The Cubs acquired Aroldis Chapman. Did they sell out for the World Series?
ESPN writer Sarah Spain, a lifetime Cubs fan, argues that players like Chapman reveal a major issue in sports. It’s not that players don’t deserve second chances, but Chapman refuses to even acknowledge that he did anything wrong. Players like Chapman tarnish the community that teams like the Cubs creates.
@SarahSpain Those who watched OJ: Made in America and now ignore the story of a woman hiding in the bushes calling 911, God speed.

Sports is about cheering on imperfect people because it's not necessarily about the individual, it's about the team and the community. Here, John J. Fleming explains his personal experience with doing so.
