    I hate PC garbage as well, but that wasn't locker room talk, or just Un-PC. That was disgusting, vile and hateful. The N word was used several times. I've been in plenty of locker rooms, and heard lots of locker room talk. never heard any talk like that, ever.

    Think an entire offseason is enough time to adequately explain things to his son?

    I don't see how making comments in a public forum is anything remotely like locker room talk, where there is an expectation of privacy.

I bet its on the same page as the "Aaron Harang--Headhunter and Public Enemy" illustration.

    Most sports public forums are not like RZ. It's very much like a locker room and there's no political correctness

    What locker rooms are these?

    For starters, I really don't see where locker rooms are excluded from making hateful, bigoted or racist comments. But let's set that aside for a second...

    When you make comments in a group of people, you're limited to only that group of people hearing the comments. When you make comments on a forum or on a social media site that is not protected, you literally are making comments that anyone in the world can see. It's not remotely the same.

    At least the Cards lost so we could debate the merits of hate speech (something that I thought had no merits but evidently I was wrong)

    Re: At least the Cards lost

    And it may be time to remind us all of what MikeThiery advised us as we going into the off season:

    "The amount of butt hurt in this forum right now is on comedic levels. Taking your anger out on the Cards for pulling out a victory while your team FAILED to just win one game at home makes some of you look like sore losers. Accusing the Cardinals of cheating and it contributing to their wins makes some of you look low class. Have fun brooding in the off season. " MikeThiery

    It looks like we will have at least have company brooding in the offseason.

    Every day the Cardinals lose is a good day.

    Yesterday was a good day.

    It would have been hard to see them go to 2 straight World Series.

    Re: At least the Cards lost

    I haven't checked the box scores to verify my eye test...but could it be that Holliday's "slide" worked as a reverse squirrel rally this postseason? How many runs were scored by SF and STL after that incident?

    Re: At least the Cards lost

    I've grown tired of the rivalry with the Cards.

    Can we spend next season hating the Giants, instead? It'd be nice to face a bitter rival ~6 times a year, instead of 6 times a month.

    I agree there's a lot of differences but the language used is not one of them. If there's no moderation in a site, expect the speech to be locker room quality. It didn't surprise me at all, nor was it anything I hadn't been exposed to before
