No not at all. Seriously though I probably wouldn't go to the funeral of even my closest friends mom unless I had a relationship with his mom as well. The only thing that would get me to show up is if the person specifically expresses a desire that I show up.  

 

When a friend loses a family member I will do my best to support and send my condolences, but the funeral is very personal to the family and friends of the deceased.

No. I have only ignored two people in all my years on the Huddle (Dexterity, and some guy who doesn't post much), and if I had to ignore a mod, then that person shouldn't be a mod.  I know that CRA didn't care for Williams on a professional level, and I am not surprised Panthro feels the same, but I really don't remember them bashing Deangelo on a personal level (not saying that they didn't, but I didn't see it). Sure, it's one thing to say the guy got overpaid for warming the bench, and it's another thing to say that he is a social media oddity that grated on your nerves (which is a personal problem), but it's quite another to say that he is being petty and vindictive at a time when he is getting cut and still feeling some type of way about how J-Rich---in particular---handled his mother's passing.

 

thank you.  some people can't separate the two.

 

I would love Williams even today if he had a salary/cap hit a 32 year old RB of his current ability deserved....and proper insertion into the committee.  As for the years after his contract, it was never about him personally.....about the scenario the FO created.  Most simply saw Williams and negative and flipped. 

 

Same stuff when I dared mention prior to 2013 that 89 was likely done anytime now....I was deemed to "hate" 89.  No, he is my favorite player to date.  But with a new GM/HC that didn't draft.....an old man being a pain in the rump was going to be shown the door if he didn't retire early on his own.  Life and business of the NFL.

 

I also thought Beason was done.....then that mean I hated him too.  Beason was awesome.  But injury is injury.  Can't hope everyone will defy odds and be a Thomas Davis.  Gotta play the smart odds majority of the time and move on.

 

I disliked Dave when he was hired....but he pretty much has removed all the real issues this team has.  I like his approach.  No more soapboxes for me in sight.

Btw....she died the Friday of the weekend of the rookie mini camp.

This was directly after the Hardy incident. He was not under any kind of suspension or discipline.

I don't think it tarnished his image...guys tend to struggle with being cut/released (especially the highly paid former stars).   That isn't uncommon.

 

You aren't gonna see a lot of guys handle it like Delhomme.....the 89, 34, maybe even Beason slipped a little jab here or there is more likely IMO.

 

So he remains what he was.  Our best RB to date.  No one will really care he got upset about the owner and his mom.

 

Needle doesn't move IMO

Honestly, I'm little surprised that JR didn't show for his mom's funeral. Not sure what the etiquette protocol is, as far as how close you have to be to someone to attend their family members' funeral. I'm also not sure whether or not Deangelo should feel pissed.

Me personally? I might feel a little slighted if no one from the company I worked for showed up to my mom's funeral.

Much as I like both you guys and don't doubt your knowledge, I hate when people do the "I know stuff...but I can't tell" thing.  Drives me nuts :lol:

 

But hey... B)

I'd say slightly. Why even bring it up? I don't think less of him, but I will always remember him mentioning it. But at the same time, I'm surprised only one showed. May right? Draft time for coaches, and family time for players. They may have had good reasons.....who knows?

Yeah.               He reminds me of a petty child.    His mama passed away.......and the part he holds onto for months and then complains about after his release.........is "They didn't reach out to me".  He is a grown man,  with his own family,  his own support system. 

 

 

 

Not everyone I thought would show up,  showed up to my mother's funeral,  I didn't try to shame individuals afterward though,  for not attending because it is fuging childish.

No. He answered a question. The only ones making a big deal of it are those who think their dick is bigger than everyone elses or have no idea how to see things through other people's eyes.
