a CFLer is in trouble for his Twitter rant

From where I sit it looks like some people are still struggling with the realities of new media...

I never ceases to amaze me when people post their hate on Twitter (or anywhere else), then get surprised when others chide them for it. Let's face it, we all have our own prejudices, but if you make those opinions part of the public discourse there will be repercussions. That's just the reality of life in a connected world. It also strikes me as odd that Price is making these comments on a Monday...the draft was over on Saturday.  So, not only did he make inflammatory comments, but he was two days late doing it.  Further to that if you are a member of or associated with a particular company or business don't be surprised if your employer isn't too impressed. Maurice Price is quite entitled to his opinion. And the Stampeders are entitled to punish him for making those opinions public. Price even has the gall to complain about the up coming fine. If you're stupid enough to do something that you know will result in punishment from your employer, don't act surprised when you get in trouble.

At least that's how I see it, and I sit in the cheap seats.
