Rob Parker: “These players are HUMAN BEINGS, they’re not cattle… You know I love baseball, but do you want 800 players to leave their wife and kids during a pandemic to play a damn baseball game in front of nobody so MLB can get their money from the networks? REALLY?? YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! DANA WHITE HOW DARE YOU! How dare you want to take these people away their families to some deserted island so you can put a damn event on television, and YOU can make money… They need to think about the players and their families. What kind of guy would want to be away from his family for three months and be isolated and not be able to make love to their wife or hug their children? Are you crazy? Is it so selfish that they should work and we should sit there unemployed and watch them. Think about the gall of that.” (Full Audio Above)
