    Why is the Lidle thread not in this forum?

    It certainly doesn't seem to belong in the "miscellaneous, non-baseball chatter" forum.

    As far as I know, Cory Lidle was a baseball player and even a Cincinnati Red.

    Why did the thread get moved?

    The thread started over there before Lidle's name was even mentioned. I agree...maybe the thread should be opened back up over here.

    It started their originally before anyone knew it was Lidle. I beleive the mods just figured it was best to have one place where everyone could discuss it.

    Seems like the baseball forums would be the best place to discuss the death of a baseball player.

    So why is it so hard to go over to the other thread to discuss? Last time I checked it was 90 responses deep. Seems to be doing quite well in its current location.

    Re: Why is the Lidle thread not in this forum?

    I started it when the news broke about the aircraft hitting a building. My first reaction was "oh no...not again."

    Fortunately...it wasn't a terrorist attack, just an accident.

    Unfortunately, there were deaths, and unfortunately, one was a known ballplayer, and former red at that...

    The story has taken a decidedly baseball twist since the original thread opened. I looked on both forums first before I looked on the non-baseball chatter site.

    Now if it had been a golfer piloting the plane then I could see it being relagated to the hinterlands.

    I respectfully disagree. Especially since the title of the thread makes no reference to Lidle.

    Indeed. I think most people on here are smart enough to know that a plane piloted by Corey Lidle crashed into a building today so they can put two and two together and realize that just perhaps the thread on non-baseball about the plane crashing might be about that very subject.
