Splain this to me :

Why is it, at the end of every baseball game, the baseball players ONLY congratulate each other, on the SAME team, like a bunch of ****y

sons of bixches ?

But in pro football games, they freely congratulate each other on BOTH teams.

Baseball is supposed to be "America's Past-time", a "gentleman's sport", while football is supposed to be a tough man's game and violent sport.

Yet it's the freakin baseball bas!ards, that are too stinkin ****y to even go within a 100 feet of the other team at the end, while in football, they're not just congratulating and shakin hands - they're hugging, smiling, chatting, kissing the cheek, joking around, and even kneeling and praying together.

What's wrong with baseball, people ??

Well, for starters, baseball is boring. Watching baseball on TV is about as exciting as watching Marge Schot do a striptease. :puke:

Well, at least in baseball they know how to celebrate :

You win in baseball, and they spray you with champagne....

While you win in football, and they spray you with.....GATORADE ?!?!?!

Baseball certainly does not suck.

No, it sucks, he was right. Baseball has more problems than any other sport, and "traditionalists" (read: stubborn old fogies) will never fix them because it would "ruin the sport." :rolleyes:

If baseball stays the way it is, it will soon be passed by Nascar and hockey, and fade into nonexistence. At least hockey is actively trying to change and make their sport more enjoyable!

]']cus baseball sucks' date=' didn't you hear?[/quote']

Agreed. I used to be a big baseball fan when I was a kid...but I lost interest after the first strike (looooong time ago).

I logged on to MSNBC this morning and saw that the White Sox won the World Series...believe it or not...I had no idea who they were playing in the Series until I read the article today.

I stole this from George Carlin on the difference between football and baseball:

Baseball is a nineteenth-century pastoral game.

Football is a twentieth-century technological struggle.

Baseball is played on a diamond, in a park.The baseball park!

Football is played on a gridiron, in a stadium, sometimes called Soldier Field or War Memorial Stadium.

Baseball begins in the spring, the season of new life.

Football begins in the fall, when everything's dying.

In football you wear a helmet.

In baseball you wear a cap.

Football is concerned with downs - what down is it?

Baseball is concerned with ups - who's up?

In football you receive a penalty.

In baseball you make an error.

In football the specialist comes in to kick.

In baseball the specialist comes in to relieve somebody.

Football has hitting, clipping, spearing, piling on, personal fouls, late hitting and unnecessary roughness.

Baseball has the sacrifice.

Football is played in any kind of weather: rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog...

In baseball, if it rains, we don't go out to play.

Baseball has the seventh inning stretch.

Football has the two minute warning.

Baseball has no time limit: we don't know when it's gonna end - might have extra innings.

Football is rigidly timed, and it will end even if we've got to go to sudden death.

In baseball, during the game, in the stands, there's kind of a picnic feeling; emotions may run high or low, but there's not too much unpleasantness.

In football, during the game in the stands, you can be sure that at least twenty-seven times you're capable of taking the life of a fellow human being.

And finally, the objectives of the two games are completely different:

In football the object is for the quarterback, also known as the field general, to be on target with his aerial assault, riddling the defense by hitting his receivers with deadly accuracy in spite of the blitz, even if he has to use shotgun. With short bullet passes and long bombs, he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack that punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy's defensive line.

In baseball the object is to go home! And to be safe! - I hope I'll be safe at home

Yeah, who ever heard of a ROUND ball? Morons, balls are EGG shaped. :laugh:

Maybe yours are. Anyway, I'm not on this site to defend baseball but people have been saying for years that baseball would die and it never has, it never will. Remember in the early nineties when everyone was saying that basketball was the new national pastime? That sure didn't last. The NFL is a much better run league right now and so it is a better sport to watch but that doesn't take anything away from baseball as a game.

I've always thought baseball was boring to watch, yet fun to play. But this thread isnt about that, so....

I will preface my opinion with this, Mick; I don't know jack about baseball, the traditions, or the players. With that being said I think that Football being the physical sport it is, the players have great respect for one another (most do) because of how the game is played and the close contact during each play. In baseball there is very little physical contact, thus no potential for a career ending injury like there is in football on EVERY play. It's not that the players don't respect each other per say, it's just that football players respect each other more because they are risking more each time they step onto the field.

Football is more physically demanding, more team oriented, and takes more mentally to accomplish.

:2cents:

Good point, even in T-Ball the kids line up and slap hands as they go by in line, Why not the same as adults.?:applause:

Because football players see eachother once maybe twice a year while Baseball players play eachother 4 days in a row. No need to say good game to the same people everyday. It has absolutly nothing to do with being ****y

Let me go test your theory.

I'll look back at some of the "first games" played in some baseball series,

and see how they ended, compared to the last game of each series.

Just as I thought.

The first game of each and every series ended the same way as the last game.

No handshakes.

Yeah because of tradition. Not because of an "oh we'll see them tomorrow" mentality. There's no logical reason. Its just the way it has always been.
