Will all baseball be banned soon, since it has so many aspects liberals hate?

1. tons of broken bats = tons of trees cut down.
2. there is a winner and a loser, which is cruel, according to liberals.
3. tons of electricity used in the stadiums.
4. I'm sure plenty baseball players have ancestors who owned slaves. Even the black ones.
5. gloves made out of leather. "animal cruelty, much?" says liberal.
6. players wear caps, and trump had that make America great cap...
7. all that fuel used flying them all over the country to play the games.
8. they make money. money is bad, according to liberals. and they should all make the same amount, no matter their skill, right?
9. even though black people make up a small percentage of the population, they should also make up 50% of owners, players, and coaches. RACISM!

My second biggest reason is escaping me at the moment, so I will have to mention that when I remember it...

Personally, I think It should be banned from TV.

Unless it's the World Series, it's like watching paint dry!

But Hey! Being at the game is a world of difference!

I wouldn't miss it. Professional sports are all boring as hell. Even tennis has become unwatchable and I love playing tennis.

As a side note, that football game that you spend 3 hours on Sunday watching has about 11 minutes of actual football action. If you watched 3 games on Sunday, you just spent all afternoon and half the night for about 30 minutes of football entertainment.

Certainly having multiple fans in single year sustain serious injuries to their face and head shows they need to do a far better job of protecting their fans from serious injury from flying bat fragments or fly balls.ALL PROFESSIONAL SPORTS ARE SEEING STEEP DECLINES IN THEIR TV AUDIENCES we have for years been presented with far too many less than exciting sporting events on TV.Other than this idiotic post I haven't heard anyone talk of banning baseball.Most pro baseball players today aren't born in America.

A little girl recently got hit in the face by a flyball at Yankee Stadium.

The rule is that if you get hurt at a game, you entered at your own risk.
I hope the owners at least paid for her medical treatment and gave her free tickets.

Pretty sure they're going to be adding the extra netting that other ballparks have already added.

Women using "mansplain" is hilariously ironic, seeing how women are the ones who think they know everything and "explain" things to men, who already do know the truth.

Also the word mansplain is just as bad as "the n word". It's used to bash a group of people. Typical liberal hypocrites.

Society is seriously spinning so out of control now. All these groups are full of anger. I feel like all the negativity against men and all the negativity against women is just going to get in everyone's heads and make relationships that much harder. For instance, the media (and tv shows in particular) paint relationships as women are in control and men should be wimpy losers and I see IRL more and more women thinking they can behave however they want.

This one girl I talk to who is 23... she has the most ridiculous temper and thinks it's ok because she's female. This other girl I dated a while back when she was 18 flat out TOLD ME that it's ok for women to act like that, as well, but not men. lol. Seriously both of these girls flat out told me that it's ok for women to call men names and attack them, but it's wrong for men to.

I guess it's sort of part of the feminist movement.... fighting against the old stereotypes of women need to be all polite and proper.

Many are being indoctrinated to have a sexist, elitist attitude.. Yet, they are the same ones that will ridicule a guy if he thinks the same way..

If they have relationship problems, instead of applying honest effort to grow the relatiionship, they just $hit can the guy and find another victum..

Theyll go get a dog and yank it around with doggy treat rewards for their future marriage training..

Why not? As some walk around as if guys are drooling all over the place and the Universe revolves around them.

Woman these days can scare you into dating foreigners..

My guess is all liberal women think they are lesbians. (most probably have no attraction to women, but they hate men so much, they convince themselves they are).

That is funny. I am not sure what lingo men would say that infuriates a woman. But, on my end, I dont care much for my recreation place being labeled as a "mancave" or "den".

Baseball will never go away. The biggest impact of baseball in the US, is the lack of children outside playing, instead they're sitting in front of a TV for those 3 hours, playing video games.

Luckily the rest of the world, is embracing the sport, due to the fact, you don't require $500 of equipment for each player, or a set field etc. Most American kids growing up, came up with their own field's, shared glove's and went as far as playing stick ball, when they didn't have the right equipment or couldn't play with a hardball in the cities.

Nah, I feel the same way he does. It's a really really boring game. I don't even consider it a sport. There's not nearly enough movement for it to be a sport. I mean, you don't call chess a sport. It's a game of strategy, like baseball, and it's just as boring to watch as chess.

Definitely not. Golf is a game. There are people that consider NASCAR a sport. That's pretty ridiculous if you ask me. If NASCAR is a sport, than so is playing video games.

Minor league baseball is way more of a sport than professional baseball. In the minors, they actually play the game. In the pros, I have to wait a few hours for the pitcher to finish scratching himself and throwing to first.

That's one of the reasons I like hockey. They actually limit the amount of commercials. Every period you get 3 tv timeouts and that's it. Out of any televised sport, I'm pretty sure it has the least amount of commercials.

It's why I haven't had a tv service in years. Netflix and Hulu cost me about $25 a month and I don't have any commercials. Cable companies can't offer that type of deal. The only thing that sucks is I can't watch live sports. But my computer is hooked up to the TV, so it's not really that big of a problem.

I think everything is better live. I never watched horse racing because I had absolutely no interest. But then I went to a race. I have never seen so much alcohol in my life. Turns out people that go to horse races don't care that much about the horses either. Drunk by 10AM. It was a good time.

Not caring about sports is about the only way someone can get by on streaming services.

I could save so much money if I didn't care about sports because all I need otherwise is a very few cable channels and the network channels.

Another problem, though, is my internet goes out way too often to have streaming services be dependable enough.

Also, I only watch parts of baseball games on tv because I am in expensive fantasy leagues so sometimes I need to get a good look at pitchers and see if I feel they are really going to do well. It's down to the final 10 days now and I am so stressed because I am only 1 point ahead of the third place team, and only 7 and 1.2 behind the top team and a lot of moves are backfiring on me.

I think going to live sporting events is boring. unless you have front row seats.

Just depends what it is.

I went to the elite eight game here in Memphis last year and also one not many years ago as well (that one was florida vs someone....I forget who... seems like Dayton) and those were fun because of the unbelievable energy surrounding such an important game.

The one last year was extra intense because it was kentucky vs. north carolina. My dad actually got in for free because someone had an extra ticket and just gave him it. lol. Mine cost money.
