No, I don't.

They play baseball west of St. Louis? Like in a league?

Those of you who have never taken a leak in the pool, raise your hands.

Liars.

I didn't think what they did was a big deal. In bad taste? Just a bit, but nothing to get worked up over. But peeing in it when they know it is a public pool used by fans is just utterly classless.

Stay classy, LA

After the way the Diamondbacks reacted, I hope they did, and left a Mars bar in it for good measure.

It's no big deal.

... I can't tell you that with any certainty. It's just what I've heard.
...I'm also told that one Dodgers player


He based his entire rant on things that he heard. No proof whatsoever, and he obviously didn't take the time to confirm whether or not the rumors were true. And I see that the dude once worked for the L.A. Daily News, which is not exactly known for its journalistic integrity (it is the newspaper that gave Michelle Malkin her start).

Sounds like more whining from the D-bags.

Dodgers should be glad they're in MLB.

The NFL would have fined each player $50K, and NASCAR would have put the D-Backs in the Wild Card.

There's a school of thought that says it was a better league that played west of St. Louis in those days.

Obviously, the Dodgers did this horrendous deed, and they were escorted out by a gang of Mexicans who were visiting the state to dump some heads in the desert.

Because I'm sure that a pool in a sports stadium full of drunk people would be super clean otherwise.

Forgot to add how awful your blog is, subby.
 
2013-09-24 01:49:00 PM  
People think nothing of jumping in to water already filled with human bodies at the detritus that comes with it, but tell them that a small amount of a sterile fluid is in the pool and suddenly it's gross.

So I blew up last week on this and that was mainly because I wish LA would just fall into the ocean already. I've calmed down since then only to read this and get pissed off again.

Here's a guy who gets access to the Dodgers and has reported on them for ESPN, among other major organizations, breaking this story. I'm guessing he has some decent access to the club so I'm willing to buy into his info. And yes, who hasn't peed in a pool.

But add everything together from this season and how this Dodgers club carries itself and...

A) This shouldn't surprise anyone and

B) The reporter's lines about all of those Dodgers greats never doing crap like that is the damn truth. All those guys did was sully the historic Dodgers name and their own reputations. But their bosses don't have the balls to do shiat about it. Mainly because they're too busy counting money to care.

Also...  I'm also told that one Dodgers player, upon leaving the pool and heading back to the clubhouse, said to a ballpark security guard, "This is OUR house." Which apparently was meant as some sort of diss, but it kind of falls flat because it doesn't really even make sense.

It's not  their house. It's someone else's property. And where I come from, you don't disrespect someone else's property.

But I guess if you want to support what they did, that says more about you as a person than anything else.

There was a time when it meant something to wear a Dodgers uniform. It was a uniform that was worn with pride. It was a symbol not only of sustained excellence on the field, but also of a quiet dignity and professionalism.

Any Dodgers player or players who urinated in the Chase Field pool on Thursday also defaced the Dodgers name. They may have thought they were pissing all over the Diamondbacks, but really, they were pissing all over the Dodgers, and everything the Dodgers are supposed to be about. They were pissing all over the legacy of this franchise and the jersey they wear every night, although apparently they don't wear it quite as proudly as some of their predecessors from previous generations, or as proudly as some of their teammates still do today. They were pissing all over the legacies of Sandy and Jackie and the Duke.

The only reason you're willing to buy his crap is because you're still pissed that the D-bags didn't make it to the playoffs.

Which apparently was meant as some sort of diss, but it kind of falls flat because it doesn't really even make sense. The fact the Dodgers were wearing road grays that day and celebrating in the VISITING clubhouse would seem to suggest that it wasn't, in fact, their house.

Wow. A sports writer that doesn't understand trash talk. Amazing.
 
2013-09-24 02:37:35 PM  
initially i thought the Snakes were overreacting, and that was stupid.  it was stupid for us to ask them not to party on the field, and i thought it was funny that the Doyers said, "ok, well that pool aint' on the field, game on!"  and the dbacks looked petty, and mroe to the point, we collapsed in june.  if we cared that much, we should have been winning games instead of going on life support.

but the bragging about peeing in teh pool, that's another thing entirely.  it is undignified.  that's a new layer to it that is out of bounds.

and of course, the precedent is set.  whomever wins the West year in year out for foreseeable future, will find a way to rub it in the other teams' face, in the event they wrap it up away and not at home.

would vin scully approve?  there's your answer.

Vin Scully would approve the pool party but not the pool pissing I reckon.

Yep. Bragging about peeing in the pool is childish, but getting upset over "This is OUR house"? Come on

thats what im saying.  the field stuff was the organization looking like a bunch of jackoffs.  i had NO PROBLEM with the dodgers doing that.  but you don't pee in someone's pool.

Ha...not once but twice your only input was replacing Dbacks with D-bags.  Very clever.  I bet you were the head class clown in your 3rd grade homeroom your second time around.
 
2013-09-24 03:17:19 PM  
Oh, whatever. When they lose in the first round everyone will forget it.

I cannot believe that a bunch of guys who have been spoiled like children their whole lives acted like it.

As a Dodger fan, I have no problem with saying the Arizona Diamondbacks don't get the recognition they deserve.  In the 15 years of their existence, they've won 1 World Series Championship, 2 National League Pennants, and 5 NL West titles.  And any year they aren't in the running is a rare one -- this year they spent more time in first place than the Dodgers.
At the same time, they still struggle with establishing themselves in Arizona.  While they operate at an elite level, they only draw around 2.2 million fans a year, down in the lower third of baseball.  I think that tends to make them a little overprotective of their brand -- hence the basically unenforceable rules about visiting teams not celebrating in front of their fans, and asking Dodger fans to remove their caps and jackets.  They really are worried that potential ticket-buyers will be put off by the sight.
It's too bad, because you really have to be tougher.  Watching other teams celebrate titles, playoff spots, etc. on your field is something every team sports fan will have to endure from time to time.  You have to be able to take it in stride and move on.

I never thought they were a playoff team to begin with. I thought the Dodgers would be either a 100-win team or a .500 team with no in-between and I was right (on both counts when you think about it). I thought the Giants would be much better than they were and the Dbacks would be 2nd or 3rd depending on the Dodgers with 80-something wins.

I never liked our pitching (though my concern was misplaced as the bullpen failed far more than the starters). I didn't think we had enough offense (though I overestimated how much we actually had). There's just not enough talent to get a playoff spot. Simple as that.

Yup, another butthurt D-bags fan.

A friend who manages pools at several health clubs has repeatedly told me that she sometimes has people pee in the pool when the pH is too high.

In chlorinated and maintained pools, a moderate amount of pee is unnoticed - a "drop in the bucket", so to speak.

Holy shiat.  What a melodramatic douche.  This guy starts his article by saying "I agonized over whether to write this" as if he had been faced with an ethical dilemma of epic proportions.  Then he goes on to make his major announcement:  He heard from a guy that someone peed in a pool.

Well, farkin'-A, stop the presses, we got ourselves a scoop!  What courage it must have taken this writer to confront such controversy!  The world may never be the same.
