We hope and assume the final chapter in the Saskatchewan Twitter/Player/Scandal has been written.
The Canadian Football League has handed out a fine to the Stampeders Bo Levi Mitchell. He, in the opinion of the league, violated the league’s social media policy, so he has been fined.
Mitchell accepted the fine, acknowledged his errors and has moved on. That’s called leadership.
Compare his response to the Saskatchewan response to their various transgressions. Can anyone say needless distraction?
The Stampeders leader has put this on his shoulders and has taken responsibility. Was it his place to tweet about Saskatchewan’s issues? Probably not and he was fined accordingly.
But Mitchell, and by extension, the rest of the team realize what the task at hand is.
And that task isn’t running around feeling persecuted by the Canadian Football League!
