  1. Not buying it says:

    This might be slippery slop into suppression of personal freedoms for men by enforcing paternity leave on fathers in the near future as the ultimate goal, the whole idea behind it is not the will being of father’s so they can spend some time with their offspring but to eliminate obvious differences between sexes, the reason I suspect that is that enforcing paternity leave on fathers is one of the stated suggestions by advocates of feminism adherents to eliminate obvious income capacity & potential on part of males.

    If it’s paid paternity leave, I think it’s great especially if they’ll be making what their contract says they would make if they were on the roster. If that were the case, it would be nice if they gave them up to a week. I don’t think you can go too much more than that with this being major pro sports. If it’s unpaid or a reduced pay like the major league minimum then they should definitely allow them to take at least a week. I wonder what would happen if the fill in player does well and he loses his roster spot.
