    Apologies to the alleged victim, but this does not surprise me in the slightest that Bauer is into pain and humiliation.

      Ok, but I guess I'm saying, it could happen anywhere, and if it did happen in NYC, the media would be all over it.
      More people have walked on the moon than have scored an earned run off of Mariano Rivera in the postseason.

          Bauer would’ve been eaten alive in New York City. Hard, HARD pass on that clown.

            LA isn’t exactly a media desert. I suspect they’re all over it out there, too.

                    Not following.

                    Eta: if you're talking about the rampant misogyny in the press that has let Cuomo off easy? I'm not so sure a man facing allegations of felony rape & assault would enjoy such luxury, but to each their own.

                        Did you mean Bauer in general as a player would be eaten alive here?

                        I think I misunderstood what ojo was saying. With all do respect, Cuomo is just a man and it’s a recent example of this kind of behavior. It has nothing to do with politics.

                          It's not up for discussion. This has been the policy of the forum for 2 decades. We have made an exception to have a few political threads in a very defined area of the site and that's it. You may not agree with the policy, but, if you want to post here, you have to abide by it. Also, openly disagreeing with moderation is not permitted. You have been here as long as I have, you know the rules.

                              You’re right, I forgot about his Twitter bullying. I don’t know the psychology of it, but he said as a kid he was bullied.

                              I wanted him to be a Yankee, but glad he’s not. Though that said people behind closed doors do some different things together.

                                Of the ten teams that would have made the playoffs last year if the playoffs had ten teams, five of them are at least 5 games out of playoff position. The Yankees got the 5 seed last season because second place teams were seeded above third place teams, but if last year had the usual format we would have missed the playoffs, with Chicago and Cleveland being the wild cards, so the five teams in the previous sentence don't include us.
