    Pillar became a Jay that was very fun to watch and just an all around likeable person. Kids look up to this guy he can't be saying shit like that especially when millions of people are watching.

    I know he didn't use it in a malicious way against gays but he has to deal with the backlash that he's going to get. And no it shouldn't just be a fine cause that's just a slap on the wrist.

    So how many days in jail should he get?

    Just noticed Travis isn't in the lineup either lol. They are definitely making sure as few good players as possible can get hit
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    It's an interesting discussion man. You want to involve the work aspect...and while he is technically at work you have to acknowledge there's a massive difference v. an accountant.

    I actually think most could get away with calling someone a hooligan or a barbarian (even thug or redneck) at a typical work environment without anyone turning a blind eye.

    I'll ask again. If Pillar calls Motte a cocksucker....does he get suspended? Are we talking about this?

    I don't agree that language can't change, as I changed. 'm not offended by anything personally, I actually had a person tell me that they anally raped my mother (ball hockey) and I laughed hysterically at it (then he punched me). I can and will do my best to watch my language and I will point out when I think someone is doing something wrong. If they don't listen, oh well. Maybe someday someone will give a shit when I say something.

    Regardless of what I think, you think or anyone else. Kevin Pillar the baseball player is a business man, he has hurt his business (and the team he plays for in some way). He has to react as the twitter universe is already out for blood. I am always interested how these things get handled. Those that handle it correctly don't hurt themselves really.
    Answer: who gives a shit. Doesn't change the relatively benign intention behind his insult.

    When did you morph into such an authoritarian pussy?

    Which of these should Pillar be held accountable for saying?
    You're seriously like the annoying kid in class who asks questions just to sound smart, even if you don't know why you're asking the question in the first place.

    You are correct, I did as so many others here do, and changed the scenario. In the end the scenario does not matter. I believe that if you, I, anyone uses this word in the their workplace they should be punished. Not by social media, just by his employer. I thought he gave a good apology and the Jays handled it well too.
