Whiny Bitches in Netball and Baseball

Last week, the wide world of sports experienced a shockwave from Australia when their netball league added a controversial 2 point shot.  Players are upset because the league did not consult with them for the rule change, but after further research I can conclude that those players are being whiny bitches.

The current game is boring as shit – there’s on average 80 total goals in a match and all of them are shot within two feet of the basket.  The YouTube highlights are just plain awful and it was obvious within seconds that this was a much needed rule change.  In fact, I don’t know how netball was ever watchable to begin with, but apparently this rule change will take the style of play back to older days when it was more exciting…

You know what sport also used to be way more exciting than it is today?  America’s national pastime.  Did you know that baseball games are now 45 minutes longer than they were when the sport was popular?  Well now you do.

Manfred’s #1 priority since taking over as commissioner has been pace of play.  We’ve gotten mound visit limits, shorter commercial breaks, and this season we’ll have extra-inning baserunners and no more LOOGYs.  However, the single most obvious and pressing need, the PITCH CLOCK, keeps getting railroaded by the MLBPA.  If only Manfred had the same powers over his whiny bitches as the netball commissioner has, I might have friends that care about baseball again.

So spare me the grief from all those stupid covid negotiations.  The owners are crooked as hell no doubt, but that doesn’t mean we have to sympathize with these white millionaire assholes one bit.  If any of the Latin American players were throwing hissy fits online about ‘the system’, I would give them credence.  Instead, we get stupid catfights between Trevor Bauer and Aubrey Huff, two rich white guys who were blessed enough to join pay-to-play youth travel squads that real American athletes can’t afford.  Ian Desmond was right.

Meanwhile, they turn their backs on the fans.  They pissed away the opportunity to recapture a huge market with July baseball spotlighted across a very bored America.  I don’t care if they’re at more fault than wicked owners or not.  If they want sympathy from the fans, then they need to start giving back to the fans for once.

Not fighting tooth and nail to protect little shits like this dude on a 13 year, $330 million(!) contract.

Fuck outta here…  PITCH CLOCK – NOW!
