How is this even a question? Really?
Hypocritical to say both of you wouldn't have some reservations of a biased opinion if a team you didn't follow was forced down your throat.
red sox yankees is great when theyre both competitive going to fenway in a sox yanks game is so great but also what about the cards astros a couple years ago like 2003-07 i think im not really sure but the cards always knocked the astros out until 05 when the astros beat them
And to your question, A does not equal B. Which is why I responded to odominator.
Stowe's beating getting publicity is because it was based on fan over-reaction. Had nothing to do with him being white, and if he had been black, there still would have been the same public out-cry. A man was basically murdered (not quite) or rather beaten to near death for being a fan. Maybe he was being obnoxious, maybe he deserved to have his *** whooped in perspective. But regardless of what anyone says, you never deserve to have your life ruined forever for the things you say.
The joke you made earlier was clearly crossing the line, very unacceptable, and it looks like it's trolling. You can make those jokes if you want, privately, with your friends or at home. But this is a public forum, where racism, gay intolerance, and otherwise, hurtful and hateful jokes against a race, religious group, etc are not acceptable. Making the joke you made was clearly crossing the line, and was completely out of nowhere and not acceptable. Don't do it here again. Jokes in bad taste are not accepted on PSD.
And this entire discussion about race is not only off-topic, but shouldn't even be discussed any further in a baseball thread, if you guys can't talk about the topic at hand, I'll close the thread. Stowe's beating is unacceptable regardless of his background, skin, religious beliefs or whatever. And making any kinds of jokes in that regard will now be deemed offensive and action will be taken upon them. Discuss it if you like, like adults. Consider this a formal warning to anyone who wants to make a Stowe joke in the future.

Well said, Jeffy.
As to your murder comment - they two scumbags were charged with Mayhem which carries a max of life in prison, like murder. That easily explains the severity if their heinous actions.
I'm not sure of an appropriate venue to make jokes about this topic or make jokes about race, religious beliefs or sexual orientation but I do know this is NOT it.
Sports....(Pro SPORTS Daily) keep it that way.
