At least you didn't add player pics as proof.

I fixed the quote a little but I agree. Be a social warrior elsewhere.

@Lawofthewest and Jack....I had teams like yours at one time. My perspective has changed and my team themes have changed.

It is only being "discussed" because Ian came on the forum whining about it.

Now we're being told to 'fuk off' by coaches who haven't even been here 6 months?

Maybe we'll get the lock before people get warmed up.

Clearly it's a woman's fault in the first place. If lawofthewest's mother was a better parent and raised him with any decency and respect then this wouldn't be a problem.

Can this thread be locked, I want my time back.

Just frustrated by, uh, blurred lines. I talked to a lot of friends of all manner of backgrounds, and after getting feedback that converges on "mildly risqué" rather than "mildly offensive" I've decided I'm not retiring them unless an admin tells me to. But the next time I skirt the lines, I'll do it in a different direction. Hmmm... a "Barely Legal" team, where every player has a unique and carefully thought out name, like "Lineman #3" (not necessarily a lineman or player #3), or "Asdfghjkl;" or something?

Good point. But depends if that bothers someone who notices. Debatable if it is an insult.

Definitely don't do the lineman#3 dull route! That way leads to madness.

I would agree that teams shouldn't be locked down automatically. It's open to abuse, and it also, in general, discourages some genuine complaints while only encouraging trollish complaints (because, in borderline cases, polite reasonable people are discouraged from doing things that will annoy others, while the converse is also true).

The team theme is childish and sexist. But as far as what's offensive enough to get banned goes, it isn't even close. It also looks more like a harmless parody of sexist views than a genuine expression of them.

If the report button is there people are going to click it when they're offended. They should be free to do this. You can't tell someone else whether to be offended by something. But at the same time not every instance of offence requires change. That's why there's admin review. As far as that goes the system already works.

All of these things should not be difficult to work out. But apparently it's impossible to have any sort of discussion about gender/discrimination/offense issues without it devolving into childish name calling. In fact I'm not even sure it was anything else for long enough to say it devolved. It's a sad indictment on everyone* involved. Grow up people. If you think someone else is being a nutcase then take the high ground, that's the move that actually helps.

* edit - ok, not everyone there's some sensible posts in amongst the rubbish
