"We have addressed this matter with Mike"

Whatever happened to free speech?!

I refuse to be somebody I'm not in order to please the PC world that I live in. It's OK to bash Christians but not homosexuals. I don't bash anybody, but I don't support it either. Flame me all you want.

Btw GO STEELERS!

You better learn to understand quickly Mike, your gonna run into plenty of "he-she's" down there in Miami. You ain't in Steel-town anymore.

That's because Christianity is a choice. Fine if you choose non-evidence based beliefs, just don't try to impose it on secular society.

He can say whatever he wants, and so can you, but that doesn't mean there won't be repercussions for it. Most of us certainly cannot say whatever we wish in our workplace and rightfully so. Free speech has limits when you represent a company and are in a working environment. Part of the deal with professional sports figures is that they are "always on the clock" per se. Anything they say in public, especially in print/text, can come back to haunt them. They have to be careful of what they say because at all times while they are under contract, they are representing the particular franchise they play for.

Sure they can have an opinion, but it has to be within reason. What Wallace Tweeted reeks of ignorance and that's why the Tweet is now gone. The team stepped in and told him it wouldn't be tolerated. They have every right to protect their brand and to attempt to keep their employees from alienating ANY of their fan base... regardless of sex, race, color, creed, religion, or sexuality.

So yes, he does have free speech, but it doesn't mean he has free rein.
