Funny, I thought it was reasonable to expect when you travel somewhere via an airport you should reasonably, barring weather or mechanical or Jew Hating EOs by DRUMPF, expect to depart and arrive on time, and should you dare be selfish and ignore the righteous cause of thousands of white people clogging up your terminal with signs championing the rights of people they don't know, you should expect to face the wrath of tens of thousands of angry men and women with social media accounts and well thought out thoughts.

So why are you allowed to complain about it but not Sage Steele?

Forgive me for not originally including my sarcasm font. Sage Steele has every right to complain about this. And then call me if she needs a shoulder to cry on.

TY for clarifying. I sometimes lose track of who you're trying to troll.

I'm sorry, we were looking for "because I'm white."

I have a question. So is Sage Steele going to be in hot water over this?
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

She hasn't tweeted since yesterday so I guess it's theoretically possible she's on a Twitter ban, which is one of ESPN's specialties. Otherwise, no.

I...I don't know. I know that LeBatard criticized her yesterday, and I know that ESPN tries to avoid political controversy. That said, Sarah Spain legit marched in the Women's March two weekends ago, and I can imagine Steele would bring that up if something were to come up (and it would be hilarious..."You let this white girl from the richest suburb in Chicago march and didn't say a word, but I post an Instagram photo and now I'm in trouble? WHITE PRIVILEGE!") I guess that's a long way of saying, probably nothing public, more a "be careful you make it clear your words represent you and only you, Sage" talking to.

From the front page of espn.com

Green lifts his leg and makes contact with Blake Griffin's body.

Too bad there exists no verb in modern standard English that expresses such an action more simply than that.

Other than my stupid fake football league, I cannot remember the last time I went to ESPN.com on purpose. Sounds like I'm missing a bunch. :roll:

TBH, I went there specifically to see if they'd soft pedal this incident. They tend not to disappoint

ESPN is going to start shitcanning people and this time it's going to be on air talent, not guys like the Schwab behind the scenes.
