Can anyone tell me why this is acceptable:

DON BRENNAN: Speaking of being on the road, I'm on my way to Frisby tires on just 3O of them. Excuse me a second. "HEY LADY. DON'T LEAN ON YOUR HORN AND SCOWL AT ME. THERE'S A REASON I'M DRIVING SLOWLY, YOU B---H." I don't see the Spezza and Alfredsson injuries slowing the local heroes down too much. They can plod along well enough to stay in the thick of things playing the Little General's system.

Just thought I'd ask.

  4. Yeah I saw that and was...wow.

    But, I guess Tim Baines and Rick Gibbons are ok with misogyny as long as it sells newspapers.


  5. Tim Baines gets absolutely giddy writing about wrestling... as an adult. He's certainly not going to reign in Mr. Don.

    That four-person exchange is always unreadable. I just skip it.


  6. Multiple people were involved in this being written and printed. I can understand if it was all written and printed by the same person, but more than 4 people thought this was a good idea. Alarming to say the least. I don't even get it.
