I don't think what Scott said was that big of a deal, but I also don't think admiring good sportsmanship is being overly PC.

[Scott] is joker, you can't take what he says seriously half of the time. Charlie White said as much after the GPF and given the two of them know each other so well, I think Charlie is probably far more credible than some self-claimed saints on internet, just my $0.02.
I think this says as much about Charlie as it does about Scott.
