RE: 3-Game Suspension of Amazon Rainforest Raiders Coach, Jenny Lynn

There seems to be a gross misconception of the reason for suspending Amazon Rainforest Raiders Coach, Jennifer Lynn. This posting is to make clear that Jenny Lynn is NOT being suspended for any ”freedom of speech” infractions or for ACCEPTABLE fun antics before, during, or after baseballs games at KEVLAR Memorial Stadium. The issue behind her 3-game suspension is of a much more serious nature, and the actions for which she is being disciplined should be offensive to all involved in Birdie Baseball, players as well as spectators.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, Jenny Lynn, I would like to address your note of August 16, left at “The Office of the Birdie Baseball Commissioner” point by point:

1. You most certainly may form a Player’s Committee if you wish. Though I do not see the necessity, it would need to be representative of the entire League.
2. You are most certainly welcome to plead your case to the staff [i.e. team of Umpires], though it seems you already have.
3. You stated that you have not seen a team go through so many consecutive losses without a win since Birdie Baseball started. You are correct. To date, your Rainforest Raiders are poised at a 10-game losing streak. However, this is not completely out of proportion to other losing streaks the Birdie Baseball League has seen since its inception. In the current 2011 Season, the CrackerJack Conures just recently broke a 9-game losing streak. In 2010, the Timneh African Greys experienced a 9-game losing streak as well. In 2009 the Kevlar Keets’ also experienced a 9-game losing streak. There have also been slightly lesser losing streaks of 7, 6, and 5 consecutive losses from 2011 back through 2009. The 2008 season consisted of only 4 teams, and the statistics are not available for that season. And Birdie Baseball was actually birthed in 2007 with only 2 teams and a 7-game series.
4. You are correct again with regard to trash talking being, and always having been, a part of the fun of Birdie Baseball.
5. According to Roget’s Thesaurus “accuse” and “insinuate” are synonymous.
6. The email you received informing you of your 3-game suspension was delivered by that method out of respect and regard for your privacy. Your description of it as “nasty” is now open to the interpretation of the general population of the Birdie Baseball League, and the BirdChannel population at large.

Before I publish the email in its entirety, and on behalf of the Umpiring Team who signed off on the decision, I would also like to clarify one more misconception. There is a great distinction between being “suspended” for 3 games, and being “banned” from Birdie Baseball. If you were to be banned from the sport, it would be permanent. This is a disciplinary action, and therefore temporary, for a specified length of time.
