I think all of us are going to be watching for this and seeing how it plays out, because we all know it's only a matter of time. What JDR said was kind of dumb IMO, but people say similarly-dumb things in the other direction all the time.
The reason why this story is is troubling is because it isn't like JDR used a slur, told a sexist joke, disrespected the national anthem, or anything like that. This seems like a nice, clean example of punishing someone for wrongthink. To be clear, Del Rio really is wrong, but wrong about a political issue shouldn't have any professional consequences. Everyone posting in this forum, me included, is wrong about lots of stuff, after all.
What exactly was he specifically fined for? Is it there can be no criticism of the BLM riots or that he does not take J6 as seriously as he should? I would love to see the team and/or the league's HR policy with regard to why he was actually fined.
