Stephen A. Smith learned the hard way that you can’t always say what you feel. Especially when you’re talking to billions of people EVERYDAY! The amount of time and years it takes to gain respect of your peers and fans can be lost in one minute, just by saying the wrong thing! Stephen, what were you thinking? Why didn’t you learn from those who came before you who tried this and failed? The power of the tongue is to be used for good, not for disrespecting those who rely on your thoughts, ideas and perspectives, even if it is just about sports. You know the slogan; WORDS HURT! So the next time you decide to say what you feel, remember sometimes “silence is golden”!
