Re: Andy tantrum video
Yeah i was just saying that its been said over and over that they never throw major players out for their actions when in fact they do. I agree, every umpire has to stand up for himself and decide how long that leash is going to be. Some have a longer leash than others for whatever reason.
There have been times when I took a little heat because I clearly made the wrong call, in those cases I let them say their peace and we move on. There is a huge difference between "that was a horrible f***ing strike" and "youre a horrible f***ing umpire." When it becomes personal then we have an issue.
