Please expound I'm actually very curious why some people HATE him.
I always liked Schill, seemed like a classy guy to me. Some people seem to F***in hate him though. The Music DJs on the radio this morning(which used to broadcast across the street from Fenway) were talking about him. The only thing that I heard from them that could change my mind was that the said he would repeat things that were said in confidence in the locker room, but it could have been heresay and conjecture. IMO, these DJs, while entertaining, are not the brightest lamps, they make statement that I know for a fact are incorrect all the time.
Schilling had his opinion and wasn't afraid to share it. How many Professional athletes will go on an established forum and take criticism for his pitching performance and reply to average Joes about the current state of their team?
He was a hard worker, ethical, and outspoken about some of the douche bags playing the game and for this he gets **** on. I really don't understand it. And at least it's not during the game that he makes his political statements. I can't tell you how much I can't stand when musicians get on their soap box during concerts. I paid $120 to hear your MUSIC not your political views about my president, go back to England you Rich ****!"
I don't get why there is the hate. Schilling was perhaps the most consistent starting pitcher this decade and to do all of that clean is alot more impressive to me than these homerun totals by players on the juice. 11-2 with at least 10 starts in the post season is a major league baseball record. Not one overpriced, overrated yankees pitcher can be close to claiming that ever.
