Kiss the Kiss Cam goodbye at Syracuse

    Justified or overreaction? A university should not make such an irrational decision because of one letter to the editor. Seems a little silly, and I'm sure many will tell them so.

    Did Michael Sam get on before they shut it down?

    I thought it was ridiculous when I saw the headline ... but if the letter is correct and unwilling women are being physically forced by groups of men, they have to end it.

    No. I say don't end it. And let's put an end in this country to everything being taken away because one person gets all upset. (The article itself says the person didn't mean to start this debate about taking the kiss cam down)

    Be more careful who you look for at games. Look for people who are clearly there together. If they don't acknowledge the cam, then move on after a few seconds. But don't take the whole thing away.

    I couldn't find the article, but there was one recently where an MLB team, which escapes me for a moment, said they would stop showing two members of the opposing team together in the dugout during the Kiss Cam, because it was poking fun at gays.

    Two Texas A&M Aggie corp guys were shown on KissCam sitting next to each at an A&M road game. That shot got quite the ovation.

    How about just knocking that Kiss Cam off in the first place?
    HC and LongTimeListener like this.

    It was the Mets. Similar deal where some guy on Twitter complained, it caught a little momentum and the Mets decided it wasn't worth the trouble.

    Funny, but maybe fake:

    They should get rid of it regardless. It's awkward. They constantly show people who either aren't there together or are platonic friends (or maybe relatives). Just get rid of the damn thing. Everyone.

    At the Cards -Cubs game the other night, the camera operator first asked the couple in front of us if they agreed to be on the Kiss Cam. Problem solved.

    I like my solution better.
