The intersection of sports and social awareness meets daily criticism and throwaway introspection. Yet, there are moments that live in infamy or legend, depending on the point of view of the fan.

 

With the George Zimmerman verdict still being discussed in vicious and rapid tones, it was hard to ignore how some of sports' most popular figures have responded; most notably through social media.

 

On The Exchange, Sumit & Jason are joined by Ken Fang of the venerable sports media site Fang's Bites and Awful Announcing to talk about the reactions by athletes. Defying the concept of "just shut up and play" brought out swift and volitaile crtiques from fans and media members alike, but how fair or foul are they?

 

Possibly on some lighter notes, they will also continue to discussion on baseball in the modern television landscape as the Major League Baseball All-Star Game takes center stage.

 

Come through The Exchange in the chat room, on Twitter (@skd_thExchange, @asportsscribe & @fangsbites) and the phone lines at 347-202-0247 or 619-639-4601.
