seems like this whole thing was blown a little out of proportion by sports media.  They cherry picked the phrase to make it seem like Rory was taking a shot at tiger and phil when he was just answering a question about how it was the first time for a very long time since neither phil or tiger was playing in the tour championship.  He even said that he didnt necessarily think that their era was over, just that they were getting older.

100% agree.  the phils have not played up to their ability for the past couple of seasons and it is especially disappointing considering the level of pitching that we have been getting from both our starters and our bullpen.  The phils have made some poor decisions with the contracts that they have signed their veteran hitters to over the past few years and their unwillingness to deal their veterans to replenish the farm system that they depleted to bring in Halladay, Lee,...
definitely been a tough year to be a phils fan but I'm glad to see that they still haven't given up even though they are on the bottom of the nl east going into the last month of the season.  I cant wait to see what some of our minor leaguers can do when they expand their roster for September.
Kinda interesting seeing how the opinions on this topic seem to have gotten much more passionate since this thread started back in '06.  I voted for the pamphlet/booklet idea since it would be easy to administer and even though i'm sure a lot of people would discard them at least a few would spend the time to read it and maybe learn something new about etiquette and course upkeep which they could then pass on to someone who decided to just throw it away.  i have gotten...
I have spent quite a bit of time in my colleges training room for various injuries and can say that icing an injury makes a big difference in recovery time even just to improve muscle recovery times (that is why pitches ice their arms after they pitch and to keep the pain down).  I'm not sure where the writer of that blog got their info but swelling of an injury can actually do more harm than good to the healing process.  The general purpose of the swelling of an injury...
fair enough...maybe not the baseline however 30-60 feet outside of a baseball field's fenced in area is very common and just as easily hit.  what about a fan that gets hit by a foul ball at a little league game? do you sue the kid for hitting the foul ball and expect him or her to pay for damages, or do you expect the spectator to have thier own set of morals and take responsibility for being in an area where they could have been hit by a ball?
you are actually very wrong about this here.  I have played on many baseball fields where houses are very close to the field and well within normal foul ball or home run balls.  I think you are absolving the home owner of a little too much in these situations.  While it is certainly not their fault that their house got hit, they are certainly responsible for buying a house on a golf course in range of an errant drive. i've actually done some research into this topic...
though the war on drugs is certainly causing a lot of the violence surrounding drugs i think you are discounting the potential problems that would follow a complete legalization of drugs by making them more available and more widely used.  though alcohol is now legal there are still a ton of issues surrounding it like alcoholism, and drunk driving that are killing quite a lot of people each year and driving up the cost of healthcare.  Legalizing drugs would most likely...
It has more to do with the image of the organization than anything else.  The conduct of a companies employees or an organizations members reflect upon the company or organization and if it puts them in a negative light then it is usually not good for the bottom line.  I dont particularly care either way about a person who uses recreational drugs and i dont think using drugs make someone a bad person but companies also have the freedom to decide what type of person works...
