    Curt, Curt. Come on, man. If you're gonna offer social commentary, just tell women not to get themselves beaten up. Or be a shitty NBA "insider."

    Ordinarily, I'd be concerned about Schilling being made a martyr for political correctness. But as a Rhode Island taxpayer...screw that.

    I'm sure Fox News will have a spot for him.
    Tweener and Lugnuts like this.

    The free market continues to speak on the issues of gays.

    Next time, just couch it in religious mumbo jumbo. And be black.

    It ain't that tough to learn that once you are suspended for violating the policy on political speech TWICE that you should probably just keep it among your friends. I have zero sympathy for this asshole.

    Did he actually make a comment or did he just share the stupid meme without comment?

    How many chances does ESPN need to give him? He says something extrordinarily stupid every few months, like clockwork. They have every right to dump his sorry ass.

    Correct. A policy was put into place, largely because of him, and he can't abide by it. So long.

    Under the NC law supported by Schilling, huge bulldyke lesbians can still storm into the bathrooms, leap over the walls of the stalls, and grab your sweet little daughter.

    As long as they're not crossdressers.

    Actually, I think leaping over the walls of bathroom stalls is already illegal, regardless of your gender.

    Schilling knew exactly what he was doing, probably figured his contract wouldn't be renewed anyway.
