It has nothing to do with a "cult of masculinity". I don't care who you are. If you're in the public eye and you just had your ass handed to you by your boss, don't call a press conference for THE SOLE PURPOSE of crying publicly.


Right, because that was his whole goal - to get up there and cry.

You really should consult a mental health professional.

I figured that analogy would work best since I assume that's where most of you geniuses are probably employed. But you can make up your own scenario. Just think about your place of employment and ask yourself if you wouldn't find it the least bit pathetic if a guy started weeping as he was getting fired and as he left.


Ok, well your analogy was garbage. It paralleled what these guys do in no way other than the simple fact that it was their job.

If I worked for a place for 9 years as hard as Jake has worked, made as many friends doing it, met as many people, had as much fun, went through as much poo, saw as many people come and go, etc. etc. etc. then yes, I would tear up at the end.

It's pathetic to you, because you're an festering unsympathetic turd that has no respect for football players of Delhomme's character.

If you're so jealous about the money then why the fug do you even watch the games? All you see is a bunch of over-paid sissies running around.

Crying/Showing emotion doesn't make any man any less of one.

I was calling for Jake to be benched since the 1st quarter of the Arizona playoff game and I called it when he stunk it up any game prior to that as well. I also pulled for him and cheered him on to the fullest with every great play he made. That man laid his heart out there on the field.

If you want to make a joke of that, you're a joke. He has a right to cry. Those of you taking delight in his show of emotion can suck donkey balls. You mf's couldn't hold Jake's jock for one second, now STFU.

You honest believe he called this to cry on camera don't you?

Maybe he called it to say goodbye to the 72,000 that showed up to support him every other week? Maybe, just maybe, there's an ounce of decency in him? Ever consider that?

All of you should quit arguing because SMF is clearly the toughest guy on the internet.

It doesn't matter what his goal was because that's ultimately what happened.

I am a war vet and have watched my friends die from IED's and snipers. That would be a reason to cry. I really enjoyed Jake Delhomme as our QB but, getting emotional over being released from a team? Come on now guys. The demasculinization of our country started with men getting manicures and pedicures and has turned into our football heroes BALLING ON TV!! give me a break and grow some testicles please


Yes that would be a reason to cry.

Yea, and over-masculinization starts a lot of wars fights, kills innocent people etc etc etc

It is ok for a man to cry ONLY under the following circumstances:
a. When a heroic dog dies to save its master.
b. The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse.
c. After wrecking your boss' car.
d. One hour, 12 minutes, 37 seconds into "The Crying Game".
e. When she is using her teeth.

I get SMF's point. Lets be real Jake is making serious dollars right now whether he plays or not he is set for life. Things will go on. Football is just a game to us regular folks but it is the lively hood of the players.

The football aspect is beyond money imo. Think about it. We all had dreams of being in the NFL. A guy playing football all his life, doesn't get drafted, works his tail off in NFL Europe to be the back up on a shitty NO team, never gets his chance to be the guy despite some good showings. Then a franchise takes a chance on you to be their future and you nearly lead them to a SB, followed by several high and low seasons. They both showed alot of faith in each other and it is something to get emotional about. Losing something you love always hurts.

His goal was to purposely cry on camera. He didn't have any other motive.

Remember?

And this is offensive to you?

Jake is one of the last of a dying breed, To Jake football is a sport, not a business.

How many times have we seen this man go down hurt and haul his ass back to the line and get us down find so John could win the game with a field goal? Everytime Favre does that he's lauded as a man's man, a working class hero. When Jake does it, it's not accounted for. It was just Jake being Jake.

He's entitled to a few tears.
