Most normal people get upset watching March Madness, what with their brackets being busted. There are some who, according to the Internet, get upset over a coach yelling at his player. As was the case with Michigan State Coach Izzo yelling at player Aaron Henry. Because in 2019, people are too fragile to see sportsball players being coached by their coaches. This led to an excellent rant on Sportscenter by Steve Coughlin.
He starts off by saying that it isn’t about “snowflakes” and “being soft.” Then he lays out exactly why it’s about snowflakes being soft.

It feels good to have something positive to write about ESPN. For a change.
Here’s the most important thing said in the video. “People” were upset at the coach: sports magazine, entertainment sites, and other dishonest clickbait farms. Not upset? The nineteen-year-old player he was yelling at. Or his teammates. Basically, anyone who was actually involved in the situation was not upset about the situation.
All the “outrage” came from people in the cheap seats. As is usually the case. Like people outraged over restaurant workers working for tips. While the restaurant workers working for tips would prefer it if those people would STFU.
The lesson here is to just shut up about your outrage over that which doesn’t deserve your outrage. Save it for something that matters and do something positive about it.
