  1. I'm not convinced any games would be lost as of yet.

    But spring training probably gets delayed at the very least.


    Owners are assholes.

    If players dont take a hard line stance, owners will keep on pushing things more and more to keep players down and make them essentially indentured servants for longer.

    But players are assholes as well allowing owners to fuck over minor leaguers for as long as they have, BUT they arent members of the union so... Fuck them?

    After the impact of the shortened 2020 season, I believe MLB and MLBPA just not stupid enough to have a lockout in the 2022 and they better not try to test the patience and loyalty of the baseball fans. 

    will have ZERO bearing on this.

    Again, the timeline wasn't the point.

    What as the point?

    That Facebook has forgone any type of morality and decency for profits?

    That Facebook badly needs to be regulated like the telecom industry is relegated?  

    Or what exactly?

    He said "former".  Regardless, the exact timeline wasn't his point.

    Well only one former President or even current President has ever been banned, so whatever.

    I deleted (actually deleted) all my social media last year when they banned a former US President while keeping banana republic dictators. I barely used it for the 3 or so years leading up to it, so no real loss there..

    he actually wasnt banned until January of 2021 fwiw.

    Thanksgiving is quickly approaching so on that note, what size bird do you typically get?

    depends on how many asshole family members I get roped into cooking for.

    Of course, I meant I’m surprised it was never something required by MLB in general. Then again, I shouldn’t be since a few years ago when asked about their unlivable wages Manfred said Minor league baseball was more like an apprenticeship or an internship so the minimum wage/labor requirements basically didn’t apply. They need an MiLB players union.

    They have abused the antitrust exemption they have in the United States to get around shit like this for decades, tbh.
