After reading Mike Preston’s “As Ravens’ COVID-19 outbreak grows, heads should roll and Harbaugh needs to step forward” (Nov. 27), a reader is reminded of the consistent excellence and courage of this insightful columnist.

Yes, it is difficult to protect players, he rightfully concedes, but when those overseeing decisions act recklessly, endangering others’ lives, there must be consequences and not a free pass for a “whatever will be, will be” blasé attitude.

Mr. Preston, the best at his craft, has been speaking to classes at Towson University for years about the cultural role and complex issues sports columnists face and students have correctly raved about him throughout that time.
