I suspect that the reason for this is that no one wants to deal with the sexual misconduct allegations that would likely follow. It's unfortunate but given today's climate surrounding that issue everybody in the sex-starved male dominated gaming scene just would rather avoid it completely.

And woman have no one but themselves to blame for fostering this age of puritanical witch hunts where even the slightest misstep can have you hunted down and persecuted by the Inquisition.

Did you deliberately use the singular form of woman and the plural "have no one but themselves" to confuse the reader whether you are talking about one specific woman or all women?

If it is the former, which woman are you talking about and if it is the latter...

... I do not see anything wrong with laying blame on a whole group, which roughly consists of half the population of the world, without differentiating. Especially with such a bold and seemingly baseless claim.

Perhaps men also have some blame for they way they've treated women?

Or will you #notallmen after #yesallwomen-ing?

I had the SF vs LA game on while working. I liked the overall way the broadcast was done, and they did give enough info that I feel if you didn't play the game you wouldn't be totally lost.

I liked the overhead map view enough I wish they made a way to have it attached 100% of the time. As a player I found it more interesting to see this and how the teams moved/positioned. I do wonder if they'll make vods or replay files in the future too.
