    oh I have no doubt that things have already been 'explained' to him, and to all of his family members too.

    I don't agree. Why can't an athlete have an opinion but any shlub with a twitter can have an opinion?

    People always rag on athletes for canned answers until they give a legitimate answer and then they're ragged on for that too.

    I think people should stay away from twitter, facebook all together, especially if you're any kind of celebrity. its nothing but trouble.

    I agree that athletes, like all others, have every right to publicly express their honest opinions on a wide range of topics including politics, religion, and the opposite sex. I also agree that doing so is fraught with peril for local stature and job security.

    Too easy to spread wrong/bad ideas. People are too dumb to realize, or actually think for themselves. Maybe my expectations are too high, but I expect better from people.

    And this isn’t taking political sides, or anyone is right or wrong, and I haven’t listened/thoroughly read the Panarin interviews, but I think we can all agree that this happens on all sides.

    no kidding - talk about hockey, yourself, or shut up and play. Nobody wants to hear what athletes think about politics, it just ruins sports in general which is supposed to be a diversion. Be a Trumper or Hillarian in private I don't care and I don't want to hear anything about it or their social agendas

    I blame ESPN more than anything for veering political for controversy and ratings. They've done so much damage to the enjoyability of sports in general

    That's all well and good, and very easy to say when you live in North America or Western Europe.
    It's a different story when you come from a corrupt, tyrannical dictatorship like Russia. The more people with influence who speak up against that regime the better.
