John Rocker George Jaenicke grjaenicke I have been reading the story of John Rocker over the past few weeks, and have this comment. I do not agree with his personal opinion that was quoted in Sports Illustrated, however this is his opinion and although it may be upsetting to most and certainly not politically correct, it is his opinion.

Why should anyone in this country be deprived of his livelihood because he elected to say what he thought. This is wrong. He is being treated as though he were convicted of a crime, his only “crime “ was stupidity. I am not a John Rocker fan by any stretch of the imagination. However I think that it is a sad commentary on today’s society when someone has their job taken away from them because he elected to state his opinion .
