Give Royals a break* John Steadman's lambasting of the Kansas City Royals for the waiver of Bo Jackson was ridiculously off base. Why in the world should the Royals show loyalty and devotion to Jackson when Jackson has never demonstrated these qualities to the Royals? The Royals' front office would have given Jackson the world if only he would have concentrated on baseball, a concession his ego would not allow him. Now he's seriously injured as the result of his pursuit of a "hobby," and his future in any sport is in peril.

The Kansas City Royals were well within their rights to release hobbling Bo Jackson, said an overwhelming majority of respondents to "It's Your Call."Faced with paying a $2.375 million contract, the Royals were wise to release Jackson, said 64 percent of the 474 people who responded to The Evening Sun's phone survey on topical issues. Only 169 (36 percent) said the Royals should have held on to the injured outfielder."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
