Lol @ the writer who's boycotting the Cubs because of Murphy's fairly benign ignorance

You mean pro athletes are paid because of their prowess at athletics and not because they're science majors from Oxford?  NOOOoooo, say it ain't so!

Anyone who thinks there aren't multiple guys with Murphy's exact views (or something a lot more hostile) on every MLB team and possibly every major pro sports team is completely kidding him/herself.  It amazes me how far people can bury their heads in the sand, or up their own rear ends.

Which writer?

This one:

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2018/aug/23/chicago-cubs-mlb-daniel-murphy

It was referenced in the column linked in the OP.

I mean, the writer even admits that they don't even know if Murphy has changed his mind since making the comments.  And they admit that he developed a friendly personal relationship with Billy Bean (not to be confused with Billy Beane of the A's), the gay man who was originally the subject of Murphy's comments.

It's really a big nothing, but some people can't help but fight pointless battles.

Thanks. I didn't see the OP. I read the article and see where you're coming from.
