Stephen A. Smith claims that several athletes have tried to get sports reporters fired from their jobs after taking offense to their commentary.
“You got to understand that everybody has a job to do. The last thing they want to do is come up to you and ask you that question. They have no choice because their job is on the line, and no matter how bad your game was that day, your contract guaranteed, and it’s for a gazillion times more than that journalist made,” says Smith in the clip.
He adds, “You know, you got cats that, and they’re gonna remain nameless as players because I’m not going to do that to them. But when I went hard on a couple of superstar players, I happen to know for a fact they tried to get a couple of journalists fired, and it’s because the journalists asked them about something that they were hearing.”
Are the athletes crossing the line?
