As an addendum to this morning’s story about Brian Cushing, the football writers have, after a re-vote, decided to allow Cushing to keep his Defensive Rookie of the Year award despite the fact that he had tested positive for a banned substance before the season started.
Like I said this morning, the notion of going back and changing awards votes is not necessarily the smartest or most useful thing to do in the world, but can any of you imagine the baseball writers refusing the chance to strip a known PED-user of an award? I can’t.
I’m not sure if that makes the baseball writers too vindictive or the football writers too apathetic, but I think it’s a pretty telling insight into the differences between baseball and football PED politics.
