blind eye to the character concerns in the name of economy. No more hanging on to veteran players based solely on familiarity. Mike Brown has loosened up both his death grip on personnel and his purse strings over the past year +.

Plus, the lease is up on Paul Brown Stadium in 2026, and I honestly believe that if the Bengals don't give Cincinnati a reason to get behind them before then, they're destined for St. Louis. Why St. Louis you ask? Beyond the obvious, there is a strong connection to the City (you heard it here first) and the teams. I played hockey growing up in Cincinnati with Paul Brown III, of the Bengals Brown family, obviously. One of our teammates was Andy DeWitt, son of William DeWitt, managing partner of the Cardinals. Brown and DeWitt were pretty tight, and I bet the families have remained close over the years. We also played with Phil Castelinni, son of Bob Castelinni, owner of the Reds.

I guess my point is this--where's my professional franchise, Dad?

Harlem Globetrotters' legend Curly Neal dies at age 77

Man, I remember watching Globetrotters' games at the old Hartford Civic Center growing up in the 70's. The things that Curly Neal could do with a basketball were flat-out astounding, not to mention his oversized personality and magnetism as a human being on the court and off. Perhaps his finest achievement was teaming up with a rag tag band of nomadic young adults who may or may not have been high on reefer to solve mysteries (link to documentary).

Rest in peace to one of the great ambassadors of the game of basketball.

Tom Brady Says Goodbye to New England Patriots

So the upside of this for Brady is that if he can drag the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl, he absolutely cements his legacy as the GOAT, and eliminates any vestigial "system quarterback" arguments that might remain.

I think the flip side of that argument is more perilous for Brady. If Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, or any other journeyman QB--or newbie Jarrett Stidham--steps into Belichick's scheme and wins a Bowl (or two or three), it breathes life back into the "system quarterback" argument in a big way, doesn't it?

American Sports World Dragging Its Feet on Coronavirus

If we experience a caseload like Wuhan at its peak, it will fill every ICU in America with a COVID-19 patient in critical condition, per Harvard epidemologist Marc Lipsitch.

But at least only about 30% of them will be bankrupted by the experience.

I've seen a lot of Lipsitch's predictions lately, and get the impression that he tends to estimate the effects of COVID-19 on the catastrophic side when compared to other experts. I concede, of course, that he might just be the best at what he does. I think it is equally likely that he is the most alarmist among his peers. We'll see, I suppose.

American Sports World Dragging Its Feet on Coronavirus

Three percent of the U.S. population is nine million people.

I don't think we anticipate that 100% of the population will be infected, do we?

The flu's mortality is generally 0.05% to 0.10%.

The 3% mortality number cited in the article I linked was extrapolated from one specific region of China. It also says that he fatality rate in areas away from the epicenter of the outbreak was 0.16%. If that lower number is eventually the actual mortality rate over a greater sample size, we're dealing with a severe version of the flue--albeit an admittedly much more contagious varietal. But nothing compared to the H5N1 rate of 10%.

I'm not saying this is a non-issue; it's a big deal. But I don't think it's a "cancel everything and buy up all the toilet paper" big deal. Be smart, wash your hands, minimize direct physical contact, and know the symptoms so you can get checked out if you're sick. Shutting down the country isn't a rational response [at this stage of the virus' development]. And if I'm flat-ass wrong and this is indeed a pandemic that kills millions, then I hope I live long enough to admit how wrong I was.

American Sports World Dragging Its Feet on Coronavirus

By then, it may be too late.

Too late for what?! Too late to prevent extremely healthy twenty- and thirty-somethings from getting sick with something resembling the flu or RSV? I mean, the reason that there has not been a lot of fear, and should not be, is that the overwhelming majority of the population is not at risk from this virus. I'm not dismissing the issue entirely--I think we should recognize the danger this virus presents to our senior citizens and those with underlying issues. But we can't just shut down the entire country for a virus with a three percent mortality rate. Obviously, do like the CDC says and wash the hell out of your hands. If you're in one of the at-risk groups, be judicious about your exposure to large groups. But, c'mon Lietch, what are you proposing here?!

does the math change if additional players (or teams) sue the Astros? Also, does it make a difference that he is not looking to be the recipient of the damages, but to punish the team with the money going to charity?

The math definitely changes depending on the quality of the player, the outcome of the action (did the player keep pitching? Can they prove it diminished the contract they got?). Bolsinger is unique in that he never pitched again and was no great shakes to begin with.

As far as the recipient of the damages--no change that I can see. The elements and burden of proof don't change. ALTHOUGH it might actually weaken his case in that it tends to disprove that he suffered compensable damages and is just seeking some sort of punishment in principle.

Glad to see he is up and lucid; that shit is scary as hell. Back in high school, one of my teammates collapsed on the bench like that. Turns out he had a collapsed lung. Had there not been several doctors present at the rink (hockey parents tend to have money), he would have likely died on the bench (at 17).

