For the record, I was lobbying for a Stephen Jackson trade far before Mullin pulled off the deal with Indy. I've also always been a fan of TO, Vince Carter, Tony Stewart, Curt Schilling, and pretty much anybody that the sports media considers "an ass".
These guys are hired to play; not to be model citizens. To me, being upset with a sports player over his off-the-court behavior is on the same level as being upset with a president that gets his knob slobbed in the White House. It has nothing to do with his job.
You can hate Bonds all you want, even though I'm 90% sure you've never met him and base your argument that he is "an asshole" off what the media has told you. Performance is really the only thing I'm interested in when it comes to sports. When a guy takes his jersey off, its no longer my business.
