    i think that if any of the ball players (baseball,football,soccer, am i forgeting any?) had the time to smoke, then i would say that they should be allowed to do so. the catch is that they usually dont have the time, except on the bench.

    if you were talking about regular golf, then yes they should and they do as was previously posted.

        IIRC, the reason so many MLB baseball players chew tobacco is because smoking tobacco is against the rules, or else they would be smoking.

          FYI - this is why I will not be attending any Tuesday Twos events this year. When HPD pulls their heads out of their asses, I will return to this course. Until then, I will play at the big boy courses where babysitters are not needed...

            They do. Pedro Guerrero used to smoke cigarettes in the dugout.

              By choosing to go somewhere with prior knowledge that cigarettes will be smoked by peers, and then whining about it afterward, it becomes apparent that metacognition may not be Leslie's strong suit. Therefore, I stuck my nose in (probably unnecessarily) and offered a new view to consider.



              LOL Thanks Chuck



              Dan, separate cigarette smoke from littering. That is a whole different can of worms. You're right, though, butts on the ground make my blood boil- just no more so than any other piece of trash I see on the ground.

              BTW, I definitely seperate cigarette smoking from littering. I also do not consider cigarrette smoking or cigarrette smokers repulsive. Those were not my words or my intended meaning.

              Just trying to have an "intelligent" dialog around an obviously sensitive subject in order to possibly surface some compromises...especially since it appears this may be handled with broad strokes in the future.

                  Leslie and I were in a group a few years ago and I stayed on the right side of the wind and we had no worries. It's about respect, on both sides...but make no mistake, I smoke like a freaking chimney. I don't need the permission of my group provided I am curtious, and I refuse to apologize for paying more in taxes than other Americans. Smoking is one way I declare myself a good American; if you ask me to stop I question your commitment to this great nation.

                  So Sam, let's get together for a Tuesday evening round....

                    Would it be in bad taste if I termed that post idiotic?

                    Dick statement: "I don't need the permission of my group..." You may not NEED it, but you SHOULD ask for it!

                    Bonehead statement: "Smoking is one way I declare myself a good American"
                    a) What is a good American? Is there such a thing? And if so, smoking helps declare it?

                    I smoked in Leslie's group too, and the only thing that made me was a douche bag. An unhealthy douche bag. Just like when I smoked in 'Ol Bob's group. And all those others whose groups I smoked in.

                      With Medical Marijuana Laws expanding all over the country, the arguement of "legality" will soon be moot. What other reasons would we ban "substances" from events?
                      At a B-tier, many years ago, the TD brought up the "no alcohol or drug use" policy, stating it was a form of "artificial stress relief".
                      Half-way through the round, this same TD came up to my group, asking to bum a cigarette. I expressed my surprise at him being a smoker and he replied, "Only when I'm really stressed out."
                      He didn't appreciate my reminding him about his "artificial stress relief" speech.
                      Cigs OK, joints or beers not. Hmmmmm.

                        I guess the urge is unjustified or presumptuous, but some of us would like to keep guys like you around a little longer, if not just smelling better. It's just that you're one of the good ones.

                                You know, you'd think that people in a tournament would want people to smoke pot and drink beer as much as possible. That way they have slowed reaction times and other such things. I know, for one, that if somebody in my group wants to get trashed, I'll let them. That way I can be assured that I don't finish dead last.

                                Anything to get ahead...
