* Richard Sandomir, New York Times:

Andrew Shaw and Curt Schilling insulted the gay and transgender community in recent days. But how they responded afterward suggests that one of them (Shaw) comprehends the ramifications of what he did, and the other (Schilling) does not.

Shaw, a Chicago Blackhawks forward, was suspended for Game 5 of his team's playoff series against St. Louis on Thursday night for shouting an anti-gay slur after being sent to the penalty box during Tuesday's game.

"I get it," he said after being disciplined by the N.H.L. "It's 2016 now. It's time that everyone is treated equally."

Schilling did not choose the road to contrition after he shared a post on Facebook that was an apparent response to the North Carolina law that bars transgender people from using bathrooms and locker rooms that do not correspond with their birth genders. On his blog, he snarled at "all of you out there who are just dying to be offended so you can create some sort of faux cause to rally behind."
