The April 2 editorial, titled "A hero on and off the court," was written with a general if not racial bias.
The writer was talking about missing the golden age of athletics, and John Wooden, who was the greatest coach of all time, in my humble opinion.
He went on to talk about overpaid spoiled brats who assault women, abuse drugs and brandish firearms in locker rooms and nightclubs. He then mentioned Chip Hilton and Bronc Burnett (heroes). I don't know either of those guys but I can guarantee they didn't make the kind of money athletes make these days. This makes the comparison null and void.
Remember, my friend, not all athletes are spoiled brats, nor do they all assault women or abuse drugs. Some of them do referee games that they are betting on, bet on games they are playing in and take steroids that they lie about. Don't hate. Some people have talent and make a lot of money. Does that mean that other people that make a lot of money are spoiled brats?
Are either one of your heroes black?
