While I'm disgusted as the next guy at this I'm even more disgusted when a "man" treats his wife, lady, and or children this way which is frequent in this area and for which the guy gets a slap on the wrist, maybe some community hours, take anger management or family violence program, maybe get no contact order, have contact anyway and rinse, lather, repeat. Endless cycle.

This is OT, so this should be allowed, but theres people that have been reported for physical abuse of spouse 10 times and nothing happens to them. Police get annoyed with the reports because nothing happens in court, they feel helpless always responding to the same calls, and seeing the same couples. Locked in un-matrimony.

If you know one of these abusers, or even suspect it, don't let it pass. It gets worse, invariably.

God this pisses me off.
****ing cowardly piece of ****.
Weak minded and the brain of a sub-human.

I would love to beat the **** out of a person that abused an animal like that. Cat, dog, hamster, doesn't matter.
Makes me sick.

Tell them you work for the AUC and you will take note of every incorrect thing they tell you and will report them if necessary.

These people are the worst. You pretty much have to lose it to get them to go away.

The brutal aspect of this is that they are apparently trained to all be relentless stalkers. They are like no other breed of door to door salesman. As in no has zero effect. No, no, no has zero effect. Get off my ****ing lawn right the **** now starts to send a message..

I'm polite to most people that come knocking. But given no other option what do they expect people to do?

I had a guy like this that I had to deal with earlier this year or late last year can't remember but it was only a couple months after another one had come by. The guy argued with me for 10 minutes trying to tell me that it was the first time they had a salesman in thearea trying to sell their services. I finally had to say well then if this is the first time you've ever been in the area I'm not ****ing interested in dealing with you good bye. I couldn't slam the door shut on him either because my brother had just arrived and was waiting at the bottom of the steps lol.

Haha, the Blue Jays are a disgrace. What a nightmare for people who follow this team. Rogers finally does what the fans want them to do (spend money) and they turn from a mediocre franchise/ball club into one of the worst in the league.

Typical pre-season Toronto hype. 10 games below .500 and last in the division. Good luck making that up.

EDIT: Just looking at the overall standings, they're 3rd last in the league. Ouch.

That is so brutal though. And I don't see how you can fault JG on much if any of it. I expect them to go on a huge run at some point in the season but they need Reyes back. Everyone's got to be better.

They bought into their own hype. They thought they could just step on the field and win games because of the sudden talent infusion.

Yep. Unfortunately it is already time to begin pondering about next season. What a joke.

As a casual follower there is hype all the time and disappointment every year to some degree.

But for whatever reason people still think going out and spending money equals guaranteed results.

I don't know much of anything about baseball but isn't a team infused with chemistry as is the case with any other team sport?

If this is the case how do you build a team by infusing several new players into the "team"?

I would imagine like in any team sport it would take considerable time to gell, familiarize, learn each others tendencies, become a machine, etc.

Isn't it possible the Blue Jays made too many changes in personnel?

Clarification. A nightmare for people who are emotionally invested in the Blue Jays. I follow them but I am not invested.

Never understood the Jays hype. Marlins did the exact same thing last year, were getting hyped as a playoff team with all the guys they signed, see it isn't working and unload them on the Jays.
