all I'm saying is if this is something that bothers you than take a step back and realize there are much worse things than an athlete saying a certain four letter word.
ok, then never be bothered by anything the rest of your life...because SOMETHING is always worse

I can't believe anyone thinks this is acceptable behavior in front of 40,000....*sigh*

sports are pretty much a PG environment...when I take my 7/9 year old girls to a Panther game, I expect them to hear damn, hell, etc....but when the GD and F bombs start, thats offensive.

Dude that's terrible logic.
 
By your logic, I could punch your mom in the face, and it would be OK with you, because hey, I could have hit her with a metal baseball bat.

No what I'm saying is that if one person uttering a word (that is taboo or whatever) bothers you, just realize that it is not the worst thing in the world and getting bent up about it is ridiculous.
-Especially about hearing curse words at professional sports events because its a given that you will ...learn to deal with it.

It was classless and anyone that tries to argue against that is ridiculous.

You can't go anywhere in Philly without hearing that kind of language. That is especially true when it involves sports.
 
But obviously he said, "World Phucking Champions," not "World F*cking Champions." So, it's probably ok.  Also, there is a high likelihood that he was drunk.
 
All joking aside, he obviously shouldn't have said it, but he did. I'm over it.
 
I let an 'F' bomb slip out from time to time, even in situations when I shouldn't. It happens. You don't have to be super emotional for it to happen, sometimes it just does. My dad is constantly telling me to watch my mouth at Panthers games and I don't even realize I'm saying anything.

There is a difference in a fan yelling it in the heat of the moment, and a star athlete saying it (premeditated) to 40,000 fans.
 
Whatever happened to having class? Seriously it bothers me that there are so many people who don't have a problem with this.

I call bull****, You don't get up to a mic and say the F word in front of tens of thousands of fans while on TV.  Or have you done that, if so, my apologies.  And look at him, with that little smirk on his face, it didn't slip.

Yeah seriously.  That arrogant little smirk made it worse.  Dude knew he was going to say it.  He reminds me of the private school popped collar mercedes driving teenagers I knew when I was in high school.  Typical dbag that figures he can get away with anything.

Dude don't even try that. I'm a liberal, very secular, left winger and I thought this was extremely classless. Don't try and make this into a "the right wing Christians are whining" argument bc it won't work. Anyone who has a shred of class should be mad at Utley.

I curse like it is nobody's business, but there is a time and place for it and that is def not one of them.  It looked very premeditated too.


Does the first amendment apply to this time and place?
The greatest boon in the popularity of Chapel Hill sports was the advent of cash registers that automatically figure change.

Just because the 1st amendment says you CAN say something, that doesn't mean you SHOULD say it.
 
Gamer and Early, I really hope you all don't have kids.  If you do, I'm sure they're the ones in class being snotty brats that are always mouthing off to the teachers who already get enough crap.  "But my daddy says I can say anything, because of the 1st amendment! So **** you teacher!"

I never implied he Utley has no right.  He can say what he wishes.

I just implied our society is in sad shape if this is acceptable to speak like this.

In Philly, it's not that big of a deal.  That's why the Philly fans don't understand that this was classless.  That's why I mentioned the 5 second delay.  In Philly, nobody cares.  Outside of Philly though, we all understand that this wasn't right.

And yeah... leave the politics out of it.  I'm probably one of the most liberal posters on this board, and I think it was pretty damn bad.

Per Sporting News Today.....

"Parents with children in the stands, however, were not as concerned.  "They hear worse stuff in school", Ivette Centeno told the Philadelphia Inquirer."

Lmao, what did the sporting news do, ask every parent in the stands?  Of course, that's the typical way to play it off, "they hear worse stuff in school".
