Yes, but thats not how it works.
The Dolphins are the employers and they can ask their employees to act in a certain manner. If you or I shared an opinion that our employers frowned upon we could expect some sort of repercussion. The Dolphins are especially sensitive about their image right now because of recent incidents.
There used to be a saying that "actions speak louder than words", .. not true any longer.
Words are now more powerful than actions.
A lot of people are just looking for reasons to be offended. I don't think you can be offended unless you choose to be offended, .. or at least allow it.
A lot of people are too sensitive. It's not a good thing.
Usually the people "offended" were not even the target of that offense.
Very true, .. they are the trouble makers.
They are the ones that we could do without.
Kind of like the people complaining that the Dolphins are punishing their player for something he tweeted. They weren't the target of either the tweet or the punishment by the Dolphins.
Not even close, .. nobody here was 'offended' by the Dolphins or anything they did.
Settle down there Donald Sterling.
When has it ever worked both ways? The preachers of tolerance are the least tolerant.
For someone who's not offended you seem to be doing a lot of complaining.
The NFL is a business and it needs to do whatever it can to keep a large fan following and keep revenue up. And that means keeping up with popular opinion.
Why else do you think we have all these breast cancer awareness months when lung cancers kill more women and men?
Yeah that whole breast cancer BS really angers me for that reason and others. There is plenty of money thrown at breast cancer; others need more funding like Ovarian cancer.
Not complaining, .. just making a couple of observations without bumping up against forum rules.
If you are asking if I know and understand that it is always all about the money, ... yes I do.
Pouncey and company who defended hernandez are looking even worse now with the latest indictments.
