Manny Being Shawn Chacon

Rate this Entry
Manny Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox, apparently got into a dispute with a traveling secretary. Ramirez had asked the secretary for 16 tickets (huh?) for the Astors-Red Sox game, and when the secretary told him that might not be possible, Ramirez got angry. He yelled at him, "Just do your job!" and shoved him to the ground.

Now, why is this any different then what Shawn Chacon did? I don't want to hear anything about how it's different. I don't care how he brought violence to another human being, he brought violence one way or another. And I don't care who he attacked. Chacon attacked his general manager, Ramirez attacked the traveling secretary. Last time I checked, they are both people. Ramirez overreacted and threw a little hissy fit when he couldn't have his ridiculous request of having 16 tickets on game day. Obviously, because Ramirez is a star player and Chacon isn't, he gets different treatment. When Chacon was violent, everyone came down on him. When Ramirez does it, everyone says, "Oh, well...it's different though. All he did was shove a secretary to the ground." I don't care who he hit and how he hit him, the fact of the matter is that he hit him. Chacon was suspended and released, and his name is going to be tarnashed for a long time. For Ramirez, it's just Manny Being Manny. It's nice to know that there is a double standard for star players.

    "I don't want to hear anything about how it's different"

    Why ask a question and them quickly dismiss anything the opposing viewpoint would say?


    "It's nice to know that there is a double standard for star players."

    - Did you really not know that before this? It happens all the time, you should be used to it by now.

    And yeah, I do think it's different. But I wont tell you why because you obviously dont care to hear it.
