Sanchez, on the other hand, is a leader on the team due to the position that he plays. He's expected to make better decision and to act more responsibly.
It's a double standard to be sure, and some might argue that it's unfair. But it has a completely rational basis.
If you will, it's like in a big company, if the CEO gets a DUI, he could easily lose his job. But if an hourly employee gets a DUI on the same day, he might receive some sanction from the company, but he'd most likely retain his position.
Why is this concept eluding McGinley? I don't think it really does, he's a smart poster, but I think he's projecting some Pats hate on me and he's surely going to project some Tebow hate on you, so get ready.
