You Have Got To Be Kidding

The Dallas Morning News has a story today about the reinstatement of Ranger pitcher Kenny Rogers. As crazy as the whole incident has been, this sentence was the most amazing: "KDFW new director Maria Barrs said [cameraman Larry] Rodriquez was still receiving medical treatment and had yet to resume his duties with the station." Sheesh.

I am sorry but what is this teaching our kids? Hitting people is ok, and getting away with it is fine too? Also, how to milk your pain and suffering for all it's worth, even after a month. Wow.

He has to milk it to increase the amount of his future lawsuit.

since rogers got away with assault and MLB has approved of his actions, i hope the photog continues to milk this cow. KUDOS to dale hansen for refusing to show highlights or even talk about the game tonight in which rogers competed in. I LOVE IT

I believe some people are way over reacting. First of all he did not get away with the assault. He has been arrested and awaiting his trial. Like it or not that is the American way. You get arrested, you go to trial. Second of all, the only reason his sentence was reduced is because MLB did not follow the proper policies and procedures. That is like when a crack head gets off because a DA throws out the case because a police officer did not follow the proper policies and procedures. No one has a problem with that.

Speak for yourself. I know plenty of people that have a problem with it.

Rogers has gotten away with his actions so far and will continue to as long as people look to him as a baseball star instead of the scum he really is!

Don't you think "scum" is a little harsh? Premadonna, yes; arrogant,yes; conceeded, absolutely; along with self- centered, whinebag, and spoiled brat. But "scum"? And as far as KUDOS for Hansen, HE and others like him are one of the MAIN reasons we have these pro athletes that act like they do. If the "media" would quit making them out to be something other than what they are(lying, overpayed jerks playing childrens games)we wouldn't have to deal with their antics or overpriced tickets.

Scum. ooh that is harsh. Do you know him personally bored at work? He got angry.....which may or may not have been justified. Have you ever been angry? He did something he shouldn't have done. He was arrested..... his fine money is now going to some charity. He plays ball for a living but last I checked he is human - we are all human. None of us perfect. Unless by some chance - you happen to walk on water.

y'all are totally making me laugh. maybe you didn't read about the way he acted at the jailhouse when he went to turn himself in. Or maybe you didn't see that joke of a news conference that he gave just to tell everyone how sorry he was... I am so glad that the $50,000 fine is going to charity. I am sure that he doesn't care since he got a $50,000 check to go to the All-Star game.

Ok little children, think back to how many times this moron has gone out in a rage? Like 6 major times his entire career. Not including other controversies. This guy is not like average people, he has an anger management problem-more than likely mentally unstable. You gripe about the reporters, but the reporters were just doing there jobs. I have been on the field many times to give an interview, and low and behold he goes off on a reporter on the other side of the field. He is ridiculous, and if you think he is only human well then maybe you should consider the facts. I say he needs to be banned from baseball, fined $10 million and his punishment at the minimum should be 500 hours of community service.
