    Default Ozzie Guillen suspended 5 games.

    Full Story

    Is it just me or is this a little messed up? It looks pretty clear that the majority seem nothing wrong with it, but I mean, it is a little ironic. The guy says he respects a former Communist and

    If this happened in like Boston or Colorado would he have gotten the same punishment?

    He said something along the lines of "I love and respect Fidel Castro".

    Thoughts?

    I don't think he should be suspended for this. Cuba is harmless. There's some humor to this. America is becoming a fascist state, Guillen gets suspended for pretty much saying he respects the leader of a socialist state.

    considering it's vice city a cuban hotbed there is a problem with saying it.

    outside miami i dont think it's that big a deal.

    but, to me ozzie seems like a very sarcastic driven guy and it's such a random question.

    i mean if he's just randomly like "i love fidel and respect for staying in power so long".

    but, the reporter asked him and he probably thought it was so random, that he kind of blew it off and answered sarcastically.

    i think its a bit much. But, you have to back your fans they pay the money.
