Deadspin on Luke Scott

Deadspin on Luke Scott

So, after reading the ESPN article that was linked to the other day, I was left feeling pretty disturbed.  After thinking about it for a bit I came to the conclusion that I just don't like Luke Scott. I was never a huge fan of his anyway, but the comments about throwing plantains in Pie's helmet and calling him an animal pushed me over the edge. (Even if its benevolent, that's still racism.  Plenty of people over the years have been those fatherly kind of racists, and its no more excusable in my eyes) I was glad to see someone wrote something about it that was more critical; I don't really like Deadspin much anymore as I don't agree with some of their tactics, but Emma Carmichael writes some pretty good stuff, and I think this is worth looking at.  

People don't like to hate on players on their own teams, as evidenced by all the love for Vick from Eagles fans, or Lakers fans love for Kobe, but when I don't usually have trouble.  Like, I'm a Packers fan and now I hate Brett Favre, and I can tell you its not because he played for the Vikings.  I still want Scott to do well obviously because he's an Oriole, but I sure wouldn't want to talk to him ever. 

I'm curious to see how other people feel about it.
