I find it surprising you find it okay for grown men to do things you would punish your child for. It's completely silly, and I cannot in good conscience condone that type of behavior. Argue with the ump, that's one thing. But throwing things and destroying property is crossing the lines, and does not portray a positive, professional adult image that I would want children to see.

I would totally agree with everything you said in 99% of situations, but I see baseball managers as different animals. It's an entertainment setting, and yes their behavior is out of bounds and if my daughter did that I'd whop her little butt, but it's just a different situation.

No kidding...

In baseball, that little tirade will probably get him promoted to the 'bigs.

How do you feel about fighting in hockey? I teach my son not to fight unless he has to, but we go to hockey games and he sees these guys fighting all the time. It's part of the game and he understands that.

To be honest, I don't watch it, but I don't believe that fighting should be "part of the game" unless that game is, well, fighting. It's not called boxing, it's called hockey, or baseball, or basketball.

I agree with Knapp, it CAN be part of their Job sometimes.....When a team is getting slaughtered, sometimes a manager may do this to fire his team up, get them going, even a break of the other teams momentum if they had some going.

It's like in Hockey, after a team scores a goal, the enforcer on the team that got scored on will start a fight to get his team going and fired up. happens a lot.

Nah, I'll bet he's sweet as pie at home. In fact, he may even be whipped.


That would explain all the aggression on the field. ;-)
