Looks like Tony Pente has decided to shut the site down.

 

Hopefully some of the better posters over there make their way over here.

 

It was a good site for talking O's but I'm glad I never gave Pente a dime by becoming a plus member.

Unless he has a baseball sewn into his lower intestine this isn’t true!!!!!

Well that baseball has a self eject button for when the O's stand up for African Americans.

It’s such a tone deaf statement. Whatever.

It's funny that while Tony wanted to run a political free site, he accused me on at least on two occasions of being a Communist. ( One was over my calling Ravens fans out for throwing snowballs at the Vikings. The other was implying that a former Ravens linebacker ( Rolando McClain) may have been targeted unfairly when he was arrested for speeding in his hometown in Alabama.

It's his site, but I think his rationale is pretty messed up. Yeah, pro sports has been caught up in the political climate of the country. Plus, it's one game. If Chris takes over the site can I get my ban pardoned? Lol

Come on, man.

The Orioles and Rays voted to play the game

The union stepped in to enforce the boycott.

What did he expect the Orioles to do?

Seems like he was looking for a reason to take this stand.

I just wanted to say thank you for having a new place to post about the Os and Ravens etc. I know this should be moved or deleted but tried to post it in the props hangout post.

Welcome, glad to have you here! 

Appreciate you coming to check us out.

Here is a thread for intros... 

https://forum.baltim...-introductions/

 

 

 

All are certainly welcome. I just want BSL to be a place that houses quality discussions. Some new blood would be great.

FTR, you don't have to agree with my opinions on anything. 

You are welcome to tell me I'm wrong. 

 

All I ask is that posters treat each other with respect.

Hopefully you guys won't be. Come to BSL.

I may be the only one here who'll say it, but I sympathize with Tony's viewpoint. This rush to judgment from people untrained on threats to police .... I've grown tired of it. I want my sports to be refuge from it.

 

I'm disappointed in MLB sticking it in my face that I must be racist when I don't agree with narrative that the "seven shots in the back" automatically equates into police misconduct. Because I don't. Perhaps since they don't have to play when they don't feel like it, MLB ought to give me back my mlb.tv subscription money.
