 I got some inside information. 34 kicked out that's somewhat normal. Mostly for smoking weed, Fighting, only 1 guy was yelling racist stuff and through Peanuts at him.
according to the red sox GM, 0 people were thrown out for racist stuff.

9 were thrown out for a fight, 20 for "drunkenness", 2 for weed, 2 for language that was specifically not racist, 1 for throwing peanuts at Jones.

Kennedy said 2-3 people have been tossed for language "in the past year or so"

Now you can be encouraged by this, but you must also understand that while the 2-3 in the past year quote is probably meant to be a positive it also means that they dont toss most of the racist ****s, which is obviously distressing.

Jones said ~60 were saying racist ****, which is almost certainly an exaggeration but not one you can blame him for.



 Tp Sports for the detailed analysis, however who knows what's true from the PR angle.

I was called the N-word a handful of times tonight, Jones said disgustedly.

This day and age this alleged racist tirade would have been recorded and the person would have been doxed by now, so this did not happen. Jones is lying.

So you know ahead of time that someone is going to be dropping the N bomb at a player and have your phone out ready to capture it?

C'mon....   ::)   Stuff still flies under the radar and isn't captured electronically this day & age.

Every little confrontation that springs up is videotaped. "Handful of times", you mean to tell me you believe someone used that word, even once, at a public ballpark, and nobody got their phones out? I like facts, evidence or reliable eyewitnesses, Jones has none of those things on his side. Just a bunch of SJW's quick to pat themselves on the back and condemn racism. Well guess what? I condemn it too, when it actually exists.

Where's the video of the peanut throwing? The dudes smoking weed? The fights? The abusive language?

There were 30 ejections. How many were videotaped? Any? Doesn't that disprove your point?

We are talking about multiple instances of an individual using the N-word, that's what Jones said, not me. If a person were to throw peanuts, then toss a beer, and then hurl a pizza at a player, I would expect at least the tail end of that to be recorded by someone seeking to provide WorldStar with more content. I would expect some eyewitnesses to step forward and say, "Yeah, this person was throwing a ton crap at the player", but alas, none of that has happened.

Michael Smith and Jamelle Hill just went off on racism jn Boston and America.

Ooooph! That was a schelacking. On national TV it was just said that... Boston is the most racist city. It doesn't take courage to condemn this. Black players who go to Fenway know to expect this. All the people who said nothing are just as bad. Unacceptable is emptiest word in the English language. You don't have to use the n-word to be racist.

Bad look for our city right now. Funny thing is this is the most I heard Boston mentioned on Sportcenter in God know's how long.

This fits perfectly into the narrative that ESPN has been pushing for years. We knew they were going to take it and run with it, regardless of it being fake news.

Bomani Jones is a fringe personality who has gone on record saying Stevie Wonder isn't blind. Jamelle Hill and Michael Smith have the 6PM Sportcenter slot which is one of the bigger platforms and sports and culture right now. It was a bad look for our city.

Jones up second, let's see how fans respond when he's announced...
"Young man, you have the question backwards." - Bill Russell

"My guess is that an aggregator of expert opinions would be close in terms of results to that of Danny." - Roy H.

Proud of this city.

EDIT: An ovation that went from sitting to standing and grew in intensity until Jones stepped out and acknowledged it.

EDIT: Sale soon whistles a fastball behind Machado to resume the Pedroia-Machado hostilities.

Good for Jones, makes up a story, get national headlines and attention. No evidence, no witnesses, but some people just love the narrative so much that they will just sort of plow through the details.


Now a standing ovation at Fenway Park. Incredible. Lol. I just have to laugh this crap off at this point. See racism where it isn't there or just flat out make it up. That's America in 2017

Posters on SoSH who were there and who heard it confirmed it. There may or may not be a whole lotta racism being seen elsewhere that isn't really there in the world, but in this case it actually was there, Jones was called the n-word by some fan.

Speaking of invented narratives used to push pre-existing grievances...
