Thomas choose to go public, freedom of speech doesnít mean freedom from consequences, so I donít sympathize with his plight. However, I stated I understand why someone would do what he did and others before him. Iím Canadian, I donít have a dog in this fight so his politics are irrelevant to me.

I couldn't recall who did what or when (so thank you for the reminder), I am sure there are others too. However, it was only Theo from the Red Sox who was the GM, not any players and he didn't make any facebook remarks or public statements, it went unnoticed....(queue liberal media conspiracy comments)

My only point in this, is because Thomas made it public, he has to bear the consequences of his actions. That's it... Say whatever you want... we have that right but with that right comes criticism.
