IMO, anyone beyond a teenager that still uses the word in this discussion is a dolt that I wouldn't like to be associated with. A total display of stupidity and ignorance.
You must be old, otherwise you would know that, thanks to excessive usage by ignorant and dumb teens, the word does not mean what it means anymore.

Gaucho wrote:Exactly. This "generational" stuff is utter BS. Words do change their meaning, but it's a dynamic process that happens over time. You can't just take a word and claim that is has a new meaning all of a sudden, as if language was arbitrary. It is not.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Ontario try to revise their definition of mischief. The London police have gone to a lot of trouble to publicize this crime and subsequent arrest. If somebody threw the banana at a white player it never would have been known by anybody not in attendance that evening.

Give me an instance you want me to review and I will give you my scum-o-meter reading, if you so please.
Perhaps you would prefer if I called Simmonds a lying coward who is too much of a **** to own up to what he said? Referring to this instance, of course.
If you are trying to pin me into the "you're being a homer" scenario, I'll have you know that there are many players we have employed over the years who I disliked the way they played but glad they were with us and not against us.
