100% agree with the call to toss Harper from this game.

He was safe, but he shouldn't have tossed the helmet and Buchnor shouldn't have tossed him

Buchnor should have tossed him. Harper losing control again.

100% should have been tossed.  On a close play you can't slam your helmet down even if you are not arguing.

I can't wait for this kid to mature and I don't mean that as a shot.  I respect the fact that he is 18.

Bullcrap players spike their helmets all the time after getting a close out

Buchnor's an itchy trigger finger ego maniac

90% of the time a player slams his hat on a close play he gets tossed...100% for a rookie.  Yes, players slam their hats all the time but when they do on a close play they get tossed.

19

And I'm concerned that he simply won't mature unless someone is stern with him. It's simply not tolerated. It looks bad on him. It looks bad on the team.

That's not true at all




CB Buchnor is a ego maniac, he tosses guys all the time whether they deserve it or not

You are expecting too much.  Just think about when you were 19.

Yes, player spike their helmets all the time...they don't on bang bang plays.  If they do, they get tossed.

Harper hit 2 home runs in this game, his team was up by four. There is a time and a place to express your frustration with a GIDP, but that is certainly not the time.

I have no sympathy for Harper losing control of his emotions in that situation. Totally different than GIDPing when your team is behind or when you've had a rough night.

Right, he shouldn't have tossed the helmet, not the proper response. But I don't think tossing him was the proper response either

Seriously, this is silly - Harper was past the base and spiked the helmet - there's no reason to toss him. Unless of course you're CB Buchnor swinging your big dick

If he had slammed his helmet on an easy 4-6-3 he would not have been tossed (it still would not have been right).  It was because it was a bang bang play.

Frustration isn't something you plan for expressing.  You don't script the showing of it.  It's spontaneous, or else it's fake.

Meh whatever

Bryce probably deserved it -  I just cannot stand CB Buchnor, he's right up there with Angel Hernandez - constantly making himself the center attention.

I sometimes feel Harper could go Leonard Little on people and he wouldn't get criticized by some on WNFF.

I know this from personal experience - I nearly got tossed from my skeeball league for taking my umbrella to a shuffleboard table after a bad game. But I also know that you can improve your control, and getting tossed from this game will help Harper do that.

Anything involving that clown CB Buchnor is going to get a negative reaction from me. He's just an jerk
