Not Paid to Talk

22 Jul

Today I received a comment about my "Standard Sports Interview" post. It said, "They're not paid to talk."

Wrong!  These professional athletes are obligated to talk to the media; it's in the contracts. They're not doing it because they're such good guys. Hence, if their primary language is English, they should do their professional best to sound smart to an English-speaking fanbase. This isn't an unusual expectation; it's what should be expected of any American with a high school education.
