Fair point. I still think the backlash is f’ed. I couldn't imagine a female comic getting the same treatment - roles reversed.Is it asking? Or is it asking and then receiving permission?
As soon as they sat down in his room, still wrapped in their winter jackets and hats, Louis C.K. asked if he could take out his penis, the women said.
They thought it was a joke and laughed it off. “And then he really did it,” Ms. Goodman said in an interview with The New York Times. “He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”
Well it’s a pretty weird thing to do. And the point I was making in my original post was that he was disgraced for jerking off in front of multiple women, not for telling un-pc jokes like he had been for years with no backlash.Fair point. I still think the backlash is ******. I couldn't imagine a female comic getting the same treatment - roles reversed.

As an old prick and traditionalist, i can,t believe we are talking about this. It,s part of the game. Looks like no swear words were said. no racism or anything else.Surely the umpdFooty fans have been put on notice after a Richmond cheer squad member was given a three-game ban for calling an umpire a “green maggot’’.
Tigers’ cheer squad chiefs have now sent a memo to members, warning of bans or other disciplinary action if they criticise umpires or players.
“We ask that cheer squad members refrain from making any derogatory comments towards anyone, be it on field or off,’’ the memo said.
“Doing so may result in disciplinary action being taken by the cheer squad, the club or the AFL.’’
The banned fan has claimed he was threatened with a 12- month ban for yelling: “Be consistent, you green maggot!’’
The cheer squad memo says the fan’s comment was found “offensive and bullying”.
Is this really bullying or just a cup of home truths being served to the umpires?
What's wrong with wanting consistency.......and maggots aren't filthy animals. They get a raw deal.
As an old prick and a traditionalist, i can,t believe we are talking about this.Was there any swearing? Come on.Every week, a third of the stadium would be banned for this.Imagine the old WAFL days when with one umpire East and Sth Fremantle were playing each other( read wharfies). That,s how fans get there rocks off.Passion is what it,s about! I,m sitting here shaking my head.Is this a joke?
More Lefty PC Perpetually Offended SJW rubbish.
Twitter is a perfect platform for celebrity types and 'thought leaders' who have nothing better to do with their plentiful time than look for something to be offended about.I don’t mind it. I ref junior sport and have noticed abuse (in general) has increased and intensified in the last ten years ...I suggest twitter/social media has a part in it. Happy a standard is being set.
Hahahahha, so you don't think extreme umpire abuse at senior and junior football levels reduces the amount of kids who become umpires? Is that genuinely your opinion? For real???????The way to have decent umpires is a consistent rule set and full time umpires with accountability.
What you just said is a genuine crock of ****. I see drunk idiots hurling abuse at players and teams constantly. Look at the shortage of players we have in the country...
It doesn't work. I'm also on committee who get to deal with the abusers. Sometimes they are shamed and apologise. The rest of the time they lose it and attack the person who dare to question them.Twitter is a perfect platform for celebrity types and 'thought leaders' who have nothing better to do with their plentiful time than look for something to be offended about.
The best way to turn around the behaviour of the bullying/ugly parent who abuses an umpire at a junior sporting event would be for others to confront them, physically if need be. Embarrass them in public. Shame them in front of their own children. They wouldn't do it again I'm tipping.
But I think an obscured voice at an AFL match calling out 'green maggot' is a slightly different proposition to the ugly parent at a local sporting event, where voices are clearly discernible.
Exactly. The fact cheer squads are enforcing standards on behaviour should be welcomed by anybody who is part of a cheer squad or has family members part of a cheer squad (seriously, I have a younger cousin who used to be part of Richmond's cheer squad since her young teens, so this should be seen as a positive that kids are part of an environment with some standards). I hate censorship, but c'mon... it's a piddly three-game ban for someone who was likely ruining the mood for everyone else, so they were put on notice to clean it up.People do realise this ban has been imposed by Richmond not the AFL.
