    Well bad mouthing the wrong guy as a member of the teamsters will end up with you in the end zone of some football stadium. There’s your freedom of speech for you.

    Walking in lock step with the PC cunts in power and cowering in fear about saying what you believe in is reminiscent of just a few other dark chapters in history, too. Just a few.
    And Hoffa was as much a criminal as those who had him whacked...apples and oranges.

    Myths exist because people perpetuate them which causes hearers to believe and fear them.

    Your logic is no good even if we go with the teamsters being the mob.
    The mob is a cult.
    And you can't compare the motivations of a cultist with that of a citizen, villager or peasant.
    In regular society you should bee able to speak truth to power without power exercising force.
    Force of any kind is abuse of power in response to truth.

    If the response to freedom is force then you know it's a trick and you been eating the treat.

    Ummm….dude, say anything you want. You’re missing the point. Don’t always expect to keep your employment when you do.

    I respect Ken for what he did, but even he would probably agree that he didn’t expect to get off Scott free.

    It’s more admirable that someone knows the consequences of speaking their minds, and says what they mean anyway, using their own names, and putting their livelihoods on the line.

    I actually agree with your initial take on this. Like BZoo, I'm disgusted that Rosenthal got fired for speaking up & out, but I get it and it is just another reason why pro sports for me are dead.

    Then again, as much as I detest Manfred as the douchebag fuck that he is, I'm fairly certain that old timer Kennesaw Mountain Landis would've probably had Rosenthal gutted like a perch for this a hundred years ago.

    So much for the good old days.

    The difference between Rosenthal and Manfred is that Rosenthal actually likes the sport of baseball. I'm sure Ken was well aware of the repercussions of going against the clown but he didn't give a shit because he's beyond frustrated with the current state of the sport and knew he would have the backing of the entire baseball community that despises Manfred.

    Then, like John said, " a working class hero is something to be"...
