while i don't think the money being spent on dancing girls would be of any real significance toward the team, i agree that having them is totally pointless.

The hotness is point enough for me. Besides, it's all part of the show.

Sometimes, I think you guys would be happy watching games without any of the colour or frills. White jerseys with tiny little numbers made out of masking tape, no logos, no crowd, no music, no sounds, no cheering, no booing, no dunks, no celebrations, no Herbie. The 7 of you could sit with Doug Smith.

My thoughts:

1) Agree with above posters with those who said if you put yourself on display, in something that is only available to you because of your physical beauty, you are open to critiques on it. How else would one evaluate their "job" performance.

2) If this is discussion that many members would like to engage in, why should they not be allowed? By disallowing it, you are encouraging censorship because you don't like the ideas and thoughts being expressed. I don't advocate censorship of speech, whether I like it or not.

3) It is only females shown on the daily because the majority of the members are male. If there was a motion of support by the female members that really wanted to see a "sunshine guy" every day, then I'm sure Acie would be happy to oblige. Fact is, we don't have many female members (3 maybe?) and they don't seem to upset by the current goings-on.

If our behaviour discourages other females from joining and they can't take part in the fun (as I have seen Taz and Barracuda play along, much to their credit) then personally, I don't want them in here. If men were objectified, as they have been in the past by that sexist Barracuda, it wouldn't bother me. I'm not one to get bent out of shape by the natural human reaction to rank the physical attractiveness of those around me.

For some reason it is ok to evaluate someone on a mental level (ie. "This person is uneducated and lazy") but not on a physical. WHY? What makes one "better" or more acceptable than the other?

People like to think that they are morally superior by choosing their attraction/distaste for others based on intelligence. IMO valuing only intelligence or only money or only one quality makes you just as shallow.

I say, let the criticisms fly if people have put themselves in the crosshairs.

I dont' understand why this is a debate really. We're not doing anything new here...in fact we're totally ripping off (but advertising for at the same time) the Sun. The photos are tasteful and provided the commentary remains civil I see no problem. If there is sufficient interest from the female members to have men in the thread...go for it, although I think the issue at heart, admiration for the physical differs among the sexes, whether in reality or perhaps in public.

What I think should change is the avatars containing scantily clad women. That can get people in trouble at work, whereas entering a thread where you expect those types of images makes it your responsibility.

I'm not going to disagree that the photos are tasteful, although the Sun photos are simply badly done. BUT - tasteful is a subjective notion that can get complicated by cultural filters. Maybe the debate is largely pointless in that it isn't much of a debate, but I don't mind that it gets brought up and hashed out all the same. Actually what I like about the dish thread when it gets into the long discussions on the hot chicks, is that it often points to a lot of complexity when it comes to sexuality. I know - total nerd - but there you have it. Blah blah blah ok I'll shutup already.

I agree. Excellent post Reni.

This is a bit out of left field for me to be honest. Someone said in an earlier post that we've actually ripped the SUN photographers more than the girls and that's pretty much spot on lol....

If anything I think that some of these conversations have been BENEFICIAL in that quite a few of us have voiced our opinions CONTRARY to the media-driven stereotypes that are currently being pushed. And that's nice to see.

I'm confused as to why this is such an issue.

If you want to discuss the articles then discuss them..... you'll get a response more often than not.

If you want to discuss the girls instead then you're free to do that too.
