When Gloria Allred gets her talons into you, you do not die easily. Fresh off her press conference with Justin Quinn, a Giants fan who claims that Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell hurled homophobic slurs in front of his young daughters on Saturday, Allred says that a fan of another team has also stepped forward to say that he was verbally abused by McDowell.

“It was an anger issue and it also involved young children,” said Allred, who declined to name the fan or the ballpark where it occurred, only that he was a father who had young children with him. “The concern is it may not be an isolated (incident).”

Could it be one of these guys?

Allred said she intends to write Commissioner Bud Selig a second letter including the details. Poor Bud … he was intending to polish off the first book in the “Game of Thrones” series this weekend.
