    Yes, well put actually. Although the issue here for most of us was NOT whether we still supported Hatton but did he get cheated in some way. There was also an attempt to minimize the pain of a loss of one of our own.

    I agree.

    jaygatsby, don't pretend that you know what we are all thinking. Blanket statements like yours don't cover the people on this board at all. Don't try to tell us what we think and what we should think. Edited by: Colonel_Reb

    I just spent some time there and read a couple stories about Nash and Nowitzki winning MVP awards. Here is a portion of one of them.


    http://www.blackathlete.net/artman2/publish/Editorial_46/Who _Was_The_MVP_Again.shtml


    Who Was The MVP Again?


    NEW YORK -- I hate to say "I told you so", so I am not going to say it. Instead, I'll just think it out loud.In fact, the King said it for me this week, as we watched Lebron James do what MVPs do.
    James carried his team to the NBA Finals with a swagger only possessed by the truest pimps in the land. Tim Duncan has gotten his Spurs to so many NBA Finals that many of us have lost count.


    That, my friends, is what MVP's look like. They carry their teams to amazing heights and when the game is on the line, they deliver like Domino's Pizza. Dirk Nowitzki, an above-average player for the Dallas Mavericks, couldn't even carry his team past the "mighty"eighth-seeded Golden State Warriors, a team that was girly-slapped in the following round.
    I have never, in my life, seen an alleged MVP look so pathetic in such a crucial situation. I was just hoping he wouldn't break down and cry. Would the 22-year old Lebron James have given up on his team like that? Nope.

    Would <?:NAMESPACE PREFIX = ST1 /><ST1:CITY w:st="on"><ST1:pLACE w:st="on">Duncan</ST1:pLACE></ST1:CITY> just disappear in such an important game? He never has. Have you ever seen Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant search for the Tampax so quickly? Not in this lifetime.




    So, once again, I will say this to the grave:Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki were chosen as MVP's partly because they were white. They are damn good players and great guys, but they are clearly NOT MVP's.
    <?:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O /><O:p></O:p>
    The league has searched for a "Great White Hope" since Boston's Larry Bird, and Nash/Nowitzki are the closest they've come in 20 years....

    Articles like that make us sound pretty fair minded and balanced and impartial. I would say we write better than them as well but we can't take cradit for something we're expected to do anyway. [​IMG] Edited by: Maple Leaf

    hahah. yeah man, things escalated quickly. [​IMG]. it was weird. i've never been called out to fight over the internet. i didnt know what to do. i was like, "damn, i cant wuss out, or all the other posters will think im a punk." but then i realized we're on the internet so theres really no way to have an actual fight. so i decided to just "stare down" my computer monitor and pick a fight with it, all the while making aggressive facial gestures in its general direction....i think i won, but honestly its hard to say.


    while im here i'd like to apologize to White Shogun again. i took offence too quickly and i flew off the handle. to be honest, im new to this site and im still learning all the terminology. to tell you the truth, when i first read "sock puppet" i thought u were making a masturbation joke. i figured it out a little while later [​IMG]. anyhoot, i read some of your old posts and i enjoyed some of them and disagreed with some but i like the way you stay well mannered. plus you use words like "acerbic" which is good for the vocab. level of the site. cheers.


    also. sory to jaxvid. didnt mean to "flame". now i know what that means, and i'll try not to repeat it. cheers.

    Worthy of respect? Yep.

    But winning is even more worthy of respect.

    I sometimes think we Whites should quit telling our children all these little things we tell them about loosing being okay. Just a thought.

    Sports Illustrated is having a field day with this: they've pictures of Hatton face up from the canvas and a cartoon-like cut out of him battered and bruised. Here's an excerpt from SI's article "Players: "About 25, 000 of the palest Brits you ever saw descended upon the desert last week, and not one of them soaked up a single ray of badly needed sunshine as far as I could tell."

    And another: "Here [USA] social mobility seems more fluid - Mayweather was born to the same environment Hatton was (the flagging cities of Michigan) but had the ambition, or at least the need for self-gratification, to move to Las Vegas. Hatton, in a million years, would not leave Manchester."

    Yes, Mr. Richard Hoffer (dumb author), the similarities between Manchester and Detroit-like slums are startling. And since when does social mobility require geographical movement?

    The horror! Thousands of pale white Brits descending upon a city, proudly displaying their deformities.

    A few thousand of the darkest Africans descended upon the desert last week to attend the NBA All Star game, and not one of them obeyed a single law as far as I could tell.

    A lovely photo of Hoffer: http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2007/writers/the_bonus/03/08/jackpot.n ation/t1_hoffer.jpg

    Hoffer looks like the guy in high school who had no friends and was big into D+D. By the way isn't the kettle calling the pot black err white, last seen Hoffer doesn't look like Joe Namath.... [​IMG]

    Pavlik-Taylor gets a quarter page, probably written by an intern, and Hatton-Mayweather gets a feature story by one of SI's best hacks. The mountain of evidence grows a little more.

    That SI article is outright contemptuous and show's the unopposed free reign weak Jewfied hacks like this[guy looks like a wimp,they all do]have in writing racially insensitive,insulting articles about whites.He would'nt dare allude to stereotypes about Blacks or Mexicans in the same way.Ofcourse Brits who share their Anglo Saxon heritage with Germans and other Northern Europeans are just boring, pale and plain much in need of culture,diversity and nowhere near as exotic and physically attractive as the Black gangbangers,Mexicans and Puerto Ricans [​IMG]

    Well, this fight has brought out many trolls to gloat here on Caste Football.

    Johnnyboy, Tartan Pride and Guests are trolls, here for the purpose of antagonizing the regulars here. I suggest they be banned.

    Speaking of Jews in the media, I would like to correct the record of some past posts who stated/thought Rupert Murdoch, owner of News Corp. and now Wall Street Stock Exchange was a jew. HE IS NOT! He just gained ownership of Wall Street Stock Exchange. He is from Australia and is a Christian and one of the most successful and wealthy businessmen in the world.

    Regarding Hatton, his corner should have rained him in a little in the 8th and 9th rounds and implored him to be careful. Then go for broke in the 11th and 12th. I think he should have conserved his energy for those two rounds. His corner failed him and now he has to live with that devestation KO and so do I. The pain is subsiding though and the focus is on Pavlik and Maskalev.

    Wow, that "Hatton didn't lose" thread was really something. I finally took the time to read it all. Yes, the trolls are out, no doubt. Things have been increasingly smelly around here for a couple of months. Some have questioned whether trolls should be banned, and I say yes they should be banned. If they try to disguise themselves with intelligent posts and arguements, that is one thing, but the flamers and baiters have got to go.
