  • Why do we even bother?

    TO THE GIANTS FANS, AND GIANTS FANS ALONE, ON BBF:

    I don't know about you guys, but it annoys me so much to see all of the Barry-haters badmouthing him and not calming down and listening to reason (at least that's the way I see it). Do any of you have any suggestions for dealing with those posts? Maybe try to ignore them or something?

    Let the idiots be idiots. They don't have any clue as to what logic and evidence is. I just ignore them because it's not worth my time.

      Every now and then I feel compelled to respond to a few of the more idiotic comments about Barry, but on the whole, it's a waste of time since nobody is going to change their mind.

      What's interesting to me is how ignorant people are about Barry, particulary how he is as a teammate. Setting aside Jeff Kent (ask his Dodger teammates about him), Barry seems to get along pretty well with his teammates. Heck, even Pierzinski seemed to like Barry. But time and again we read posts about what a cancer he is. People seem to get their info just from SI and sportstalk radio.

      This isn't to say that Barry's a saint. Some of the bad press he gets he deserves, other's (Like Rick Reilly's) he doesn't.

      So for the most part, I just shrug it off.

          what i try to do is address misinformation.
          i have, though, been known to occasionally get sucked into um, a discussion of more than just that. :o

            Yeah ignore them. I will go into the yahoo baseball room and people will see my name and call me names that I cant mentiion here for I will get banned, lol. And without saying a word they do that. I take it for what they are Haters. Any one would love to have him on their team. And if people say no they are lying. Now that its getting to be 2006 yankee fans are hoping to get bonds on their team before he retires, and 3 years ago they said no way. Just goes to show ya how peoples attitude change if they think they have a possiblity of getting him, no matter how far fetched.

                I was about to post something, well, inciting, but I realized that it wouldn't do any good. Very few people listen to the other side of the argument.

                  This is classic example of just plain fallacious thinking. Can you give actual evidence that his head has enlarged? I mean real evidence not just your "opinion". Mearly making assertions is not evidence You argument is a flawed argument. It's called "appealing to popularity".

                      Yeah, just shrug those type of posts off. Just ignore it all. It's worked up to this point hasn't it.

                        Honus Wagner Rules: Can you give actual evidence that his head has enlarged?

                        while bonds still wears the same hat size that he did while at university, his head is larger... but not because of human growth use.

                        one of the myths of growth hormone is that it makes bones grow longer or larger.
                        it doesn't. at least not in post-pubescent humans.
                        sustained use of large amounts of growth hormone will cause bone density and affect one's mandible and other facial features. (look at arnold schwarzeneggar in his early 20s: extra-protruding brow, gapped teeth, extenbded jawline).

                        it is quite normal and in fact expected that the occipitalis and frontalis gain size when the neck and shoulder are put through rigorous exercise. this causes the look of an enlarged head.
                        but the perception that bonds' head has grown dramatically larger is just that -- a perception. the fact that his skin is dark and also is smooth (shaved head) adds much to the illusion of a dramatically enlarged head.

                          wogdoggy: lay down with dogs wake up with fleas. balco being the dog...


                          is it your claim that all athletes who used balco products are dirty?
                          if yes, the federal government investigators disagree with you.
                          if no, what is it that you actually meant to write?

                          there is fact, and then there is fiction...

                            which takes us to quite a few incorrect notions that Sultan_1895-1948 has about growth hormone, steroids - specifically "the clear" and "the cream", balco, bonds, the federal investigation, the federal grand jury, and its findings.

                              bondsgirrrl: Yeah ignore them.


                              rather than ignore, i use facts on 'em.
                              while facts do not exonerate any player suspected of drug use, they do pop myth bubbles and correct the misinformation. not stop it, of course, but correct it.
                              sometimes, some people continue to use misinformation no matter what factual evidence is presented.
