I can understand that but I still would hate that for any child I saw a little girl with a 49ers cap on crying her eyes out at that NFC championship game and it absolutely broke my heart :/ I love children and want them each to enjoy life and have their heros and be happy that gave me quite a negative view of things like that
Your team isn't going to win every game. You're not going to be successful at everything in life. NFL teaching life lessons it seems like.
Okay but imagine if you will the effect that has on say a little kid who looks up to that player that's being humiliated on television it's hard to take for some children to see their heros made fun of and it's not even necessary these men are paid to play a great game there's nothing wrong with being an entertainer but why should anybody be made to feel like a less than ?
If a parent can't explain to their child that all the players (for the most part) respect each other but say stuff to try and upset them in order to force them into mistakes....
Well sorry, but that's a parenting problem.
BTW, Football players may not be the best role models for Children. At least the majority of them. Their role models should be their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings etc.
The rest of the league looks at Cam as a villain. Every time he runs into the endzone and opens his imaginary cape, that isn't out of "respect" to his opponents. Lance Stephenson isn't liked by many just because of his antics in the playoffs. Both have a great amount of confidence and make their respective teams better. I'm cool with a little bit of attitude in the QC.
Beat me to it. Every time Cam does the Super Cam he's putting the spotlight on himself. You think he doesn't know the rest of the League hates it, and that it rubs the opposing Defense's nose in it? Yep he does. Does it stop him from doing it? Nope not at all....
If everyone was quiet and respectful of their opponent there would be no such thing as rivalries and the league would be extremely boring. Everyone loves the classy players like Peyton, Jeter, and Durant, but we would be fooling ourselves if sports only included that type of personality. We need villains.
Bingo, and honestly if a "villain" can get into an opponents head and help the Panthers win a ring I'll take a "villain" any day...
Of course we have D Will and J Stew for now, along with Barner, but I believe that we were trying to groom a replacement in Gaffney. We all know how that worked out. I think that it's a strong possibility that the 49'ers may release Lattimore, from South Carolina Gamecocks. If they do, I think that he'd be a great pickup for us. If they don't release him, I'd be willing to part with a 6 or 7 round pick if they'd go for it. What do you guys think?
While talented, there's no guarantee the dude's knee is ever going to be right. You can't use a spot on your 53 man roster to bring that on imo.
Alright that's enough interest for me to make a league. If I get some downtime today I'll put one together on ESPN, but coming back from vacation since last Friday so it may be tomorrow or Saturday before I create one.