MLB Ponders Radical Playoff Changes

My initial reaction was "ha ha ha...fuck no." But there are some elements that might be intriguing. To my knowledge, this would be the first "pick your opponent" format, which I have to admit I kind of like. How many times does a top seed come up against a team that has been essentially playing playoff baseball (or whatever other sport) for a month before entering the playoffs? And how often is that last seed firing on all cylinders at the right time? I think the option to play whoever you want serves as a great reward for finishing on top. But I also see managers getting fired for picking the wrong opponent and bowing out early.

Unfair business practices--[California] law defines unfair business practices as business practices and advertising that are unlawful, unfair, fraudulent, deceptive, untrue, or misleading. The first hurdle they would have to overcome is demonstrating that the cheating system falls within a "business practice." I think that can be done--shit, just point to every single player who gets traded and/or released saying "this is a business." There is nothing "unlawful, fraudulent, deceptive, or untrue" about sign stealing, but I think it certainly qualifies as "unfair." So they might have a prima facie case for it. If I'm defending the suit, I say that there is no proximate cause between the sign stealing and the end of a mediocre-at-best pitcher's career (he would have been signed but for the cheating).

Negligence--someone owes a duty of care, breaches that duty, causing both in-fact and proximate harm to the victim, resulting in damages. One could argue that the Astros owed a duty to the rest of the league and its individual players to play within the rules, and that the duty was breached by the sign stealing practice. I think harm-in-fact can be shown (there is a linear progression from sign stealing--> release), but we go back to the proximate cause element again. If this had been a top-tier pitcher who would undoubtedly have been re-signed but for the sign stealing, it might hold up. Bolsinger...maybe not.

Intentional interference with contractual and economic relations--[Massachusetts law] says a defendant is liable to pay damages in tort for actions intended to interfere with the plaintiff's contractual relations with a third party. The burden is on the plaintiff to prove the following four elements: (1) that a valid contract existed (easy), (2) that defendant had knowledge of the contract (easy), (3) that defendant acted intentionally and improperly (easy), and (4) that plaintiff was injured by the defendant's actions (well...here we are again at "but for"). This sounds like the strongest cause of action, but it will be an uphill battle.

On all of the above claims, I think a court would be very careful about setting precedent. Where does "gamesmanship" end and "unfair" begin? Do we really want every professional athlete who loses a game because of a breach of the rules to have legal recourse against the perpetrator? An uncalled pass interference? Sue the team? The DB? The keeper moves a split second early on a penalty kick? A hockey player gets hooked or interfered with on a breakout? I don't see it happening.

Keep your freaking head up

**Man, it sure seems like the dinosaurs were still in charge as late as 2011. "Keep your head up" isn't a panacea when it comes to blind-side runs like the one Beaucheman took at Fischer. Sometimes a pass comes from behind you, like that pass to Fischer. He wasn't skating while staring at the puck, he was looking back toward the passer. The game has definitely become better as players lean that they can field those passes without getting their heads charged at.

**I say all of this as a Scott Stevens fan. He played within the rules--I'm glad the rules have changed.

Blockbuster Trade between the Dodgers and Red Sox (and the Twins)

I thought the Sox might follow the Nationals model--get absolutely fuckall for a generational talent, and then bring home a championship. Looks like they blew it by getting something in return.

If the Sox go into an extended period of futility after this, I'm going to take some responsibility (is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?). I've been an avid Sox hater for the better part of 20 years, largely because I'm one of those idiots who tends to cheer for small market underdogs. So of course they've been winning. I finally went to a game at Fenway a few summers back and started to come around to the charms of the Sox (again-I grew up a Sox fan in the 70's in CT before moving to Cincinnati). So, sorry Boston fans, I kinda like the Sox now, which means they will win jackshit.

Crawford was the coach who sent Bertuzzi out to sucker punch pick a fight with Moore, which Moore refused, leading Bertuzzi to inexcusably sucker punch him.

The difference is important, and I'm not sure you can pin Bertuzzi's actions on Crawford. Moore fought with (and arguably cheap-shotted) Matt Cook a Canucks player during a fight-filled game.* Crawford, whether you agree with such retribution or not, sent Bertuzzi onto the ice to try to even the score through another fight. The much bigger Bertuzzi attempted to goad Moore into a fight, which Moore wisely refused. Bertuzzi then chased him down the ice and punched him in the back of the head and landed on him.

*We should all thank Moore for kicking Cook's ass, but that's beside the point.

As much as I like hating the Patriots, this one seems like an unintentional error.

Looking back at my comment, one might reasonably conclude that I believed that the Pats were [again] intentionally cheating and [again] got caught. This Bengals fan does not actually think that is true. If you have to cheat to beat this year's crop of cast-offs, has-beens, and never-will-bes, you have no business winning the Super Bowl every other year for a decade or two.

I just think that with all of the accusations in the past--many of which were much more than just smoke--the Pats should probably be more aware of the optics of what they do as an organization. Knowing that there will be constant suspicions and accusations of cheating, why would they do anything that might raise additional concerns?
