Chipper Jones has always come across as the old school, ah shucks, country boy. On Wednesday the former third basemen of the Atlanta Braves made some tweets in regards to bullying that are sure to raise a few eye brows.
Jones is clearly making reference to the Rutgers situation and coach Mike Rice. Rice was fired on Wednesday after video tape of his practice sessions were played on ESPN’s Outside the Lines and then appeared online.
The tweets of Jones go against the views expressed by others such as Lebron James who tweeted “If my son played for Rutgers or a coach like that he would have some real explaining to do and I’m still gone whoop on him afterwards! C’mon” after seeing the video of Rice.
