Got manners?
last modified: Sunday, November 21, 2004 (7:43:41 PM)
What is happening out there. First my beloved Pistons get into a clash with the Pacers and the baka fans make things 100% worse. Why do people feel they have permission to act so poorly? Another black mark against Detroit, and we surely did not need it. There seems to be a growing trend for fans to feel it is okay to verbally abuse and sometimes physically abuse (throwing objects) players. Didn't their mommas teach them manners?

Poor manners seem to be plaguing our cel community too. I have read many blogs lately of collectors being harrassed or criticized with the end result being people leaving us. Again, whatever happened to good manners?

Oh well...that being said...please allow me to announce my latest additions. Please check Azumanga Daioh, Sailor Moon inners, and Ultra Maniac if you so desire.

Just read about the suspensions. While it is certainly true that Artest is a thug and NBA players make insane amounts of cash, the NBA needs to come down hard on Detroit and cut off all alcohol sales until folks come forward in agreement about who was throwing stuff. As long as they revoke tickets and put the guy in prison who started it, banning Artest for the season is fair. The man was walking away and someone decided he was untouchable as a fan and threw something. Most people *would* rush a self-serving punk who did that. If not, then get ready to see a Monica Seles-like incident within five years.
