    Never been booed off stage, and things have never been better. But thanks for being a shining example of what being ****** looks like.

    I just don’t care enough to figure it out or remember. Whoever it is can break their pinky toes.

    As a teacher, I've had not just a whole hierarchy of bosses, but also by default hundreds of people who believe they're your bosses or at the very least should be(generally called parents). And expectations that were way higher than anything any NBA player has ever faced. I could lose the right to ever teach again over things way more minor than what NBA players have done. I mean, rape accusations generally ensure you don't get to be a teacher anymore, but when have they stopped an professional athlete from playing? How many dudes in the NBA have DUIs? Again, I could lose my provincial teaching license over one.

    I'm not sure we have quite that level of rapport because that isn't a detail but cool.

    Agree that this thread is dumb. Mostly because I don't understand how people can white knight about being unrepentant dicks.

    Yup. Been discovered Locke is into ideologies. In his mind we're all guilty by association.

    Not a soul here has advocated booing or even the booers.

    I was saying it tongue-in-cheek. Locke has come out as a passionate communist.

    I wouldn’t personally boo, but I feel like if fans want to cheer or jeer, than that’s their decision and I am okay with it. I would take issue if it crossed over into racism, sexism etc in any type of sport however.

    I know exactly what you mean, but I also feel this is very nearly a dangerous philosophy. It feels only one step removed (because booing is anonymous and limited in time and space) from the "I love you, therefore I beat /psychologically abuse you" argument.

    It's nearly the same argument for why spousal abuse was tolerated for so long in this country: it's the idea that love and hate are essentially the same emotion; we can't really love unless we're also capable of intense damage to the object of our love (because we love them so much and so strongly want them to please us).

    Ultimately, as Numbs pointed out, it's all about us and our desire for control.

    I believe this is fundamentally viewed as racism, however, as it is regarded as a template from a bygone era, where the working class purchase a ticket to play out their inner fantasies of being slave masters and where the players will dance when asked, if they want to survive.

    Whether or not it’s stupid to get worked up about booing, or whether or not it’s a huge atrocity with deep meaning if someone did boo.

    People are conflating the idea that it’s appropriate to have thicker skin with the idea that we condone booing.

    Ergo, a guy tells a girl that she’s ugly. She pulls out a knife and stabs him. Her response was not justified, but that doesn’t make him right. You see where this is going. Sometimes there are situations that aren’t black and white and both parties are wrong.
