was riding with my dad yesterday, and listened to flubmeister murphy. some flub fan called and said that he was kicked out of the urinal for booing. he said an usher warned him not to boo. the guy booed again, and was promptly escorted from the smelly confines. if this is true, i can't immagine why anyone would root for a team owned by jerks that intimidate their fans. just another reason why i will never work for the flubune company.

He got booted out for that? Im not really surprised.
I do know that the Cubs and their players are very sensitive to booing and basically, not being loved lately. Theyve been used to the Improper and Conflict-of-interest love between the Media and themselves for 20 something years are not sure how to react to being booed. Im sure very very soon WGN will be doing things to turn the sound down on the crowd mikes, so as to lessen the booing, much like FOX did during the All-Star Game Introductions in 2003 at Comiskey. Anyone remember the sound of 45,000 BOOOOOOOOOs for the cub players? It was one of the more Amazing and Spontaneous reactions Ive ever seen. Unfortuneately, MLB and FOX didnt want to tarnish the everyone-loves-the-cubs image. total bs.

What right do they have to kick anyone out of the park for booing the Scrubs? Are visiting team fans allowed over there? Give me a break. I can't believe this.:o:

This is the second time we've seen this accusation recently isn't it???? I have a feeling it's all bs and if somewhat true the fan probably was being an ass which got him kicked out rather than the booing.

If true, this means The Urinal will be very empty this weekend. I'm betting that even the wives, girlfriends, boy toy friends and "husbands" of Flub players will be shown the door.......:tongue:

I agree with this. They would have to kick a lot of people out for booing. I am curious. Did Murphy challenge this guy? One thing I give Boers and Bernstein credit for is that they don't accept everything that is said on the air.

I had posted a story last week or the week before about a caller to B&B on the Score who claimed that he was booted from the Cubs vs. Mets game for making critical comments about the Cubs while wearing a Mets rain jacket and some Cub fans complained about it and threatened the guy with harm (although he claimed he was a Cubs fan, too). My initial reaction, like other people here (as well as B&B) was that his guy was full of it, that he had to be obnoxious or drunk, although he claimed that he wasn't either.

Now, I'm not saying that this guy was telling the truth. However, the thing that I thought made the story interesting and made the story worth posting was that some Cubs ticket season holder who was unrelated to this guy but witnessed the whole event, contacted the Score and vouched for the Mr. Mets raincoat's story.

that is NOT why he got kicked out. ive been to wrigley a few times (i think they're 1-2 when im in attendance?) this year and my cousin (realistic cubs fan) booed cub players more than a handful of times and was VERY loud about it. of course everytime he booed, i took advantage of the opportunity and booed louder than he did. ushers were all around us and not one of them said a thing.


that one fan was probably cussin and drunk while he was showing his displeasure.

A baseball game ticket is a "license" to attend. There are terms and conditions on the license. I'm quite certain that said terms and conditions do not preclude booing. While I'm not a big fan of the "sue everybody" mentality that has overtaken this country, I would make an exception here. :D:
