I only wanted to post this because it contains a quote of the year


"That's all news to me," former Georgia coach Vince Dooley told the paper. "All I know is whatever personality he had when he had the football was the one I liked."

That was a great quote (from that story). "Whichever personality had the ball was the one I liked best." - LOL.

I predict this thread will stay serious for about 5 posts. Maybe.

I see lots of "Signed by" jokes in the future.

This is why he always referred to himself in the thirdperson because he was actually the third person in a conversation. :splits:

So did part of him keep wanting to play in Dallas and the other was excited to go to Minnesota?

610 (Rich Lord) made a joke about him taking on all of the personalities of the people involved in that big trade...

I feel sorry for Herschel. It must be very hard to live life like that.

NEW YORK (AP) - Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker once played Russian roulette with a loaded pistol as he struggled with a personality disorder.
"To challenge death like I was doing, you start saying, there's a problem here," he said during an interview to be broadcast Monday night on ABC's "Nightline."

Walker suffers from dissociative identity disorder, formerly known as multiple personality disorder. His experiences are chronicled in his book, "Breaking Free," which is released this week.

The 46-year-old Walker was a star running back at Georgia and in the pros. He says he had the condition during his playing days but didn't realize it. He doesn't remember winning the Heisman in 1982 or darker events, such as threatening his then-wife.

Walker has been in treatment for eight years but doesn't take medication. He believes he has improved greatly.

"I've totally changed from back then to where I am today," he says.

Dissociative disorder is a terrible thing. In Walker's case it may have helped as no one knew who to tackle.

I think it's BS. He's marketing to sell his book. I happen to agree with this article (http://www.sportsline.com/columns/story/10782722).

What Walker possesses is a severe case of what doctors call trying to sell a book.


Here's why I agree with this guy. Walker was never a media guy, and you never heard a peep from him after retirement... yet, now that he has a book coming out, all this is coming to light. I don't buy it.
