While Epstein was not a player, he had become one of the central figures in Boston's sports, a household name, and a local boy to boot. Epstein received barely a hundredth of the criticism Thomas did for not going to the WH. When you see such a disparity in coverage, even if it doesn't involve the same journalists (baseball writers vs hockey writers) the perception of bias is justified, IMO.

I say all this, btw, as an unabashed lefty who probably disagrees with most of TT's political ideas and world view.
Hell, where were the questions to all those turds that skipped out on Pesky's funeral? Now THAT was offensive!
