I sure hope you do not use the phrases, "That is retarded." or "You are retarded." because that is just as offensive as "Jew you down."

So, "f" bombs are alright, and calling him an f'ing a-hole or d-bag is better?! I believe it was just used as a general derrogatory term, such as bitch or a-hole. That's the purpose of these words, to evoke and convey strong emotion. So if he called him a "f'ing turnip" but used the same body language and strain on the word, it's ok? It's the feeling behind it that matters and I believe he was just generally pissed and wasn't using it for it's literal definition. Everyone needs to chill on being the moral police and think about what issues are truly important. If you are wasting your time on these petty problems, what real issues are you missing out on?

Siking out your opponent is all part of the game. If the other guy was offended and HE was the one complaining, his teammates would be calling him the same kind of slurs making fun of him!

I think we all know why Harv is so upset about the F**king F word. A bit personal maybe?
