“...but do believe it’s wrong to deny employment to an athlete because of his political views and the way he lawfully expresses them.”

An imbecilic statement. He is free to express whatever political views he so chooses on his own freakin time NOT while on the companies timeclock costing his employer millions.....PERIOD!

A Denver weekend “conservative” talk
radio host who voted for Trump
but now criticizes him on air was
just fired.In that case it was part of his job.

Liberals/anti Trumpers are calling that a sad day for the First Amendment.
But his employer,KNUS, had every right to fire him. The 1A protects you against the government, not a private firm.Here the station can fire him because of what he said, because he had lousy ratings—and the government protects THAT right: Freedom of the Press.

Monday Night Football fired Rush over what he said.Freedom of the Press.

Anyway if Colon “Cancer” wants to protest off the clock, great! On the field he represents the team and has been paid quite well by them.

Some “slave”.Yes the teams are “owners” but it’s really his employer.
