Since I was a little kid watching the games with my grandfather I've been a 100% loyal fan.
That is until yesterday! When Stephen Ross and Joe Philbin announced that they have FINED and SUSPENDED Don Jones for tweeting "omg, horrible" they in essence fined and suspended me!
When one of their players expresses the same beliefs I share and is fined and suspended it is clear that they do NOT share the same moral values that I want my grandchildren taught. They, in essence, have said my moral values are wrong and my freedom of speech is not to be heard or expressed. This is exactly what they did to Don Jones!
It is time to put and end to this nonsense and to draw a line in the sand. When a player stands up for something that is right and is fined and suspended, I will have no part in supporting Ross or the Miami Dolphins ever again.
When I can no longer watch the draft with my own grandson without having to worry about him seeing images of two men, embraced and kissing, and having Ross not only support this act, but to actually fine and suspend a player for speaking out against it, it is time to root for another team.
I will no longer support Ross or the Miami Dolphins.
I hope many more fans are wiling to do the same!
Who is willing to take the same stand?
