Not sure if this has been posted (if it has, please delete).

This segment was on NFL countdown on ESPN yesterday.


I know the story has been discussed here, but I hadn't heard about Richardson's trip with him. He may not be the most football savy owner in the league, but the man runs a business that any of us would be proud to work for.

JR gets a lot of criticism for being a hardliner in league negotiations, but you cannot impugn the man's decency and commitment to his employees.

oh crap. i hate being a softy sometimes. literally got me tearing up.

as a parent, you remember all these fears when the baby is in the womb worrying (even though you probably shouldn't) "what if there's something wrong with the baby?" unfortunately it happens and i hate it for them to be going through this. it looks like they have a healthy grasp on it all. they have been definitely in prayers of mine. i don't know them, but that doesn't matter to me. whether it's someone i know or not, i hate seeing people go through things like this (and please don't turn that into somekind of religious debate...this isn't the place for it, imo.)

i had seen and read other reports about it but what really got me was then they started talking about richardson getting involved. there's no way i am ever going to say anything disrespectful about that guy. he's got a big heart for his players. bitch about him all you want about his role in the CBA or ref talks, but there's no denying that when it truly matters he does what he can for his own.
