I have a problem with all the players on the cheating team.
Every single one, including Fiers.
Fiers doesn't get to be the guy with the integrity or the conscience here. That's all I'm saying.
He has exactly equally as low of integrity as everyone else on the team.
Integrity would have been refusing to look the other way while your cheating team is benefiting you.
If he had integrity, he would have told the team, "stop cheating or I'm leaving the team and telling the press what's going on."
I'm not singling out Fiers, as you imply I am, I'm actually doing the opposite. I'm saying he's in the same group as all the other players that didn't say anything.
You want to rip Fiers, rip him for multiple documented issues with underage girls in various locations around the league.
There are some who did say something on that team and were still overrun. I do believe that expecting someone to walk away from their job is a bit altruistic from the outside looking in. It's one reason whistleblowers (an absolutely vital part of a capitalistic society) are farther and fewer between. Those who do whistleblow are exposed (nice job with that, MLB), which is supposed to be illegal, lambasted as traitors or snitches, and even face retribution, which a gangster-glorified society finds merited punishment.
