Ath­letes’ protest dis­re­spect­ful

Winnipeg Free Press - - YOUR SAY -

Re: Pol­i­tics and sports can’t be sep­a­rated (Oct. 7)

As a loyal Free Press reader for more than 50 years, I have read many col­umns with which I have dis­agreed, but Dan Lett’s takes the cake.

Do you re­ally think that sports fans, or any­one else for that mat­ter, need over­paid prima don­nas who couldn’t com­pose a proper English sen­tence if their life de­pended on it to set an ex­am­ple for them? No, I’m not talk­ing about jour­nal­ists — I’m talk­ing about so-called “pro­fes­sional” ath­letes.

If they re­ally want to make a dif­fer­ence, I sug­gest they do some­thing con­struc­tive with their time and money, rather than en­gage in be­hav­iour
