Re: unsportsmanlike conduct should result in an ejection EVERY time
I feel like the umpires are in a tough spot. They shouldn't have to deal with all the bs, but at the same time, they'd be given shit for tossing someone. Some people feel that the umpires shouldn't have a big influence on a game, so if they toss someone and the replacement doesn't pick up the slack, guess who's to blame? A precedent should have been set long ago, in regards to respecting umpires and them tossing players. Then again, there are shitty umpires, even in pro sports. To play devils advocate, if both teams are giving an umpire shit, there's a good chance the umpire isn't doing a good job, but they don't realize it. "Redheaded ginger ####" isn't racist to be, but it most definitely is a personal attack.
