In sports, why is it acceptable to pat a guy on the ass?

I don't think I've ever patted anybody on the ass while playing sports. Have you guys? I guess I wouldn't care if somebody patted me on the ass, but I don't think I could pat somebody else's ass. It just seems unnatural.

I find it extremely ironic that such a gesture would be so accepted since most athletes consider themselves macho and I dare say homophobic.

I confess, I did once... I usually go for the lower back, but one time during the finals for our intramural game, our PF was 6-6 and I miss judged by a couple inches.

It's acceptable because petting his Johnson gets you a fine and a penalty.....

Are you feeling left out, IZ?

Seriously, I don't know why. I get my ass patted all the time when I play basketball. Also happened all the time back when I was in Little League. Guess it's just no big deal?

Maybe cause you'll notice. If somebody pats you on the back or shoulders you might not notice (esspecially if you're wearing a lot of equipment like in football.) But i'll be damned if i don't notice something/somebody touching my ass!

Same reason it's okay to pat a horse on it's butt after a good race. Just because you do it, doesn't mean you want to screw the horse.

Another reason could is that the choices were between patting the ass and bitting the guy's balls and everyone except for Sevilla's Francisco Gallardo (from Spain) chose patting the ass.

I think it's okay as long as it's not a pinch.

Nope, I'm not homophobic...just thought this would be an interesting topic to discuss. Like I said, I don't think I'd really care if somebody patted me on the ass, but I can't see myself doing the same. Maybe you're right, though, I might do it if it were one of those "in the moment" kind of things.

That's just wrong.
