Apr 10, 2012 07:27 AM
 
Ozzie Guillen has been suspended for five games as a result of his comments admiring Fidel Castro. Is this a fair punishment?

johanToya: "Anybody else would've been fired, but this is just "Ozzie being Ozzie""
SilverWulf1: "What's ridiculous here is that the Marlins KNEW what they were getting when they signed him. And now they want to punish him for it. "
nswcbama: "When you live and work in a city that is almost 70% Hispanic and a large section of that is of Cuban discent, you build your new stadium in the heart of a part of town called "Little Havana", and you hire a manager that you hope will be able to relate to the large Hispanic population, you would hope that he would have sense enough to know what would be out of bounds."
SportsFan206: "I disagree completely with his comments, but I thought this was America where you can say what you want to say. I'm not sure I like the idea of someone being suspended for saying he admires a person, no matter how disgusting that person happens to be."
LAHomersofAnaheim: "He is allowed to say what he wants, but his employer is allowed to suspend him too. Freedom of Speech is only there between an individual and the Govt. It has nothing to do with employees and employers."
Realbrick Michael: "His tarnishing of "the game" far outweighs any contribution he makes to his club or MLB in general. Toss him!"
