And it was about a basketball player and this is a basketball forum. So anyone with the same name as anyone bad can't be talked about? It's not like this place is buzzing with chatter at the moment.
People are getting way to sensitive these last few years.
My reaction to it was what in the hell did it have to do with the Boston Celtics and why was it on the Celtics board? And while I'm at it, why does everything CHL posts revolve around race? Locking that thread made a good deal of sense imo.
