Baseball HOF voters ask to amend ballots after Curt Schilling supports Capitol "riot"
LINK

quote:

The fallout of the Capitol insurrection on January 6th that left five dead has now made its way into baseball conversation as numerous Baseball Hall of Fame voters have asked to amend their ballots after controversial QAnon believer, Curt Schilling supported the mob.

Schilling has been a lightning rod during his entire tenure on the Hall of Fame ballot for his alt-right conservative views, including posting a picture to his Twitter account of someone wearing a tee-shirt that read: “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required” with Schilling added the comment, “OK, so much awesome here…” That didn’t exactly endear himself to the writers who would be voting for him.

But it has been his increase in vitriol around the 2020 election, and his unfettered stream supporting the unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud that has made Schilling a unique case for the voters. That has culminated in a series of videos and posts to his Twitter account regarding the Jan. 6th event at the Capitol:

President Elect Curt Schilling

He's either worthy or he's not. OJ is still in the Pro Football HOF.

Now politics trumps murder?

This is beyond petty.

And we thought they were being stupid with Rose.

Yeah. Screw the voters on this. His politics is none of their business. Seems like a perfect time to bring up the old Coach Bryant saying when asked to contribute $10 to the funeral of a sports writer. "Heres 20....bury two"

Sports writers are proving that they will not sit idle while athletes claim the title of 'Biggest Douche Bags'.

Hard to argue with that, in a humorous way, of course.

It’s not the hall of politics it’s the hall of fame. His personal beliefs have nothing to do with what he did or did not accomplish in baseball.

Journalism has long been dead. It’s bled into sports and it’s rotting

When thinking about his mental stability, you gotta remember he spent his savings on developing a video game.

I think he should seek a professional in mental health.

There’s a reason why nobody likes the media. They’re nothing but self-righteous a-holes.

And this is exactly everything that is wrong with sports today. Sports writers are egotistical, yet mentally shallow, myopic idiots

ETA- not all but so many that are on the national level

It’s not like the baseball HOF means a hill of shite anymore with how they’re pretty much letting anyone in these days with the Todays Game Committee

It also must mean Curt made it in with them asking people to do this. He was at 70% last time.
