So says the Associated Press:

The Cleveland Indians today signed free agent closer Bob Wickman to a one-year deal, two months after the club declined to pick up his five (m) million-dollar option. Terms of the deal weren't immediately available. Wickman made six-point-three (m) million dollars last year in his fourth season with Cleveland.

Moderators: Could you possibly lock this thread before it gets out of hand. I find the term "Injuns" offensive and racist as I have Native American ancestors. Thank you in advance.

I find the use of the vulgar term "screw" in your screen moniker offensive. Please, give me a break!

The word "screw" is not an ethnic slur. I was hoping that in the year 2004 we were past using derogatory language.

Unless if you're an inflexible PC'er, "derogatory" is based on intent. So are you stereotyping JRIG as a bigot? I would hope that people nowadays would not slap labels on other people based on what they say, look like or where they come from (or even who they root for) without knowing the person or considering the context of a conversation.

This inflexible response to a percieved slight and rush to label are the characteristics of people who do not care to spend the effort to fully investigate the situation and/or are incapable of anything other than their own small view of the world. I.E. - Lazy and Stupid.

Did you even think of asking JRIG why he used that term? Or did you just see a single word and conveniently decide to lump on all of your stereotypes?

Again ...........

:whatever:

I was just joking man. Just having a good laugh and demonstrating the absurdity of political correctness in today's America.

Too bad. I wanted him. But we have Walker so we're all set.

Um, "fatass" is a derogatory term against obese people and you have offended an entire section of America. Please have the moderators lock this thread at once!:D:
