It bears in mind that players aren't simply sheep and have their own opinions s well. I thought it was a very courageous thing that he did. Almost a decade later, no one has a good thing to say about that war.
this is also a very strong point. employers really shouldn't have the right to compel their employees to support any political stance.

mahmoud abdul-rauf comes to mind as well.
