Washington Commanders fine defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio $100,000 for his comments about Jan. 6 — usatoday.com
Del Rio referred to Jan. 6, 2021, as a “dust-up” rather than the preferred-by-many term “insurrection.”
In a statement released by the team, coach Ron Rivera said, among other things:

“This morning I met with coach Del Rio to express how disappointed I am in his comments on Wednesday. His comments do not reflect the organization’s views and are extremely hurtful to our great community here . . .”
What a great place to work! You’re not allowed to have a thought and say it out loud without having it pre-approved by “the organization.”
I’m also surprised that even the most dysfunctional crybabies find the use of the term “dust-up” hurtful, let alone “extremely hurtful.”
Maybe it’s just me . . . I don’t think that way. I think I would find losing an eye or a limb extremely hurtful. I mean, that does seem like it would be hurtful in the extreme.
But to be confronted with a dissenting opinion, I can bear up under that very easily.
I hope the next thing to happen here is a statement from Del Rio back to the organization saying “I’m not willing to give up my right as a man and an American to think and speak freely, which I believe is granted to me by God and the Constitution, even though I may at times say something that other people don’t want to hear. I’m also not willing to be publicly humiliated for the benefit of dysfunctional crybabies. Therefore I resign effective immediately. Sincerely fucking yours, Jack.”
