    The correct answer is 1, if thrown hard enough.

    At the very end he explains it, basically the MLB has a dress code that you could only wear the hats they were selling online. (which is why I brought it up here, as it was a dress code thing.) Back in 2001, a week after 9/11, they tried to stops the Mets from wearing the hats of first responders, but quickly gave up on that idea when everyone had a crap storm over that. Yankees did it as well during the World Series, and again the MLB tried to stop it again but quickly gave up. On the tenth anniversary, I guess they decided that enough was enough.

    It seems MLB didn't bite the bullet isn't taking the hit at all and is instead fining teams which do violate league policy. Again, I'm not sure what your issue seems to be. The league has been consistent in its approach to honoring 9/11.

    The forum wasn't around in 2001 (to my knowledge) and I'm not sure what my position on this issue would have been 13 years ago. However, in retrospect, I see nothing wrong with the league's approach. They were allowed to commemorate the event in other visible ways however, refused. Why? I don't know.
    That was their initial response yes, but in the end they had to give up on the idea because word got out. And when I was referring to the news story, I wasn't referring to 2001, but 2011.

    You can't write comedy this funny.
    I have to give conservatives some credit, only one of them fell for this story. I guess even Fox can't fool all conservatives all the time.

    The stepdaughter of a U.S. veteran was told last week that she was not allowed to wear to school a T-shirt to honor the men and women who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
    This thread didn't work out so well for you. Aren't you getting tired of this happening to you all the time?

    When was there a Navy thread that did work out well for him? If there was one, it happened before I joined the forum.

    How dare the school dress code prevent my son from wearing his Assassination of Julius Caesar memorial shirt.

    So what?

    There is a school uniform.

    If people can where different shirts whenever they feel like it then there will no longer be a school uniform.

    If the father doesn't like it, then he should put his child in another school.

    The little girl is not going to drop dead if she does not wear her 9/11 t-shirt to school...she can put it on when she gets home.

    Sheesh.
