So, I’m not going to stop being a Suns fan over this — even though I think the front office and the players are just wrong. I can’t say I disagree with the organization voicing their opinion – I just disagree with their opinion. Now I guarantee you this would be a lot more fun if they wore jerseys that said “Legally Suns” or “Suns 1070” or “ARIZONA Suns,” but I wouldn’t ever expect that from a group of elitists who are ultra-PC and sometimes clueless due to their own arrogance.
As I’ve watched this unfold I have been completely disgusted by two things:
1) The complete and total misrepresentation of what the law is, what it is intended to do, and how it will be carried out.
2) The utterly contemptible reactions that are based purely on misrepresentation.
There is a serious lack of understanding on the matter because no one is doing any research. They just hear what is being said and then spout off their opinion.
I went through the bill with a fine tooth comb and having lived in AZ for 9 years and in Mexico for 2 years, I feel like I have a good background to formulate an accurate picture of what is going on see my post on SB 1070
The only thing I have against professional sports organizations being politically active is they are almost always wrong — at least in the last 30 years. I will only tolerate the ignorant opinions for so long because at a certain point you have to stand up for your principles and reject this type of activism even if it means giving up something you enjoy participating in, such as professional sporting events. In the mean time I’ll voice my opposition to bad judgement and at some point I will become active myself in protest of such bad judgement.
