When we hit our Annual February Injury Blight (you know the one- where we are missing half the roster and people throw tantrums because we lose an occasional game)
C- Lids (will not get injured)
A- Tatar (until he gets injured)
A- Exelby (until he gets injured)
A- Janik (until he gets injured)
A- Hudler (won't get injured; will instead lead the team in scoring)
A- MacDonald (due to the fact that he's the only call-up left who doesn't have an Ohio license plate)
I didn't even know what a Commodore 64 was until people explained it here, but now I have to admit that I'm disappointed. I like numbers that aren't the run-of-the-mill type things. It's cool that he did the charity thing, though.
Great post. Thanks for putting the time into that reply.
People get tired of talking about it, but I don't feel people realize what's really going on, and i'm glad you seem to have your "eyes wide open" on the situation.
Not a problem. The aliens beamed it down from the Mothership that fabricated Obama from left-over DNA from their home planet. The government is now in their hands. They want us to question authority so that there will be anarchy. We are doomed.
If a player needs rehab, that is a personal problem for the player and is none of our business. For a normal, average, everyday person, the thought of entering rehab and having family, friends, coworkers, and people in general finding out is tough enough. For someone in the public eye, it is magnified a thousandfold.
Not only do you have your boss, the chatty lady at the next work station, the librarian, and the church ladies looking at you differently, you also have total strangers judging you when they really know nothing about you except for a few sound bites here and there.
It would be much easier for the player to go in anonymously, and then, after having dealt with the original problem, decide how to handle it publicly. The initial outing could be enough to drive a person away from getting needed help.
If you've not been there, you have no idea.
Our "right to know" does not extend to their personal lives. They may be public figures, but they are people too, and their lives and families are far more important than whether we'd opt to have them on our fantasy team.
If they need privacy, they deserve it just like any other person; and being in the public eye, they need it more.
