Didn't really need this event to shine a light on a pathetic football organization. But it does sting.
All you 'company men' can start your codes of conduct jargon now.
If you meddle in your contractors hiring / firing decisions, then they are not independent contractors they are employees. Employees that you never paid payroll taxes for, never paid unemployment tax for, never contibuted to their 401K, never let into the health insurance plan, etc etc etc. If you are a real business, you don't want to go there. So you don't interfere when your contractor enforces their workplace rules.

its mind boggling how far fans will defend their team/athletes.
People aren't "defending their team" it's just that we have actually had jobs in the real world.
A little unsolicited advice for you: get a real job (your allowance doesn't count). Then kiss your mommy goodbye and move out already. Apartments have microwaves and laundry rooms, you will survive. (It's OK to go to mom's on Sunday night for dinner. But you can't move back in).
