Hey Charles, Can You Delete this Pic from Your Digital Library?

I understand the sentiment and I have two thoughts about this, the first being more serious, and the second a little more tongue-in-cheek:

 

Thought #1

Even historical events that are less savory can serve as a great teaching tool, or can give us poignant reminders for motivation.

 

I didn't start religiously following the Ducks until 2001, the year with Joey Harrington at the helm culminating in the beatdown of Colorado in the Fiesta bowl. Many in the OBD have been fans far longer, and endured the years of the hated Huskies.

 

Given my starting point, the teams I grew to loathe, the ones often responsible for ruining Duck seasons, were Stanford, USC, Cal, and Arizona. I just never developed the same distaste for UW because throughout my entire Duck fandom, the Huskies have just taken their beating and gone home (for the most part).

 

When I saw this picture earlier, it filled me with rage. I need this reminder to fully appreciate what earlier Duck fans and teams went through before I officially "joined the flock".

 

Thought #2

I imagine the QB saying, "We're only piling on because you wore those uniforms. You do NOT deserve to win looking like that, and you know it!"

 

Let's be honest, if the QB said that, he'd be right 🙂

 

Summary - This picture should remain to remind us to NEVER go soft on the Huskies, AND that the uniforms worn by the Ducks in that game were, and still are, unforgiveable.

As an avowed devotee of the author George Orwell deleting pix of historical events smacks of something... well... Orwellian to me.  

 

That said, being as this picture contains a disgusting player from a team that is thoroughly disgusting making a likewise disgusting gesture to one of our BD's (wearing a likewise disgusting uniform) I believe it may indeed be deserving of total pixel annihilation anytime that can be arranged.  

 

I'll side with Steven A's sentiments  but... defer the better judgement to Charles F.  That way everyone wins!  (Everyone except the guy in the Duck uni).

But, but... but...

 

It's a great reminder of EXACTLY what poor sportsmanship looks like. The only thing worse would be if he was using a different finger.

Without this picture I don’t appreciate his “surrender cobra” picture from the 2018 game as much.

True that.

Without the context it appears the player in white is demonstrating his stif arm prowess. To soon?
