I REALLY don't understand why everyone is so upset with this Manny Ramirez situation. This topic dominated the early segment of Mike and Mike this morning! It's simply ridiculous, but I guess their are no other players in the world to attack (Mike Vic is officially demolished so its time to go over kill on another player.) I know we are all die hard sports fans, but in the grand scheme of life, is a game really ever the end of the world? If it is then you need to reevaluate your life!
In the sports world, athletes (despite their overwheleming salaries) are merely labors, hence the reason for players unions (they are so minor and powerless that they need a collective voice and additional representatives.) Now, if you ask any other day laboror if their world will end if their corporate employersuffer's third quarter losses, their response would be..."hell no"! This situation is no different, athletes go give 100 percent, especially Manny...and thats all his contract requries....this whole notion that players hearts need to bleed like fans is OBNOXIOUS....at the end of the day its merely a job for them! Remember, most athletes weren't born and raised in the states they play in, heck most athletes don't even reside in the states they play in...so naturally we cannot expect them to have the same passion as a breed, born, and raised, Clevland or Sox fan! Yes they are loyal to their clubs, they already put their blood and sweat into their teams year round....do we really need the tears too. Fans FALL BACK!
