It's different with tennis though, because if you toss one player, the match is over, but in a team sport, the game continues. The players know that they can get away with it, so they do it. I think it's funny when they yell. I know that if I paid a lot of money for a ticket, I would be really unhappy if a player was disqualified for yelling at a chair ump.
Even though people get ejected in team sports, a lot of them act worse than tennis players. I've seen people yell right at the umpires face, pick up one of the bases and walk away with it and beat the crap out of water or gatorade coolers. I've also seen bench brawls, fist fights and plenty of violence. And who can forget Bobby Valentine getting ejected and coming back to the dugout in a Groucho Marx disguise.
