BTW if you follow along you will know I am very fair in my assessment of umpires. I am quick to criticize as I am to defend.
You are equally speedy in both cases, but you certainly defend much more often than you criticize. Which is fine, and understandable.
It's easy to play the would-have game, but I completely disagree, and I am very sure the vast majority of people would have agreed with the decision to toss Dempster. Cowherd probably would have said he disagreed, just to stir the pot.
