Lee Elia cusses his own fans
April 29 1983 was not a good day for Lee Elia. After his Chicago Cubs moved to last place in the division with a home loss to the LA Dodgers, Elia felt the need to rant. And boy did he...
After being asked a question about the local support, the manager unleashed an absolute sharknado of abuse about the guys who cheer/jeered for his team.
What Elia said was so filled with profanity that i cannot reproduce it here. But some heavily edited soundbites include:
"The mother***** don't even work. That's why they're out at the f***** game. They oughta go out and get a f***** job and find out what it's like to go out and earn a f**** living. Eighty-five percent of the f***** world is working. The other fifteen percent come out here."
You get the gist. Elia was upset and he showed it alright.
Amazingly, he also did not get fired! What do you have to do to get fired?
