SDS: Can we retire the Roberto Alomar card please?

SDS

Long time Jays fan.

Would love a different card after today’s announcement. Or just remove the card in general. I love that The Show stands up for racial equality but it’s time we also stand up and stop promoting cards like this as well.

I know you guys paid for rights for this card, but it just sucks.

Not trying to start an argument but I don’t think this is worth a support ticket. There are other cards too that should be retired as well like the countless Chapman cards each year. But with this news and support from the Blue Jays head office I think it’d be right. I really don’t want to see the card in my inventory and it’s a no sell card so it’s just gonna be kind of bothersome to have him there.

I’m sure there’s others who are gonna speak up in a toxic matter so if this topic needs to be locked or removed I understand, but I’d like to see something done for this.

SDS

I second this motion

Has the man been found guilty of anything? Until then, why do anything.

SDS

Yeah, MLB found him guilty

SDS

I don't think we'll see any additional cards, and those that have acquired him already would potentially be offered a comparable card to swap out.

They did this last time with Felipe Vasquez. Swapped him out for a FB Cole.

SDS

I use and love the card whats the Alomar story?

SDS

Imagine needing a safe space because a card was in your inventory. You don't have to use it though and it can be buried by getting better cards...

Seriously no one even knows what he allegedly did so who the hell are we to judge?

SDS

i understand the sentiment but i doubt they will remove the card for this years game. they didnt remove jose fernandez when he died. Most likely itll be gone by next years game

This is all I’m asking for. I don’t want to see a no sell card in my inventory all season.

I didn’t say safe space? We have pride flags available in custom stadiums, Jackie Robinson on the cover and a huge banner in MLB 20 for a month commemorating BLM. I’m asking all movements to be equally supported.

SDS

I agree he should be removed.

well technically MLB investigated and found evidence of wrongdoing. hence the move to move him to the ineligible list.

SDS

Stop with the cancel culture BS, He hasn’t been found guilty in a court of law so just relax already. It’s just a card in a game If you’re that concerned don’t use the card.

What movement is this supporting? The "lets jump to conclusions and judge someone with absolutely no facts about the situation" movement? Sexual misconduct can mean anything from telling a woman she looks nice today to unwanted penetration. Pretty sure its not the latter because he would be getting arrested right now. He's not being removed from the MLB HOF as per their statement so i think its safe to say that it was nothing violent. Again, who are we to judge? If you dont wanna use the card, dont. There are better 2B in here so buy them up and bury him. You literally dont have to see this card at all unless you intend to go to your inventory every morning to stare at it over a cup of coffee.

i mean he's essentially banned by the MLB so why should he be in an MLB game?

You seem to be jumping to a few of your own conclusions there pal.

SDS

Hall of fame hasn’t banned him

He was found guilty by the people who provision the cards to MLB The Show to use. I'm not asking him to be struck from the history books, I'm asking the game developers to follow suit with the people who gave him rights to his card to begin with.

Well technically, Manfred is a whiny [censored] anyway and he will say anything to avoid confrontation.
