The Orioles caution observers to resist the temptation to accept collective judgments based on unsubstantiated allegations. The Orioles further believe that each Major League player must be treated on an individual basis, must not be judged responsible by mere association, and is innocent of any improper conduct until proven otherwise beyond a reasonable doubt.
I recall in season five of The Sopranos, when Tony addresses the crew at Raymond Curto's birthday party, defending his protection of Tony Blundetto after Blundetto had killed Phil Leotardo's brother.
After a statement meant to be significant, the guys were unimpressed, at best. Tony left, and Patsy Parisi spoke.
"Thanks. That was great."
